Here is the new Porsche 911 ! This eighth generation is the type 992.
The eighth generation of the Porsche 911 will be unveiled on the 30th of November next, at the salon of Los Angeles. Porsche today revealed pictures of its new 911 almost without camouflage. What is it that is changing ?
The new Porsche 911 (type 992) will make its first public appearance at the salon of Los Angeles 2018 (from 30 November to 9 December). It will be the star of the show in california.
As a reminder, the current Porsche 911 (type 991) was unveiled in 2011 at the Frankfurt motor show, and then restyled in 2016.
The new Porsche 911 sports a headband at the back and tailpipes positioned further in height.
This eighth generation is already almost without any camouflage. These are the first official photos provided by Porsche. The vehicles drive in convoy in the area of San Francisco.
To keep a margin of manoeuvre with the images that will be provided at the time of the show, the brand has chosen a new 911 all black. The vivid hues and the grey that reveal more of the lines of the car, it will be later.
Still a few details hidden the cutout of The cover, so GT2, is only a decoy.
This model still retains the traces of the stickers and, to make it more authentic, the dust that is apparent on the painted dark.
The other element that is in contrast, a thin, white-the symbol of a false cutting between the front cover and the shield. A rounded baroque, reminiscent of the air intake which is located precisely at this place on the Porsche 911 GT2 and GT3 has no place to be on a ‘simple’ 911 Carrera. In reality, the demarcation is right, in the front, between the different elements of body .
The corner of the fire is still hidden.
It will also be necessary to wait for the opening of the exhibition of Los Angeles to discover the junction between the fire and the rear wing. For the moment, it remains hidden, just as the lower part of the strip of light between the optical rear. It is necessary to keep a little suspense before the revelation official. However, this should logically look like that found on the Porsche Panamera, Porsche Cayenne and the Porsche Macan just rework. But also be influenced by the sublime Porsche Mission E.
The tailpipes of the new Porsche 911 are moved up and are now taking up both sides of the frame plate. The projectors adopt a lighting, each with four points of light, a signature view of the SUV Macan and Cayenne. Finally, the front shield put on a air intake that is stretched to the maximum which thins the lines. All in all, the design of the new 911 brings a purity of formal welcome. We’re excited to explore it in its entirety.
Of course, it is not a revolution but, as usual, a subtle evolution since 1963. A tradition to preserve the DNA of this unique sport legendary.
