Where's the new part?

As usual, according to Porsche,the new 911 Turbo is all-new, yet delivers a vehicle that--at a glance--is indistinguishable from the old model. This is a good thing for 911 purists. But if you didn't like the old model's bug-eyed look, the new one won't sit any better with you.

Invisible changes

While the new 911 Turbo benefits from the World's Most Subtle face-lift, the biggest changes are measured not with the eye but with a stopwatch.

Alphabet soup

The 911 Turbo's drivetrain is an alphabet soup of systems working together. DFI and VTG help the engine to operate powerfully and efficiently. PDK selects the gears and a combination of PTV, PTM, and PSM keep the power and grip in check. That's a mouthful.

Power!

What this means is that the 911 Turbo blows by 60 mph from a stop in 3.2 seconds before hitting a top track speed of 194 mph.
