The best Turbo ever? The Porsche 911 Turbo S Exclusive Series has beaten the performance bet by adding an extra touch of personalization and luxuryIt does so through the new Porsche Exclusive Manufatur department that replaces the formerly known as Porsche Exclusive, born in 1986, a division that in turn replaced the initial Porsche Sonderwunsch Program. This department within the reach of the most special Porsche customers is where dreams really come true, and it is that in our visit to the Rössle Bau factory in Zuffenhausen there was a word that we heard repeatedly; “infinite”, always referring to the customization possibilities in each department. And that folks is the quintessence of every car lover, even more so having behind him more than 30 years of experience and a history of historical gems with names like 935 Street, Flachbau, 959 or Turbo S Leichtbau.

During our visit We have been able to meet those same craftsmen who will manufacture each and every one of the 500 units of the special series Porsche 911 Turbo S Exclusive Series. From the painting work to the leather treaty, there is talk of processes that combine the most modern technology with the tenacity of artisan work. To show an example that perfectly sums up the degree of refinement and dedication. Each Turbo S Exclusive Series rim is manufactured through a forging and milling process, then painted by hand with a metallic gold yellow primer and a subsequent glossy black final coat, after drying each rim is processed using the action of a laser of great precision that removes the last layer of paint to bring out a golden line on the black paint whose dimensions and finish are perfect at every point. These are the most labor-intensive and labor-intensive rim designs ever used by Porsche and are an exclusive addition to this limited series.

Like this detail, we can find dozens throughout the vehicle. A carbon fiber hood that combines exposed fiber with gold paint in such a way that the lacquer and hand polish match both surfaces to offer a finish that is as attractive as it is difficult to achieve. Lacquered carbon fiber interior inserts that add copper threads as a chromatic nuance. Without forgetting, of course, the possibilities of finishing in leather that reach such a degree of commitment to the color palette that they allow from covering the interior air diffusers to the ceiling of the passenger compartment, passing through an impressive set of suitcases whose leather, design and finish is identical to the interior of the Porsche 911 Turbo S Exclusive Series. And to all this you can add a final icing, a majestic watch manufactured by Porsche Design, inspired by this limited series to such an extent that it is manufactured using the same paint and carbon fiber as your order, being later signed with the same numbering of your unit to make it the ultimate complement.

In the aesthetic section, the changes with respect to the rest of the Turbo range are evident and are mostly part of the Turbo Aerokit that introduces new splitters, aerodynamic attachments and the rear spoiler in two pieces with a retractable upper part. The Manufaktur specialists have also added carbon fiber parts such as the air inlets on the rear wheel arches, the air inlet on the propeller, the roof with two subtle humps, the rear view mirrors or the specific exhaust that with its outlets. Rounds and their greater sonority confer a unique signature behind the Turbo S Exclusive Series.

Yes, the Porsche 911 Turbo S Exclusive Series is much more than a Turbo S with 27 more hp.

At a technical level, the Porsche 911 Turbo S Exclusive Series maintains the powertrain and chassis of the Turbo S. Its mechanics have been revised to offer a 27 hp gain that brings final power to 607 hp at 6,750 rpm, keeping the maximum torque at a whopping 750 Nm between 2,250 and 4,000 rpm. With such figures the Porsche 911 Turbo S Exclusive Series signs a 0-100 Km / h in 2.9 seconds and reaches 330 km / h.

Perhaps you still have in your memory our last duel between the Nissan GT-R and the Porsche 911 Turbo S, and if so, you will remember our sensations when it comes to unleashing the 580 hp of the Porsche 911 Turbo S, not so much in its huge kick, but in terms of its amazing ability to pull when you activate the Launch Control and the chrono starts. Today there are many sports cars that offer Launch Control systems, but believe me that Porsche has quite possibly the most efficient, so much … as to take your breath away during those few seconds where the vehicle shudders at the mercy of its 750 Nm of torque. . Simply awesome!

At the controls of the Porsche 911 Turbo S Exclusive Series I find the same feeling that the Turbo S gave me. If you analyze it carefully there is a mixture of the highest level of technology and engineering that can be overwhelming, however sitting in its comfortable bucket you only perceive the simplicity and effectiveness with which you destroy chronometers without even blinking. Fast, incredibly effective and astonishingly accurate, the Porsche 911 Turbo S can only be defined as the perfect machine after seeing how it can draw with a pencil no matter what pace you set. Sublime.

In this limited edition full of refinement, Porsche has not neglected for a second the true essence of the Turbo saga, the highest performance. The most obvious proof of this is that after starting up its delicious double turbocharged 6-cylinder Boxer mechanics, you forget all its qualities as a work of craftsmanship, all your senses are alert to a torrent of sensations that pass at an exaggerated speed high. The Turbo S Exclusive Series looks imposing when stopped, but in motion it is a precision machine that takes you above 300 km / h with the most advanced technology that exists today in automotive engineering. Each of these 500 units offers a unique and incomparable cocktail where different personalities come together, finding a leading car of the best collection, a GT of the highest luxury, but above all a work of engineering art where it is worshiped. sportsmanship and experience in competition.
