Porsche 911 Turbo Models - Engines

Engines

Presence requires a strong foundation. On the 911 Turbo models, this is the 3.8-litre, twin-turbo, six-cylinder engine at the rear. The engine of the 911 has the typical, horizontally opposed arrangement for excellent balancing of masses and low vibration. The drive unit’s low position at the rear gives the vehicle a low centre of gravity. Two exhaust turbochargers with Variable Turbine Geometry (VTG) make for a dynamic response, high torque and exceptional performance figures.

The engine comes in two power levels: in the 911 Turbo and in the 911 Turbo Cabriolet, it delivers 397 kW (540 hp). By deploying larger turbochargers and electronics further optimised for performance, the 911 Turbo S models have 427 kW (580 hp) available.

This superior performance is especially remarkable contrasted with the fuel consumption and CO2 emissions values. These are comparatively lower. This is the result of technologies that make efficient use of fuel. In addition to direct fuel injection and VarioCam Plus, a system that controls the camshafts on the inlet side and controls valve lift, the measures responsible include the auto start/stop function and the coasting function.

Another important factor is that the low engine weight relative to its high output benefits both agility and fuel consumption.

The engine features a light-alloy construction with integrated dry sump lubrication. Forged connecting rods are used as well as forged aluminium pistons moving in cylinders made from an aluminium/silicon alloy.

Together, these help deliver the 911 Turbo driving experience. Characterised by extraordinary engine power and surprisingly low consumption. And this truly special presence.
