Porsche celebrates its 50th anniversary and also the 40th anniversary of the flagship 911. The all-new model comes in the world with several new features, containing a latest all-wheel drive system, the active rear axle steering, the adaptive aerodynamics, the full-LED headlights and also a bi-turbo flat-six engine.
The 2014 Porsche 911 Turbo is some 44 mm wider than the regular Carrera and the same will be true for the new 991, as confirmed with the launch of the Carrera 4 models, which also sport a wider track. 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.
The car have these figures thanks to the latest all-wheel drive along with electro-hydraulic control, fitted with a latest water-cooling function. The PDCC active anti-roll system, which is being presented for the first time in the 911 Turbo models, also helps it to increase the dynamic performance. Porsche says that along with the standard production tires.
An advanced tri-turbo setup has been reported as a possibility, But that’s not all as an uprated ‘PDK-S’ dual-clutch gearbox. A conventional manual should still be offered but with the same seven-forward gear setup for the Carrera models.
