Porsche 911 Turbo

Porsche 911 Turbo
The next generation of Porsche 911 is scheduled to grace us with its presence at the Frankfurt Motor Show this September in its Carrera and Carrera Cabrio body styles. We've seen plenty of spy shots illustrating the details on each of these variants, but new spy shots have uncovered the higher performance version - the 911 Turbo - which should be making its world debut in this year 2012.One of the 911s we most look forward to seeing and driving is the Turbo, a car named for and defined by its means of forced induction. When the first Turbo launched in Europe in 1974, its performance represented an almost unbelievable leap forward from naturally aspirated 911 models. It required extraordinary skill to drive at the limit, and it wasn't until the 993 Turbo, the first one with all-wheel drive, that the car became somewhat civilized.Able to keep up with some of the best super car models around; its combination of turbocharged power and all-wheel drive traction ensures that it’s almost always the first out of the blocks when the lights turn green.
                                                                  The large air intakes situated on the flanks of the 911 Turbo will rush cool air into the 3.8-liter flat-six engine pumping out about 550 HP. This engine will be combined with Porsche’s newest technologies, including brake regeneration and stop start systems which will help reduce fuel consumption by about 12%. The engine will be offered with an improved manual gearbox as standard, or an optional Porsche-Doppelganger (PDK) gearbox. The PDK will have with no less than seven forward gears, combining the driving comfort of a converter automatic transmission with the dynamic gearshift of a sequential racing gearbox.As usual, the next 911 line will spawn spin-offs like few other cars on the road. Besides the various drive train configurations—base or up level naturally aspirated engine, rear- or four-wheel drive—and Turbo and GT3 versions, Porsche will offer a hybrid and might even add a turbocharged four-cylinder engine to the portfolio. That is a mere possibility at this point and, of course, is not the car seen here; Porsche would have to be careful that a force-fed four didn't dilute the "Turbo" moniker.
                                                        In the current 997 generation, the 911 Turbo is some 44 mm wider than the regular Carrera and we can expect something similar for the new 991. Peak output should also be slightly higher than the 530 horsepower of the most recent 911 Turbo S, so expect a figure of around 550 horsepower to bring its output in-line with that of its Japanese nemesis, the Nissan GT-R.
                                                         An advanced tri-turbo setup has been reported as a possibility, with the addition of the third turbocharger aimed at improving low-end response for blistering off the line performance.
