Porsche reveals new 911 Turbo
Porsche has unveiled its brand new 911 Turbo, following on from the launch of the range-topping Turbo S earlier in the year.
The new Turbo utilises a twin-turbocharged 3.8-litre flat-six engine with 527bhp, with power sent to all four wheels through an eight-speed automatic gearbox.
This power output allows the Turbo to slot neatly into the 911 range, dropping in between the less powerful Carrera 4S and the 641bhp Turbo S.
It’s no slouch, either, with 0-60mph dealt with in under three seconds. It’ll also hit a top speed of 199mph while returning between 22.6-23.5mpg and emitting between 271 and 285g/km CO2 depending on wheel size.
The standard Turbo uses many of the Turbo S’s styling traits, with large air intakes in the rear arches and a huge rear spoiler appearing on both cars. However, the less powerful model is differentiated from its more potent stablemate by square exhausts, rather than twin tailpipes on the Turbo S. Compared to the older Turbo, the new car has a front track which is 42mm wider, while the rear track is 10mm wider too.
The interior is similar to that found on the rest of the current crop of 911 models, with a 10.9-inch infotainment screen giving access to features such as satellite navigation and media functions. The Turbo also uses Porsche’s Advanced Cockpit, which places two screens inside the instrument binnacle.
Prices for the new 911 Turbo kick off at £134,000 for the Coupe, rising to £145,560 for the Cabriolet.
