Yo Dawg, We Heard You Like Turbos...

The new Porsche 911 Turbo and Turbo S add a dose of super high performance to the 2016 Detroit Auto Show, with both coupe and convertible models on display.

Porsche has dropped the new 911 Turbo and Turbo S, pushing power up by 20 ponies a piece and slashing bits and pieces from the 0-60 times for both models.

Harry Metcalfe's Porsche 993 looks like a GT2 and drives like a GT2, but it's actually an all-wheel-drive 911 Turbo that's undergone extensive modifications. Check it out in the latest episode on Harry's Garage.

The 1979 Porsche 930 in the latest video from Petrolicious is anything but subtle thanks to its tuned engine and Martini decals.

Porsche has been caught testing the refreshed 911 Turbo at the Nürburgring with no camouflage at all. You might need to look close to notice the changes, though.

This Porsche 930 Turbo is the last new car that Steve McQueen ever custom ordered, and Mecum Auctions has it coming up for sale in Monterey next month.

Harry Metcalfe is rounding out his collection of '80s European supercars with an '89 Porsche 911 Turbo, and he explains in his new video why these are a wonderful challenge to drive.

Has the Porsche 911 Turbo met its match with the new Mercedes-Benz AMG GT? Evo attempts to answer that question with the latest installment of "Deadly Rivals."

Porsche expert Magnus Walker just got his tattooed hands on an original 1975 Porsche 930 Turbo, and juxtaposes it against its 911 descendant 40 years later in this latest video from eGarage.

Currently, Porsche builds two turbocharged 911s – the Turbo and the Turbo S (and their cabriolet counterparts). The rest of the 911 range, meanwhile, is motivated by either 3.4- or 3.8-liter flat-sixes of varying outputs. This clear separation could be set to change in the very near future, though, as rumors continue to swirl that Porsche's rear-engined range could switch exclusively to turbocharged power.

We love Motor Trend's annual World's Greatest Drag Race video. Now back for its fourth appearance, the idea of lining some of the world's fastest cars up for a ten-wide, straight-line, full-throttle run is, well... it's pretty freaking badass.

The Porsche 911 Turbo has a legacy of being a tough car to drive. With a ton of power set right over the rear wheels, its reputation is to lose control as soon as the driver stops concentrating. However, this isn't quite so true anymore. The modern ones are tamed through technology with things like hydraulically controlled engine mounts, not to mention all-wheel drive. In its latest video, Autocar tries to decide whether 25 years of progress really makes the turbo a better vehicle.

There is a long-running argument among performance car fans: power vs. weight. In one corner you get cars generally with small engines making modest numbers but able to corner like they are telepathic, and in the other there are big thumping mills that are rocketships in a straight line but lumber in the turns. Autocar takes an interesting look this continuum in a recent video pitting a 552-hp Porsche 911 Turbo S against a 185-hp Formula 4 racecar. It hopes to find whether the Porsche's huge pow

Porsche has really hit on a winning formula with its series of videos going inside its vault. So far, we've seen the V8 911 prototype, mid-engine test mule and aerodynamic prototype. The company is sticking with the 911 theme in the latest entry, but this time it's an actual production car – the very first 911 Turbo ever made.

Porsche is one of the most profitable automakers in the business.
