When having a simple 911 Type 991.2 Turbo S was not sufficient, Porsche’s top clients could saunter by their local dealership and order something a bit more impressive, such as the Turbo S Exclusive Series from Porsche Exclusive Manufaktur. Offered from 2017 to 2019, only 500 of these very special Porsches were constructed: 300 coupes and 200 Cabriolets. They were the among the most powerful, yet comfortable, automobiles ever offered by Porsche, and today they are highly sought after by knowledgeable collectors.
Both versions were powered by an uprated 3.8-liter water-cooled flat-six. Fitted with Porsche Exclusive’s special Powerkit, these engines delivered a massive 607 brake horsepower and 550 pound-feet of torque to both ends of the all-wheel-drive chassis with the aid of a pair of variable-vane turbochargers. The transmission was Porsche’s marvelous seven-speed PDK (double-clutch) system with limited-slip. The Turbo S boasted Dynamic Chassis Control and huge ventilated carbon-ceramic disc brakes within center-lock 20-inch wheels. These Turbo S Exclusive-series road rockets were quicker than a GT3 RS, touching 0-60 in under three seconds and maxing out 205 miles per hour.
Luxuriously equipped with full leather interiors with contrasting stitching, Turbo S embroidery and carbon-fiber highlights, these were finely trimmed machines. Air conditioning and climate control were standard. The bodywork also utilized carbon-fiber parts in their integrated multi-stage aerokits. Only a handful of colors were offered for this special series, and certainly the most attractive must be Golden Yellow Metallic (5G), first revealed at Rennsport Reunion VI. Combined with a full Black leather interior (60) with contrasting yellow stitching and carbon-fiber trim, along with a Black fabric folding cloth top with twin black stripes that match those on the front trunk lid, this Cabriolet makes a wonderful visual statement. Only a few options were available, and this example is fitted with a high-end Burmeister entertainment system, Porsche’s innovative front-axle lift system, and Porsche Entry and Drive system (KESSY). The as-delivered price was $278,450.
This rare Porsche Exclusive Series Cabriolet was delivered to its first and only Bay area owner, a Porsche Prestige client, in early 2019 and had has accrued fewer than 2,400 miles from new.
