The German based automaker Porsche will put the 960 into production in 2017 and the company is planning to sell around 3,000 – 4,000 units every year.
When it will become available to its future customers, the new Porsche 960 will get a 3.9 liter flat eight-cylinder engine under its hood, equipped with four turbochargers, with two intercoolers and with a multistage intake manifold, along with a dual stage exhaust system, four adjustable camshafts and some other minor tweaks, which will allow the unit to produce a total output of 650 BHP (485 kW).
The model’s engine will be mated to a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission which will send power to the all-wheel drive system and it will allow the supercar to accelerate from 0 to 60 mph (96 km/h) in approximately 2.5 seconds. The Porsche 960 will ride on a lightweight platform which will use carbon fiber, titanium, magnesium, steel and aluminum and these materials will help the model’s total weight to stay at 3,000 lbs (1,360 kg). The Porsche 960 will enter production in early 2017. Additional details on the “Ferrari-Fighter” (FeFi), as it is codenamed, are limited for the moment, and will be announced close to its debut.
