And what does the Intenet do when it wants to pass the time? It comes up with renderings. This is how we ended up with the fantasy-happy pixel play above, which portrays the 992 Turbo in a way that will obviously remain confined to our screens - we'll tip our keyboards to Laurent Schmidt for this render.
Basically, we're dealing with a 991.2 Turbo S that has been gifted with the rear deck of the 918 Spyder. Then we have the slim LED headlights, which aim to deliver a production look proposal based on the visual clues dropped by the spied test cars.
And while we're talking prototypes, it's worth noting that, unlike the 992 Carreras, the next-gen Porsche 911 Turbo models we've spied so far are still in the test mule phase.
A track width boost will be one of the most important chassis updated brought by the generation change. And let's keep in mind that Zuffenhausen engineers are expected to bring the engine one or two inches closer to the center of the car.
Nevertheless, we're expecting the 992 Turbo to move on to the next-generation body by the end of the year and we can't wait to feast our eyes on its uber-wide stance. Meanwhile, here's a spy video showing a 992 Porsche 911 Turbo test mule doing its thing on the Nurburgring.
