Porsche 911 Turbo
The 2017 Porsche 911 Turbo and Turbo S — the top performance models of the 911— made their world debut at the 2016 North American International Auto Show in both coupe and cabriolet versions. Even though the 911 Carrera and Carrera 4 now have turbocharged engines as well, the 911 Turbo and 911 Turbo S continue as the most powerful versions. The 2017 911 Turbo gets motivation from a 540-horsepower twin-turbocharged 3.8-liter horizontally-opposed 6-cylinder engine combined with a 7-speed PDK transmission, while the Turbo S now has 580 horsepower thanks to new turbochargers. According to Porsche, the 911 Turbo will accelerate from zero to 60 mph in 2.9 seconds and reach a top track speed of 198 mph, and the 911 Turbo S will accelerate from zero to 60 mph in 2.9 seconds reach 205 mph on the track. The 2017 911 Turbo goes on sale in the U.S. in April of 2016 at a starting price of $159,200 — not including destination charge.
