1996 Porsche 911 Turbo

For 1996, the horizontally opposed, overhead cam six-cylinder engine received a boost in horsepower to 282 BHP. Three new models were also added to the lineup. Body styles included a 2+2 coupe and a cabriolet. The Targa nameplate returned with a system different than the previous Targa models. Instead of the roof being removed, glass panels slid back behind an enlarged rear window.

The Carrera 4S models had the Turbo's wide wheel flares, but did not have the Turbo's spoiler. The twin-turbocharged six had the same engine as the base 911 but with the twin turbochargers engaged, horsepower was rated at 400 BHP. The power was sent to all four wheels giving the car a 0-60 mph time of just 3.7 seconds.
