Photos of prototypes Porsche 992 Turbo posted on social networks

Porsche posted the first photos of the 911 Turbo coupe and cabriolet in the 992 body in an Instagram account.

Almost a year has passed since the debut of the eighth-generation Porsche 911, and the carmaker from Stuttgart decided to foster consumer interest in the release of the top-end “civilian” modifications Turbo and Turbo S. Three pre-production prototypes of the 992 Turbo with two body types were “lit up” during tests in French Nice. Around the 992 Turbo Convertible, Porsche test pilot Jörg Bergmeister poses for the press service.

Probably, the appearance of the serial 992 Turbo will be slightly different from the prototypes: the sports car will receive a differently designed exhaust system, original bumpers, spoiler, front splitter and diffuser. Also, the Turbo versions will differ from the Carrera line with wheel disks with a “racing” fastening with one nut and more efficient carbon-ceramic brakes with yellow calipers.

It is expected that 992 in the Turbo version will be equipped with a 3.8-liter six-cylinder biturbo engine with a capacity of over 600 horsepower, an 8-speed robotic transmission and all-wheel drive. On the Turbo S version, a return of 650 horsepower and 800 Nm of torque is projected, but these characteristics are not confirmed.

Porsche promises to introduce the 992 Turbo next spring. Probably, within six months before the premiere of Turbo-performances, the range of “nine hundred and elevenths” will replenish with other modifications: the next version is the Targa and the family of new 911 GTS.

While the Porsche 992 can be ordered in coupe and cabriolet versions Carrera, Carrera S, Carrera 4 and Carrera 4S.
