The new Porsche 911: the first official imagesFebruary 23, 2018
True, in the official photos the body of the car is still covered by camouflage.
The company began preparations for the debut of the Porsche 911 new generation (992), which is to be held later this year, and published three images of a pre-production prototype completely covered with a protective film. Despite the camouflage, you can see that the changes in the design of the model will have an evolutionary character.
Porsche is not in a hurry to disclose details about the novelty. Although, it is already known that the sport car of the new generation will not be electric. However, in the future it can be electrified – the output of the plug-hybrid 911 is expected, presumably, in 2023.
Director of the 911 model line August Ahlyayner said that 911 is the “heart of the company” and he will always have a steering wheel. Even if autonomous cars “capture” the world earlier than expected, the manufacturer promises that the 911 will surrender one of the last.
The Porsche 911 (992) will use the upgraded MMB platform with a wider use of aluminum and high-strength steel to reduce weight. The dimensions of the model are expected to remain the same. By the way, recently on the web appeared a picture revealing the design of the next generation of feed 911.
A few days ago, Porsche introduced an updated version of the 911 GT3 RS. The novelty became the most powerful serial model of the brand with the atmospheric engine.
