The new Porsche 911 Turbo is here. It's 6-cylinder, 3.8 liter engine doling out 500 hp (368 kW) and 650 Nm of torque.
For the first time, this Porsche engine has been coupled to the PDK, Porsche's double-clutch gearbox. The engine also features direct injection and a turbocharger with variable turbine geometry to squeeze all those horses out of that 3.8 liter displacement.
The accompanying video provides an introduction of the new Porsche 911 Turbo by Wolfgang Durheimer, vice president for research and development at Porsche AG.
Naturally, there are the new LED daylight driving lights and LED turn indicators. But what's really impressive is the new Porsche Torque Vectoring (PTV) system that shifts torque to either the right or left rear wheel in response to any understeer while turning, keeping the car moving at optimal efficiency in the direction towards which the driver has pointed it with the steering wheel.
The numbers: 0 to 100 km/h in 3.4 seconds and 0 to 200 km/h in 11.6 seconds. Top speed is 312 km/h or 194 mph.
Fuel economy is also an impressive 11.6 liters/100 km, considering the amount of power on hand here.
The new Porsche 911 Turbo goes on sale in Germany on November 21 in both coupe and cabriolet variants. Prices, including VAT, are €145,871 for the coupe and €157,057 for the cabriolet model.
