The top model of the 968 series is the Turbo S, which also forms the basis for the 968 Turbo RS. Optically the Turbo S is distinguished by two additional air inlets in the engine bonnet, an additional spoiler lip on the nose section and a larger, adjustable rear wing. The body is lowered by 20 mm. The braking system originates from the Turbo S. — Porsche
