The all-new Porsche 911 is almost upon us. It’s expected to make its debut before the end of the year, but just in case you’re feeling impatient, test mules keep getting spotted at the Nurburgring wearing less and less camouflage.
This particular ‘992’ is entirely undisguised and handily daubed in a nice, bright colour, giving us our best look yet at the car. And it should come as no surprise that it doesn’t really look ‘all-new’ from the outside.
It’s another evolutionary styling approach, which you can hardly blame Porsche for - 911 buyers want something that’s, you know, 911-shaped. Besides, it does look pretty awesome with that new and rather giant active rear spoiler.
The core Carrera models will use an evolution of the 3.0-litre twin-turbo flat-six found in the current car, and for the first time, there’ll be the option of a hybrid 911. Two, in fact.
As before there’ll be a ridiculously fast ‘Turbo’ model, and eventually a track-focused 992 GT3. It’s currently unclear if the latter will stick with an N/A engine or sprout a pair of turbochargers - there have been conflicting rumours on that front.
What do you think of the 992?
