The horsepower wars are on for 2021, with the powerful Mercedes-AMG GT R putting out an incredible 577 hp and the Audi R8 coming in at 602 hp. The Lamborghini Huracan Evo outputs 631 hp but still doesn’t compare to the outrageous 640 hp of the Porsche 911 Turbo S.

These luxury sports cars offer not only tremendous power but unsurpassed quality and performance upgrades.

All models of the 2021 Porsche 911 Turbo S offer carbon-fiber interior trim, a Bose surround-sound stereo system, a 10.9-inch touchscreen infotainment system, and 18-way powered adjustable sport seats for added comfort.

An eight-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission is standard in the AWD 911 Turbo S. There are plenty of standard safety features and a high-tech driver-assistance system.

Although rated for four people, the car is much better suited for two adults because of the limited room in the back seat. The front trunk has space for two average-sized suitcases. The rear-seat backs can be folded down to create a flat holding area that provides increased cargo-carrying capacity. 

The Porsche 911 Turbo S costs as much as you would expect

It’s no surprise that power like this comes with a hefty price tag. 

The MSRP on the 2021 Porsche 911 Turbo S is $203,500. By Porsche standards, that’s actually not too bad compared to the 918 Spyder, which started at $845,000 but is now often more than $1 million because only 918 units were sold, per AutomobileMag.

The 2021 Turbo S cabriolet model has an MSRP of $216,300, while the convertible and coupe editions are expected to come in around $170,000.
