2013 Porsche 911 Turbo will have Tri-Turbo system


In a recent patent application submitted by Porsche, it shows that the next 911 turbo will have a three-turbo set up. The 3.8L flat-six will have a smaller turbo close to the engine to eliminate boost lag at low speeds and provide more off-the-line power. The other twin turbos appear to be in the same location as previous handling hard pulls and top-end power. The addition of the third turbo will also reducing emissions and improve fuel economy.

We won't see anything official for awhile since the new 911 turbo is about a year away from its debut. It is rumored to have around 550 horsepower for the base model.

Also, we can expect the tri-turbo system in the next GT2 and GT2RS.
