In 2005 the new Porsche 911 Turbo (997) (997TT) was released with an additional 60hp over the previous standard 996 Turbo and a new 997 wide body. The new 997 Turbo’s engine was basically the same 3.6 liter fro the 996 model, but with the addition of Variable Turbine Geometry (VTG) which regulated the amount of air that the Turbos received thereby improving there efficiency so much that their was no need for a waste gate. The new body of the 997 Turbo was very well received by the enthusiast community just as the non-turbo model received. Another innovation came from the available Triptronic automatic transmission, which actually was capable of faster 0-60 speeds then the manual transmission.
