Rumor

Will The Refreshed 911 Be Better Than The Current Version?

It'll be turbocharged and look something like this.

It’s been four years since the current, seventh-generation of the Porsche 911 (991) was revealed at the 2011 Frankfurt Motor Show. That's a long time in the automotive industry, so Porsche thought it would be a good idea to refresh its beloved 911 to keep it ahead of a growing pack. Here’s our best look at the new 991 testing in South Africa. While these vehicles are sporting a little bit of camo, they’re our best look yet at the new 911, which is rumored to debut at the Frankfurt Motor Show in September.

Some of the notable changes include: new headlights, revised taillights, aerodynamic enhancements around the vents and a central exhaust configuration. Despite a lack of pics, a modified interior will include a new 918-inspired steering wheel with four programmable driving modes. The biggest difference for the new 911s will be underneath the slightly revised body. The entire 911 lineup will benefit from turbochargers for improved fuel economy and more horsepower. Oddly enough, rumors are circulating that the revised 911’s turbocharged engine will closely be related to the naturally aspirated engine in the new GT3 RS.
