The next generation of the Porsche 911 has now moved past its initial development stages, which means that prototypes are now hooned on the Nurburgring on a regular basis.
The latest adventure of the kind took place a few hours ago, offering us a sample of the next-gen Neunelfer soundtrack.

Expect the Carrera and Carrera S to be animated by upgraded versions of the new turbocharged 3.0-liter flat-six mills that entered service on the current 991.2 models - the current outputs sit at 370 hp and 420 hp, respectively, with the latter being pushed to 450 hp with the help of a Power Kit).

Regardless of the version, the Neunelfer will be significantly quicker, thanks to a melange involving wider tracks, an engine sitting slightly closer to the center of the car and a heftier rear wing.

With the vlogger behind this spy stunt having camped on the side of the Brunnchen 1 corner for over half an hour, you'll get plenty of occasions to listen to the Neunelfer - you'll find the Porscha at the 5:24, 13:45, 22:07 and 30:38 points of the clip. For the sake of aural comparison, we'll mention that you can also listen to the 991.2 Turbo S at the 27:19 point of the video, while the action at 34:26 will bring you the 2018 911 GT2 RS.

Speaking of which, we should get to see the next 911 Turbo leaving the test mule phase we've spied in the past behind and moving on to the new body displayed by the Carrera models.

Speaking of Porsche prototypes doing their thing on the Nurburgring this week, we'll remind you that the Mission E has also been hooned on the infamous German track. Compared to the last time we saw the Zuffenhausen EV attacking the Nordschleife, the prototype has lost some of its camo. Keep in mind that the Mission E should be introduced by late 2019, which means we have plenty of time to get under its still-hidden skin.
