Fuel economy

A more stringent standard for fuel economy (WLTP) was introduced from September 2017, and this model was not required to undergo that test. Its fuel economy measured under the previous test system was 28 - 31 mpg. However these figures are less likely to be achievable in real world driving and so should never be compared to another car's mpg which was measured under the newer, more realistic WLTP system.

Naturally Porsche 911 Turbo running costs aren’t super-low, but by the same token they’re not as astronomical as those of some other supercars.

Fuel economy for the updated 2016 engines is rated at 31mpg combined, and the figure is the same for both the Turbo and Turbo S. That’s an impressive figure given the performance though you’ll need to drive carefully to achieve it in day-to-day driving.

The Turbo doesn’t even sit in the most expensive VED tax band at current rates, with a CO2 output of 212g/km.

Judging by the previous-generation Turbo, reliability and overall running costs should be surprisingly reasonable compared with other supercars of this performance. Tyres, of course, won’t be cheap.

As mentioned above, Porsche 911 Turbo and Turbo S emissions are rated at 212g/km of CO2 which is pretty remarkable considering their power outputs.

All Turbos come with start/stop as standard and providing you’re not in Sport mode the PDK transmission features a coasting function, which decouples the transmission to save fuel if you lift from the throttle in steady-state driving. It’s a little bizarre sometimes to see the revs drop to idle while you’re travelling at dual carriageway speeds but otherwise the system is very slick and unobtrusive and according to Porsche can contribute to significant savings over time.

Porsche has a hard-won reputation for durability. There have been very few recalls affecting the Porsche 911 Turbo in the UK in the past. Latest-generation Porsche 911 Turbo reliability should prove as resilient as previous models, though it does feature more complex electronic systems than previously.
