Official: New Porsche 911 Turbo Reveal Date

Sports Cars / Comments

You won't have to wait long to see Porsche's new 600-hp sports car.

For months now, all of the attention has been on the Porsche Taycan, the firm's first-ever all-electric vehicle. There was also the new Porsche 718 Boxster and Porsche 718 Cayman GTS 4.0, as well as the Porsche Macan GTS. But now it's time for Porsche to get back to its roots with the model that has defined it for decades, the 911. We can now officially report that the next-generation Porsche 911 Turbo will debut next month at the 2020 Geneva Motor Show. This event is only around three weeks away.

Over the past several months, our spy photographers have managed to snap 992 911 Turbo test mules out doing their thing. They feature the usual Turbo required additions, such as the large side air vents, a fixed rear spoiler, and enhanced bodywork including widened front and rear wheel arches.

Unique wheel designs are also part of the package. Stuffed in the rear will be a new 3.8-liter twin-turbo flat-six. Thanks to some additional hardware taken from the 991.2 GT2 RS, expect total output to be around 570-600 horsepower. The Turbo S will likely churn out around 620-640 hp. For comparison, the outgoing 991.2 911 Turbo S generated 580 hp and 553 lb-ft of torque. Power will be sent to all four wheels through the familiar 7-speed PDK transmission.

The new and larger single-scroll BorgWarner turbochargers will also make the new 911 Turbo heavier than its predecessor, despite the fact its bodyshell is made from lightweight alloys.

Expect a 0-60 mph time of about 2.5 seconds (for the Turbo S) while top speed will exceed 200 mph. We don't know at this time whether the Geneva reveal will also include the new Turbo Cabrio, but the coupe is confirmed. Expect 992 911 Turbo and Turbo S prices to increase though we don't yet know by how much. For reference, the outgoing 911 Turbo is priced from about $162,000. Fully-loaded, a $200k price tag is possible. There's a decent chance Porsche will announce pricing and an on-sale date next month as well.

Get ready for the most powerful Porsche 911 Turbo in history.
