Porsche 911 Turbo

  • 2017 Porsche 911 Turbo

    Porsche has slowly been introducing updated versions of its 911 family, with most of the cars now featuring turbocharged engines—previously a bragging right of the actual ‘Turbo’ models only. However, to ensure that the 911 Turbo models still reign supreme, they’ve been given a power boost that sees them encroach on supercar territory. For the 2017 model year, both the 911 Turbo and 911 Turbo S stick with twin-turbocharged 3.8-liter flat-six engines but now output registers at 540 horsepower and 580 hp respectively. That represents a 20-hp bump in power for each...

    Meet The First Porsche 911 Turbo: Video

    It was at the 1973 Frankfurt Auto Show that Porsche first showed a prototype of a turbocharged 911 that would go on to spawn the original 911 Turbo just one year later. However, what many may not know is that 1974 wasn’t the first year for 911 Turbo production because an example had already...

  • Lamborghini Gallardo Super Trofeo Stradale takes on Porsche 911 Turbo at the drag strip

    The Lamborghini Gallardo will soon be replaced by the new Huracán, but that doesn't mean it's obsolete just yet--in fact, it appears to have something to offer against even the 991 Porsche 911 Turbo, at least when it's in Super Trofeo Stradale form. MUST WATCH: LaFerrari Duels With Ferrari Enzo On Precarious Mountain Roads: Video While the race is hair-splittingly close, and may have more to do with the drivers than either car as to the final outcome, it's clear that one of the hottest road-going Gallardos still has plenty of fight left in it. To back up the straight-strip results, the...

    Porsche's Next 911 Turbo To Get Four-Wheel-Steering: Report

    If Germany’s Autobild is correct, the new Porsche 911 Turbo will make its auto show debut in the fall of 2013, hitting the market (likely in Europe first) in the spring of 2014. As expected, it will benefit from all-wheel-drive and more horsepower (530 hp, versus 500 hp), but it will also add...

    British journo and avid racer Chris Harris takes a more serious look at two of the fastest road cars money can buy: the Nissan GT-R and Porsche 911 Turbo. However, we’re not talking about run-of-the-mill models here but rather the more extreme versions of both cars. In the case of the GT-R...

  • Corvette Z06 beats Porsche 911 Turbo around a track

    We’ve always known that Chevrolet’s Corvette Z06 was good, but we'd never have imagined that it could beat Porsche’s AWD 911 Turbo around a race track and with a lead of 2.6 seconds to boot. The test was carried out by Swedish magazine Auto Motor and Sport, who pitted the two cars against each other at Mantorp Park in Sweden, near Saab’s aircraft factory in Linkoping. Comments from test driver and STCC champion Richard Ekblom included gems like “the Porsche felt feminine in comparison with the Z06” and that “it pisses on the Porsche.” Further...
