This Turbo is equipped with a 3.6 L twin-turbocharged Mezger engine that delivers 488 HP to all four wheels by way of a desirable 6-speed manual transmission featuring a locking rear differential. With this bulletproof drivetrain, the Turbo achieves a 0-60 time of approximately 3.8 seconds while maxing out at a top speed of 193 mph. The Variable Turbine Geometry utilized in these engines adapts the vanes on the turbine wheel to reduce turbo lag at low speeds while opening to prevent excessive back pressure at high RPM. Distinctive yellow calipers signify Porsche’s robust carbon-ceramic (PCCB) braking system that curbs this car’s impressive power. A comprehensive service and safety inspection was carried out by a certified Porsche dealer in May of 2019 and the seller states that this Turbo remains in excellent driving condition.
