The last time we saw Porsche’s latest-generation 911 Turbo Cabriolet undergoing tests was back in May as the car was running laps around the Nurburgring Nordschleife.
This time around, its retractable soft-top is nowhere to be found as the driver probably felt like catching some UVs, or he may have been testing out the system in one way or another. Either way, it’s a good look for the new 911.
Otherwise, this looks just like most other 911 (992) prototypes out there, some of which have already dropped just about all of their camouflage. It seems the Turbo Cabriolet version is lagging behind in that department.
As for visible features, they include the round dual exhaust tips, wider fenders, fixed and active rear wing as well as some absolutely gigantic brake discs.
Despite this prototype’s dashboard being covered up, we know that the new 911 has a simple yet sporty dash, with a pair of central air vents placed underneath the widescreen infotainment display.
Performance will be amazing
By utilizing the MMB platform, Porsche gave the new 911 (992) a wider track, which should improve stability at high speed. Speaking of which, power will reportedly come from a twin-turbo six-cylinder engine, feeding all four of the Turbo’s wheels roughly 600 HP. Meanwhile the Turbo S version should put down even more, between 630 to 650 HP possibly.
Since the current 911 Turbo Cabrio (540 horses) can already accelerate to 100 km/h (62 mph) in just 3.1 seconds, it’s very likely that the next-gen model will manage a sub 3-second time.
Expect Porsche to launch the all-new 911 Turbo Cabriolet sometime next year as a 2020 model.
