Porsche 911 Turbo S stock model aims to snatch Pikes Peak record from Bentley

Porsche 911 Turbo S is gearing up to create a new lap record at the legendary Pikes Peak Hill Climb event, where it targets to beat Bentley Continental GT's record with a stock model. Porsche claims that this bone stock 911 Turbo S with a lightweight package would help the German high-performance luxury car brand from the Volkswagen group regain the title it lost to Bentley Continental GT. Interestingly, the British car dethroned the 991 generation 911 Turbo S, which held the record from 2014 to 2019. The event is slated to take place later this month.

Porsche claims the 992 generation model of 911 Turbo S plans to run with a lightweight package, which would help it to beat the Continental GT's time of 10 minutes and 18.488 seconds. The car draws power from a 3.7-litre flat-six twin-turbocharged engine that is good to churn out 640 hp of power and 800 Nm of torque. This highly powerful engine's turbocharged will help the motor breathe at the high-altitude event.

Porsche claims that the lightweight package decided to be used in the 911 Turbo S at the Pikes Peak event comprises reduced sound insulation, thinner glass, and rear seat PASM sports suspension that comes lowered by 10 mm to the ground.

Also, the removal of rear seats and fixed carbon bucket seats at the front too help in reducing the car's overall weight significantly. The automaker has claimed that the lightweight package reduces the overall weight by 36 kg, ensuring better acceleration and speed.
