The New 911 Turbo

The New 911 Turbo

Efficiency demands performance.

Make a lot out of very little. Optimize the relationship between cost and benefit. In short: Efficiency demands performance. That was the principle of the first 911 Turbo in 1974 and it remains true today. The 911 Turbo principle is even more powerful, efficient and desirable than ever before.

After all the waiting, Porsche has finally taken the wraps off of the 2010 Porsche 911 Turbo, which will make its debut at the 2009 Frankfurt Motor Show next month in Coupe and Cabriolet form.

So – let’s get right down to the details you’re waiting to hear. Power comes from a 3.8L flat-six boxer engine, which has direct-fuel injection technology, a new expansion intake manifold and Porsche’s turbocharger with variable turbine geometry. All that allows for 500-hp, 20 more horsepower than the outgoing model. Maximum torque is increased by 15 for a total of 516 lb-ft, when equipped with the optional Sport Chrono Package Turbo.

When combined with Porsche new PDK 7-speed dual-clutch transmission, the 2010 911 Turbo goes from 0 to 60 mph in just 3.2 seconds and keeps going to a top speed of 194 mph. Even with all that performance, the 2010 911 Turbo reduces CO2 emissions by almost 18 percent while improving the mpgs (official mpg figures will be released by the EPA at a later date).

Sales of the 2010 911 Turbo Coupe and Cabriolet will begin in January 2010 with prices starting at $132,800 and $143,800 respectively.

Press Release:

Porsche continues to create more from less; greater driving dynamics, lower fuel consumption

ATLANTA – August 7, 2009 – Porsche has traditionally put great emphasis on the efficiency of its cars, but the new flagship 911 will give a whole new meaning to its high performance label: while its acceleration, braking and handling capabilities make it a true super sports car, it will go about its business with a thriftiness that is equally remarkable and by no means the norm in its class.

Combining technological innovations with clear-cut refinement for an even greater dynamic driving experience, Porsche AG will present its new flagship, the new 2010 Porsche 911 Turbo at the Frankfurt Motor Show September 17-27, 2009 in both Coupe and Cabriolet form.

The new Turbo features the first entirely new engine in its storied 35-year-history. The new flat-six boxer engine now displaces 3.8 liters and delivers 500 bhp, an increase of .2 liters and 20 bhp from the previous model. Direct Fuel Injection (DFI), a new expansion intake manifold first seen on the GT2 and Porsche’s exclusive turbocharger system with variable turbine geometry (VTG) lead the innovations. Maximum torque is up by 15, to 516 lb. ft. when equipped with the optional Sport Chrono Package Turbo.

The Sport Chrono Package Turbo allows the 2010 911 Turbo to accelerate from 0-60 mph in 3.2 seconds when combined with the new, highly acclaimed Porsche-Doppelkupplung, or PDK seven-speed transmission. Also included in the Sport Chrono Package Turbo is Porsche’s innovative dynamic engine mounts. Introduced earlier this year on the 2010 GT3, the new mounts utilize magnetic fluid that automatically adjusts for comfort or sport, depending on the driving conditions. Top track speed is 194 mph for both the Coupe and the Cabriolet models.

This combination of technology and evolution ensures an unprecedented standard of efficiency and performance.

The new 911 Turbo reduces CO2 emissions by almost 18 per cent compared to its predecessor while using significantly less fuel. Official EPA fuel economy figures are not yet available.

A new, optional three-spoke steering wheel with gearshift paddles as an alternative to the standard steering wheel with its proven shift buttons is also available for PDK equipped Turbos. Mounted directly on the steering wheel, the right paddle is for shifting up, the left paddle for shifting down.

Porsche Torque Vectoring (PTV) can now enhance the standard Porsche Traction Management (PTM) all-wheel drive and Porsche Stability Management (PSM). This new optional system includes a mechanical limited slip differential and actively distributes power between the rear wheels, making the car even more agile and precise in corners for an even higher level of driving pleasure.

The 2010 Turbo Coupe and Turbo Cabriolet go on sale January 2010. U.S. pricing is $132,800 and $143,800 respectively.
