To reduce consumption, the cylinder capacity was significantly lowered compared to the previous generations. Because, as sports car manufacturers, we carry considerable responsibility. Even so, the engine’s performance increases significantly, provided by the turbocharger of the 911.
The 911 offers a twin-turbo drive and it has two chargers with charge-air cooling, one for each cylinder bench. Two especially compact turbochargers come into action, optimally adjusted to the cylinder capacity and the performance of the engine. With this construction, the inertia moment of the drive is minimised and provides improved throttle response. What the turbochargers leave behind: prejudices. What they achieve instead: very high torque values.
It has a technical ring to it, that unmistakeable throaty sound. The sound of a 911. And a performance that is experienced by the driver immediately. As direct acceleration. As unrestrained forward thrust. Almost a “hit” on the back, when the engine unleashes its raw power.
