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.
Featuring four turbochargers, two intercoolers, four adjustable camshafts, a complex multistage intake manifold, and dual-stage exhaust, the 3.9-liter engine is expected to deliver 650 hp and shoot the machine from a standstill to 100 km/h in an estimated 2.5 seconds.
These guys test a lot of vehicles and were one of the first to put the Porsche 997 Turbo S through it’s paces. Their test vehicle blew through the 3 second mark and was quickly compared to the Bugatti Veyron when it came to launching from a dig!
