A top prize for the Porsche 911 Turbo engine: for the “Best Performance Engine Award” of the British trade magazine Engine Technology International, the Turbo was voted Engine of the Year for 2008.

The publication has been honoring outstanding engine qualities for ten years with this award. In the unlimited cubic capacity class, the 3.6-liter boxer engine with 480 hp (530 hp in the GT2 version) outdistanced BMW and Ferrari engines. The decision came from an international jury of 65 trade journalists, who evaluated the engines according to such categories as output, fuel consumption, road performance, and comfort.

The expert jury also assessed the use of trendsetting technologies. In the 911 Turbo, Porsche is for the first time using a variable turbine geometry (VTG) turbocharger, which permits the exhaust gases to be regulated in the entire engine speed range, and the flow to be optimally directed at the turbine vanes. This improves the flexibility and the acceleration, particularly at low engine speeds.
