At the Nurburgring seen a prototype of the new Porsche 911 TurboOctober 21, 2019
German brand engineers are testing a more powerful version of the current generation of the 911 sports coupe. The company may unveil the 911 Turbo / Turbo S at the Los Angeles Auto Show next month. Sales should begin in 2020.
The iconic German sports coupe Porsche 911 new generation (factory index 992) was presented almost a year ago at the Los Angeles Auto Show. I must say that according to tradition, the brand’s engineers did not make any serious changes to the appearance of one of their most popular models.
First, we were shown two representatives of the updated family – Carrera S and 4S. Now the youngest of them is shown – Carrera 4, and buyers can already purchase these cars in coupe or convertible bodies. Sooner or later, the Porsche will also feature the more powerful 911 Turbo, followed by the high-performance GT3 / GT3 RS and the flagship GT2 RS.
Looking pretty familiar, prototypes of the new 911 Turbo were spotted on the Nurburgring racetrack with very little camouflage. The round exhaust pipes help us identify this particular version of the machine, since the more powerful Turbo S has four pipes.
The side vents in the rear wheel arches along with the air vents in the corners of the rear bumper also indicate that we are dealing with a Turbo version. The third vertical brake light, built into the slots on the engine cover on less powerful models, will be replaced by a horizontal stripe on the wing in more productive versions.
Rumor has it that the upgraded 3.8-liter inline six will receive power up to 600 horsepower in a regular Turbo and up to 640 hp in Turbo S. Already as standard, the car will be equipped with an all-wheel drive system, four-wheel steering, as well as an eight-speed gearbox.
Not so long ago, our publication wrote that the Porsche 356 that had crashed became a unique speedster. The company Emory Motorsports again pleased with the compact roadster. The car received major changes both in design and in technical terms.
