Porsche 911

Next-generation Porsche 911 caught winter road testing

These are shots of the next-generation Porsche 911 – internally called the 998 – that will replace the current model in 2011. Earlier reports in some media made believe this was the 911 Turbo, but on these pictures you can see that the side air-intakes in front of the rear wheels are fakes – and so is the huge rear wing which hides the shape of the smaller spoiler of the standard 911s. Compared to the current model, the front lights are standing more upright and the side mirrors have moved from the side window corner to the side of the door. Don’t get confused by the rear lights as these are just temporary. The next-generation 911 will feature the same flat-six engine that surely gets a power boost and the new PDK dual-clutch gearbox.
