German publication AutoBild is reporting that the upcoming 2014 Porsche 911 Turbo, already set to be a technical tour de force, will offer all-wheel steering to go with standard all-wheel drive. Porsche hopes to increase the outright handling ability of the 991 Turbo via four-wheel steering, though no mention is made as to how the system will operate.

The new steering system is likely to join higher levels of power and performance, for an altogether more competent super 911 from the sports car company. We've already reported on rumors that the new Turbo could be outputting something like 550 horsepower from its force-fed 3.8-liter boxer six. That engine will supposedly be fitted with three turbochargers, too. Expect acceleration from 0 to 62 miles per hour to happen in close to 3.3 seconds, and for the top speed to touch 196 mph.

It'll be a year or so before Porsche debuts its new Turbo, with the first cars expected to make an appearance next spring as 2014 models.
