2020 Porsche 911 First Official Photos Leaked

Even though Porsche announced the 992 would premiere next week at the 2018 Los Angeles Auto Show, a gentleman from the Worldscoop forum has published three photographs of the all-new model onto the Internet. The low resolution doesn’t do the 911 justice, but would you look at the full-width taillight bar and those muscular hips!

The silver- and blue-painted cars appear to be both Carrera S models, which should develop in the ballpark of 450 PS (444 horsepower) and 530 Nm (391 pound-feet) of torque. That an impressive upgrade from the 420 PS (414 horsepower) and 500 Nm (369 pound-feet) in the outgoing generation, which starts at $105,100 in the United States.

Porschephiles will notice the rear-end design takes inspiration from the Panamera and Cayenne, but the 992 also happens to introduce an eight-speed PDK related to the transmission in the Panamera. The 991 and 991.2, on the other hand, make do with seven forward gears.

Scheduled for unveiling on November 27th, the 992 is also confirmed to introduce matrix LED headlights and “much more” according to Porsche’s teasing campaign. Details on the 2020 Porsche 911 are still on the slim side of things, but we’ve heard through the grapevine the entry-level Carrera will make do with 385 PS (380 horsepower) from the 3.0-liter twin-turbo H6.

One of the biggest unknowns is curb weight, which stands at 1,505 kilograms (3,318 pounds) for the Carrera on sale today. The Carrera T is the lightest of the lot at 1,500 kilograms (3,307 pounds), but knowing Porsche, clever engineering and the extensive use of aluminum should do the trick.

The Neunelfer will receive the Cabriolet treatment sometime next year, after which Porsche will sweeten the deal with the Targa. The GT3 will retain the naturally aspirated flat-six engine we know and love based on spy videos of pre-production prototypes on the Nurburgring. As for the Turbo, let's wait and see if the 3.8-liter twin-turbo H6 will be upgraded once again. In regard to the often rumored 911 PHEV, the mid-cycle refresh is when it will be introduced according to chief executive officer Oliver Blume.
