Spied: 2014 Porsche 911 Turbo

We've already snapped the all-new Porsche 911 – indeed, we've ridden in it - but now our spies have caught the full-fat Turbo model pounding around Germany's Nurburgring circuit.

There's a deeper bumper with larger air intakes at the front, but it's at the rear where the Turbo marks itself out: large twin exhausts integrated within a stocky bumper and a sizeable spoiler ensure there's no mistaking it from lesser Carrera variants.

In performance terms, the Turbo has always been the pinnacle of the 911 range – and this is set to continue with the 991 generation. The current model pushes out 493bhp from its 3.6-litre six-cylinder engine and the new car's 3.8-litre powerplant will ramp that figure up to somewhere around 550bhp. When you think that the original 1974 turbocharged 911 developed 258bhp, you begin to grasp some idea of how far the car has come.

Sales of the new Porsche 911 Turbo will start in 2013, and we'd expect entry-level models to cost around £120,000. For more details click here.
