The 2010 Porsche 911 Turbo, as usual, improves on the previous model year in a number of different ways.

Firstly, the old 3.6 litre engine has been swapped for a 3.8 litre unit. This is the first entirely new engine in the 35-year-history of the 911 Turbo, and it comes with features such as Direct Fuel Injection and Porsche's exclusive turbocharger with variable turbine geometry on a gasoline power unit. This powerplant develops 500 horsepower, and offers a 0-60 mph time of just 3.6 seconds. Top speed is 194 mph. However perhaps the most impressive aspect of the new engine is the reduction in CO2 emissions by up to 18 percent.

As an option, this new 3.8 six-cylinder may be combined for the first time with Porsche's seven-speed PDK Doppelkupplungsgetriebe (Double-Clutch Gearbox).

Models equipped with the PDK transmission are also available with a new, optional three-spoke steering wheel with gearshift paddles as an alternative to the standard steering wheel with its shift buttons - a feature the previous model was roundly criticized for. The right paddle is for shifting up, the left paddle for shifting down. In conjunction with the optional Sport Chrono Package Turbo both the gearshift paddle and the PDK steering wheel with its shift buttons come with integrated displays for Launch Control and the Sport/Sport Plus mode, which are designed differently on the two steering wheels.

As far as visual changes go the upgrades are almost imperceptible. Chrome headlight surrounds, redesigned foglights and new wheel designs are the only differences.
