Porsche 911 Turbo

CARBARN | 2013 Porsche 911 Turbo | The next 911, known to its fans by Porsche and the 991's internal designation, is ready to launch this fall at the Frankfurt auto show. When the first Turbo launched in Europe in 1974, its performance Represented an almost unbelievable leap forward from naturally aspirated 911 models. It required extraordinary skill to drive at the limit, and It was not until the 993 Turbo, the first one with all-wheel drive, that the car Became somewhat civilized.

Since then, the 911 Turbo has morphed into a super-fast long-distance cruiser, but its performance is still far beyond That of the Carrera and Carrera S. This Will Remain the case Pls launches the next Porsche Turbo, based on the 991 model generation, in the first half of 2012. While the next 911 Turbo Will be bigger, its exceptional handling should not be compromised, as Porsche Will offset the growth with Increased use of lightweight materials. It will, of course, Remain all-wheel-drive. Will there be no major change in the engine room, either, As We expect the 991 to reuse the turbocharged flat-six from the 997-model Porsche's engine-and-development cycles Are not exactly in sync.

A version of this engine already makes 530 hp in today's Turbo S, and Porsche managed 620 horses from the port-injected 3.6-liter in the GT2 RS, so something in the neighborhood of 550 hp seems a reasonable-well, in a sense; That Actually the output is quite insane, for the 991 Turbo. That Consider today's Turbo S goes from 0 to 60 mph in just 2.7 seconds and rips the quarter-mile in 10.8 at 129 mph The next Turbo's top speed will of inches from today's 194 mph Closer to the magic 200-mph mark. Nevertheless, its small-displacement-the direct-injected turbo six is currently just 3.8-liters Should help the turbo to Remain one of the most fuel-efficient supercars extant.

Besides the Various drivetrain configurations-base or uplevel naturally aspirated engine, rear-or four-wheel-drive versions and the Turbo and GT3, Porsche Will offer a hybrid and Might even add a turbocharged four-cylinder engines to the portfolio. Remember  Always respect the sequence.
