The new Porsche 911 Turbo has arrived and it’s packing a 6-cylinder, 3.8 litre engine putting out 500 hp (368 kW) and 650 Nm of torque.

For the first time, this Porsche engine has been mated to the PDK, Porsche’s double-clutch gearbox. The engine features direct injection and of course a turbocharger with variable turbine geometry to maximise the power from the 3.8 litre displacement.

The video below provides an introduction of the new Porsche 911 Turbo by Wolfgang Durheimer, vice president for research and development at Porsche AG.

An impressive engineering feature is the new Porsche Torque Vectoring (PTV) system that shifts torque to either the right or left rear wheel in response to any understeer while turning, keeping the car moving at optimal efficiency in the direction that it’s pointed with the steering wheel.

The numbers are suitable staggering: 0 to 100 km/h in 3.4 seconds and 0 to 200 km/h in 11.6 seconds. Top speed is 312 km/h.

Fuel economy is also an impressive 11.6 litres/100 km, considering the amount of power on tap.

The new Porsche 911 Turbo goes on sale in Germany on November 21 in both coupe and cabriolet variants, global sales should follow shortly after.

Check out the video below, it’s worth a look.
