This is probably our first look on the upcoming 2020 Porsche 992 Turbo, thanks to a leaked image that shows an uncovered examples sitting in what looks like the production line in Porsche’s factory.
The leaked image comes courtesy of Instagram user t_schleicher, prematurely revealing the new 911 flagship. While we always hold our reservations when it comes to leaked images, this one right here appears to be the real deal after some cross-referencing with our more recent spy shots.
Information about the powertrain of the new 911 Turbo is still limited but the new generation is expected to use a revised and more powerful version of the current 3.8-liter flat-six engine. Standard Turbo models could get as much as 600hp to play with, with the Turbo S adding an extra 30hp into the mix. Both of them will get the new eight-speed PDK transmission.
The new generation 911 Turbo comes with its trademark features, including the square quad exhaust tips, a different rear bumper, deeper side skirts and of course an active rear wing that we have already seen it fully deployed on various camouflaged test cars.
The most intriguing part of the 911 Turbo is Porsche’s promise of electrification. According to previous reports, officials have hinted that for the electrified versions of the new 911 they will follow a similar strategy with the Panamera. That means that there are going to be two plug-in hybrid versions, with the most powerful one getting the Turbo S E-Hybrid moniker and ridiculous amounts of firepower.
Does this mean that Porsche is going to officially reveal the new 911 Turbo at the Geneva Motor Show? Let’s wait and see.
