The new 911 Turbo S Exclusive Series from Porsche is the most powerful and unique edition of the iconic, all-wheel drive turbocharged sports car.
Limited to 500 units worldwide, the exquisite coupé offers a power output of 607 hp (446 kW). In addition to a 27 hp increase from its flat-six twin-turbocharged engine, the 911 Turbo S Exclusive Series is distinct in many other ways from the standard 911 Turbo S. It stands out courtesy of its unique design, high end choice of materials as well as manufacturing methods, and luxurious details.
The sports car is intricately finished by hand in the Porsche Exclusive Manufaktur at the company headquarters in Stuttgart-Zuffenhausen, Germany. Previously known as ‘Porsche Exclusive’, the in-house workshop specialises in tailoring to customer wishes as well as being responsible for limited series production. Furthermore, for the first time ever, Porsche customers can have the matching chronograph from Porsche Design configured in the same design as that chosen for their sports car.
Increased power and performance
The 3.8-litre, flat-six cylinder twin-turbo engine with an exclusive power kit has a maximum torque of 750 Nm, delivered between 2,250 and 4,000 rpm. This translates to the 911 Turbo S Exclusive Series accelerating from 0-62 mph in 2.9 seconds, and where conditions allow it will take 9.6 seconds to cross the 124 mph threshold. The sports car can reach a top speed of 205 mph. Fuel consumption of 31.0 mpg Combined equates to the same as that for the standard model, and corresponds to 212 g/km CO2.
The 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) further improves handling and provides even higher stability, particularly when cornering and in high speed lane changes.
The feature which particularly distinguishes the 911 Turbo S Exclusive Series is its exclusive Golden Yellow Metallic paint finish and the various components in carbon; such as the bonnet, roof and side skirts. The two carbon-weave strips that contour the roof and bonnet accentuate the purposeful, sporting stance of the car. The rear view is characterised by the spoiler of the Turbo Aerokit, a new rear apron, the ram-air scoop in carbon and the exhaust system with two twin tailpipes made from stainless steel finished in black. The wheel arches are decorated with ‘Porsche Exclusive Manufaktur’ motifs.
The 911 Turbo S Exclusive Series rides on black-painted 20-inch wheels with centre lock hubs as standard, and their design lines are carefully traced in a Golden Yellow Metallic finish using a new laser technology. For the first time, the brake callipers for the Porsche Ceramic Composite Brake (PCCB) brake system are available ex-works in a black-painted version with the Porsche logo in Golden Yellow Metallic.
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 Plus are trimmed 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 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.
For more than 30 years, Porsche customers have been able to enjoy extensively personalised 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.
Porsche Design Chronograph to match the car
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 sporting 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 car. 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.
Customers can also enjoy the unique Exclusive Series design outside of their car with the leather Exclusive Series luggage set that has been developed specially 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 holdalls, the day bag and the suit bag are a perfect fit for the luggage space available in the 911 Turbo S Exclusive Series.
Unveiled in the UK at Highclere Castle, Berkshire
The 911 Turbo S Exclusive Series is priced from £186,916, and available to order at Porsche Centres from 8 June. It was unveiled this week in the UK at a customer preview event at Highclere Castle, Berkshire.

The Porsche Design Chronograph 911 Turbo S Exclusive Series is priced at £8,700 inc VAT. The watch can be configured to the customer’s requirements when they buy their vehicle, and is also available at Porsche Centres.
