Recent Changes

  • The 2010 Geneva Motor Show plays host to the unveiling of a new range-topping 911 dubbed Turbo S. The new alpha dog 911 takes the volume up to 11 by churning our 530 hp and 700Nm (516 lb-ft) of torque via the help of two exhaust gas turbochargers with variable turbine geometry. The engine is attached exclusively to Porsche's 7-speed double-clutch PDK gearbox sending the power to all four wheels. Prices in Germany begin at €173,241 for the Coupe and €184,546 for the Cabrio. [1]
  • 2010 sees an extensive refresh for the 911 Turbo. Outside, it's still the same 997 body (albeit with new headlamps) but the big story is what's underneath. First, the 3.6 litre Flat-Six is given the boot in favor of the new 3.8 litre directed injected unit from the Carrera S fitted with two variable-vane turbos and producing 500 hp. Attached to the 6-speed Manual, the powertrain returns 24.1 mpg, attached to Porsche's 7-speed Doppelkupplungsgetriebe (dual-clutch) gearbox, however, and you get 24.8 mpg. Second, the paddle shifters have also been replaced with dual-action units to F1-style ones. Third, the new Turbo carries around less weight and more RWD bias. Finally, Porsche has fettled with its Porsche Traction Management system that distributes torque between the front and rear differentials via an electric multi-plate clutch. The same goes for the PSM (Porsche Stability Management), re-calibrated to be more lively and New RS Spyder rims are also available to decrease unsprung weight. Prices start at $132,800 for the Coupe and $143,800 for the Cabrio. [2]
