The latest 8th generation 911 came to market earlier this year but Porsche is working on the 911 Turbo which has appeared online in prototype form.
We drove the latest 911 earlier this year and came away suitably impressed with its overall performance. We are, however, looking forward to sampling forthcoming 911 derivatives such as the 911 Turbo and Turbo S, which are currently in development.
The images show 911 Turbo prototypes being driven in France by German racing driver and Porsche factory driver, Jörg Bergmeister.
Official details for the 911 Turbo have yet to be announced but reports point to no less than 447 kW being produced by a 3.8-litre flat-6 engine, which should make for an entertaining drive. An 8-speed dual-clutch transmission will lay the power down and performance ballpark figures are estimated at 2.5 seconds in the sprint from zero to 100 kph with a top speed in the region of 329 kph. All-wheel drive will be standard and rear-wheel steering and Porsche’s Active Suspension Management is also expected to make an appearance in the 911 Turbo.
The 911 Turbo is expected to be revealed sometime in the first half of 2020 and we will certainly keep you updated as soon as more information becomes available.
