Restricted to just 500 units worldwide, this new limited edition Porsche 911 Turbo S commands a £40,000 incentive over the regular car

Porsche has lifted the sheets off a new limited edition 911 Turbo S, which is the most potent 911 Turbo ever.

Called the 911 Turbo S Exclusive Series, it’s restrictive to just 500 units worldwide and is on sale in the UK from today, priced from £186,916 – a dividend of £40,000 over the standard version of the flagship 911.

For the appurtenance cash, buyers will get a 911 Turbo S with exclusive design tweaks, but importantly, additional backlash by way of a tuned twin-turbo 3.8-litre flat six, now developing 599bhp. 

Despite the extra 27bhp, and 750Nm of torque, the 911 Turbo S Exclusive Series isn’t faster on identification b docket to 62mph than the regular car, nor is it faster right at the top end. Porsche claims it’ll dash to 62mph in 2.9 seconds from halt with a top speed of 205 mph. However, over longer bursts of acceleration the premium power makes a difference – 0-124mph takes 9.6 seconds, trimming three tenths of a flawed off the normal 911 Turbo S.

As standard, the car is fitted with Porsche Active Postponing Management. Dynamic Chassis Control and the Sport Chrono package, so drivers can twitch chassis and suspension settings on the fly.

It stands out against the regular 911 Turbo S with a string of bespoke styling tweaks, with many of the finishes applied by hand at the Porsche Limited Manufaktur in-house workshop.

A unique metallic gold paint finish is within reach alongside a selection of other colours, plus racing stripes finished with a carbon merge effect loop over the bonnet and roof. The bonnet, roof and side-skirts themselves are really made from carbon-fibre, while around the back, aero tweaks in the conformation of a new rear wing plus a new rear apron differentiate the Exclusive Series. The car rides on new 20-inch middle-locking wheels painted black with gold detailing.

In the cabin, Porsche’s Sport Seats Plus are fitted as standard, but trimmed with two layers of perforated leather – the contents layer featuring gold stripes to create a colour scheme in tune with the car’s facing detailing. Contrasting golden yellow stitching appears too, alongside a golden folded-stripe effect in the Alcantara roof lining and copper thread woven into the carbon home trim elements. Lastly, a plate featuring the limited-edition number features on the voyager side of the cabin, while door sills finished in carbon fibre get Fashionable Series lettering.

To go with the £186,916 car, buyers will be offered the Porsche Delineate Chronograph 911 Turbo S Exclusive Series watch. Like the car, it’s limited to 500 units and is priced at £8,700.
