New, Wider Porsche 911 Turbo Hits the ‘Ring

1

The next-gen Porsche 911 Turbo is looking nearly production-ready, with the German automaker testing all its changes on the Nurburgring.

Spy photographers have caught the new Porsche 911 Turbo testing numerous times in the past, and with very little camouflage on its body, we know what to expect once it debuts. The front end of the new 911 Turbo won’t receive any significant changes, though it does receive a straighter front skirt, while the front wings are slightly larger and will clasp around the headlights. Expect larger air intakes in the front bumper, along with an extendable front lip spoiler, and daytime running lights.

As we’ve noted in the past, the next-generation 911 Turbo will grow wider, and it’s even more evident in the latest set of photos with the sports car on the track. Arguably the most significant change to the next-gen 911 can be seen in the rear, with the tail lights spanning the entire rear end, just like the Panamera.

Inside, new tech will make its way to the cabin, with a possible version of Audi’s digital Virtual Cockpit housed in the dash. Rumor has it the range-topping Turbo S could break the 600-horsepower barrier, which means the 911 Turbo S could go zero-to-60 in around 2.5 seconds.

More details on the next-gen 911 should surface in the near future, as the car gets ready for its debut sometime this year before it heads to dealerships in 2019.
