Default 2019 Porsche 911 (992)

First pictures of the next generation Porsche 911 (internal code: 992) with surprisingly low level of camouflage:

Looks typically Porsche evolutionary, but lovely all the same.

looks like minor changes to the 991.2 exterior likely combined with a Panorama interior and clearly Panamara type spoiler.... sounds pretty awesome to me. Wonder if the turbo 4 will be the new base engine

Pop-up spoiler being built in to the body above the lights, nice. The rest looks same as before so far.

Well if you want to test a new 911 and fly below the radar, camo is not helping. Car looks more or less the same to the untrained eye anyway (and Porsche does want that, as do the customers), so no surprises to me. I suppose we will see some greener (on paper) engines, more screen real estate inside, the usual stuff. Wonder if the manual gear box will survive, and if we will see autonomous driving in the 911....

Probably they will use it in some "die hard" performance models at a high premium. We are still speaking German car maker option possibilities ;)

Default All-turbo line-up

The news is that the new model will be all-turbo, including the previously-sacred GT3 versions. I don't know if this is such a smart move, given that early indication is that, at least in the US, the facelifted turbo 911 lineup is not selling as well as the old NA models: http://carsalesbase.com/us-sales-201...otics-segment/

Here is interesting news - the next Audi R8 will aparently be based of the Porsche 911 992, but only the front half of the car (steering, structure, axle), engine positions will remain where the cars have them currently, so the rear half of the chasis will be individual. An interesting case of "platform sharing"

It's what they did with the first Boxster and the 911.
