The new 911 answers questions about the future of the sports car with a quantum leap in performance. By reducing fuel consumption, but not by suppressing emotions. By following a principle that has already changed everything once before: in 1974, with the first 911
Developed completely from scratch, the six-cylinder twin-turbo engines of the 911
Expressed in figures, this means an extra 20 hp of power, an extra 43 lb.-ft. of torque and engine speeds of up to 7,500 rpm. And a reduced fuel consumption.
The engine of the 911
The propulsive potential of the engine in the S models, featuring upsized turbochargers and independent exhaust system, is even more impressive. It generates a power output of 420 hp and the maximum torque is a mighty 368 lb.-ft., available from as low as 1,700 rpm. With
What cannot be expressed in figures: the legendary sound of a 911 six-cylinder horizontally opposed engine. And the experience is all the more intense for it.
The stand-out qualities of the new twinturbo engines are their extraordinarily direct responsiveness and wide torque plateau, reached early in the low end of the rpm band. Combined with the high rev limit – and the legendary sound of a 911 six-cylinder horizontally opposed engine. In short: excellent performance that feeds back to the driver in an instant.
