Spied! Next-Gen Porsche 911 Rides Again

Squint to see the evolutionary changes

Alex Nishimoto
Mar 14, 2017

The next Porsche 911 has been spotted testing yet again, and this time it was caught with its active rear spoiler down. The classic 911 shape is retained, but under the camo are likely a few significant changes.

The last time we saw it, the test mule had its active wing up. Just like the Porsche Panamera, the next 911's retractable spoiler will span the full width of the car. In these spy shots, however, the spoiler rests flush with the bodywork to grant us an interrupted view of the 911's iconic profile. It's so similar to the current model that you'll be hard pressed to point out what's different. But there's some clever camouflaging going on here. Note the fitment of the rear quarter windows and how the third brake light is mounted outside the cabin, somewhat reminiscent of the "periscope" third brake light found on G series models equipped with a factory spoiler. The fitment of the rear bumper around the taillights is also a little off. These are all clues that this 911 is not what it seems.

The next-gen 911, internally codenamed 992, will likely continue to offer the range of turbocharged engines introduced with the 991.2. The new twin-turbo 3.0-liter flat-six currently makes between 365-450 hp depending on trim. There have also been rumors of a hybrid powertrain in development for the 992. The new 911 could debut next year as a 2019 or 2020 model.
