Current ‘Porsche Turbo’ headlines may well be reserved for the company’s first allelectric sports car, the Taycan Turbo – a bizarre name given the car is completely devoid of any turbocharger. Photograph courtesy Andreas Mau.
One of the halo models of the whole 992-generation range has been papped more times than Post Malone over the past few months. Traditional 911 Turbo cues remain, including slim side vents in front of the rear wheels, square quad exhausts and a whale tail with a deployable spoiler nestled within. Expect around 600bhp from the punchiest Turbo S model, all-wheel drive and the PDK auto as your only transmission option.
But both will eventually be usurped by mega-power hybrid model
Now that it is 2020 (at least as you read this – as I write it I don’t even know who won the bloody election), I’ve been thinking about what Porsche I’m most looking for driving in 2020, and I guess a lot depends on whether we’ll even see let alone get a go in the new GT3. My guess is that even if it’s shown, I won’t get behind the wheel this year. But a new 2021 Porsche 911 Turbo 992? That seems altogether more likely.
