    Looks terrific from this viewpoint--the design is very integrated and pleasing.  And if the performance is as rumored, this car will be far and away the best of the "911" variants. 

    But I admit that some sadness is beginning to creep into my mind about this car.  I am beginning to wonder more and more if the "911" concept is inevitably becoming a narrow niche within Porsche.  If my memory serves me right, Panameras and Cayennes are far outselling the model, and with more different  models to come (Cajuns, facelifted Panameras, a mid-engine supercar below the 918, etc.), and new markets like China which seems to favor larger cars,  will the "911" eventually and gradually fall behind?  Put another way, will customers overall share our same passion for an expensive two seater performance car?

    finally they took off the rear plastic...  however, still hard to tell the rear light shape..  looks pushed inward...   it could be very nice

    i agree - the rear seems to tuck in as you go down the back window.  reminds of a shot of the new Cayman.

    at this point i like the looks of the cab's rear more than the coupe but will have to wait for the "flesh" version.

    Next-Generation Porsche 911, Boxster Testing on European Roads...

    Are you ready for a new batch of Porsches? As these spy photos from Europe demonstrate, new versions of the 911 coupe and Boxster roadster are in the final stages of development...

    The new 911, which will be known internally as the 991 instead of the current model’s 997 designation, is expected to debut within a year. The end of the current 997 generation has been prominently presaged by special-edition cars like the 911 GT3 RS 4.0 and 911 Carrera Black Edition. The new car will retain the basic, iconic 911 shape, with bulging rear haunches and a sloping rear window.

    The 991 should be around 100 pounds lighter and marginally more aerodynamic than its predecessor. The wheelbase will grow a few inches, permitting an enlarged cabin and improved handling. Like the last 911 we spied, this car wears fake 911 Turbo-style side air intakes, but the four big exhaust outlets certainly seem real.

    As for the drivetrain, we expect the base Carrera to pack a 3.4-liter flat-six good for 350 hp, while the Carrera S will tout 400 hp from a 3.8-liter unit. Porsche is expected to offer a choice between a seven-speed dual-clutch and a seven-speed manual transmission. Yes, a seven-speed manual. We’re imagining a rather convoluted shift layout. Technological highlights will include everything from LED lighting (barely visible behind camouflage tape in these photos), to dynamic engine mounts, to the latest version of Porsche Dynamic Chassis Control suspension.

    The expected weight reduction, revised engines, and new engine stop-start feature are expected to improve fuel economy by 10 percent. The interior will be inspired by that of the Panamera, with a wider and taller center console likely to dominate the design. The 911 Carrera should have 19-inch wheels, black brake calipers, and dual oval exhausts, whereas the Carrera S will have 20-inch wheels, six-piston front brake calipers, Porsche Torque Vectoring, and the quad exhausts seen here.

    The current-generation Boxster’s demise has also long been expected, with the Boxster Black Edition likely serving as its elegy. The convertible’s replacement, which gets the internal designation 981, may bow early next year. It will be closely linked to the new 911 and will employ some of the same chassis components as the next-gen 911. That means the Boxster will grow slightly, although these photos don’t reveal any dramatic styling changes for the new model. As we saw on earlier spy photos, the nose and headlights will become more 911-like, while the tail may become slightly narrower than on the current Boxster.

    We expect the Boxster lineup will launch with flat-six engines in 2.7-liter, 255-hp and3.4-liter, 315-hp guises. At a later date, it’s widely believed a turbocharged four-cylinder will join the fray; reports say Porsche has developed 1.9-liter and 2.5-liter turbocharged flat-four engines. The latter produces approximately 360 hp and is the most likely candidate for the Boxster.

    There’s still no official date for the debut of either of the new Porsches. The 911 had been expected to bow at this year’s Geneva Motor Show, but it didn’t. We can probably expect to see the new Boxster and the new 911 within the next 12 to 18 months.

    Me three. 

    I really like the wider "hips" and wider-spaced headlights of the new 991, though am yawning a little at the "changes" to the Boxster. I'd really like to see the Boxster rear distinct from the front as much as on the 550. The front of the new car looks  "samey" as the rear like previous models. I also am not sure what to think about the increasing height of the window line, as I question how the current high-sill look (e.g. check out all existing BMW and Audi models) will appear to enthusiasts a generation or two later.

    VLN Nurburgring 2011: Lietz, Holzer and Long wins for Porsche 911 GT3 R Hybrid

    28/05/2011 (Speed ​​Magazine / Porsche) Less refuel, drive longer: this is the recipe for success of the enhanced Porsche 911 GT3 R hybrid. With version 2.0, drove the Porsche works driver Richard Lietz (Austria), Marco Holzer (Lochau) and Patrick Long (USA) at the fourth round of the Endurance Championship for the first victory of the innovative hybrid race car from Weissach. While almost all direct competitors three times to refuel in the pits had to come the hybrid penalty only two stops with and therefore provides the first night victory for a Porsche hybrid. The known to be thrifty Porsche 911 GT3 RSR by Manthey Racing the Porsche works driver Marc Lieb (Germany), Romain Dumas (France) and Manthey-driver Lucas Luhr (Switzerland) also came two stops with and made ​​the Porsche double victory perfectly.

    The second race of the 911 GT3 R hybrid in the Endurance Championship in 2011 was the successful completion of the intensive preparation for the 24-hour race Nürburgring 25-26. June. "We are using the technical specifications of the vehicle and the reliability of the hybrid system extremely satisfied," says Porsche head of motorsport Hartmut Kristen. "We have over the competition and go save a pit stop with less energy input from the outside similarly fast lap times. This is what we mean by Intelligent Performance Porsche. I am particularly pleased that even the 911 GT3 RSR fielded by the Manthey Racing Porsche was able to prove the efficiency of known 911 models and was number two. "

    The focus of the development of the Porsche 911 GT3 R hybrid was clearly on the increase in efficiency. For this, the vehicle weight was reduced from 1,350 kg to 1,300, which even the hybrid components are involved. Their weight was reduced by 20 percent by direct optimization. The general hybrid layout was taken from the 2010s model.

    The power used in the portal axle two electric motors has been increased from every 60 to 75 kilowatts. Overall, the pilot of the 911 GT3 R Hybrid 2.0 seconds, an additional capacity of around 200 horsepower, which corresponds to a lap on the Nordschleife of an additional conventional capacity of approximately 23 kW (32 hp). The electric power is automatically supplied as programmed when the accelerator pedal. In addition, the pilot, the hybrid-electric auxiliary power to retrieve it manually, for example when overtaking. While the portal axle drives the front wheels, was the 4.0-liter, now 465 hp six-cylinder boxer engine that delivers its power to the rear axle, cut back in power, and optimized in terms of fuel consumption.

    "We ran like clockwork hybrid penalty", says Marco Holzer. "The key to success was now near the low fuel consumption and reliable technology that all drivers were on a uniformly high level of the road and have made no mistakes," added team-mate Richard Lietz.

    A trouble-free race also went to the yellow-green Porsche 911 GT3 RSR Manthey Racing. With seven seconds behind occupied Marc Lieb, Romain Dumas and Lucas Luhr took second place. "This was an almost perfect race. Unfortunately, our 911 GT3 R, the cockpit I've shared with Timo Bernhard and Romain Dumas, unceremoniously bowled by a competitor from the runway, "said double starter Marc Lieb.

     Very nice! Thank you. A great win for the hybrid, although I'm still concerned with the lap times. They are much better than last year , but still slower than the top 5.

     Does anyone know if the 918 RSR will be brought to the Nordschleife for the 24 hours? I remember a while back before the 918 RSR, Porsche announced they would build a 918 to race at the 24 Hours of the Nuerburgring, but when the car came out, nothing about it racing was mentioned.

    Did anybody else notice the front splitter on this mule? Maybe this is an optional front splitter?


    Re: Porsche 991 GT3 to include GT1 motorsport engine... Thread Closed

    Porsche have clearly said that they will race the GT3 R Hybrid 2.0 until the end of this year, and if all goes well, the plan is to race the 918 RSR next year.
