Porsche's new range-topping 911 Turbo S has made its debut at the Geneva motor show.

What is it
The Turbo S will become the fastest and most powerful 911 in the range when it goes on sale in May.

Power from the 523bhp twin-turbocharged 3.8-litre engine is 30bhp up on the 911 Turbo, and blasts the S from 0-62mph in just 3.3 seconds. Its top speed is 196mph.

Despite the increased power and improved dynamics, efficient technology helps the 911 Turbo S do an average of 24.8mpg which is identical to the less powerful Turbo version.

The 911 Turbo S comes with the PDK twin-clutch seven-speed gearbox with steering wheel-mounted paddleshifts as standard. The car's dynamics have been improved by Porsche's sport chrono package, which adds launch control and dynamic engine mounts.

Other standard equipment on the range-topping Turbo S includes:
• dynamic cornering lights;
• 19-inch RS Spyder design alloys;
• adaptive sports seats;
• cruise control;
• two-tone leather upholstery.

How much and when?
The Porsche Turbo S goes on sale in May and prices start from 123,263 for the coupe, and from 130,791 in Cabriolet form.

Customers will also be able to experience the improved dynamics and power of their 911 Turbo S, while developing their own driving skills at the Porsche Experience Centre at Silverstone.
