Some videos of the just-revealed 2016 Porsche 911 have surfaced on YouTube showing an example of the Carrera S starting up and revving through its twin, centrally-mounted exhausts.

Click play below to take a listen. To remind you, you’re hearing a 3.0-litre twin-turbo flat-six engine that produces 272kW and 450Nm in the standard Carrera, and 309kW/500Nm in the Carrera S (featured).
