The photos of the new sports car are shared on Instagram by Bhushan Bhosale. We can see that the Turbo S is finished in black colour. It gets grey alloy wheels. Sachin chose this paint scheme probably because he wanted the 911 to look understated.

Sachin Tendulkar is also the brand ambassador of BMW India. He recently put his BMW 530d M Sport on sale. Sachin has also owned other expensive sports cars such as Nissan GT-R, BMW i8, BMW X5M, BMW 7-Series Li and Ferrari 360 Modena. Sachin also posted a picture of him with his Maruti 800 on social media saying that he misses his first vehicle and wants it back.

The prices of the Turbo S variant starts at Rs. 3.08 Crores ex-showroom. It is the most expensive version of 911 offered in India. In the international market, there are two additional variants known as 911 GT3 and 911 GT3 Touring which sit on top of the line.

At first, the Turbo S looks like a regular 911 but look closely and you would be able to spot the differences. It is much more powerful and more aggressive than the regular 911. The Turbo S is powered by a twin-turbocharged 6-cylinder petrol engine that has a capacity of 3.8-litres. It puts out 650 PS of max power and a massive 800 Nm of peak torque. The engine comes mated to an 8-speed PDK automatic transmission that drives all four wheels. Porsche’s PDK transmissions are one of the best in the automobile industry when it comes to shifting and response times. It has a top speed of 330 kmph and can hit 100 kmph in just 2.6 seconds. When compared the regular 911 produces 385 PS of max power and 450 Nm of peak torque from its 6-cylinder engine.

Porsche increased the rear width of the 911 by 20 mm and the front was widened by 45 mm. The rear wing has also been redesigned and adds downforce to the vehicle. The front iconic circular headlamps have also been redesigned. It comes with LED headlamps with four LED Daytime Running Lamps. At the rear, Porsche has an LED light bar. You can different types of alloy wheels with the 911. The front-wheel measures 20-inch in size while the rear one measures 21-inches. The wheels also get hub lock wheels which we usually see on race cars.

Porsche has also given four-wheel steering to the 911 which means that the rear wheels of the 911 turn in the same directions as the front ones when the vehicle is going at high speeds. This effectively increases the wheelbase and aids in high-speed stability. At lower speeds, the rear wheels turn in the opposite direction which reduces the turning signal and helps in making tight turns.
