Porsche announces the arrival of their latest iteration of the 911 Turbo.

As confusing as it may seem since today’s entry level 911 already sports a 3.0L turbo motor, the new 911 Turbo is the officially labeled Turbo model in the 911 lineup that will boast a 3.8L flat six motor which produces 540hp (Turbo) and 580hp (Turbo S). With these performance numbers, the Turbo and Turbo S will sprint to 100km/h in 3.0 seconds and 2.9 seconds, and topping out at 320kph and 330kph respectively. The Turbo motor is treated to revised intake ports, and utilizes new fuel injectors working under high fuel pressure demands. The Turbo S motor receives a revised set of turbochargers featuring larger compressors.

The new Turbo lineup will feature exterior enhancements to the front facia which gives the 911 a much wider and aggressive look. A revised engine cover helps channel more air into the intake system. Porsche will continue to offer the Turbo and Turbo S in both coupe and convertible varieties.

We should see these new Porsches on sale across Canada around April 2016.
