Geneva: Porsche 911 Turbo S Returns

Porsche has chosen Geneva to show off its ability to clearly understand what every owner wants - more power please!

Yup, the all new 911 Turbo S has appeared at the Geneva motor show, all 530bhp of it. This all new 911 variant has 30bhp more than the 'standard' 911 Turbo, as well as most of the toys that are options on the regular model.

The extra boost gets it to 62mph in 3.3seconds, to 124mph in 10.8seconds and on to 195mph. It also comes with Porsche Ceramic Composite Brakes to make sure you can scrub off all that speed. If you need to, that is.

You also get Dynamic Bending Lights, 19in RS Spyder Design Alloys with a central locking nut, a PDK gearbox, sports seats, cruise control... You name it, it's got it.

The Porsche 911 Turbo S will hit showrooms in May and should retail for £123,623 in Coupé form and £130,791 in Cabrio guise. Either way, it's about £21k more than a 'standard' 911 Turbo.

    Fantastic piece of kit.

    But if you were to spend that much on a 911 I'd want something a bit more GT-3 / 2 or RS for my money.

    Im sure that it is a fantastic piece of kit, as quick as anyhting and really well made, but it just doesnt float my boat at all.

    993 GT2 looked amazing, as did the 964 turbo s, but this just looks too plain for my tastes. And whats with the wheels, they look like a cheap aftermarket set.

    Only my tastes though, before getting shot down

    Better colour and those RS front wing track widening trim pieces and spacers it would look subtle but good, and its def quick enough.

    typical cool Porsche, fast, capable, understated, and not highly strung, if only i had the readies.bow
