2007 Porsche 911 TurboMap
This is the sixth generation of the 911 Turbo. What could possibly be new about this new model?
It has a new turbocharged engine with variable-geometry turbos that make 570 horsepower to the rear wheels. There’s also a new four-wheel-drive system with electronic control over the way torque is distributed among the four wheels. And thanks to the use of aluminum in key locations, it’s about 90 pounds lighter than the 996 Turbo. Aluminum doors alone save 31 pounds.
How different does it look from the standard 997?
Not very. The Turbo uses the body of the 997 Carrera 4, which has wider front and rear fenders—1.7 inches overall. From the front, it looks a little like the Carrera GT, but most bystanders will still see a 911.
Detail changes include a unique front spoiler and a rear one that’s a two-stage affair, as it is with the 996 Turbo. New lower rear bodywork matches the special Turbo exhaust pipes. The drag coefficient is 0.31, and the Turbo body generates virtually no lift in front and a little downforce in the rear when the spoiler is extended.
