2020 Porsche 911 Turbo (992) Leaked Straight From The Factory Floor?

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.

    Dear god, that is absolutely beautiful. The proportions are perfect.

  • HaltestelleLuitpolthafen

    These things are going to be running 0-60 in the high to mid 2’s.

  • Andrewthecarguy

    Oh my!
    That thing is SO sexy!!!

  • ErnieB

    I dig it .. I dig it a lot!

  • Ben

    There is just something so sexy about the shape of a 911 that you can’t get away from.

  • jrelon

    Not usually a Porsche guy, but I like that one!

  • Meskley

    I thought i would get bored of the 911 shape at some point but it looks better than ever

  • nastinupe

    These 992’s are making the 991’s look like 996’s lol.

    • Mr. EP9

      I actually like the 996 outside of its headlight design.

  • Bo Hanan

    Does anyone else see a Mustang GT with a Porsche logo on the rear?

  • KAG25

    looks good, those rear wheel seem huge, like 22 inch

    • matrem

      Johnny at MotorTrend confirmed the tears are 22s.

      • KAG25

        fronts look smaller by a couple sizes, so like 20s and 22s. This thing must put down a high torque number.

  • Craig

    ‘All new’ Porsche 911 articles [with photos!] always stress me out. It’s like a girlfriend walking up to you and saying, “Do you notice anything different?” Oh my gawd. Is it the shoes? The hair? The dress? I DON’T KNOW! I GIVE UP!

    • ErnieB

      Roflmao!! Soo true!

  • NeoShark
    • StrangerGP

      Shut up and take my organs!

  • Navy Pier Moroccan ✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ

    Redesigning a Porsche 911 should be easy because it has been looking the same in design techniques past 20 years.

    • Greg Gliszczynski

      only someone who doesn’t know cars would say this!

      • Navy Pier Moroccan ✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ

        Only an offended Porsche fan would criticize.

        • Greg Gliszczynski

          well yeah, you’re comparing a chunk of cheap metal and plastic to something that came out of a race lab and their profiles are completely different.

          • Navy Pier Moroccan ✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ

            Still the same design from 20 plus years ago and will have to take a trained eye to spot the differences. Porsche sucks!

  • Blade t

    Looks good..

  • Astonman

    look at that reflection from the paint job. Beautiful!

  • SteersUright

    Well, it looks pretty darn awesome. Just wish the turbo’s were more exciting. They always seem to be fast GT’s and get poor reviews for thrills as those are all reserved for the GT3, GT3RS, 911S, GTS, etc. In fact, never really understood the positioning of the latest 911 Turbo’s. In the past they were the crazy ones in the lineup. Today, they’re what exactly?

    • Bob

      The iron fist in a velvet glove. The model that makes performance more accessible in most real-world cases.

  • Henry Ting

    Eye candy, what is that paint ?

  • Tane Rollins

    Wow, neat Ford Mustang.

  • joeybuttafucco

    Goodbye IRA!

  • An Existing Person

    Absolutely beautiful. As usual, Porsche nailed it with the 992 generation.
