992 Porsche 911 week has officially begun.
First things first: Yes, we know these leaked images are not of the highest quality and we expect plenty of high-res images to arrive in another day or so. But thanks to the crew over at Jalopnik who received these leaked images from an anonymous source, you can see official images of the all-new 2020 Porsche 911 right here right now. Presenting the 992 generation 911 in all of its (grainy) glory.
Over the past few months, we’ve seen a lot of 992 911 spy shots and even a few showing nearly naked prototypes with little to no camo. But this is the week. More specifically, 992 911 week. It will be making its official debut in a few days at the LA Auto Show and we’ll be on hand to take plenty of live photos and bring you all of the biggest details.
For today, let’s examine a bit further these leaked images. Based on what we can tell from the rear end, the new 911 you’re looking at is the Carrera 4S. The other two images show the car from the front and a side-rear angle. We don’t have official specs at this time, but we can confidently confirm the following: it’ll be rear-engined and its engines will be turbocharged.
More specifically, those turbocharged flat-sixes will be heavily revised versions of the two currently available in the base 911 Carrera and Carrera 4S where the produce 385 hp and 450 hp, respectively. A new eight-speed dual-clutch gearbox is expected to replace the current seven-speed DCT but, again, that’s not exactly new news. The seven-speed manual is expected to be carried-over, though with some adjustments.
While the new 911’s exterior can’t be mistaken for anything but a 911, it’s the interior that’s undergoing the most dramatic styling changes. For example, expect a far more sophisticated dashboard design than on the current model as four out of the five gauges are now digital. The rest of the interior is also all-new and features a more premium look and build materials. So, when exactly will the 2020 Porsche 911 be revealed to the world. That will happen on Tuesday, November 27 at 8 p.m. LA time.
