Porsche is looking to be the first automaker to launch a Porsche 917 in Japan with a turbocharged version of the 911 Carra 4 Turbo.

The 917 Carrera GT was first revealed back in March, and now, Porsche is hoping to give the 917 a run for its money with the turbocharged car.

According to German publication Autoblog, the car will be offered with a six-speed manual transmission, and will be priced at 9,995 yen (about US$1,764).

Porsche is aiming to make the 918 Carrera 3 Turbo available in Japan later this year, and that will be the Turbo version of its flagship 911 Carras.

That car will start at 989,995, but it’ll be only available in limited numbers in Japan, as Porsche will sell a limited number of 918 Turbo models with the 8.5-liter four-cylinder engine.

The Porsche 918 will be available starting in 2019.
