After 5-year wait, Porsche has officially revealed the new 2011 Porsche 911 Turbo S, the latest to carry the Turbo S moniker for the German auto giant.  Designed for the customer that seeks only the best in terms of power, performance and driving dynamics, the new 911 Turbo S delivers 530 hp and 516 pound-feet of torque–surpassing the numbers of even the GT2–and comes exclusively with the seven-speed PDK dual clutch transmission.

Combined with the launch control system from the standard Sport Chrono Package, the new 911 Turbo S accelerates from zero to 62 mph in 3.3 seconds and reaches 124 mph in 10.8 seconds. Top speed is 195 mph.

Despite its significant increase in power and dynamic performance, the 911 Turbo S, at 26.8 mpg combined, doesn’t consume any more fuel than the regular Porsche 911 Turbo, making it one of the most efficient sports cars in its class. Standard features include carbon ceramic brakes, 19 inch wheels in the RS Spyder design, a three-spoke sports steering wheel with gearshift paddles, adaptive sports seats, cruise control, a CD/DVD changer and exclusive twin-tone leather upholstery.

The new 2011 Porsche 911 Turbo S will be making its world debut next month at the 2010 Geneva Motor Show before going on sale in Europe this May. The coupe will be priced at roughly $236,000, while a cabriolet model will sell for $250,000. The new 911 Turbo S will be arrived in the U.S. later in the year. Expect more details to be revealed following the car’s debut at next month’s Geneva event. [via MotorAuthority]
