Video: The new Porsche 911 Carrera’s turbocharged engine

Porsche’s full electric Mission E concept car may have stolen many headlines during the opening days of the 2015 IAA in Frankfurt but, it shouldn’t be forgotten that the bi-annual motor show also played host to the unveiling of the new 2016 Porsche 911 Carrera, complete with a turbocharged flat six.

While the controversial switch away from natural aspiration hasn’t got us worried, we know some of you are less convinced by a forced induction future for the Porsche 911.

Therefore, this video from Porsche is definitely recommended viewing. Yes, there’s some silly music, but there are fleeting moments of raw engine sound and some interesting facts that hopefully will help convince you this is truly the way forward (pardon the pun).

    If they can make a turbo charged engine sound this good why have they always made the 911 Turbo sound like a hair dryer? Only disappointment of my 911 Turbo was the sound, (I fitted a Kline exhaust which made it better.) But when it really mattered they created a good sounding car with sports exhaust. So why not do that before? Are they going to offer a sports exhaust on new Turbo models?
