The very first details on the upcoming Porsche 911 Turbo are emerging and they are revealing the fact that the model will only receive the PDK version.

The German based automaker Porsche is planning to drop the manual transmission option for the next generation of the 911 Turbo and, according to the guys at Road & Track, the model will receive only the PDK variant. The upcoming Porsche 911 Turbo is expected to be 13 percent more fuel efficient than its predecessor and the model will also receive the stop/start technology, along with carbon ceramic brakes, which are optional, a rear steering system, an active aerodynamic front spoiler and more.

The next generation of the Porsche 911 Turbo will get 520 HP (387 kW) and 648 Nm of torque (479 lb-ft), while the Turbo S version should pack an impressive 560 HP (418 kW) and 699 Nm of torque (516 lb-ft). Both units will be mated to the PDK transmission. The Porsche 911 Turbo is expected to accelerate from 0 to 60 mph (96 km/h) in approximately 3 seconds. The 911 Turbo will get a body which is 1.1 inches wider than the one of the 911 Carrera 4 and 911 Carrera 4S.
