2013 Porsche 911 Turbo unveiled
The new Porsche 911 Turbo has been revealed; it gets a twin-turbocharged engine, four-wheel drive and rear-wheel steering, and costs from £118,349.
Technical highlights of the new 911 Turbo include a new 3.8-litre flat-six petrol engine with two turbochargers that’s more powerful, yet more fuel-efficient, than its predecessor’s. In standard form it develops 514bhp, while the Turbo S version gets 552bhp.
Drive is via a seven-speed dual-clutch PDK transmission, and there’s a newly-developed four-wheel-drive system that features an electronically controlled and activated multi-plate clutch.
A start/stop system is standard. EU Combined fuel consumption for both models is 29.1mpg, an improvement of up to 16 per cent. Porsche quotes a 0-62mph time of 3.2 seconds for the 911 Turbo with optional Sport Chrono Package Plus, and 3.1 seconds for the Turbo S. Top speed is 197mph.
