Porsche has been manufacturing 911s for over 50 years, so a new one is usually not the biggest of deals. The 2017 Porsche looks almost identical to last year’s model, however under the hood they are very different. The 2017 911 has gone turbo. Instead of the traditional naturally-aspirated flat six engine, the new 911 Carrera 4s will feature a twin-turbo flat six.

The new engine will give the vehicle 420 horsepower and 368 pound feet of torque, which is up quite a bit from the previous model. Porsche also claims that the car will get 12% better fuel economy than its predecessor.

The new car will also feature updates to the chassis and suspension. It sits 10 Millimeters lower than the 2016 model and also features optional rear-wheel steering

The new 911 Carrera has a starting MSRP of $111,350, about $5,000 higher than the 2016 version of the same car.
