Porsche's got a refreshed 911 making its way to dealers next spring and as you would expect the company made a nip and tuck here and there, but the real story is of course, under the hood. For the 2017 model year the Carrera and Carrera S will ditch the naturally aspirated engines and go turbo with twin-turbocharged flat-sixes producing even more horsepower and is even more efficient. 

The standard 911 Carrera will deliver 370 hp from its 3.0L engine and the "S" model will produce 420 hp from that same engine. As for speed, the standard Carrera will get from 0-60 in 4.0 seconds with the PDK and Sport Chrono package while the S will hit a 0-60 time of 3.7 seconds with the same package. 

The car also gets a new version of their Porsche Active Suspension Management that arrives alongside a chassis a ride height that's lowered by 10mm, optional rear-axle steering on the Carrera S, and a new Porsche Communication Management System that features gesture controls, Google Earth and Streetview integration, and Apple CarPlay.

$89,400-$115,700, Porsche
