    Front track wider by 40mm with the same body width as GTS. 

    That’s a big improvement...

    245/35 ZR20 and 305/30 ZR21  as standard

    450 hp for Carrera S, around 530nm torque

    385 hp for base Carrera (why not 400?)

    Yes, the 992 looks nice but I think that the 992.2 will be the design everyone will like most (front lights get overhaul).

    Did someone mention that the new 992 gets heavier?

    2020 Porsche 911 Carrera S Ride Along: A Sneak Peek At An LA-Bound Treat


     

    Carrera S will initially be launched exclusively with the self-shifting gearbox.

     

     

    seven-speed stick will join the entire Carrera line-up when non-S Carrera arrives early next year.

     

     

    “This is a completely new transmission for the 911. The PDK is now [an] eight-speed, taken from the new https://www.motor1.com/porsche/panamera/"Panamera but with a changed layout.”

     

     

    Notably, Porsche has prepped the transmission to accept an electric  motor (although the space for that theoretical motor goes unoccupied for  now).

     

     

    Achleitner is quick to point out that current battery performance isn’t  yet good enough for Porsche to push the technology into its famed sports  car.

     

     

    There’s a double-layered space in the body to house the eventual battery  packs, which, like the gearbox casing, remains empty for the time  being. Even so, the new transmission weighs about 44 pounds more than  the current seven-speed PDK. In order to offset the extra mass of the  transmission, Porsche employs additional aluminum in the body of the  992. Retaining the weight of the existing car has been one of the goals,  and Porsche claims it’s succeeded in achieving this.

     

     

    Achleitner shares that “there will be no narrow-bodied Carrera,” this  time around, and that all 992 models will wear the wide rear hips of the  Carrera S prototypes present today. While the rear-end width happens to  be the same size as that of the current 911 GTS and GT3, engineers  managed to increase the front track of the new car by 1.57 inches  (40mm).

     

     

    Power comes courtesy of a revamped twin-turbocharged 3.0-liter flat-six  engine. There’s a new intake system, revised cooling (the intercoolers  now sit on top of the engine rather than on the sides), revised  turbocharger housings, a new exhaust, and piezo fuel injection. Shorter  paths, quicker spooling turbos, reduced temperature, and more precise  fuel injection all work in the 992’s favor and further improve the  immediacy of the powertrain’s responses.

     

     

    What is definitely standard fitment, though, is a new Wet detector  system. Linked to the Wet mode (one of several driving modes that also  include Normal, Sport, Sport+, and Individual settings), the 992  features acoustic sensors in the front wheel wells that detect water on  the road surface and adjust the stability control system, gearbox  settings, and rear wing position to help the driver maintain stability  in the wet. Achleitner says it’s useful as the 992 is relatively light  and rides on wide tires. The Wet detector system operates automatically,  and independent of the windshield wipers. After all, standing water is  not synonymous with rainfall.

     

     

    Look for more on the 2020 Porsche 911 at November's Los Angeles Auto Show.

    Sky saw this and said: "look Sun, a line of Panameras!"

     


    Re: 992 Thread Closed

    Watt, make no mistake, the new Carrera S will be quite fast on the track, even if it is slightly longer (2cm I think, not sure I remember right) and heavier (35 kg so far...) than the old one.

    Re: 992 Thread Closed

    Some really dirty photo editing:

    Tried to reconstruct the left rear light of the rearmost car. I think the camo outlines at the pointy ends of the rear lights is suggesting a line too much forward (in earlier spyshots, it could clearly be seen that those were fake lines, just like they are around the frunk). The central brake light, I have no clue what that will look like.
    unnamed.jpg

    Tried to reconstruct the rear light shape and remove the fake shut lines of the front and rear fenders... didn't really succeed.
    unnamed-1.jpg

    Tried to make the fake shut lines of the frunk and the front fender a bit less, so as to give an idea how the front looks like. Furthermore, there is only the stickers on the headlights which give it the face of the 991 headlights, which I couldn't remove. I don't think the outer dimensions will change much, but the interior of the headlights might change big time compared to the 991. I don't see any more camo on the front.

    The review is a bit shallow...no insights on how it drives compared to the predecessor. He's simply repeating what has already been published in the many online articles. Maybe he's not allowed to tell more (driving dynamics etc.) ? yes

    The several articles that are being posted in the last 24 hours and the video above that i posted were made in July. The guy in the video says "4 months before it will be launched at the LA Auto Show"

    So, the LA Auto show was planned all along not Paris as I tought and most of us tought too.

    I'd imagine (or rather, hope smiley) that the central brake light is actually the two individual central vanes of the engine deck grille.
