Porsche Exclusive presents a custom 2014 Porsche 911 (991) Turbo

Article by Christian Andrei, on February 5, 2014

Porsche revealed on its Facebook page a bespoke version of the 2014 Porsche 911 (991) Turbo customized by Porsche Exclusive. Featuring a Lime Gold Metallic exterior paint, the vehicle comes with clear taillights, black five-spoke alloy wheels but also with a two-tone interior, carbon fiber trim and a three-spoke steering wheel wrapped in Alcantara.

The vehicle comes with the same 3.8-liter six-cylinder engine with direct petrol injection that produces 520 hp. With this amount of power, the Porsche 911 (991) Turbo hits 100 km/h (62 mph) in 3.2 seconds and has a top speed limited at 318 km/h or 197.5 mph. For those who don’t know, the new Porsche 911 Turbo also introduced rear axle steering, a system that improves everyday performance but also circuit racing performance.

The new system features two electro-mechanical actuators instead of the conventional control arms on the left and right of the rear axle. The steering angle of the rear wheels can be varied by up to 2.8 degrees, depending on vehicle speed. At speeds up to 50 km/h, when the front wheels are turned the system steers the rear wheels in the opposite direction. At speeds above 80 km/h, the system steers the rear wheels parallel to the turned front wheels.

This is equivalent to a virtual lengthening of the wheelbase by a significant 500 mm and gives the sports car tremendous stability, especially at high speeds. Furthermore, the 991 Turbo features the Porsche Active Aerdynamics (PAA), that consists of a sturdy, retractable three-stage front spoiler, whose segments can be pneumatically extended, and a deployable rear wing with three adjustable wing positions.
