Also included in the standard package is the Launch Control and Sport Chrono Package that helps the Turbo S see of the century sprint in just 3.3-seconds, shaving up to a tenth of a second from the regular 911 Turbo’s time with PDK.

The new 911 Turbo S will be offered in both cabriolet and coupe form and will be in dealerships by the third quarter of this year.
