New Porsche 911 Turbo Confirmed For Geneva Motor Show With 200 MPH Capability

  • More powerful engine will push 992-generation Turbo past 200 mph
  • Cars will retain 3.8-litre flat-6 engine which will benefit from larger turbos
  • At least 620 horsepower expected in the Turbo S

The 992-generation Porsche 911 Turbo and Turbo S will debut at the Geneva Motor Show next month. Both cars will benefit from larger turbochargers which will push horsepower numbers past 600 horsepower. At least, that’s what we expect.

The current Porsche 911 Turbo makes 540 horsepower while the Turbo S delivers 580 horsepower. The latter gets to 100 km/h in under 2.9 seconds while the former does the same sprint in 3.0 seconds. In other words, the Porsche 911 Turbo lineup is the fastest 911 you can buy in a straight line.

The next-generation 911 Turbo and Turbo S shouldn’t have any trouble keeping that title. No specs have been confirmed as of yet, but we know the next Turbo and Turbo S will use the same 3.8-litre flat-6 that powers the current generation. The main difference will be larger turbochargers which are expected to push horsepower numbers past 600. The Turbo S is expected to deliver 620 bhp.

The 911 Turbo should now be able to reach over 200 mph. It’s current top speed was rated at 198 mph.

The 911 Turbo and Turbo S will be more powerful and according to early reports they won’t be that much heavier than the current lineup. The 992-generation 911 has a lighter body than the 991 models which should compensate the increased weight of the powertrain changes made to the 992 911 Turbo.
