Official photos for the 2013 Porsche 991 turbo have been released, all of which look to have been taken in Cape Town South Africa. For the standard Turbo, the result is 520 horsepower, with a conservative 0-60 mph sprint of 3.2 seconds and a top speed of 196 mph. Turbo S with 560 horsepower, 0-60 mph in just 2.9 seconds and a top speed of 198 mph.
Mind blowing technology, simply staggering numbers – pretty much all I could say after watching Porsche’s Andreas Preuninger (The man behind all of Porsche’s GT cars) elaborate on the technology that went into the 991 Porsche GT3. Among them the fastest gear shifting mechanism in ANY production car on the planet. Les than 100th of a millisecond, together with an updated engine capable of over 9000 rpm range!
We got a few owner-experts and one semi-professional driver to test out a stock 2007 Porsche Turbo, another equipped with after market Bilstein coilovers (and other goodies), a 2008 GT2, and 2010 Porsche GT3. Switching back and forth between all four cars for about 3-4 hours in twisty canyon roads – we all reached some interesting conclusions.
