Stuttgart – Although the 911 Turbo models are no longer the only ones in the range to have turbo power, thanks to the new Carreras being force fed, the Turbo badge still carries top dog status and that applies even more so to the refreshed versions.

Revealed on the web ahead of their debut at the Detroit Motor Show in January, the facelifted 911 Turbo and Turbo S both receive a 15kW power boost to their respective 3.8-litre twin-turbocharged flat-six engines.

Thanks to modified inlet ports, new injection nozzles and higher fuel pressure the Turbo is now good for 397kW while the Turbo S gains new turbochargers with larger compressors to push 427kW.

What does this mean on the street? According to Porsche the Turbo will now run from 0-100km/h in three seconds flat and reach a top speed of 319km/h. The Turbo S runs to 100 in 2.9s and reaches 330km/h. Porsche also claims slight improvements to fuel consumption but let’s not open that can of worms.
