Introduced in 2006, the 997-generation Porsche 911 Turbo was a giant leap forward for the iconic "everyday" supercar. Powered by a twin-turbocharged flat six derived from the 911 GT1 race engine, it employed variable turbine geometry to generate a whopping 480 horsepower. This power coupled with all-wheel-drive and a curb weight 41 pounds lighter than the preceding 996 Turbo meant that the 997 could achieve 60 miles per hour from a standing start in only 3.7 seconds...incredibly quick for its era. The crushingly fast Porsche 997 Turbo is now available as a highly detailed 1:43-scale diecast model car by Maxichamps. Blending accurate detail and fine value, it features authentically sculpted aerodynamic trim and road wheels, as well as a realistic interior.
