In 2006, Dr. Ing. H.c. Porsche will expand it?s present item
line with the help of a brand new 911 Turbo, the sixth generation
of the 911 series. This top-of-the-range model has its world
premiere during the Geneva engine Show on February 28, 2006 and
as from June 24, 2006 it will likely be available in German dealerships.
The 911 Turbo (type 997) has a few improvements. This has an
output of 480 bhp at 6,000 rpm, a 3.6 litre engine, a ranked torque
of 620 Nm and a maximum torque available between 1,950 and
5,000 rpm. Every one of these figures are translated into driving
performance, because the 911 Turbo with six-speed manual transmission
only needs 3.9 seconds getting from zero to 100 km/h. The coupe
reaches 200 km/h in 12.8 moments. Despite these performance
data, Porsche designers succeeded to help keep the average
consumption to 12.8 liters per100 kilometer.
For people who require more rate, the 911 Turbo provides the
optionally Tiptronic S automated transmission. In this manner, it can reach
100 km/h from a standing begin in simply 3.7 moments and 200 km/h in
a mere 12.2 seconds. Both manual and automatic transmissions
have actually a top rate of 310 km/k. Available for the very first time, the optional
?Sport Chrono Package Turbo? improves the vehicle?s flexibility even
The Porsche 911 Turbo features a redesigned all-wheel drive with
an electronically controlled multi-disc clutch. The effect could be the
transfer of this available capacity to the street. That?s because, depending
regarding the driving conditions, this system will determine the suitable torque
circulation to guarantee the best-possible drive. Additionally, Porsche Traction
Management (PTM) ensures adjustable power distribution to the two
driven axles. Which means that on your way the 911Turbo will show
outstanding traction in the torrential rain or snow, high agility on narrow nation
roadways and optimal active security also at high speeds.
The newest 911 Turbo?s driving performance is duly tempered by its braking system
system, which comprises monobloc fixed-caliper disc brakes with six
pistons at the front axle and four at the back. The diameter of the internally
ventilated and perforated braking system discs at the front and back wheels is 350
millimeters. An optimized ceramic brake system that Porsche offers is
Porsche Ceramic Composite Brake (PCCB). This high-tech system
decreases with 17 kilograms the standard brake system and provides an
exemplary diminishing stability.
The major bodywork change of the 911 Turbo is the modified front end with
its distinctive, tautly drawn cooling air inlets. Combined with standard
oval bi-xenon headlights, it’ll determine the new unmistakable image. From
a corner perspective too, the Turbo will seem better. This is certainly due
above all to its tail end, 22 millimeters wider than that of the last
model, to that the redesigned wing spoiler element was aligned.
Next, the lateral atmosphere inlets behind the doorways were redrawn and today
they provide an even more efficient way to obtain cooling atmosphere towards the charge-air intercoolers.
The basic price for the 911 Turbo is 115,000 Euros. In the USA, from July
8, 2006, the car may be offered at $122,000 (perhaps not including taxes).
