Look at that Butt: The Next-Gen Porsche 911 Looks Better from Behind
Those taillights are extremely thinby Ciprian Florea, on
The next-generation Porsche 911, called the 992, has been caught testing numerous times in recent months. The sports car has lost most of the camo on the way, but some areas are still hidden from sight. But the new 911 is slowly revealing itself, and our paparazzi just spotted a car with no camo on its rear end.
The light units are significantly slimmer, with what appear to be turn signals occupying the entire lower area and the sides
Unlike previous prototypes, which were black, this coupe is finished in bright yellow, which makes most of the details stand out even more. The first thing that catches the eye is the new taillights design. The light units are significantly slimmer, with what appear to be turn signals occupying the entire lower area and the sides. Between them, there’s an even thinner red stripe that includes "Porsche" lettering.
We’ve seen this layout on the latest Panamera, but Porsche took things further by making the taillights much slimmer. Of course, we’ve seen these lights in the past, but this is the first time that they aren’t obstructed by camo in any way. The photo also gives us a better look at the diffuser. Unlike the outgoing model, the element is now painted black and fully integrated into the bumper, with a body-colored stripe to the bottom.
This is a brand-new configuration for the 911 and a big improvement over the squared-off pipes we've seen on previous prototypes
It also has a pair of real vents at the corners and a slightly more protruding area in the center. The latter is flanked by a pair of round exhaust pipes on each side. This is a brand-new configuration for the 911 and a big improvement over the squared-off pipes we’ve seen on previous prototypes. The tips are round on the production model and finished in black, which makes them hard to spot in certain lighting conditions. It’s pretty cool, although some might not appreciate the subdued look.
Unfortunately, the photo doesn’t reveal much else, but you can check out the spy shots in our speculative review for more details. Stay tuned for updates on this car.
