You are looking at the next generation of Porsche 911 Turbo, expected to be officially unveiled at the Frankfurt Auto Show in September.
The 3.8 litre twin-turbocharged boxer six engine will spawn two models, the 911 Turbo with 520 bhp (exactly twice the amount that was had in the original Porsche 911 Turbo 40 years ago) and the 911 Turbo S with 560 bhp.
This forced-induction engine will be mated with the companies seven-speed dual-clutch transmission and all-wheel drive system which is reportedly good for a 0-60 time of 3.1 seconds for the ‘standard’ Turbo and 2.9 for the Turbo S, whilst both models will max-out at around 198 mph.
Fuel consumption has been reduced by 16 percent with the help of enhanced, aerodynamically-adaptive bodywork and a stop/start engine management system.
Going the distance and choosing the Turbo S to fill that Porsche-shaped whole in your life gets you the optional Sports Chrono package, active suspension and high-spec carbon ceramic brakes for roughly an extra $30,000 over the standard Turbo, which will retail for around $150,000 when it hits European and American showrooms towards the end of 2013.
