2020 Porsche 911 Turbo S Boasts a Huge Bump in Power and Torque

  2020 Porsche 911 Turbo S Boasts a Huge Bump in Power and Torque Porsche claims the hottest 992 so far has a zero-to-60-mph time of 2.5 seconds, but we bet we'll beat that.The 992 Turbo S is powered by a twin-turbocharged 3.8-liter flat-six with bigger turbos compared to the 991.2 Turbo S, which we tested for a review published in January. Peak boost on these upsized turbos is 17.4 psi, and the 992's intercoolers are relocated directly above the engine. You'll also be able to get an optional sport exhaust—a 911 Turbo first—that will turn the volume all the way up.

Having set out to buy a Jaguar S Type for the Motorsport scene, I found this rather "well used" Porsche 911 Turbo (930). The car was used for spares for a

As far as engine-swapped cars go, this is a strange one. It's a 996-generation 911 Turbo that's had its flat-six swapped out for a Volkswagen VR6 engine tuned to 1200 horsepower. The car is now a runway racer, and sounds unlike any 911 we've heard before.

According to Engine Swap Depot, the car was built by Jay Lawlor of Speed Density Motorsports, a shop in Lewisburg, Tennessee. The car is all stock from the outside, down to the factory five-spoke wheels. Things only get interesting when you crack open the rear bonnet.

Sitting in place of the stock powerplant is a 3.2-liter VR6 engine sourced from a 2004 Touareg SUV. It's packed with a Golf R32 crankshaft, JE forged pistons, Pauter X-beam rods, and a stock ported head. Forced induction comes thanks to a Precision 8385 turbocharger pushing air through a custom manifold. Handling fuel duties are three Walbro pumps and twelve 1700-cc injectors—two for each cylinder. It runs on E85 thanks to a standalone Syvecs ECU, making a total of 1202 horsepower.

The 2020 Porsche 911 Turbo S Is Getting a Big Power Bump

  The 2020 Porsche 911 Turbo S Is Getting a Big Power Bump The 911 Turbo S is already one of the quickest cars around, but it's getting a healthy dollop of extra power next year. The 2019 Porsche 911 Turbo S is already one of the quickest cars around, but next year, when the 992-generation Turbo S launches, it'll get a full 61 more horsepower, according to Car and Driver. The power bump will take Porsche's 3.8-liter flat-six engine to 641 horsepower, beating out brawny supercars like the 631-horsepower Lamborghini Huracán and 592-horsepower McLaren 600LT. Torque will also get a sizable boost to 590 lb-ft, a 37 lb-ft improvement over the outgoing car.

The following is a list of engines used in Porsche automobiles: 1939 1100 cc 40 PS (29 kW; 39 bhp) or 50 PS (37 kW; 49 bhp) air-cooled boxer flat-four. 356. 1948–1953 1.1 L (1,086 cc) 29 kW (39 PS; 39 bhp) 70 N⋅m (52 lb⋅ft) Type 369 air-cooled, four-stroke, OHV boxer flat-four (1100).

This summer Lawlor was able to achieve a maximum speed of 179 mph at the Pikes Peak half-mile Shift Sector event this summer, but back then, the car was making "just" 900 horsepower to the wheels.

Engine Swap Depot says Lawlor plans to upgrade the engine with a CNC ported head, and swap out the manual transmission with a PDK dual-clutch unit out of a 991-generation 911 Turbo. That sounds like a hell of a project to take on, but considering how far he's come so far, we bet he'll be able to pull it off. We can't wait to find out.

The Porsche 718 Would Not Exist Without China .
We spoke with Porsche's sports car boss, Dr. Frank-Steffen Walliser, about the future of the 718 Boxster and Cayman. In the U.S., the Porsche 718 Boxster and Cayman live in the shadow of the 911. It's tough to draw a direct comparison in sales numbers, but typically, Porsche sells a good bit more 911s here than 718s. In China, though, the 718 does much better. And its success there is critical to the health of Porsche's mid-engine sports cars. "I have to say without China, the whole model line would not exist," Porsche sports-car head Dr. Frank-Steffen Walliser told Road & Track at the L.A. Auto Show.
