    Good news for 911/911 Turbo lovers

    Wolfgang Dürheimer, the CEO of technical development (or better said THE Weissach BOSS), said in an interview that for the next 10 years, the 911 will keep it's flat six engine.
    For 911 Turbo lovers interesting: he said that the 996 Turbo is good for 500 HP ... Well, speculations may start now.

    good news!!!

    Ciao

    So that makes it MY'12/'13

    Re: Good news for 911/911 Turbo lovers

    Any increased powerkit or other significant changes for MY 03? Your speculation on MY 04?

    Another Question RC...

    Where did you read this article? I would like to read it myself too. Could you post a link to the article or reference the magazine you read it in? Thanks.

    This is great to hear, but it dosen't rule out the possibility of a V8 "S" option, or am I wrong?

    Q. for RC

    Is this mean that from the new body(996) production it'll go on for 10 years, which makes it 2008, or from now(2002) it'll go on for another 10 years?

    I'm trying to speculate ...

    My personal guess would be that Porsche keeps the flat six engine for the new 911 generation (due for MY 2005???) but also offers a V8 engine on the new 911. Why not?
    To Ron: I don't think that the current 911 model will make it into the year 2010.

    Regarding a power upgrade on the Turbo: what Dürheimer said actually gives more credibility to an old rumor who said that Dr. Wiedeking wanted to have 500 HP on the 996 Turbo from the start but marketing department was against it. No doubt, the 996 Turbo IS in fact good for 500 HP. I personally know so many tuned 996 Turbos and none of them had serious problems, not even after driving almost 70000 km (!) pretty hard.
    My speculation (PLEASE ... this is PURE speculation!) would be: 996 Turbo gets 450 HP starting with latest MY 2004. At the same time a powerkit with 500 HP will be offered OR a 996 Turbo S with 500 HP. Again, this is pure speculation.
