Power is entrusted to the 550 horsepower (405 kW) 3.7-liter six-cylinder twin-turbo boxer engine. It comes with a seven-speed manual gearbox gears that makes the 911, with this type of gearbox, most powerful available today.

The gearbox has a “toe heel” function which compensates for the difference in engine rpm when downshifting. This provides a quick and short increase in revs before engaging the lowest gear. The standard sports exhaust system is specially adapted for an even more appealing sound experience.

The suspension, based on those of the 911 Turbo and 911 GTS models, satisfies the high performance that this model is able to offer.

The PASM is combined with the sports suspension as standard, which lowers the ground clearance by 10 millimeters.
