We have showed you photos of the new Porsche 911 Turbo before during all kinds of tests, but here are the latest photos taken today by photographers from Carpix.
With its air intakes in the wide fenders its easy to spot that this is the king of 911s. And while the first prototypes didnt have that big rear wing, this one has what we where hoping and expecting for.
One of the 911s we most look forward to seeing and driving is the Turbo, a truly futuristic car named for and defined by its means of forced induction.
It seems that the next 911 Turbo will be bigger and its exceptional handling shouldn’t be compromised, as Porsche will offset the growth with increased use of lightweight materials. It will, of course, remain all-wheel-drive. There will be no major change in the engine room, either, as we expect the 991 to reuse the turbocharged flat-six from the 997—Porsche’s model- and engine-development cycles aren’t exactly in sync.
The current version of this motor 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 reasonable—well, in a sense; that output is actually quite insane—for the 991 Turbo.
Turbo S goes from 0 to 60 mph in just 2.7 seconds and rips the quarter-mile in 10.8 at 129 mph. That trails a Bugatti Veyron to 60 by just 0.2 second, falling behind in the quarter by 0.7. Now imagine the next Turbo’s top speed will inch 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.
Below, in the photo gallery you can see the most recent spy pics with this new model.
