The upcoming 992-based Porsche 911 Turbo is perhaps the most “leaked” performance car in recent years but the company still feels the need to place it under a cover and “tease” its premiere on March 3.
Following the cancellation of the 2020 Geneva Motor Show, Porsche released a short video showing the new king of the 911 family all covered up and waiting for its big reveal moment, which will take place online via a livestream.
Porsche didn’t even bother adding much camo on its latest test cars while images of the actual 2021 911 Turbo in all its naked glory have also been finding their way online, so we have a pretty good idea of what to expect.
The Stuttgart-based company will reveal both the Turbo and the Turbo S variants of the 992, which use an updated version of the twin-turbo 3.8-liter flat-six found on the previous models. The “base” Turbo will make do with around 580 HP while the Turbo S will offer no less than 641 HP (650 PS).
The latter will also be capable of causing some serious whiplash effect on the driver and passenger, with a 0-60 mph in 2.5 seconds (0-100 km/h in 2.7). Top speed of the new Porsche 911 Turbo S will be set at around the 208 mph mark (334 km/h).
All-wheel drive is of course present, with limited-slip differentials at the middle and rear, while Porsche opted for the latest eight-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission as standard fit.
The new 911 Turbo and Turbo S models will of course set apart themselves from the rest of the 911 family thanks to their specific aero agenda and a set of delicious wider fenders. Stay tuned.
