MODEL HISTORY & PRODUCTION
It was the sixth generation of the Porsche Turbo and it had to offer more than any other 911 for street use. It wasn’t a race-car, but a supercar dressed as a GT vehicle. And it was good at both.
In February 2006, Porsche unveiled the Turbo at the Geneva Motor Show. It looked more aggressive than its Carrera siblings. The wide rear wheel arch air intakes told the world that the 911 was back, promising to offer exhilarating on road performance and be a fierce racetrack competitor at the weekend.
On the front, a new bumper was developed with LEDs incorporated into the outer air inlets, and the centre grille was made as wide as it could be without interfering with the side scoops needed to cool the brakes. A new set of sills were added, and at the back, an extendable split-wing was installed, rising at speeds over 75 mph (120 kph) and retracting at 50 mph (80 kph). It added up to 27 kg (60 lbs) of downforce at maximum speed.
Inside, the 911 Turbo was fitted with leather upholstery as standard. The sport-bucket seats were powered and with memory for the driver’s side. Like its predecessor, the 2006 Turbo came equipped with the PCM (Porsche Communication Management) system, including the DVD-based navigation system. The 13-speakers Bose sound system was tuned for a concert-like, high-quality, experience.
The 3.6 litre engine was turbocharged with Variable Turbine Geometry, the first on the market for a petrol engine. That, along with a bigger intercooler, allowed a faster response from the engine. With its 480 hp and the all-wheel-drive system, the car could sprint from a standing start without wheel spin to 60 mph in 3.7 seconds and go on to a top speed of 193 mph.
