Porsche’s New 911 Turbo And Turbo S Go Like Stink At The ‘Ring

Porsche 992-gen 911 Turbo and Turbo S prototypes have been spied undergoing testing at the Nurburgring and they appear to be blisteringly fast around the dangerous and demanding German circuit.

The sports car manufacturer has been testing its new pair of 911 Turbo models for quite some time and has also been putting the latest-generation GT3 through its paces as well. However, whereas the new GT3 will stick to a naturally aspirated flat-six, the new Turbo and Turbo S will feature tweaked versions of the twin-turbo 3.8-liter unit driving the current models.

Porsche is expected to extract roughly 600 hp out of the flat-six powering the ‘regular’ 911 Turbo, while the Turbo S could have upwards of 650 hp. These figures, combined with all-wheel drive, should make them the fastest accelerating non-GT 911s ever and result in some rather impressive lap times at the Nurburgring.

The two prototypes featured in the clip below look largely identical, but it appears that the Turbo S has a slightly larger rear wing. Thanks to its advanced AWD and PDK transmission, there’s a chance it may dip below 7 minutes at the ‘Ring, putting it within striking distance of the track-focused GT2 RS.

In February, an image surfaced online reportedly showing the 2020 911 Turbo on Porsche’s production line without any camouflage or body cladding. This photo confirmed that, just like the outgoing model, the new 911 Turbo will feature different front and rear bumpers than lesser models while also receiving deeper side skirts and square quad tailpipes.

      Are you kidding? Seems stunningly fast, race car fast.

      My biggest concern is about the sound, you hear mostly the tyres more than the engine… In a 911 Turbo…
