This one is the first product from Porsche Exclusive Manufaktur division, which comes out as nothing but a renamed version of customization and development unit Porsche Exclusive. The new 911 Turbo S Exclusive stands as the most expensive, powerful and luxurious product from the carmaker.

Porsche-911-Turbo-S-Exclusive-Series-1

Every single unit will carry a base price of $2,57,500 (approx INR 1.66 Crore) while adding more thing will definitely take the price up by a considerable margin. This makes it $66,700 (approx INR 43 lakh) more expensive than the current top spec 911 Turbo S.

The Indian market brings Porsche cars as CBUs and thus, the difference in the price of both cars in US will be doubled. Turbo S is currently priced in India at INR 2.68 Crore.

Porsche-911-Turbo-S-Exclusive-Series-2

This makes Porsche 911 Turbo S Exclusive good for an approximate price tag of INR 3.61 Crore. The super high price tag will bring the same 3.9 liter, twin turbocharged engine producing 607 PS and 750 Nm of torque. The values are 27 PS and 50 Nm more than the Turbo S.

This makes the limited edition Porsche good for 0-100 kmph in 2.9 seconds and 330 kmph of top speed. It even comes with Prosche rear wheel steering as standard. The engine is mated to a 7-Speed dual-clutch transmission.

Porsche-911-Turbo-S-Exclusive-Series-3

The interior of the Porsche 911 Turbo S Exclusive carries double layer of leather all around the seats. The exterior theme is followed into the interior as you can spot stripes and contrast stitching at most parts.

Those buying the Porsche limited edition will get a matching watch that’s made out of the same carbon fiber that has been used in the car’s manufacturing. This then again limits the number of watches made out of the same to 500.
