Chrome headlight surrounds, restyled foglights and new wheel designs mark the only exterior upgrades, but there’s more to this facelift than meets the eye.
Under the bonnet, or wedged in the boot in the 911’s case, is an all-new 3.8-litre direct-injection, twin-turbo flat-six, delivering a faintly ridiculous 500bhp – only the second road-going 911 to ever breach the 500bhp barrier after the current 530bhp GT2.
That additional 20bhp gives the performance figures a healthy boost. At 3.7 seconds from 0-60mph it’s three tenths quicker than the current Turbo, and tops out 1mph higher, at 194mph.
