I was listening to a podcast and the guest mentioned that the newest model 911 Turbo builds boost under no load (one of the reasons it has less than a 3 second 0-60 time).

I was wondering if anyone had any insight into how they accomplished that. Searches for Porsche and turbo bring up to many results to sift through w/in a reasonable time.

I would assume it has something to do with the variable turbine geometry that Porsche introduced in the 997 turbo:

What's that artwork supposed to be? Some sort of lumpy turbo torque curve? :)

LOL it was supposed to be a thumbs up. Looked better at the site I copied it from. TMF seems to roll several other ASCII codes into one.
