And now about the size.

The power unit was a function of variable valve timing and direct injection technology.
As mentioned above, this engine produces around 430 horsepower at 7,500 rev / min and about 440 Newton meters of maximum torque at 5750 rev / min.
This engine is capable of working in tandem with mechanical 7-band transmission and a robotic 7-speed gearbox the PDK, which has a manual gear shift and double clutch.
With the “mechanics” new 2018-2019 Porsche 911 Targa 4 GTS accelerates from zero to 100 km / h in about 4.7 seconds, while top speed German car reaches 303 kilometers per hour.
