2021 Porsche 911 Turbo (992) Spotted in Traffic, Shows New Aerokit

If you have an Internet connection and care about cars at least a little bit, you've probably come across spy media portraying 992 Porsche 911 Turbo prototypes by now. We are now back on the topic, with a 2021 Neunelfer Turbo Cabriolet having been spotted in traffic.

The test car we have here was caught on camera while doing its thing in Stuttgart, the automaker's home city. With a few exceptions, such as the black pieces covering the sides of the rear light bar, the Turbo Cabriolet is fully uncovered, so we can now zoom in on its details.

Note that this prototype seems to use the same oval exhaust tips that are offered as part of the Sport Exhaust option on the Carrera and Carrera S. However, other test cars have shows the trapezoidal quad-pipe setup that is normally associated with the Turbo.

The aggressive aero elements found on the sides of the front apron probably mean that the prototype packs the optional Turbo Aerokit bumper (here's this package on the 991.2 Turbo S Exclusive - it comes as standard on this limited edition).

While the 992 Carrera is already wider than the car it replaces, the Turbo will come with even more generous tracks and the kind of flares that go with them.

On the firepower front, you can expect the newcomer to jump to about 600 horsepower. However, that muscle might come from an all-new unit, possibly based on the twin-turbo 3.0-liter flat-six powering the Carrera and Carrera S.

Regardless, since the 2021 Porsche 911 Turbo will debut by the end of the year, we should get the official details soon.

As far as the Turbo S goes, this might become the Turbo S E-Hybrid, joining the recently-launched Cayenne range-topper (and Panamera) on this gas-electric path. Nevertheless, we might have to wait for the ".2" mid-cycle refresh to see the move happening, with this expected to come around 2023.
