A better look at the upcoming sports car

The 992-generation Porsche 911 has yet to go public, but the German sports car is no longer a mystery as far as exterior design goes. Spotted numerous times without camo, the upcoming 911 just made a new appearance on public roads. And apart from thin strips of tape on the bumpers and taillights, the coupe is as clean as it goes.

Needless to say, the 992 911 is ready to go into production and to take its place on auto show floors. Obviously, the 911 remains familiar, but sports a few important upgrades. We can see a new front hood, upgraded headlamps, and new grilles on each side of the front bumper.

It also has wider rear fenders and really slim taillights that are based on the Panamera’s. Like 911 models from the 1990s, they’re linked by a red stripe with "Porsche" lettering.

The new split grille of the engine hood pays tribute to the original 911.

Another big change is the retractable spoiler, now fully integrated into the deck lid. The vents in the bumper are bigger than ever, while the exhaust pipes sit closer to each other, flaking the license plate recess.

The new 911 should get its juice from the recently introduced twin-turbo, 3.0-liter six-cylinder engine.

Yes, the next-gen 911 will no longer have naturally aspirated engines, at least not outside the GT3 lineup.

As usual, a bigger, more powerful pair of engines will motivate the Turbo and Turbo S versions. A hybrid drivetrain is also in the works, but nothing much is known about it.
