Porsche has today released details – as well as one grainy image – of its facelifted 2010 911 Turbo model and, consistent with brand’s tradition of minimal styling changes, the main alterations to this year’s model take place beneath the skin.
As well as a moderate increase in price, the 2010 model receives more power, better handling, chrome headlamps surrounds, revised foglamps and new alloy wheels. Porsche’s highly acclaimed PDK dual-clutch gearbox is also available as an option.
At the heart of the operation is a new 3.8-litre direct-injection engine that boasts a healthy 373kW, and if the unofficial figures are to be believed (0-100km/h in 3.7 seconds) this will make the 2010 911 Turbo the quickest accelerating production AWD in the company’s history.
Porsche will display the car in the flesh for the first time at next month’s Frankfurt Motor Show. CarAdvice will keep you posted.
