New Porsche 911 Turbo Coupe And Cabrio Spotted Virtually Undisguised

It’s hard to believe the redesigned Porsche 911 was introduced nearly a year ago, but the company has been slowing rolling out new variants ever since then. The latest was the entry-level 911 Carrera and it appears the next could be the long-awaited 911 Turbo.

Recently spotted in coupe and cabriolet guise, the 911 Turbo doesn’t stray far from the standard model as it features a familiar front fascia with large air intakes and LED lighting units.

Bigger changes occur further back as the coupe has stylish five-spoke wheels that are backed up by a high-performance braking system with yellow calipers. The model has also been equipped with aerodynamic side skirts and wider rear fenders with prominent intakes.

The unique styling continues at the rear as the car has a power-deployable rear wing with an integrated third brake light. Underneath, is a new bumper with an integrated dual exhaust system and large opening near the outside edges.

The interior should echo the standard model, so drivers can expect to find an analog tachometer that is flanked by two 7-inch displays. There should also be a 10.9-inch touchscreen infotainment system, a sport steering wheel and the Sport Chrono Package.

Porsche has been tight-lipped about performance specifications, but previous reports have suggested the car will use a twin-turbo 3.8-liter flat-six engine that produces around 592 hp (441 kW / 600 PS). That’s a pretty big jump from the current rating of 533 hp (397 kW / 540 PS), but the 911 Carrera S has 30 hp (22 kW / 30 PS) more than its predecessor.

Besides the upgraded engine, we can expect a host of other performance changes. Nothing is official, but we wouldn’t be surprised if the car comes equipped with Porsche Dynamic Chassis Control, rear axle steering and a sport suspension that reduces the ride height by 0.4 inches (10 mm).

Since Porsche is using the Frankfurt Motor Show to highlight the all-new Taycan, the 911 Turbo could debut at either the Los Angeles or Geneva Motor Show.

    Sooooooo, next Turbo S around 640 – 650HP advertised with a 2.7 0 – 60 time, but real world at 2.4 secs and a 200mph top speed? That’s my prediction.

    • James Taylor

      Likely yes. My 14’ was listed at 2.9 but consistently 2.6
      I wouldn’t be surprised to see 2.4 myself. This is beyond crazy considering gas engine and 35-3600 lb weight

  • Six_Tymes

    It looks great, but its too damn big now.

    • exeptor

      Especially at the back – it looks really fat and I guess the reason is the high position of the light bar. Initially I’ve thought that it is a good one, but after I’ve saw the car in real word I do believe that, despite being a striking, it is not a beautiful design.

    • Rahul Mandala

      Blame the safety regulations. I think it still looks perfect.

  • Bo Hanan

    The rear exhaust are ugly. They are also position oddly.

  • Sebastien

    Turbo… Does it means it’s also an electrified version?? I’m now confused.

    Kidding

      You know, it’s “Turbo” which means it’s the performance version, above the turbocharged “non-Turbo” Carrera models. “Turbo” is what tells you it’s the highest performance model. Unless it’s the “Turbo S.” Then the “Turbo” isn’t the fastest “Turbo.” Then it’s the “Turbo S”. Unless they come out with a GT2 RS, which has the most powerful turbo, but isn’t labeled a “Turbo”. Or if you want the most involving track car. Then you get the GT3 RS, whose selling point is that it’s the only one without a turbo. Unless you are talking about the electric Taycan, which doesn’t have a turbo in any model. But the fast one is the “Turbo.” So the electric Taycan Turbo has no turbos, but the non-Turbo Carrera has turbos…got it?

        just stop. Lol

        How German of them.

      • Stephen G

        That’s a great explanation…now do you think you could nail down the “coupe” thing?

  • eb110americana

    Those front disk brakes look like freaking pie plates. I am disappointed to still see so much plastic in the front and rear bumpers of a car that is sure to be approaching $200K.

  • GobbleUp

    Same old.

    • Rahul Mandala

      Again. Dodges, Jeeps, GTRs, etc. have never even received changes at all and no one’s complaining about those. Besides, the 911 has gotten changes throughout the years, both inside and out.

  • xrnzaaas

    Why bother, they all look the same and no one’s gonna notice.

    • Rahul Mandala

      And? Challengers have been the same since 2008, yet no one’s complaining. The GT-R is 12 and will still continue to soldier on for god knows how long. Same with Jeep and the others.

  • Porkopolis

    Designers are making cars that don’t always photograph well but look amazing in person. These bots can’t see them in person. Alfa 4C, Toyota Supra, C8 Corvette, 992, new Mazda 3 hatch, MX-5…

  • SteersUright

    So clean, simply and classic 911. I love it. That said, it’d be nice to see them take a bit more chances. I’d love to see the headlights get a bit more upright like 911’s of old. Also, the front overhang has gotten ricidulously large for a rear-drive car and somewhat ruins the side profile of the car. Lastly, the wheels base really is just about 1-2 inches too long already. Nitpicking aside, a lovely, understated looking supercar I’d love to own.

  • Nastinupe1911

    I love the 992’s but the front end needs a little work.

  • I want my porsche with this colour and undisguised. when they show the production model I don’t like them this much.
