Porsche has unveiled the new generation 911 Turbo S, the top model of the 911 series. The sports car is offered in both coupe and convertible versions, and boasts a new 3.8L biturbo boxer engine capable of delivering 650 horsepower (70 hp more than the previous generation), and acceleration from 0 to 100kmh in just 2.7 seconds. The new 911 comes with a maximum speed of 330kmh thanks to an 8-speed PDK gearbox.
