Confirmed: 2015 Porsche 911 Will Go Turbo

Facelift

Leaving only the GT3 models naturally aspirated.

AsPorsche prepares its 2015 facelift for the 991 Porsche 911 (dubbed the 991.2),it seems the company is hiding something under the cars' hoods that is much sneakierthan just a camouflaged facelift. As Car Magazine reports, the Germans will befitting the entire 911 Carrera range with turbocharged engines. However, fearnot, the cars will also gain forced induction, allowing them to produce morepower than the outgoing generation. The Carrera will get a 2.9-literturbocharged flat-six producing a reported 400 horsepower and 400 lb-ft oftorque.

The Carrera S's turbocharged 3.8-liter engine could churn out as much as530 hp and 520 lb-ft of torque. Seeing as the current 911 Turbo only produces520 hp, expect the company to release a higher powered model to justify its heftyprice tag premium. For now, the GT3 and GT3 RS will remain naturally aspirated,with a focus on weight reduction in upcoming models.
