We'll have our answer next September.
It’s kind of hard to believe the Porsche 911 991 generation has been around since 2011. A lot has happened since then. Think about it. An all-new Chevrolet Corvette, Ford Mustang, and, not to mention, the Porsche 918 Spyder. Obviously those are just a few new arrivals. And next September a heavily facelifted 911 will debut at the Frankfurt Motor Show. Along with various styling updates, notably up front and rear, we’re expecting to see a range of new turbocharged flat-six engines.
Does this mean the naturally aspirated flat-sixes are goners? We don’t know just yet. So in the meantime, rendering artist Theophilus Chin has created this image, based on various spy shots, of what the restyled front end design may look like. Clearly there are styling bits taken right from the 918. We’re also digging that front spoiler and larger vents. The hood also has a more sculpted look. Overall we like what we’re seeing, but won’t for sure until later next year.
