A few weeks ago we brought you images of the next generation, Porsche 911, dubbed 992. Now we have a video to share. Original story below and new video at the bottom of the post.
Porsche 992 spotted testing almost completely undisguised.
These Porsche 992 development cars were spotted in public without any camouflage. The car spotted here was just part of a larger fleet that included other colours options as well.
Looking at the rear the 911 seems to borrow styling cues from recently launched models, the Panamera and Cayenne. The rear haunches are particularly strong while some claim that the 992 takes many cues from the 993 series of 911, such as the steeply raked front windscreen.
An eastern debut
With the 991 series completing its lifecycle, with the launch of the most extreme variant, the GT2 RS making its debut late last year, rumour has been rife about the next-generation 911. Some speculated that we will see the model at the upcoming Paris Motor Show, but that now seems unlikely.
It is no secret that Porsche’s market share in China has been growing so there is a possibility that the new model could make its debut at a major motor show in the east. A more likely debut event is the LA Motor Show, which takes place in November.
Base models first
As usual, we’ll see a Carrera version debut first. Power in this model will be derived from the same family of 3,0-litre, turbocharged flat-six motors as used in the 991.2 family.
The opening salvo should offer 300 kW with 550 N.m of torque. Transmission options will be PDK (twin-clutch) or manual, both with seven speeds.
