Stuttgart, Germany  Porsche plan to showcase their new top of the range 911 Turbo at this years  Frankfurt Motor Show from 17 - 27 September.

The 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.

For 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).

Customers 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.

Depending 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).

Porsche 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.
