The Porsche 911 Turbo (997) is the successor to the 996 Turbo and an high-performance all-wheel drive variation of the Porsche 997. It is the world's first car to utilise VGT, which is an abbreviation for variable-geometry turbochargers. In 2009, the 911 Turbo received a facelift.
Need for Speed: CarbonEdit
It is only featured in the EA Downloader version of the game. Xbox 360 players may obtain the car by purchasing the Exotic Car Kit Bundle.
It has a top speed, and is a quicker car in terms of acceleration as well as handling, which is its best trait.
Need for Speed: ProStreetEdit
The Porsche 911 Turbo in Need for Speed: ProStreet appears as a Tier 3 car for $122,000. It is unlocked upon the player winning the Showdown: Autopolis race day.
In comparison with the 997 GT2, which is also ranked as a Tier 3 car, the 911 Turbo has a lower top speed, but it is more stable and has more responsive handling. It has a faster 0-60 mph time, but also has a worse 0-100 mph time than the GT2.
Need for Speed: UndercoverEdit
In Need for Speed: Undercover, the Porsche 911 Turbo appears as a Tier 2. Players can unlock it upon completing the Job event "Rematch" and purchase it for $218,000.
It is capable of reaching a top speed of 225 mph (363 km/h). The 997 Turbo has the second highest top speed, as the Porsche 911 GT3 RS is faster. However, it also has a weak acceleration.
Need for Speed: WorldEdit
The 911 Turbo is the slowest Porsche 911 in the game. It is not as agile as its sister models nor accelerates as quick as them. Its nitrous boost doesn't stand out as well. The 911 Turbo does have a decent acceleration when compared to Class C and Class B cars. With Gromlen race tuned parts, it can reach a top speed of 205 mph (331 km/h).
The major disadvantage of the car is its steering, because of suffering from understeer. Players may find the Nissan GT-R to be more useful in races.
