    Porsche 911 991-series to go turbo across the range? To combine acceptably low CO2 emissions with the power that its customers desire, Porsche will extend turbocharging to the 911 Carrera (the current model is pictured), always normally aspirated up until now. It is expected that for the “Gen 2” 911 – the mid term engineering update on the 991-series – both the Carrera and Carrera S will receive new turbo engines.

    2018 Porsche 911 Carrera T

    ADMITTEDLY, IT’S BEEN a while, but when I learnt the alphabet, T definitely came after S. Not so at Porsche, which has slotted the new 911 Carrera T in below the Carrera S.
