Stuttgart, Germany - Dr. Ing. h.c. F. Porsche AG will produce about 4,000 units of the 911 Turbo in the 2000/01 fiscal year which has just begun (August 1 to July 31). It was originally planned to build only 2,500 of these cars during the fiscal year, but with this significant increase the Stuttgart-based sports car manufacturer is responding to exceptionally strong demand from all over the world for its top model. This demand is well in excess of even the company's most optimistic forecasts.  

The new 911 Turbo went on sale in June of this year, in other words just before Porsche's fiscal year drew to a close. Since the press launch in March 2000, experts from all over the world who have driven this flagship of the 911 model line with its 420-horsepower engine and top speed of 305 kilometers an hour (190 mph) have confirmed that it sets new standards and, in the sum of its characteristics and features, is at the absolute leading edge of international sports-car design and construction.  

With its plan to increase 911 Turbo production volume to some 4,000 units in the current fiscal year, Porsche's 'Turbo Tradition' takes on a new dimension. Of the preceding Type 993 model, itself highly successful, 6,314 were built between April 1995 and March 1998, in other words over a three-year period. Including the 993 Turbo, Porsche has manufactured and sold a total of 32,223 Turbos since 1974, when the first 911 Turbo was introduced.
