Porsche 911 To Get A 2.7L Engine? Can This Be True?
When Porsche gives the current generation 911, codenamed the 991 its mid-cycle facelift it will replace the normally aspirated 257kW 3.4 litre engine in the entry-level Carrera model with a turbocharged 260kW 2.7 litre engine. This is just for Co2 emissions and nothing else.
Similarly, the Carrera S will switch from a normally aspirated 3.8 litre to a turbocharged 3.0 litre engine. Power will increase from 294kW to 320kW.
This news comes from the mouth of none other than Walter Röhrl who revealed Porsche’s plans during winter testing in Sweden. The legendary Röhrl spoke quite freely about the future plans of Porsche, giving insights into future Boxster/Cayman models and the forthcoming 911 GT3 RS.
