Porsche has just unveiled the seventh generation 911 Turbo at the Frankfurt Motor Show and will go on sale shortly in Germany. As part of the new car’s introduction Porsche Executive Vice President of Research and Development Wolfgang Durheimer talks about the company’s latest high performance creation.
The 2010 Porsche 911 Turbo is a true 21st century super car with more power, a lower curb weight, improved handling, a higher top speed and improved fuel economy. Under the rear deck lid Porsche has placed a 3.8 Liter direct injected flat six engine that delivers 500 HP and is available with Porsche’s new PDK seven speed transmission. Thanks to the new refinements the 911 Turbo now gets an estimated 24 MPG and can sprint from 0 to 60 MPH in just 3.4 seconds and reach a top speed of 194 MPH.
