This increase in power was possible thanks to the twin-turbo six-cylinder horizontally opposed engines with direct fuel injection (DFI) and VarioCam Plus. They develop an impressive 450 hp at 6,500 rpm.
The maximum torque of 405 lb.-ft. is available across an astonishingly wide torque plateau from 2,150 to 5,000 rpm.
Another burst of adrenaline is triggered by the legendary sound of the boxer engine. With the SPORT or SPORT PLUS button selected, it’s enough to raise goose bumps even when the engine’s idling.
The drive system of the new 911 GTS models is a twin-turbo configuration. It has two turbochargers with charge-air cooling, one for each cylinder bank. Both turbos have been optimally adapted to the displacement and power output of the engine. This construction minimises the inertia of the drivetrain and, in conjunction with rapid regulation of boost pressure, it helps to provide spontaneous responsiveness. The new turbochargers leave the sceptics in their wake and find a new destination: unexplored levels of torque and a performance that hits the driver in an instant.
