Porsche 911 Carrera Turbo S Rent in Dubai
For those unsatisfied with the performance aptitude of the regular 911, the Porsche 911 Carrera Turbo S Rent in Dubai deliver added power and attitude. While these two iconic nameplates haven’t yet transitioned to the next-generation 911 platform—codenamed 992—they remain incredibly potent and insanely athletic sports cars. With timelessly gorgeous styling and coupe or cabriolet body styles, the 2019 Porsche 911 Turbo twins are equal parts show and go.
The Porsche 911 Carrera Turbo S Rent in Dubai, which come in familiar, understated coupe and cabriolet body styles, are the pinnacle of the automaker’s most revered nameplate. At their heart—albeit located in their tails—is a twin-turbo 3.7-liter flat-six that develops 573 horsepower in the Turbo and 640 in the Turbo S. Along with spine-tingling yawps at stratospheric rpm, the engine delivers neck-snapping acceleration. After all, the 911 Turbo S is among the quickest cars we’ve ever tested. Helping achieve that historic status is standard all-wheel drive and an eight-speed dual-clutch automatic that ranks among the best. While we wish there was a manual option, and though we found the sportiest suspension setup to be overly stiff, the 911 Turbo and Turbo S offer a sublime driving experience that even some more exotic supercars can’t replicate. This helps them earn a spot on our Editors’ Choice list.
To unlock the entirety of the 3.7-liter six-cylinder’s 640 horsepower, you’ll need to spring for the Turbo S model. While the drop-top cabriolet version is enticing, we’d take the coupe for its purity of purpose. In addition to its tremendous power and standard performance upgrades, every Turbo S comes with 18-way adjustable sport seats, 10.9-inch touchscreen infotainment system, Bose surround-sound stereo, carbon-fiber interior trim, and Porsche’s Sport Chrono package.
Hanging out in the rear of Porsche 911 Carrera Turbo S Rent in Dubai is a twin-turbocharged 3.7-liter flat-six engine that makes up to 640 horsepower in the more powerful of the two variants; the regular Turbo model makes 572 horsepower. All-wheel drive is standard and shifts are handled by an eight-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission. Porsche claims a zero-to-60-mph time of 2.6 seconds for the Turbo S, but at our test track it blasted to 60 in just 2.2 seconds. Aside from the explosive acceleration, the 911 Turbo exhibits insane levels of cornering grip and strong brakes to boot, making it a true performance powerhouse. The cabriolet variants are slightly heavier than the coupe, but the drop-top Turbo S we drove proved equally thrilling.
Regardless of body style or engine output, the Porsche 911 Carrera Turbo S Rent in Dubai are rated at 15 mpg in the city and 20 mpg on the highway. We tested a Turbo coupe on our 75-mph fuel-economy route, and it earned 27 mpg on the highway. For more information about the 911 Turbo’s fuel economy, visit the EPA’s website.
As with all 911 models, the Porsche 911 Carrera Turbo S Rent in Dubai are technically four-seaters, although the rear seats aren’t usable by adults. The cabin mirrors that of the entry-level 911 Carrera models but with racier trim, more expensive options, and plenty of standard technology features such as a reconfigurable digital gauge display. The 911 comes with a front trunk which holds two carry-on suitcases and the rear-seat backs fold forward to create a large flat cargo area in the coupe model; in our testing, we were able to fit six carry-on cases behind the front seats.
Porsche provides all Turbo variants with posh interior materials and countless personalization options. While the rear seats can hold two extra passengers, the space is more suited to briefcases and soft luggage. However, folding the back seats down unlocks up to nine cubic feet on the coupe and six cubes on the cabriolet. The Turbo’s infotainment system offers a standard mobile hotspot and Apple CarPlay capability—Android Auto is not available. A Bose audio system is standard and a high-end Burmester unit is also available. While driver-assistance technology such as adaptive cruise control and blind-spot monitoring are offered, there are few other high-tech options. We recommend the front-axle-lift system that raises the front of the vehicle by about 1.5 inches to avoid scraping its valuable chin.
In addition to digital gauges in front of the driver, the Porsche 911 Carrera Turbo S Rent in Dubai come standard with the same large touchscreen infotainment system as lesser 911s, complete with Porsche’s intuitive software interface. A premium audio system from Bose is standard, and a Burmester stereo is optional, too, along with a Wi-Fi hotspot, SiriusXM satellite radio, and Apple CarPlay capability; Android Auto has so far been omitted from the features list for all of Porsche’s models.
The Porsche 911 Carrera Turbo S Rent in Dubai can be ordered with several high-tech driver-assistance features including adaptive cruise control and night vision.
