2010 Porsche 911 Turbo details released

Porsche revealed the new 2010 911 GT3 earlier this year, and yesterday the first official details of the 2010 Porsche 911 Turbo have surfaced.

Porsche has decided to up the Turbo’s performance for 2010. But not just in terms of power, Porsche is performing a complete overhaul for their newest Turbo, including less weight, RWD bias and an even more sporting character.

The big news for the upgraded Porsche is the new engine. With the current 3.6-litre six making way for the 3.8-litre direct injected flat-six from the Carrera S. Coupled to two variable-vane turbos, power is now sitting bang on 500 hp (373kW). The 2010 Porsche 911 Turbo is likely to be the quickest AWD production Porsche ever, getting to 100km/h in around 3.7 seconds. Top Speed should climb to around 312km/h.

The fun continues with a reprogrammed Porsche Traction Management system that distributes torque between the front and rear differentials via an electric multi-plate clutch. Apparently the PSM (Porsche Stability Management) has been re-calibrated to provide a more sports focused ride.

The direct injected engine has seen fuel economy improve, with CO2 emissions and fuel consumption cut by around 18 percent over the current generation Turbo.

The 2010 Porsche 911 Turbo will debut at the upcoming Frankfurt Motor Show next month.
