It may look like the old Porsche 911 Turbo, but this newest version of the 997 Turbo has been upgraded with the Carrera's 3.8-liter direct-injection mill. Can this old dog learn a new trick?
Porsche isn't stupid. They may not be great at corporate takeovers, but they've heard the moans of weekend Nurburgringers being overtaken in their 911 Turbos by dentists in Lambos and Nissan GT-Rs. They know the 3.6-liter twin-turbo in the outgoing Turbo is now old enough to vote and the thrill of driving a Porsche has been slowly watered down.
