The 2019 Porsche 911 Turbo S is already one of the quickest cars around, but next year, when the 992-generation Turbo S launches, it’ll get a full 61 more horsepower, according to Car and Driver.
The power bump will take Porsche’s 3.8-liter flat-six engine to 641 horsepower, beating out brawny supercars like the 631-horsepower Lamborghini Huracán and 592-horsepower McLaren 600LT. Torque will also get a sizable boost to 590 lb-ft, a 37 lb-ft improvement over the outgoing car. And because of its lightning-quick eight-speed PDK gearbox and rear-engined design, it should be brutally fast off the line.
The current car, despite being down over 100 horsepower compared to serious supercars like the McLaren 720s, still offers neck-breaking acceleration. But Porsche says the new car will hit 60 mph in 2.5 seconds, 0.3 seconds quicker than the current Turbo S, according to Car and Driver.
Car and Driver’s quickest 0-60 time for the current Turbo S is 2.7 seconds—0.1 seconds more brisk than Porsche’s claim. If the new Turbo S similarly over performs, it’ll safely be in hypercar territory.
Pricing and an official release date won’t be announced until next year, but for reference, the current 911 Turbo S starts at $190,700.
