2007 Porsche 911 Turbo First Drive by Edmunds’ Inside Line



Like every new 911 introduced in the last two years, the Turbo builds on the standard rear-engine, rear-wheel-drive 997 Carrera introduced in 2005. Upgrades to the Turbo include wider rear bodywork, standard all-wheel drive and a pair of variable geometry turbochargers feeding a 3.6-liter flat-six engine. Although it shares the same displacement as the standard Carrera, the Turbo’s six is more closely related to the engine used in the track-focused 911 GT3, with a stronger block and lower 6600-rpm redline.
