Porsche will reportedly tack a third turbocharger onto its new 911 Turbo, replacing the twin-turbo arrangement of the current model.

BMW recently made headlines when it debuted a similar system for its new triple-turbo diesel engine, powering the brand's new M Performance diesel models.

According to Britain's Autocar magazine, the new system will utilise the current model's existing 3.8 litre flat-six, with the extra turbo placed closer to the engine for better low-end response.

Along with delivering more linear acceleration, the additional tubocharger and revisions to the engine will reportedly boost output beyond 390kW - compared to 368kW for the current model.

The new system will likely also lead to improved fuel consumption figures, helped by Porsche's new seven-speed manual transmission.
