Porsche 911 Turbo (type 997)

Porsche 911 Turbo (type 997)

In June 2006, the 997-generation 911 Turbo came onto the market. Thanks to extra power from two exhaust turbochargers, the new Turbo 911 initially had an output of 353 kW (480 PS). The engine was the first series petrol engine to have turbochargers with variable turbine geometry (VTG) that were developed in cooperation with BorgWarner. The inlet-side guide vanes in the turbocharger could be adjusted dynamically.

From 2007, the Turbo Cabriolet was available, featuring a three-layer fabric top that opened or closed within just 20 seconds.

After the facelift for model year 2010, the Turbo, with its newly developed engine, delivered 368 kW (500 PS), and the 911 Turbo S from the same model year even had 390 kW (530 PS) and a Porsche Doppelkupplung (PDK) as standard.
