Limited Edition Porsche 911 Turbo S Exclusive Series Launched - When the regular Turbo S isn't special enough...

There is a new limited edition Porsche 911 Turbo S for sale called the 911 Turbo S Exclusive Series. It is most likely to be fully sold out by the time it officially reaches any showroom anywhere. It has been officially launched today (8th June 2017) and aside from the fact that since it is an 'S' series 911, which means it is super fast, it will also be 'hand' finished at the  new Porsche Exclusive Manufaktur at the headquarters in Zuffenhausen. 


The new 911 Turbo S Exclusive Series has 607hp, 750Nm and is limited to 500 units worldwide. In addition to a power increase of 27 hp from its turbocharged flat-6 3.8liter engine, 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. 

As mentioned above, it has more personal hand finishing than any regular 911. Not that I really care as Porsche 911s are usually nicely finished these days. I am more thrilled with the 0 to 100 km/h in 2.9 seconds, and the 9.6 seconds to hit 200 km/h  figures. The fastest 'regular' production model Porsche has to offer.

The Porsche Exclusive Manufaktur, 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, if you're interested, Porsche customers can have the matching chronograph and custom fit luggage from Porsche Design configured in the same design as their sports car (pictures below with the media release). 

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 officially launched on June 8, 2017.  Be quick about it though. People have money to burn these days and 500 units may be easily unloaded in no time.

Intricately refined sports car from Porsche limited to 500 units

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

Stuttgart. 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, higherquality

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 limitededition

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

in-house 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,
