The advent of turbo Porsche was a matter of time. The Porsche 911 Carrera and Carrera S already employ 3.0 boxer engine six-cylinder, twin-charged, achieving the highest performance and lower consumption in its history. This sudden overeating makes us wonder about the rest of the range, which will gradually be updated until the moment possibly renounce atmospheric. But this leaves us with doubts about the current Porsche 911 Turbo , on the throne of the 911 range
When Porsche Turbo write in capital letters, still mean it.
The good news is that the Porsche 911 Turbo will continue to occupy his post of honor, and will be the only bearing the emblem Turbo in your body – while others employ 911 supercharged engines. He doubted if the Porsche 911 Turbo would now use an enhanced version of the three-liter engine of the new 911 Carrera, called internally 9A2. The good news is that 911 Turbo will continue to use the current motor – called 9A1 -. But finished going through a process of renovation, a facelift
The current Porsche 911 Turbo engine is a twin-charged 3.8 in parallel by two turbochargers with variable geometry. In its most aggressive setting – the Porsche 911 Turbo S – the motor is able to develop beastly 560 hp and 750 Nm of torque , between 2,200 rpm and 4,000 rpm. Reading between the lines we can confirm that there is still potential to draw from this engine, and supposedly a version GT2 mark the finale of the current generation of the 911, within two or three years.
seems when Porsche Turbo write in capital letters, he means it . The fate of the current atmospheric – today’s GTS and GT3 – is more uncertain, at least for GTS . Porsche retain the GT3 as unique atmospheric range, even with very strong ties to the racing cars of the 911 Cup.
