2019 Porsche 911 Spy Shots Highlight Its Mission E-Inspired Bottom

We bring you more shots of the next 911 as Porsche continues the development of the new generation of what’s considered the default sports car.

These shots give us a much clearer look on the next Porsche 911, showing a test car with what is considered the actual production body.

The upcoming Porsche is also going to be based on a new platform which allows for wider tracks and more importantly ensures the compatibility of the 911 with a hybrid powertrain.

Although Porsche keeps most of the details hidden, it’s almost certain that the new 911 will be offered with the option of a plug-in hybrid powertrain as well as an updated range of the existing turbocharged flat-sixes.

As for the design, the Porsche 911 is truly the last car on the planet you should expect to change its looks; the front end now gets a slightly longer bonnet while the rear gets a treatment very similar to that seen on the Mission E concept.

That includes a LED strip running across the width of the car and a retractable spoiler that sits flush with the body lines when not deployed. Another feature that appears to sit flush with the body is the new door handles.

Porsche is expected to launch the new 911 in 2019, with the next-gen Boxster and Cayman models to follow in 2020.

    you’ve got to give porsche credit they managed to take over one of the largest automotive companies in the world VW, they did all that while having only 3 cars in their lineup and selling a car that kept the same design for the past 50 years. its like mercedes only selling G wagons and the S class and then going on and buying toyota that would be unthinkable

      Porsche is the largest Volkswagen shareholder, but Volkswagen owns more than 50% of Porsche, that’s why Porsche belongs to the Volkswagen group.

    • Felix

      I believe they own 52% so not quite whole ownership but they its enough to control it yea!

  • Zandit75

    Damn, this is going to upset the purists!

  • Elmediterraneo

    The 2 exhaust models are apparently Carrera models and the 4 pipes ones are the Turbo.
    I love that taillight, that makes the 911 even closer to the Panamera in terms of design and the interior will be high-class.
    So what new engine for the Turbo models ?

    • Bob

      But a 911 has been spied with air intakes that’s been presumed to be the 911 Turbo, it only had 2 exhaust pipes. Maybe it’s a GTS type version? No idea on what else it might be considering the Turbos are the only current 911s with 4 exhaust pipes, including the GT2 RS and GT3.

      My only other thought is that Porsche was thinking early in development of having four exhaust pipes for the whole range but have since decided against it.

    I’m sorry but I think that Porsche is cutting corners when they are putting different type wheels front and back. I wouldn’t buy a car like that.

      LOL

    They need to have a Cylon eye ball option thing with that rear led tail light. oh and keep the top brake light, that’s awesome:)

  • Tumbi Mtika

    With the padding, the rear lights look straight outta Molsheim.

  • Six Thousand Times

    Interesting – not sure if good.

  • Astonman

    Love the rear end. Also like how wide there rear is.

  • GrandTouringNation

    I hope that rear brake light doesn’t make the final cut.

    • Finkployd

      You mean the third one in the middle? Yea I don’t think so

      • GrandTouringNation

        That’s the one. It’s not exactly a clean look.

  • appleimmune

    hideous back end to that car..

    • Knotmyrealname

      It’s mostly cladding below the tail lights. You won’t see the final shape for a while yet.

    Porsche 911 is always sexy. Always.
