Report: Porsche’s new 911 could sport 2.7L turbo flat-six

Porsche has a long history making both naturally-aspirated and turbocharged flat-six engines.

But due to recent trends, it’s obvious that Porsche’s being pressured more and more to produce turbo engines for their non-Turbo models, if you know what we mean.

Ok. You have the basic 911 and then the 911 Turbo. There’s always been the distinction that normal 911s always have a naturally-aspirated model while opting for the full-fledged Turbo 911 means a whole lot more car.

But now, according to Motoring, Porsche may be prepping their non-Turbo 911s for a new turbo motor–a 2.7L flat-six to help boost fuel economy, without sacrificing power. Furthermore, the more powerful S model should gain a 3.4L turbocharged flat-six with more than 405hp on tap while the 2.7L mill produces up to that figure.

A facelifted 911 is expected to show up at Frankfurt later this year.
