The 911 (996) Turbo was first introduced in 2000. The new 911 Turbo draws its enormous power from a flat-six, water-cooled, 3600cc engine  boosted by twin turbochargers. This powerful engine could develop a maximum power of 309 kW (420 bhp) at 6000 rpm. The maximum torque of 560 Nm or 413 lb-ft comes from 2700 rpm and remains to 4600 rpm.

Three large, dark-covered air scoops at the front of the car bear testimony to these changes in body design, giving the 911 Turbo a striking, absolutely unique face. The side sections at the rear have also been restyled, narrow-cut air intake ducts for the intercoolers characterizing the special look of the flared rear wheel arches. Also at the rear the all-new retracting wing as well as the newly designed rear-end cover with outlet openings for the turbocharger air boost accentuate the extremely powerful but also elegant look of Porsche's new top model.

The new 911 Turbo comes with a significantly higher level of standard equipment compared to 996 Carrera. Including, inter alia, metallic paintwork, automatic air conditioning, a cassette radio complete with sound package, a wide range of leather upholstery, electrically adjustable seats with seat memory on the driver's side, and the three-spoke sports steering wheel with Porsche's logo in color and an on-board computer and electrically operated locks on the luggage and engine compartments. Production was originally determined to be 2500 units, but due to the increased demand it has been increased to 4000 units.
