The combination of PDK, Direct Fuel
Injection and turbocharging ensures an unprecedented standard of
efficiency, agility, responsiveness and performance, the Porsche
911 Turbo reducing CO2 emissions versus its predecessor by
almost 18 per cent and therefore ranking unique in its segment
also in this respect. Depending on the configuration of the car,
the new top model requires just 11.4 - 11.7 ltr/100 km (equal to
24.8 - 24.1 mpg imp) under the EU5 standard.
And unlike most other cars in its
segment, the new Turbo remains even further below the crucial
level of fuel consumption for gas guzzler tax in the USA, the
special tax imposed on cars with substantial fuel consumption.
All this despite acceleration to 100 km/h in 3.4 seconds. Top
speed, in turn, is 312 km/h or 194 mph.
The Turbo driver of the future will
also enjoy a further improvement in driving dynamics, detailed
enhancement of PTM fully controlled all-wheel drive and PSM
Porsche Stability Management being further supported by new PTV
Porsche Torque Vectoring available as an option. This makes the
car even more agile and precise in its steering for an even
higher level of driving pleasure.
