ATLANTA–(BUSINESS WIRE)–May 16, 2006–Porsche today announced pricing
for Canada on the 2007 911 Turbo. The new model will carry a suggested price
of $170,700. The destination charge on all Porsche sports cars in Canada is
The sixth generation of the 911 Turbo model features a revolutionary,
twin-turbocharged, 3.6-liter boxer engine with Porsche’s first
gasoline-engine application of variable turbine geometry (VTG), a redesigned
all-wheel-drive system, and evolutionary styling.
The new 911 Turbo’s engine produces 480 hp at 6,000 rpm, 60 hp more than
its predecessor. More notable is the engine’s torque curve, which has been
bolstered and broadened by the variable turbine geometry system. Peak torque
rises to 457 lb-ft (previously 415 lb-ft), but that peak now spans an
extended rpm range from 1,950 to 5,000 rpm, compared to 2,700–4,600 rpm in
the previous 911 Turbo.
To transfer this power to the road, the new 911 Turbo features a
redesigned all-wheel-drive system, with an electronically controlled
multi-disc clutch replacing the previous model’s viscous clutch.
Porsche Traction Management (PTM) allows variable power distribution fore
and aft, and depending on conditions, the system’s electronics constantly
determine optimal torque distribution to ensure ideal traction. Though
powerful, the 911 Turbo’s PTM setup is one of the lightest all-wheel-drive
systems on the market.
A 911 Turbo equipped with the optional 5-speed Tiptronic(R) S automatic
transmission requires only 3.7 seconds to sprint from 0 to 100 km/h.
Equipped with the standard six-speed manual transmission, the new 911 Turbo
reaches the same 100 km/h mark in 3.9 seconds. With either gearbox, the top
track speed of the new 911 Turbo is 310 km/h.
