That red looks fantastic. And so do those wheels!
The latest 992 generation Porsche 911 Turbo is set to be revealed next month at the 2020 Geneva Motor Show packing wider fenders, all-wheel-drive, and well over 600 horsepower. This is a big reveal for Porsche because this will be the fastest 911 available until (inevitably) the next GT2 RS arrives.
But prior to the big debut, leaked shots that were supposedly taken during a Porsche Exclusive Manufaktur photo have revealed exactly what the new 911 Turbo S will look like. And ooh baby, it's a looker.
Previous spy shots of the 911 Turbo and 911 Turbo convertible have both shown the car wearing black paint but this is the first time we've seen it in a bold hue like red. This red example is the Turbo S variant, as evidenced by the black, retro-themed '911 Turbo S' decal on the door. The car is also wearing a different set of wheels than the ones we've seen in previous spy shots, featuring center locks and a design reminiscent of the ones on the 991.2 Turbo S Exclusive Series but without the two-tone coloring.
Differences from the standard 911 Carrera include wider fenders, a fixed rear spoiler, and intakes behind the doors. This red example is likely fitted with options from Porsche Exclusive Manufaktur, so we expect not all Turbo S models will have these wheels. They certainly play with the black accents rather perfectly.
We expect a rear-mounted 3.8-liter flat-six producing around 600 horsepower in the Turbo while the Turbo S could produce nearly 640 hp. The last-generation Turbo used a seven-speed PDK transmission but this new model could use a new eight-speed gearbox. Pricing should be announced next month when the car is revealed at Geneva but we expect it to be slightly higher than the last one, which was priced at $162,000.
