Porsche unveiled at the 2016 Detroit Auto Show the new 2017 911 and 911 Turbo. The new high-performance models come to market with either 540 or 580 horsepower – depending on which version of the 3.8-liter, twin-turbocharged flat-six engine you choose – an increase of 20 horsepower over the previous models.

The increase power output allows the the 911 Turbo to hit 2.7 seconds from 0 to 60 mph and 2.9 seconds for the “regular” 911. Top speed for the S model is limited to 200 mph.

    Wait… How did they unveil it, when they already are at the showrooms ?

    Guess there is no need for a GT2. The 911 Turbo is pretty much a GT2 without having the GT2 badge.
