2014 Porsche 911 Turbo S 0-280 km/h test [video]

Seriously fast

Sport Auto's Christian Gebhardt had the opportunity to test a 2014 Porsche 911 Turbo S even though the car won't go on sale until September.

He drove a pre-production unit which could explain why the 0-62 mph (0-100 km/h) took a bit more than the official 3.1 seconds. Porsche says the 911 Turbo S is capable of reaching a top speed of 197.6 mph (318 km/h) thanks to a 3.8-liter, six-cylinder engine developing 560 HP (412 kW) sending power to all four wheels via a seven-speed dual-clutch PDK.

The Turbo S model comes as standard with full LED headlights with four-point DRLs and camera-based main beam control which is optionally available for the lesser Turbo variant. Both versions have a four-wheel steering system taken from the GT3 model and should be able to lap the Nürburgring in less than 7 minutes and 30 seconds.

Pricing for the 2014 Porsche 911 Turbo S kicks off in Germany at 195,256 EUR (VAT and country-specific taxes included). The regular Turbo model costs 162,055 EUR.

Notice there was a passenger during the 0-280kph run, which means there was extra weight, would be faster without the extra payload
