Well they have kept the Turbo and Turbo S as the flagships of the range and the new 991.2 versions have upped the ante yet again.

The Turbo has 397 kW and 660nm (710nm with overboost)
The Turbo S has 427kw and 700nm (750nm with overboost)

By comparison the new Carrera S has 309kw and 500nm so there is a big deficit in power and torque.

I think reviews on the Turbo and Turbo S are due later this month / early feb.

But I agree the naming and positioning is a bit weird now that all models except the GT3 and RS will be turbo.

Yep and torque was 560nm so the new Carrera S is not a million miles away

I was mistaken, here is the data taken from the original Porsche press release on the 996 Turbo

With power characteristics of a far larger engine, the 2001 911 Turbo (six-speed) can accelerate from 0-62 mph (0-100 km/h) in just 4.2 seconds. On the test track, the Porsche 911 Turbo will sprint from a standstill to 100 mph (160 km/h) in only 9.2 seconds and can achieve a top track speed of 189 mph (305 km/h).

When equipped with the optional five-speed Tiptronic S automatic transmission, the 2001 Porsche 911 Turbo offers still-staggering performance: 0-62 mph (0-100 km/h) in 4.9 seconds; 0-100 mph (0-160 km/h) in 10.6 seconds and a top track speed of 185 mph (298 km/h).

It was the launch not the pace of the car once up and going.

Almost 1 second slower 100-160 for the auto.
