12 June 2017 - Autoblog
In true Porsche tradition, the company has developed yet another variant of its 911 Turbo line, and unsurprisingly, it's a very limited edition model.
The new 911 Turbo S Exclusive Series will live up to its name as only 500 examples of the car will be produced. It also can boast to be the most powerful 911 Turbo S the company has produced, as it makes 27 more horsepower than the "basic" Turbo S for a total of 607. Torque doesn't change at 553 pound-feet of the stuff, and the top speed of 205 mph remains the same, too.
This exclusive Turbo S model will be instantly recognizable thanks to an array of exterior upgrades fitment of the Porsche Exclusive Manufaktur "Turbo Aerokit" that includes a rear wing, engine cover air scoop, and other aero bits around the car. It also has exposed carbon fiber stripes on the hood and roof, custom wheels with Golden Yellow Metallic accents, and Porsche Exclusive Manufaktur badging. The car is also available to be painted in the ostentatious Golden Yellow Metallic, as well as more subdued hues.
Inside, the gold theme is continued with 18-way adjustable leather seats that feature a top black layer of leather perforated to show yellow stripes from the additional layer of leather below it. Stitching also comes in the golden color, and the carbon fiber trim has had gold-colored copper woven into it. Each of these 911 Turbo S models will also have a badge inside denoting its limited-production status, and they come with a titanium chronograph watch. Custom luggage is also available for extra cost.
As for the cost of the car, Porsche hasn't set pricing for the United States, but it has priced it for Europe. Over on the Continent, the 911 Turbo S Exclusive Series will cost €259,992, which comes to about $291,250 at current exchange rates. That's also roughly $100,000 more than the base price of the standard 911 Turbo S.
