Power for the model will be provided by a tri-turbocharged flat-six engine with roughly 550 PS (405 kW / 542 hp) in reserve which is a 20 PS bump on the previous model.

The seventh generation Porsche 911 series is due to be blessed with the Turbo models during 2012. The first to come along will be the coupe body style and it will be followed by the open-top cabriolet, although we may have to wait until 2013 to find it in the Porsche showrooms. That wait has been made slightly easier by resident renderer Wildspeed who has provided a few depictions of what the 911 (991) Turbo Cabriolet may look like.

Power for the model will be provided by a tri-turbocharged flat-six engine with roughly 550 PS (405 kW / 542 hp) in reserve which is a 20 PS bump on the previous model. It will be mated with the standard seven-speed manual or optional seven-speed PDK dual-clutch transmission.

Our best guestimates based on initial rumored specifications suggest the 911 Turbo will thrust from 0-100kph in 3.5 seconds and will have a speed that peaks at around 200mph.

The location of the official unveiling is still unknown. It was first rumored to be heading for Frankfurt Motor Show last year, then Geneva this year was mentioned, but we are still waiting. Upcoming candidates are the New York Auto Show which begins next month, however Porsche may favor a European debut so the Paris Show in September is in pole position.
