Feature Flick: 2014 Porsche 911 Turbo and Turbo S Show Off

Our first look and listen of the 911 Turbo and 911 Turbo S in action.

Porsche took the wraps off of the all-new 2014 911 Turbo and 911 Turbo S this morning. Now, we have a tantalizing clip showing the two sports cars in action and a little tease of their ferocious exhaust notes.

In case you missed the announcement, the 991-generation 911 Turbo and Turbo S follow the same formula as the outgoing 997-generation car by adding forced induction to the engine found in the tush of the 911 Carrera S. Here, that means a twin-turbocharged 3.8-liter flat-six uprated to the tune of either 520 hp and 487 lb-ft of torque (Turbo) or 560 hp and 516 lb-ft (Turbo S). Porsche expects the new 911 models to make a 0-60-mph run in just 3.2 seconds for the Turbo and a scant 2.9 seconds for the Turbo S. For a point of reference, the mighty Bugatti Veyron makes the run to 62 mph in 2.46 seconds.

Don’t let the video below fool you with its epic soundtrack – if you wait through the first 35 seconds of the 55-second clip, your ears will be treated to the sonorous soundtrack of the flat-sixes that power the 911 Turbo and Turbo S. That said, watching through the first half-minute isn’t exactly torture, since it features the silver 911 Turbo and white 911 Turbo S racing along dessert canyon roads.

If this quick clip tempts you to run to your nearest Porsche dealer, don’t rush just yet. The 2014 Porsche 911 Turbo and 911 Turbo S don’t go on sale until later this year, starting at $149,250 for the former and $182,050 for the latter (both prices including destination charges). Porsche also tells us that the drop-top versions should follow shortly, in case you want your high-powered acceleration with extra wind in your hair.
