According to German magazine AutoBild, the new Porsche 911 Turbo will be equipped with four wheel steering: a technical solution to enhance driving agility and car handling. The 4WS system will work together with the four-wheel drive. According to the latest rumours, the new 991 Turbo is powered by a new tri-turbo 3.8-litre boxer engine with maximum output between 530 and 550 hp, capable of accelerating from 0 to 100 km / h in just 3.3 seconds with top speed of about 315 km / h.
The bodywork will be featuring specific fascias, rear spoiler and two air vents at the sides of the car, to feed oxygen to the boxer engine placed at the rear. Compared to the 911 Carrera and Carrera S (RWD), the 911 Turbo with 4 × 4 “PTM” (Porsche Traction Management) system will sport larger rear fenders, widened by 22 mm on each side and designed to accommodate wider rear tyres. Two gearboxes to choose from: a 7-speed manual or the sophisticated 7-speed PDK dual-clutch transmission, as optional. Porsche 911 Turbo will be presented in 2013 and will be marketed in 2014.
