Just days after a completely undisguised version of Porsche’s updated 911 Carrera, the Type 991.2, was spotted tested on the Nürburgring, some of the official specs have surfaced in German media. The leaked specs confirm the updated 911 Carrera models will adopt smaller, turbocharged engines, meaning the only 911 variants to be naturally aspirated going forward will be the track-focused GT cars.
As Auto Bild first reported, Porsche will fit its updated Carrera and Carrera S with a common turbocharged 3.0-liter flat-six. The engine, thus, replaces two existing units: the 3.4-liter unit in the current Carrera, and the 3.8-liter unit in the current Carrera S. The updated Carrera will have 370 horsepower on tap, up from the current model’s 350-hp rating; and the updated Carrera S will have 420 hp, up from the current 400-hp rating.
