The new technology will deliver an extra 20 horsepower in the standard Carrera, so expect a similar bump to the GT3's current 415-hp rating. Displacement is expected to remain at 3.6 liters.

The new PDK transmission is essentially Porsche's version of Volkswagen's DSG, but whether it's up to handling the GT3's additional power remains to be seen. With deliveries of the 911 Carrera and Carrera S models scheduled to start ...
