According to a few sources on the internet, the German sports car builder Porsche is preparing an even more powerful version of the Carrera Turbo for 2010, the Turbo S will take the twin turbocharged 997 911 to the next level with added power and matching performance and should be in showrooms as early as next spring. According to one source, TeamSpeed, the Turbo S Porsche will come from the factory with 550 HP, that is up from the standard version’s 473 HP and 457 lb-ft of torque most likely though an increased displacement regimen as well as adding a little extra boost into the mix. In order to handle the extra power, the Turbo S will be fitted with a set of Porsche’s ceramic composite brakes and a set of RS style center locking wheels to house them. The future Turbo S would also differentiate itself from the standard twin turbocharged 911 with some bespoke bodywork to go with the new high performance persona.

Stay tuned to Top Speed as we will get back to you with more details as soon as we get them.

It seems Porche is going the American way, packing in the power but not the handling. I prefer a GT3 over this car. And doesn’t the standard version for 2010 have 500hp?

porsche is picking up its game and so are other manufacturers, Nissan better watch out, But personally I do not think I will ever see a car in my lifetime that is so overhyped as the GT-R sure it is a great and outstanding car but even when the ferrari enzo came out it wasnt as much hype as the GT-R
