2020 Porsche 911 Turbo Spotted in German Traffic, Shows Widebody Look

We are now months away from the introduction of the next-generation Porsche 911, so it shouldn't surprise you that prototypes show up in all sorts of scenarios. So while we talked about a 2020 911 Turbo Cabriolet doing its thing on the Nurburgring yesterday, we are now here to show you a 911 Turbo Coupe.

The test car has been spotted in German traffic, with the camouflage on the prototype being minimal. Now, you might want to know how the distinguish the Turbo from the Carrera (S) prototypes we've shown you on other occasions. And we can talk about three main visual clues that set the two apart.

For one thing, the Turbo comes in widebody form, while its hefty rear fenders pack air intakes. Then we have the rear wings - both the Carrera and the Turbo pack active units, but while the first comes with a unit that can be integrated into the design of the rear end, the aero element on the Turbo stands out.

We're expecting the twin-turbo 3.0-liter flat-six of the current Turbo to be retired in favor of an all-new unit. With the current motor packing variable geometry turbos and a civilian anti-lag system (we explained the system here), our expectations for the new unit are sky-high.

As for the Turbo S, this badge could morph into the Turbo S E-Hybrid, as it has happened with the second-generation Panamera and the third-gen Cayenne.

Nevertheless, no such move has been confirmed to date, even though Porsche has let it slip that the 992 Neunelfer will receive the first plug-in hybrid powertrain in the history of the model.

Of course, the Zuffenhausen-based automotive producer could always come up with a model like the 911 Carrera 4 E-Hybrid, which would offer Carrera S levels of performance with a focus on efficiency.
