2016 Porsche 911 Turbo S

2016 Porsche 911 Turbo and 2016 Porsche 911 Turbo S revealed

August 26, 2016

Porsche has revealed the 2016 Porsche 911 Turbo (facelift) and 2016 Porsche 911 Turbo S (facelift) and announced that both models will premiere at the 2016 North American International Auto Show in Detroit in January.

The facelifted models have a new front fascia with tweaked air intakes and new lower grille and LED daytime running lights. On the sides, there are new 20-inch wheels wrapped in 9 J x 20 tyres at the front and 11.5 J x 20 tyres at the rear; the wider tyres were already available on the 911 Turbo S before. The new door handles come without plastic shell inserts like on the 911 Carrera models. At the rear, there are new tail lights, a new engine lid and a revised rear bumper.

The interior sees the addition of new Porsche Communication Management (PCM) infotainment system. There’s also a new GT sport steering wheel of 360 mm in diameter. Its design has been adopted from the Porsche 918 Spyder and has a rotary ring with stepped positions for selecting the preferred driving mode from the four available – Normal, Sport, Sport Plus or Individual.

The Porsche Stability Management (PSM) now includes a new PSM mode. A short press of the PSM button on the centre console puts the car in “a very sporty mode” independent of the selected driving programme, and a long press of the same button deactivates this mode. Both models can be equipped with lane change assist and a lift system for the front axle that allows the driver to increase the ground clearance by 40 mm at the front lip spoiler at low speeds.

  1. Re: the new 20-inch wheels wrapped in 9 J x 20 front tyres — yes, I’ve been saying for awhile now they should go to the wider tyre on the 911

    • I know. More specs are in the news release too.

  2. The Proche 911 never goes out of style.

  3. Google the “Porsche Communication Management (PCM) infotainment system” & you’ll be impressed. It’s about time.

  4. Sometimes the Volkswagon brands are becoming less interesting over time. Hopefully these are spared the boring.
