2017 Porsche 911 Turbo S Exclusive Series gets the Midas touch treatment plus 607 hp

Article by Christian A., on June 23, 2017

Porsche definitely adores variety. You’ll see what we mean if you browse through the official company's website that shows a plethora of various 911 models. And now, the German marque will add one more to the collection: the new high-powered, limited version of the 911 Turbo gets a bright yellow finish and it definitely is premium looking.

The Stuttgart-based company has gifted us once again with another 911 automobile, and this is the most expensive-looking automobile coming from Porsche to date. We welcome the 911 Turbo S Exclusive Series. How exclusive… you may want to know. Only 500 units will be produced worldwide.

But this 2017 Porsche 911 Turbo S Exclusive Series will not only flaunt its unique yellow aesthetic, it also comes with exceptional power. In fact, it’s the most powerful 911 Turbo S ever.

Exterior Design

The biggest noticeable asset of the latest 911 is its Golden Yellow Metallic finish, which will be exclusive to this series only.

The eye-catching finish is further enhanced by carbon-weave stripes with added carbon fiber on the ram-air scoop seen in the back. Latest 911's side skirts, roof and hood are also carbon fiber, and the sports car also dons a new rear apron.

The German marque also revealed that there is another array of carefully chosen colors available if you do not dig the yellow metallic finish on your 911.

Interior Design

In the cabin, the 18-way sport seats will be getting 2 layers of perforated leather adorned with golden stripes on the innermost layer to distinguish the exterior aesthetic. The seams of the vehicle feature yellow stitching and the Alcantara headliner will also acquire a pair of yellow stripes.

At both sides of the latest 911, carbon sill plates with Executive Series logo are seen, with yellow embroidered Turbo S lettering on the headrests rounding up the aesthetic upgrades of the interior.

However, yellow is the only available color specifically for the interior trim unlike the exterior colors that come with plenty of options. Furthermore, completing the sleek look of the 911 are black brake calipers for the PCCB ceramic braking system decorated with a gold Porsche logo.

The 911 also flaunts an identically trimmed set of black 20-inch alloys and comes standard with Porsche Active Suspension Management. The rear-axle steering paired with Porsche's Dynamic Chassis Control helps to manage its tremendous power.

Powertrain

Its 3.8 L biturbo six engine has been installed with a power kit to enable it to produce an impressive 607 hp, which is 27hp more than that of the base Turbo S. And because of the timely upgrade, the Exclusive Series 911 can accelerate to 60 miles per hour in only 3 seconds.

Price

The good stuff doesn't end here, as Porsche will offer a rare production of around 500 chronographs with patterns that are inspired by the 911. A matching set of leather luggage will also be up for grabs.

911 Turbo S Exclusive Series can be yours for €259,992 in Germany ($293,000). Meanwhile, the watch (which can be tailored to address the buyer's taste) will require an additional $11,000 and the luggage will cost an extra $6,200. The Porsche 911Turbo S Exclusive will be officially launched on June 8.

A rarity with increased power and luxury: the new 911 Turbo S Exclusive Series

The new 911 Turbo S Exclusive Series from Porsche is the most powerful and unique 911 Turbo S ever. The Coupé provides 446 kW (607 hp) and is limited to 500 units worldwide. In addition to a power increase of 27 hp, the 911 Turbo S Exclusive Series is distinct from the standard 911 Turbo S due to its unique design, higher-quality materials and luxurious details. The sports car is being intricately finished by hand in the new Porsche Exclusive Manufaktur at the headquarters in Zuffenhausen. Previously known as “Porsche Exclusive”, the in-house workshop specialises in tailoring to customer wishes, as well as being responsible for limited-edition series. And for the first time ever, Porsche customers can have the matching chronograph from Porsche Design configured in the same design as their sports car.

Increased power and Performance
The 3.8-litre, six-cylinder biturbo flat engine with an exclusive power kit has a maximum torque of 750 Nm, delivering between 2,250 and 4,000 rpm. This means that the 911 Turbo S Exclusive Series accelerates from 0 to 100 km/h in 2.9 seconds, and takes 9.6 seconds to cross the 200 km/h threshold. The sports car can reach a top speed of 330 km/h. Fuel consumption is the same as the standard model at 9.1 l/100 km combined. This corresponds to CO2 emissions of 212 g/km. The 911 Turbo S Exclusive Series comes with black-painted 20-inch wheels with central locking as standard, and their design lines are carefully finished in Golden Yellow Metallic using a new laser technology. For the first time, the brake callipers for the PCCB ceramic brake system are available ex works in a black-painted version with the Porsche logo in Golden Yellow Metallic. The active sports chassis with Porsche Active Suspension Management (PASM) and the Sport Chrono package are included in the standard equipment. The rear-axle steering and Porsche Dynamic Chassis Control (PDCC) rolling-motion compensation improve handling and provide stability.

Exceptional design
What makes the 911 Turbo S Exclusive Series so distinctive is its exclusive Golden Yellow Metallic paint finish and the various components in carbon, like the bonnet, roof and side skirts. The two carbon-weave strips that contour the roof and bonnet accentuate the sporty look of the car. The rear view is characterised by the rear wing of the Turbo Aerokit, the new rear apron, the ram-air scoop in carbon and the exhaust system with two twin tailpipes made from stainless steel in black. The wings are decorated with Porsche Exclusive Manufaktur plates. In addition to Golden Yellow Metallic, the vehicle is offered in a range of other carefully selected exterior colours.

Master craftsmanship in the interior
The passenger compartment is both elegant and unique. The 18-way adjustable sports seats are covered in two layers of perforated leather. The inside layer has two stripes in Golden Yellow, guaranteeing a unique effect. The seams and the Turbo S lettering stitched on the headrests are also in contrasting Golden Yellow, and the roof lining is made of Alcantara with a Golden Yellow double-stripe look. Fine copper thread is integrated into the trim strips of the carbon interior package. The plate featuring the limited-edition number on the passenger's side underlines the car’s exclusivity. The door entry guards, also finished in carbon, come with illuminated Exclusive Series lettering.

Truly hand-crafted
For more than 30 years, Porsche customers have been able to enjoy extensively customised individual pieces. With the introduction of this new limited production run, the sports car manufacturer is beginning a new chapter: Porsche Exclusive will now be presented across the globe with the new “Porsche Exclusive Manufaktur” brand. This inhouse workshop specialises in bespoke Porsche modifications. The range of services available also includes advising customers, developing special equipment options for each model range and producing limited production runs.

Exclusive Chronograph from Porsche Design to match the vehicle
The Porsche Design Chronograph 911 Turbo S Exclusive Series represents the first time that Porsche Design has released a Chronograph for limited production run customers that has the same design features used in the actual vehicle. The exclusive Chronograph combines the characteristic features of Porsche Design watches with the character of the 911 Turbo S Exclusive Series. Just like the vehicle, it is limited to 500 units. Its housing is made of lightweight titanium, and its black titanium carbide coating emphasises its sporty design. The carbon dial is taken from the striking carbon weave stripes on the 911 Turbo S Exclusive Series and finished in the actual paint used on the vehicle. The rotor design is modelled on the rims of the 911 Turbo S Exclusive Series and painted in the original colour. The winding mechanism features a typical Porsche central lock with the Porsche crest on the movement.

High-quality accessories
Customers can also enjoy the unique Exclusive Series design outside of their vehicle with the leather Exclusive Series luggage set that has been developed especially for customers who buy a vehicle from the limited production run. The visual details on the luggage set as well as the dimensions of the two hold-alls, the day bag and the suit bag are the perfectly fit for the luggage space available in the 911 Turbo S Exclusive Series.

Prices and sales launch
Prices for the 911 Turbo S Exclusive Series including VAT and country-specific equipment will start from EUR 259,992 in Germany. It will be launched on June 8, 2017. The Porsche Design Chronograph 911 Turbo S Exclusive Series will be available in Germany, starting at EUR 9,950. The watch can be configured to the customer’s requirements when they buy the vehicle and is available at Porsche Centres. The luggage set costs EUR 5,474 in Germany and is available in conjunction with factory collection or from Porsche Tequipment at any Porsche Centre.
