Here's The 2021 Porsche 911 Turbo (992) Waving Its Active Spoiler In Traffic

The 992 incarnation of the Porsche 911 Turbo is just around the corner. No, really, it is, as you'll notice in the pieces of spy footage we have here. The official debut of the 2021 Porsche 911 Turbo is expected to take place next month, while customer deliveries are rumored to kick off in April 2020.

Regardless of those dates' accuracy, it's clear that Zuffenhausen engineers are currently polishing the final details of the rear-engined machine.

Once again, the Neunelfer will make use of PAA (Porsche Active Aerodynamics), which will feature at least thee elements, namely that rear wing, the front skirt and the front grilles.

Despite the fact the 992 Carrera (S) is wider than the car it replaces, the Turbo will be even more gifted in this area. Of course, the wider tracks are just one of the ingredients that make me expect the newcomer to become a member of the sub-7 Nurburgring club.

The firepower should come from a new flat-six, with Porsche expected to retire the 3.8-liter boxer of the outgoing car in the race to meet ever-stricter emission standards. Hopefully, the Turbo implementation of the new 8-speed PDK will have a more aggressive mode than the ones present on the 992 Carrera S.

The 911 Turbo has become a synonym for a supercar that you can daily drive and, if the assets of the 2020 Carrera S are any indication of this, the new Turbo will pack an expanded breath of ability.

When discussing the Turbo S, we need to go deep down the speculation path. You see, Porsche could repeat the Turbo S E-Hybrid move it delivered with the Panamera and the Cayenne (the Cayenne T S E-H was introduced earlier this month, remember?).

Nevertheless, the potential Porsche 911 Turbo S E-Hybrid might not land until the ".2" mid-cycle revamp of the 992, which is still three to four years away.
