2018 Porsche 911 Turbo S Exclusive Series Will Have 607 Horsepower

Porsche makes great cars, but one thing that’s really been lacking in its lineup? Enough variations of the 911. Obviously, we’re kidding — the iconic sports car is currently available in approximately six million different versions. But even in that crowded field, the 911 Turbo S Exclusive Series is sure to stand out. For the Exclusive Series, Porsche has upped the output of the 3.8-liter twin-turbocharged flat-6 some 27 ponies, meaning lucky buyers will have a fire-breathing 607 horsepower on tap. Torque remains the same as the standard Turbo S at…
