Recent Changes

  • The 2010 Geneva Motor Show plays host to the unveiling of a new range-topping 911 dubbed Turbo S. The new alpha dog 911 takes the volume up to 11 by churning our 530 hp and 700Nm (516 lb-ft) of torque via the help of two exhaust gas turbochargers with variable turbine geometry. The engine is attached exclusively to Porsche's 7-speed double-clutch PDK gearbox sending the power to all four wheels. Prices in Germany begin at €173,241 for the Coupe and €184,546 for the Cabrio. [1]
  • 2010 sees an extensive refresh for the 911 Turbo. Outside, it's still the same 997 body (albeit with new headlamps) but the big story is what's underneath. First, the 3.6 litre Flat-Six is given the boot in favor of the new 3.8 litre directed injected unit from the Carrera S fitted with two variable-vane turbos and producing 500 hp. Attached to the 6-speed Manual, the powertrain returns 24.1 mpg, attached to Porsche's 7-speed Doppelkupplungsgetriebe (dual-clutch) gearbox, however, and you get 24.8 mpg. Second, the paddle shifters have also been replaced with dual-action units to F1-style ones. Third, the new Turbo carries around less weight and more RWD bias. Finally, Porsche has fettled with its Porsche Traction Management system that distributes torque between the front and rear differentials via an electric multi-plate clutch. The same goes for the PSM (Porsche Stability Management), re-calibrated to be more lively and New RS Spyder rims are also available to decrease unsprung weight. Prices start at $132,800 for the Coupe and $143,800 for the Cabrio. [2]

Current Generation: (2013–present)

the 991 turbo comes with twin-turbo 3.8L engine. The facelifted 991 turbo has a possible top speed of 199 mph while the facelifted turbo s has a possible top speed of 205 mph.

997 generation (2006–2012)

The 997 turbo was introduced at the 2006 Geneva Motor Show. The facelifted 997 turbo was introduced for 2010 and ended production in 2012.

996 generation (2000–2004)

The 996 Turbo debuted at the Frankfurt Auto Show in September 1999. It went on sale in the US in summer of 2000 as a 2001 model. The turbo was powered by a water-cooled twin turbocharged/intercooled 3.6L H-6 engine. During the final year of the 996 turbo porsche included the turbo s as a coupé or convertible.

993 generation (1995–1998)

The 993 Turbo coupe was released in 1995. It featured a new turbochargedengine displacing 3.6 liters and producing 408 PS (300 kW; 402 hp). Twinturbochargers and air-to-air intercoolers, electronic engine management, redesigned cylinder heads and other modified engine internals were used. The 993 Turbo was the first Porsche Turbo with all wheel drive. The electronic engine management helped the Turbo to achieve fuel efficiency far superior to any of the previous production Turbos. In connection with twocatalytic converters and an on-board-diagnostics-system including four oxygen-sensors, it also made the 993 Turbo the cleanest sports car at its time. The Turbo's bodywork differs from the Carrera body by widened rear wheel arches (approximately 6 cm), redesigned front and rear bumper moldings, and a fixed rear wing housing the intercoolers. New 18-inch (460 mm) alloy wheels with weight-reducing hollow spokes were standard.

This was one of the first production cars in the world to have OBDII diagnostics (the 3.8-liter and track versions didn't have it, and the normally aspirated 993s didn't get it until 1996). All turbos since have had water-cooled heads. The car also had brakes that were larger than those on the base Carrera model.

During the second to the last year of production of the 993 (1997), Porsche offered the 993 Turbo S. Ultimately 183 cars were sold. The Turbo S is a high-spec Turbo including a power upgrade to 450 hp (DIN) (424 hp (SAE) for theAmerican market). The inclusion of extras including carbonfibre decoration in the interior makes it different from the earlier lightweight, spartan 964 Turbo S. The 993 Turbo S is recognized by yellow brake calipers, a slightly larger rear wing, a 4-pipe exhaust and air scoops behind the doors. This was the last of the air-cooled Turbos. 12 Turbo S cars were delivered to Australia.

964 generation (1990–1994)

The 964 turbo was introduced in 1990 as the replacement for the 930. In 1992 the turbo s model was introduced. Porsche also released the 964 turbo 3.6 in January 1993. At the end of the 964 turbos production there was about 90 turbo chasis left.

First Generation/Origins (1975–1989)

The first generation 911 turbo was introduced in 1975. A total of 21,589 first generation turbos were made.
