New Porsche 911 Turbo unveiled
After updating its range of 911 Carrera models, Porsche has shown off the similarly revised versions of the flagship 911 models
Both cars will be available in coupe and cabriolet body styles, and thanks to revisions to the twin-turbocharged 3.8-litre engine, they are both more powerful and more efficient than the previous models.
The Turbo now has 533bhp, while the Turbo S has 572, and that translates into a 0-62mph time of 2.9 and 3.0 seconds in coupe versions of the Turbo S and Turbo, respectively. At the same time, Porsche has also improved both the maximum speeds and fuel economy of both cars: the Turbo S, for example, tops out at 205mph and averages 31.0mpg.
Visually, the new cars adopt many of the styling features from the latest Carrera models, such as the reshaped nose, revised door handles and new rear lights. Both the Turbo and Turbo S models ride on 20-inch wheels, while they also have the new Porsche Communication Management system, which incorporates a touch-screen sat-nav system as well as allowing easier smartphone integration than in the previous car.
The cars are on sale now, with prices running from £126,925 for a 911 Turbo to £154,614 for a Turbo S cabriolet.
