The new 911 Turbo gets the first all-new motor in an amazing 35 years and it's a screamer, a direct-injected, 3.8 liter flat six with twin variable geometry turbochargers building 500 HP. In addition to the manual transmission, it'll also get the option of a double clutch paddle-shift automatic, which will help to scoot the car to a 0-62 MPH time of 3.4 seconds and a 194 MPH top speed. US pricing hasn't been announced yet, but it should be well on the other side of $100k.
