The 996 Turbo debuted at the Frankfurt Auto show in September 1999. It went on sale in the US in summer of 2000 as a 2001 model. The Turbo is powered by a water-cooled twin-turbocharged and intercooled 3.6-litre flat-6 engine derived from the 1998 LeMans winning 911 GT1 race car. The engine produces 313 kW (426 PS; 420 hp) at 6,000 rpm and 415 lb⋅ft (563 N⋅m) of torque.
It featured all-wheel drive and was available with either a 6-speed manual or a 5-speed Tiptronic transmission. It had revised styling and a wider stance than the naturally aspirated 996 Carreras, along with new bi-xenon headlamps and a fixed rear wing. It also came with VarioCam Plus and stability management, and in the US spec an electronically adjustable rear spoiler was included which would rise at a speed of 76 mph (122 km/h) and lower at 36 mph (58 km/h). The bodywork was also revised to allow airflow to 3 radiators up front and to accommodate 18-inch wheels and tyres.
In 2002, the X50 package was offered as an option on the Turbo that included larger K24 turbochargers and intercoolers, a revised ECU and quad-pipe exhaust which raised power output to 331 kW (450 PS; 444 hp). Other features introduced in 2002 were a glove box, center mounted cup-holders, an optional Bose stereo and rain-sensing wipers.
