2015 Porsche 911

Posted on by  

A few days ago, we brought you the first spy shots of the revised Porsche 911 Convertible and today, our spy photographers also managed to catch the standard 911 out playing in the snow.

Just like with the convertible model, the coupe version also wears little camouflage because changes on the exterior will be minimal. The revised 911 Carrera will be offered with a new front bumper with different air intakes and DRLs, and a new rear bumper with new taillights.

Just like on the convertible version, the rear bumper will feature additional air outlets on the sides, which is a clear indication that Porsche will use a new turbocharged engine under its hood. This smaller turbocharged, six-cylinder engine with will help Porsche to lower the CO2 emissions and improve fuel consumption of the 911.

Expect the revised 911 Coupe to be unveiled in late 2014 or early 2015.
