The German sorts car maker Porsche has just annonced pricing for the 911 Turbo that will go on sale in the U.S. market starting January 30. The fixed roof coupe variant will be priced at $132,800 and as the top goes down the cost goes up to a slightly higher $143,800 for the turbocharged rag top Cabriolet. According to the President and CEO of Porsche Cars North America, Detlev von Platen, "We are very excited to welcome the all-new 2010 Porsche 911 Turbo into the family...More than ever, this super car is a technological tour de force, and the seemingly unanimous accolades from the media support what we already believe; this is the best 911 Turbo ever."
In either form the 911 Turbo is powered by a 3.8 Liter twin turbocharged flat six sitting between the wide rear arches and now develops a maximum output of 500 HP and as much as 516 lb-ft of torque with the Sport Chrono Package working its magic, pushing the pair of hairdryers to their limits. The additional power allows the new 911 Turbo to sprint from 0 to 60 MPH in a very quick 3.4 seconds and reach a super car like 194 MPH top speed while returning an estimated 17 MPG in the city and as much as 25 MPG at highway
