– Porsche plan to showcase their new top of the range 911 Turbo at this years Frankfurt Motor Show from 17 - 27 September.
German car company have long been known for their innovative
technology, fine tuning, design and performance – attributes which have
never been more obvious than with its newest offering - the 911 Turbo.
Porsche have improved fuel efficiency and lowered the
vehicles overall weight, which contributes to the 911 Turbo's
increased power, higher speed, and enhanced driving dynamics.
the first time in its 35-year-history, the new Porsche 911 Turbo has
an entirely new 3.8 litre turbocharged petrol engine, delivering a
maximum output of 368 kW (500 bhp). The new engine features Direct Fuel
Injection and Porsche’s exclusive turbocharger with variable turbine
geometry. As an added option, the new six-cylinder can be mated to
Porsche’s seven-speed PDK (Double-Clutch Gearbox).
that opt for the PDK (Double-Clutch Gearbox) have the option of either
a three-spoke steering wheel with gearshift paddles or the standard
steering wheel with shift buttons. Fitted on either side of the
steering wheel, the right paddle is for shifting up, the left paddle
for shifting down. In conjunction with the optional Sport Chrono
Package Turbo, both the gearshift paddle and the PDK steering wheel, with
its shift buttons, come with integrated displays for Launch Control and
the Sport/Sport Plus mode.
By using PDK, Direct Fuel
Injection and turbocharging, Porsche have reduced CO2 emissions by
almost 18 per cent, compared to previous models.
on the mode you have the vehicle in, the 911 Turbo's fuel consumption is
just 11.4 literes/ 100 km, which is surprising – keeping in mind this is
a high performance sports car that is capable of accelerating from
0-100 km/h in 3.4 seconds, with a top speed of 312 km/h (194 mph).
have also improved the driving dynamics and cornering. Enhancements to
the PTM fully controlled all-wheel drive and PSM Porsche Stability
Management systems, are being further supported by new PTV Porsche Torque
Vectoring available as an option. This makes the car even more agile and
precise during cornering.
Porsche will begin sales of the new Porsche 911 Turbo in both Coupé and Cabriolet variants in Germany on 21 November 2009.
The 911 Turbo will retail in Germany for, €145,871 for the Coupé and €157,057 for the Cabriolet.
