Front-Engined Porsche 911 V8 Rendering Is Ready to Offend

There are many enthusiasts out there who are still intrigued by the fact that the Porsche 911 keeps its engine at the back, considering this to be the wrong place for the motor.
Well, here we are, bringing you a rather bizarre take on the Neunelfer, one that will make Porsche purists cringe.

That's because the 911 we have here keeps its engine up front and it seems like this Porscha packs a monstrous twin-turbo V8 - judging by the looks of the hardware, it wouldn't surprise us if this delivered a four-figure output.

Then again, discussing the hp number of this engine is futile, since we're looking at a rendering. Besides, the virtual contraption has also been gifted with what appears to be an overly solid roll cage, so it can probably take whatever rotten tomatoes anybody is willing to throw at it.

The render comes from Yasid Oozeear, a digital artist whose work we featured on tons of occasions. And while this is one of his most outlandish pieces, it's certainly not the only one of the kind.

Now, if we are to talk about what happens in the 911 real-world, we need to mention that Porsche is currently testing multiple incarnations of the flat-six machine.

We'll start with the upcoming 2019 Porsche 911 Speedster. Basically a GT3 Cabriolet, this will be the swansong of the 991.2 generation.

And the picture is much bigger than that. To be more precise, the 992 is almost ready to take over and it seems that the 992 Carrera is set to make its debut this fall.

In fact, prototypes of the next-gen Porsche 911 Turbo and 911 GT3 have also been spotted testing (in fact, here's a 2020 GT3 in production trim). Nevertheless, we'll have to wait for next year to see this, as these are set to reach the US market in the form of 2020 models.
