The revamped and rejuvenated 2017 Porsche 911 Turbo is scary fast, and the Turbo S is even faster. So just how fast is the 2017 Porsche 911 Turbo?
205 MPH Top Speed… For the Track
That’s right, you read that number correct. The 2017 Porsche 911 Turbo has a top speed of 205 mph. That is actually the top speed for the Turbo S trim.

That makes the 2017 Porsche 911 Turbo faster than the previous model by 2 mph and the Turbo S faster by 7 mph.
What Makes It Go?
Powering the 2017 Porsche 911 Turbo is a 3.8-liter twin-turbo engine. In the base model, this engine cranks out a whopping 540 horsepower and 523 lb.-ft of torque. The Turbo S model is given a higher redline and new turbochargers to spit out a massive 580 horsepower and 553 lb.-ft of torque. These engines are unique because they utilize a dynamic boost function. This helps to maintain the boost pressure when you release the accelerator, meaning that when you give it the gas again, all that boost is still there for your everlasting enjoyment.
And How Do We Shift It?
Well, sorry manual lovers, but here is where you might be a little disappointed with the new vehicle. There is no stick shift option in the 2017 911 Turbo. However, the PDK dual-clutch automatic is still lightning quick and there is a manual mode. Plus, at these speeds, who wants to have to worry about missing a shift up or down?
