2010 Porsche 911 Turbo Coupe and Cabriolet Facelift Models Spied

Carscoop Porsche 911 Turbo Facelift Having already introduced the facelift versions of the 911 Carrera, Carrera S, Targa and GT3, Porsche's development team is now concentrating on the 911 Turbo Coupe and Convertible models of the 997 range. Spotted here by our spy photographers with minimal camouflage, the new 997 Turbos will be distinguished on the outside by the restyled LED tail lamps, the beefier exhaust pipes and the newly styled alloy wheels. While the cosmetic changes are extremely subtle, as with all refreshed 997 models, the big news for the Turbo is under the bonnet.

Carscoop sources state that like the rest of the updated 997s, the range-topping 911's turbocharged flat-six engine will benefit from a new direct-injection system that will help increase output from 480HP to more than 500HP and at the same time, reduce consumption and CO2 emissions by nearly 15 percent.

There's also talk of a modified version of Porsche's all-new PDK seven-speed double-clutch transmission that should shave off a couple of tenths of a second in the 0-100km/h (62mph) sprint. Expect to see the facelifted 911 Turbo Coupe and Convertible arriving in showrooms during the second half of the year.

They just don't want to change the style. Ofc they can and we can see that with the Carerra GT and some others! This is a one of a kind pipeline and tradition with Porsche's cars and owners ;)

And just like that Porsche will beat the new Nissan GTR(either now or with the 998 for sure).

how cares about CO2 emissions . it's a super car for god sack . I hope the new transmission is better than the 5 speed tiptronic . from some reason every single time I get one my 996 turbo I feel it's like an auto and slow it's like lambo or the f430 . I have not seen the new car yet but I hope the exhaust will sound like a super-car .those big tips might promise something .

the 911 is one of the most iconic sports cars today because it still has the same basic body and styling from the time it was first made. they shoyld keep it the same, except the performance of course.

If you're wanting the body to change, then you really don't understand what it means to have a Porsche. Why would you change the body on a car that has a perfect design? Why do you think you never see Ferrari and the other consistently in the winner's circle? Because they keep tweaking the body for looks and never get it right. If you want to see a Ferrari go look inside the repair shop of the dealer.
