New Porsche 911 Future Models Detailed
text size: A- A+
No, of course, we wont be stuck with this generation for all that time - we will receive two seven-year cycles, as CAR magazine reports. So’ let’s see what German metal will be thrown at us.
By the end of the year, we’ll be able to see the wind-in-your hair 911 Cabrio. Late next year, the automaker will give us the four-wheel-drive versions of the models released by then, which means that we’ll get a Carrera 4 Coupe & Cabrio and a Carrera 4S Coupe and Cabrio.
2013 will be the all-important year when we get the 911 Turbo, which is expected to come with at least 520 hp (the 2013 MY Nissan GT-R should offer 570, so we can’t see why the Germans would let their guard down), as well as the pure driving machine, the GT3.
One year after that, in late 2014, we will be treated with a Targa model that will come with a removable glass roof, not a sliding glass one.
There are also other meaner versions coming, like the the usual, GT2, RS, but it’s still to early to tell when. Knowing Porsche, towards the end of the 7-year lifecycle of the 991 generation. we’ll probably get a multitude of special editions, which are really only important for collectors and Porsche fans.
However, there is one important variant: the hybrid 911, a vehicle that Porsche has recently talked about. Rumors placed it in line with the current 991 generation, but it might not happen until the next one.
