The 2020 Porsche 992 Turbo and 992 Turbo S Take on the Nurburgring

They Look Wicked Fast

Porsche’s 992 Turbo and 992 Turbo S prototypes were spotted rocketing around the Nurburgring in Germany recently. The YouTube channel Carspotter Jeroen recently posted a video of the cars taking on the ‘Ring. They look stupid fast. Porsche has been seen testing other versions of the car, too.

This video really gives you a look at the two 911 Turbo models. They should be the most impressive Turbo versions ever to come out of Stuttgart. The 992 Turbo is expected to make somewhere around 600 hp from its twin-turbo 3.8-liter flat-six engine. The 992 Turbo S will likely see a bump of about 50 more hp, bringing the total output to 650 hp. 

As Carscoops points out, that amount of power paired with all-wheel drive should make these cars the fastest accelerating non-GT 911s ever. Porsche said nothing of the Nurburgring lap times during testing, but it’s a reasonable bet that they were wicked fast.

More information about these cars will come at a later date. As you can see in the video included below the Turbo and Turbo S look very similar. Carscoops says the Turbo S appears to have a slightly larger rear wing.

Leak Provides an Early Look at the Porsche 992 Turbo

A leaked image has given us our first look at the Porsche 992 Turbo. It is believed that this photo shows the new Porsche 992 Turbo on the production line at the Porsche factory. The source of the images is unclear yet the Turbo air intakes and quad exhaust tailpipes are a giveaway!

We weren’t expecting Porsche to release the new Turbo until September, possibly at the Frankfurt Motor Show 2019. Seeing (almost) fully exposed photos in February, leaked from the factory, seems very premature!

Porsche only recently released the 992 generation of the Porsche 911. It debuted at the Los Angeles Motor Show 2019 last November. The Cabriolet has recently been released and we weren’t expecting a great deal more until the launch of the entry-level Carrera 2 and Carrera 4 Coupe and Cabriolet in a few months.

The Turbo is usually the most powerful version of the ‘normal’ 911’s. The version before we get to the GT3 and RS models. There is very little information about what powers the 992 Turbo at the moment.

The photo shows the rear section of the car with the tell-tale 992 rear lights. Atop the rear decklid sits a spoiler. The photo isn’t entirely clear but this looks larger than the outgoing model. The bodywork is wider and the rear end gets a set of narrow quad tailpipes.
