    • 2020/2021 Porsche 911 (992) Turbo S Nurburgring testing - Rumored specifications

      We are nearing the Porsche 992 generation 911 Turbo reveal. This latest test mule was spotted uncovered doing some lap testing. Based on the exhaust design, this is the Turbo S model which is expected to receive a minor bump in horsepower.


      So how much power? The rumor is 640 horsepower from a slightly tweaked 3.8 liter powerplant. The standard 911 Turbo is expected to be right at the 600 horse mark.

      As crazy as it sounds, is this enough power for the 911 Turbo to play with the big boys? A hybrid version with over 700 horsepower is expected with the 992.2 facelift version.

      Hopefully Porsche steps things up as the 911 Turbo always had a reputation as a giant slayer in the automotive world. Based on the impressive performance from the 992 Carrera S, the 992 Turbo model should shock and awe.

        What is taking them so long to go to dual-injection?

        The gear ratios on the new pdk are more aggressive which helps the 992 carrera's acceleration numbers....its natural the new ratios would help the Turbo as well. This thing is going to be very quick.

        Only to a point. Looks like they are designed to help off the line.

        Agreed that the greatest difference exists in gears 1 & 2 for optimal 0-60 improvement.

        However, every gear ratio in the 992 is shorter than the 991.2 so that means more wheel torque across the entire rpm range.

        Until you shift. So 1 and 2 should on average have higher wheel torque than the 991.2 but once, say, you are in fourth at the same speed the 991.2 was in 3rd it will have less.

        Always a give and take. Unless you raise the redline to compensate...

        Speaking of which, I could go for a 7500 rpm factory 911 Turbo considering the Carrera goes to 7500.

        or raise the torque Click here to enlarge

        992 CS (390lbft) nearly has as much torque as the outgoing 991.2 GTS (405lbft)

        True.
