With just a few weeks before its official debut at the Frankfurt Motor Show, the next generation Porsche 911 has been caught testing, in both coupe and cabrio versions, with only light camouflage. Even though some details are still being hidden under some tape, its clear that the future 911 has been given some LED daydriving lights and a change in overall size and shape.

The new 911 will feature design elements from both the Panamera and the 918 Spyder concept including larger front wing pontoons which house all-LED headlights, slightly deeper side sills, door-mounted wing mirrors, and a more significantly sculpted rear end.

Under the hood, Porsche has placed a new 3.4 liter direct-injected flat-six engine that delivers a total of 350 HP at 6400 rpm and max torque of 280 lb-ft between 4400 and 6000 rpm. Depending on the model, the sprint from 0 to 60 mph will be made in about 4.5 seconds, while top speed will go up to 188 mph.

Too bad they were caught. People will not be surprised on the upcoming motor show because they already released some details but still the audience will look for other specifications of the car, since there are some tape within the car.

Are they making already a production version for the coupe and Cabrio version? The figure performance of this future vehicle is just equivalent to a typical power output for this car type. I wonder on what will be the competitor of this car? It seems that we need to wait for the further details on the vehicle.

Although they have hide the details behind the camouflage still IMO the styling of the car hasn’t change that much. The deliver power output is not that impressive. I would love to see the rendered version of Panamera Turbo S.
