2010 Porsche 911 Turbo

Doppelkupplungsgetriebe. German for ‘dual-clutch’. It’s the reason the seven-speed gearbox on the Porsche 911 Turbo does zero to 60mph in 3.2 seconds. Impressive.

This monster of power has a 500-hp, 3.8-liter directed injected flat-six. Thanks to direct injection and the more efficient automatic transmission, mileage improves to a very impressive 24.8 mpg. Cool on the new model: dynamic engine mounts. First seen on the new GT3, these are filled with a magnetorheological fluid that can be adjusted for comfort or sport, depending on how the car is being driven.

Moreover, the new 2010 Turbo will be available with Porsche Torque Vectoring, an option that complements the standard traction and stability control systems. PTV’s mechanical limited-slip center differential actively distributes power fore and aft to greatly improve the car’s ability to exit corners with lots of throttle.

It’s a substantial update the keep Porsche, well, Porsche.

Buy for $132,800 from Porsche
