This is not an official news, but there are rumors that a more powerful Porsche Turbo is on the way.

It is probably a tuning kit for the Turbo’s engine: a new flat-6 engine, cooled with liquid, with 480 hp at 6000 rpm, 457 lbs-ft at 1950 rpm. The new kit will have a top speed of 192 mph and it will sprint from 0 to 60 mph in 3.9 seconds (6 speed manual transmission).

With a special modification of the engine’s ECU, the maximum power will go up to 540 hp, the top speed will probably be the same, but the sprint from 0 to 100 mpg will be made faster with a 1.3 seconds.
