New Porsche 911 Turbo gains Lightweight and Sport packages 

The 2020 Porsche 911 Turbo hasn’t been with us for long, but a raft of packages and optional extras are already in the pipeline

First deliveries of the new 992 911 Turbo are yet to commence, but Porsche has already devised performance-enhancing options for its (current) range-topping 911. Named the Sport and Lightweight packages, both offer unique additions to the model, and will be available to order by the end of the year.

Since its 1975 inception, the 911 Turbo has been a model best kept in its standard form, with enough straight-line performance to keep even the most power-hungry satisfied. Though power output remains the same for now, it seems Porsche is keen to extract even more performance through weight reduction, whilst also adding aggression with these new packages.

The Lightweight Package swaps standard glass for the lightweight kind, also adding lightweight bucket seats, reducing insulation and removing the rear seats for a 30kg reduction in weight. Also included is Porsche Active Suspension Management (PASM), improving handling and dropping ride height by 10mm. The sports exhaust system also comes as standard, increasing sound and adding black exhaust tips.

If aesthetics are high on the agenda, the Sport Package by Exclusive Manufaktur is for you. A new front splitter improves front-end aggression, whilst buyers receive a unique tail light and wing design at the rear. New gloss black details can also be found throughout, as well as a lightweight carbonfibre roof (on the coupe) and a staggered set of Dark Silver 20- and 21-inch Turbo S wheels.

Power from the range-topping Turbo S remains at a very healthy 641bhp and 590lb ft of torque, coming from its 3.8-litre twin-turbocharged flat-six. Zero to 62mph comes in a quoted 2.7sec (though this is usually conservative), with top speed at a 991-matching 205mph. Prices start at £155,970 for the coupe, jumping to £165,127 for the Cabriolet.

Pricing and availability is yet to be confirmed, but based on previous timelines, both should be available to order before the end of the year.
