Porsche has officially unveiled its new 911 Carrera for 2016. Being the world’s best selling sports car for decades now, they have finally answered the prayers of potential customers with a turbocharged engine.

The completely new engine configuration features a bi-turbo, intensifying the experience to 272kW (370HP) at the rear of the 911 Carrera and 309kW (420HP) in the Carrera S.

In both models, this represents a power increase of 15kW (20HP) contributed by the turbo with modified compressors, a specified exhaust system and tuned engine management.

Exterior wise, the 911 Carrera has been visually refined for 2016. This ranges from new headlights with four-point daytime running lights to door handles without recess covers. A redesigned rear lid features vertical louvres and new rear lights have been added.

Thanks to the Porsche-Doppelkupplung (PDK) gearbox and Sport Chrono Package, the new 911 Carrera sprints from 0 to 100 km/h in 4.2 seconds.

The new Porsche 911 Carrera models will launch at Germany in December this year. Expect to see them in showrooms sometime in 2016.
