Blast-off for new 911 Turbo.

THE iconic Porsche 911 Turbo is back in business, packing a bigger punch than ever before.

Priced from pounds 101,823 for the 911 Turbo Coup and pounds 109,048 for the Cabriolet, it will make its debut at the Frankfurt Motor Show in September - two months before it goes on sale.

With a top speed close on 200mph and 0 to 60mph acceleration time of 3.4 seconds, the Turbo is the seventh-generation 911 supercar and powered by the first new engine in its 35-year history.

Developing 500bhp, the 3.8-litre six cylinder engine has direct fuel injection and twin variable geometry turbos making it as efficient as it is potent.

Porsche claims the new car will average close on 25mpg.

The 911 Turbo will have the option of a seven-speed double clutch gearbox and paddle shifters, as well as launch control for maximum take-off power.
