2020 Porsche 911 Meets Original 911 in Glossy Art

The 2020 Porsche 911 is the car of the 2018 Los Angeles Motor Show, at least in our book. The Porsche booth holds much more than just the Carrera S and the Carrera 4S models, as, for instance, it involves art depicting the sportscar.

And since not everybody is visiting the show, we've brought along a sample of that art. The pixels you see here come from Chris Labrooy, an artist that has a thing for Porsche and the kind of vision that influences others (we've featured his work in the past).

The image we have here shows the 992 sharing a garage with the original Neunelfer (and a few surfboards). And here's what the artist had to say about his creation: "The new 992 car has really grown on me over the last couple of months with it’s sharper detailing and wider track. When composing the image I immediately gravitated to the lovely rear 3/4 angle. If you are in LA you can see this and others at the Porsche booth,"

Speaking of the duo, there's just one spec we'd like to compare, since this influences the driving experience like no other. We are, of course, talking about the weight. And while the original Neunelfer tipped the scales at 1,238 lbs (1,080 kg), the 992 weighs in at 3382 lbs (1,534 kg). Note that the 2020 car is about 120 lbs (55 kg) heavier than the model it replaces.

The weight gain is split between the particulate filter hardware that allows emission compliance, the extra crash structures and the 8-speed PDK (it was previously a 7-speed).

Returning to the concept of 992 Porsche 911 renderings, we'll remind you this is the third one we deliver since the car was launched.

The other two came to showcase models that will be released in the future, such as the Cabriolet and the GT3 RS. These will join other derivatives, such as the already-spied GT3 and Turbo.

 

G.O.A.T part three. The new 992 car has really grown on me over the last couple of months with it’s sharper detailing and wider track. When composing the image I immediately gravitated to the lovely rear 3/4 angle. If you are in LA you can see this and others at the Porsche booth @laautoshow #porsche911
