The 992 generation of the Porsche 911 is expected to make its debut at the end of the month (think: Los Angeles Motor Show). As such, it shouldn't come as a surprise that naked prototypes are being spotted across the world. In fact, the German engineers are testing so many units that we can now see how the various shades cover the 2020 Porsche 911.
And the freshest example of the sort comes from the Carrera (S) model we have here, which seems to be dressed in Gulf Blue. Of course, the lighting conditions and the camera used to capture the thing make comparisons extremely difficult, but we'll deliver one anyway - here's a 992 that seems to be dressed in Miami Blue.

Returning to the color we have here, the light nature of the hue allows us to check out the styling cues of the eigth-generation Neunelfer in detail.

In our book, the mature design of the newcomer works brilliantly, with this mixing elements that remind us of the 993 (the overall profile of the car) and the 959 (the massive active wing, when in the upright position) with futuristic bits, such as the rear light clusters. Then again, we'll have to wait for the in-the-flesh meeting for a final verdict.

As for the interior of the 2020 Porsche 911, previous spy material has tipped us on the most important changes. The list is led by the partially digital dashboard, which maintains the analog center tacho, now flanked by a pair of screens that allows the tradition five-instrument layout to be present.

On the tech front, you can expect a fully tech-gifted Carrera S to lap the Nurburgring almost as quickly as the 991.1-generation GT3 RS (the Rennsport model needed 7:20 for the job, while the 991.2 Carrera S could do it in 7:30), with one of the updates responsible for the stopwatch progress being the wider tracks.

Then again, the Neunelfer will be even easier to use on a daily basis. For instance, as highlighted by a previous prototype sighting, the rear-engined machine will pack a Wet driving mode.

This will be automatically activated, based on sensors detecting the water entering the wheel arches.


The eighth generation will continue the tradition of being the best 911 of all time. #Porsche #PorscheLebanonFans #PorscheCentreLebanon #Motorsport #Lebanon |
