The ball is officially rolling out of control towards the Frankfurt Motor Show and while we are eagerly waiting the grand reveal of the Porsche 911/991, our spy photographers are busy snapping even more shots of the much-anticipated sports car. Our newest spy images reveal what looks to be a pre-production vehicle with its white tape transporter protection covering it like a swaddle blanket covers a newborn.

The Porsche 911/991 Coupe will take its design cues from the Panamera and the 918 Spyder concept, featuring larger front wing pontoons, all-LED headlights, slightly deeper side sills, door-mounted wing mirrors, and a more significantly sculpted rear end. Power for Porsche’s latest baby will come from a 3.4L 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. The Carrera S, on the other hand, will get a 3.8-liter flat-six with direct injection engine that delivers a total of 400 HP at 7000 rpm. Thanks to brake regeneration and stop start systems, the new Porsche will get a reduction in fuel consumption of 12%-15%.

As far as when the Porsche 911/991 is going up for sale, rumors have begun circulating that Porsche is just about ready to open up the order books as early as this month with vehicle deliveries scheduled in March - April 2012. The pre-production models in these images may not be ready to be parked outside your personal garage, but they may just be part of the press fleet that will be set up for journalists to drive the 911/991 after the Frankfurt Motor Show in September. We can only hope.

Being the most awaited sports car for the Frankfurt Motor Show is a tough thing. A lot expectations are on the car not noticing that it is not as perfect as it looks. Having a large front wing is not advisable for a sports car.
