The new generation Porsche 911 (992) will debut officially at the 2018 LA Auto Show, on November 27. Teased time and again, now it has appeared on the Internet on the first official photos.
We can see a full-width taillight bar that is slimmer and makes the car look wider. The new-gen model is not a big surprise in terms of exterior design. It retains characteristic Porsche’s round headlamps, iconic side profile, muscular rear hips.
Silver and blue cars on the pictures are the Carrera S models. We expect the output of 444 hp (vs previous 414 hp) and 530 Nm of torque (vs 500 Nm in the outgoing car) from upgraded turbo flat-six engines, as well as an eight-speed PDK (Porsche Doppelkupplung) dual-clutch automatic transmission. A seven-speed manual gearbox should remain as well.
The rear end’s style reminds of the Panamera and Cayenne. The 2020 Porsche 911 (992) will feature matrix LED headlights. The entry-level car will likely get a 3.0-liter twin-turbo H6 motor that delivers 380 hp.
The information of the upcoming model is still scarce. Its curb weight is one of unknowns. The lightest today is the Carrera T with 1,500 kg (3,307 pounds). The dimensions should not change much over the current 911.
Inside there will be a more refined dashboard and a new instrument cluster with more digital gauges.
The current 911 is priced at $105,100 in the USA.
