Porsche is intensely working on its upcoming 911 facelift, a statement backed by the numerous spy shots we’ve received in August 2014. We’ve already seen the regular Convertible model and the more exotic Targa, but now it’s time to have a look at the more powerful 911 Turbo. Much like its siblings, the Turbo also made a big step towards the assembly line, being spotted by our paparazzi in pre-production form. No longer just a mule, the 2016 Porsche 911 Turbo is finally showcasing its updated bodywork.

Naturally, it’s yet another case of "nothing to see here, move along." Of course, I’m overreacting, there is something to see, but, as history has taught us, 911s don’t change that much visually. That being said, our best look yet at the new 911 Turbo brings us what we’ve already seen on the regular 911, plus the turbo intakes, a rear spoiler and a different rear apron with quad exhaust tips. Familiar revisions include updated bumpers, reshaped door handles, a new engine cover, new LED taillights, and new parking lights, all seen on previous 911 test vehicles.

As with the rest of the lineup, the 911 Turbo will also carry the 992 denomination, with an official introduction to take place by the end of 2014.

Why It Matters

The Germans are obviously in a hurry to introduce the facelifted 911. Developed has advanced so quickly, that we can have a glimpse at the pre-production car only months from seeing the first test mules. With the 911 Convertible, 911 Turbo and 911 Turbo already fitted with their new body panels, we’re pretty much set to welcome Porsche’s updated sports car.
