"Oof". That moment when you catch your breath is the hallmark of a 911 Turbo. When the boost pressure builds up and forces the air into the six combustion chambers, the world seems to stand still for a moment. That was the case with the first 911 Turbo from 1974 – and it is still the case today. There are no exceptions. Not even with the Porsche 996 Turbo, which was built from 2000 to 2006. With the 996, Porsche put everything on one card: The fifth generation of the sports car classic was radically new – and for the first time relied on water cooling instead of the previously staunchly defended air cooling. That's why the 996 had to prove itself from the start in order to convince even skeptics. Porsche finally got rid of any remaining doubts with the turbo: 420 hp from a displacement of 3.6 liters with double turbocharging caused a stir at the time. With the factory performance increase (WLS), the engine even made 450 hp.

The engine is based on the design of the legendary Hans Mezger, who played a key role in the design of the first 911 Turbo. Even today, people still talk about the "Mezger engine", which was used in the turbo and GT models up to the 997 model series. The engine is characterized by its two-piece aluminum crankcase. In contrast to other constructions, this allows a perfect oil supply even with high lateral acceleration and is therefore particularly well suited for use on the race track. In addition, the engine is extremely durable and reliable – which it proved in a slightly modified form with a double victory in the 1998 24 Hours of Le Mans. The 996 Turbo still impresses today: the biturbo sends 560 Nm of torque to all four wheels. That still feels brawny even in a world of high-torque diesels and powerful e-cars. Accompanied by the typical whooshing sound that characterizes a charged 911. So the 911 Turbo of the 996 generation has what it takes to become a classic. It is an important model in the company's history, the technology has written racing history and the Turbo, with a total of around 22,000 vehicles produced, is significantly rarer than the Carrera models, of which more than 150,000 were produced.
