    Porsche 911 Turbo Convoy Hot-Weather Testing...

    (9 July 2012)
     
    Work never stops for automotive journalists – you never know when you’re going to run into a story, or a test mule. Our photographer Brian Vance, for example, was on vacation in Nevada when he saw a convoy of eight 991-series Porsche 911 Turbo coupes.
     
    These Georgia-plated (location of Porsche’s North American HQ) 911 Turbo mules were likely heading to Death Valley for some hot-weather testing. Despite the masked front-end and faux-997 taillights, these mules are clearly 991-series Turbo models. The giveaways include the prominent rear wing, flared wheel arches, the new front splitter, and the gaping air intakes just forward of the rear wheels.
     
    Rumor has it that the all-wheel-drive 911 Turbo may be powered by a tri-turbo F-6 of unknown displacement, producing more than 530 hp, the output of the previous-generation 911 Turbo S. Porsche’s seven-speed dual-clutch PDK automatic will most certainly be offered, while the new seven-speed manual transmission is likely. The 991-series 911 Turbo should debut late this year, as a 2014 model.

    That is the best rendering I have seen so far!  (Really like it a lot)  I've seen many reviews that call it going back to the 'old school' targa, and I will admit that the more recent targa design and any cabriolet have some major advantages in avoiding the sounds made when the targa top is in place. I have mentioned in other threads that there are some automotive sounds that are like a sirens song to me, but a squeaky targa top is just not one of them.

    However, I am a major sucker for that look. (even like the color)  Smiley

    Is the Targa slim or widebody ? So far (from the 997)  they have always been widebody, though personally would prefer the slim one.

    They are the widebody as evident by the extended rocker panel and reflector running across the rear.

    Render of the green car looks really good, and that one of the blue one I did about more than a year ago based off a spyshot. Smiley

    The article is dated 12th of July 2011 so I wouldn't call it new Smiley

    Regarding the lauch date of the turbo it's most likely to be @ Geneva and dealer introduction in May/June. No one would be happier than me if it's releaser earlier since I have ordered one Smiley

    No doubt that's a 991!


    Re: 991 spyshots thread (continued) (for UNRELEASED models only) Thread Closed

    Interesting! It´s definitely a 991 and definitely from Porsche Motorsport. I am just a bit surprised that they start testing on official tracks that early if the car is scheduled to debut in the 2014 season. Would it be possible that, as before, Porsche launches the 991 Cup in the Supercup races already in 2013 and in the national Cup series in 2014?

    Funny also since Oschersleben is 80 km from Volkswagen and regularly used by them...


    Re: 991 spyshots thread (continued) (for UNRELEASED models only) Thread Closed

    i saw a 991 Carrera 4S today and it had the red reflector light strip in the back...
