Porsche is going full throttle with the development of the next-generation 911, due in 2019. Here are the first shots of what’s to become the new 911 Turbo, likely due just months after the basic 911.
The Turbo will get a straighter front skirt and a straight front edge to the hood. The front wings will grow and clasp around the headlights. The Turbo-typical horizontal air inlet in the bonnet will be featured again and so will the air intakes behind the doors. Huge air intakes in the front bumper, the extendable spoiler lip, plus a pair of double daylight running lights will round off the 911 Turbo. Once again, it’s growing in width.
Inside the cabin, the new Turbo might feature Audi’s digital Virtual Cockpit. Under the rear bonnet, the car retains turbocharged engines, powering either the “regular” Turbo or the Turbo S. The top-of-the-range model might crack the 600hp barrier and will get pretty close to a time of 2.5 seconds for the 0–60 sprint.
