The new Porsche 911 Turbo - The engine

For 45 years, it has been the epitome of the high-performance sports car suitable for everyday use: the Porsche 911 Turbo. Following the market launch of the 911 Turbo S, the 911 Turbo Coupé and Cabriolet are now also entering the next generation - even more powerful, even faster and even more individual. Thanks to 427 kW (580 hp), an increase of 30 kW (40 hp) over the predecessor, both model variants undercut the magic limit of 2.8 seconds (minus 0.2 s) for the zero to 100 km/h sprint. 750 Newton meters (plus 40 Nm) of torque, now without a timed overboost limit, make intermediate spurts even more spontaneous and effortless. This puts the acceleration, power and torque of the new 911 Turbo on a par with the 911 Turbo S of the previous generation. Power transmission is again handled by the Turbo-specific eight-speed PDK gearbox. The top speed remains unchanged at 320 km/h. For the first time, options such as a sports or lightweight package, sports suspension and sports exhaust system are also available for the 911 Turbo. This allows customers to tailor their vehicle even more closely to their individual wishes.
