jnrdavo Posted March 10 Share Posted March 10 The 2023 Porsche 911 Turbo has been spied again, ahead of an expected reveal later this year. Our spy photographers caught a glimpse of the 992.2-generation 911 Turbo prototype as Porsche continues its development of the 911 range. The front and side design remain the same as the current model, which is in keeping with what we’d expect from a mid-life refresh. The rear design of the prototype features new tail lights that are subtly hidden behind black disguise. A minor design change for the rear bumper offers a unique exhaust in comparison to the current Turbo, with bifurcated tips on each side of a prominent diffuser. Black camouflage draws attention to the mid-section of the rear bumper which our photographers suggest could make the exhaust pipes sit slightly further towards the outer corners of the rear bumper. Porsche is set to update the interior of the vehicle, and include a fully digital instrument cluster – a first for the 911, which traditionally has featured a five-gauge array centred around a prominent rev counter. Engine outputs have not been confirmed as of yet, but a power boost is likely for the 3.8-litre turbocharged flat-six engine that currently features. Currently the Turbo makes 427kW and 750Nm, while the range-topping Turbo S has 478kW of power and 800Nm of torque. Both models are all-wheel drive and use an eight-speed dual-clutch transmission. Previous spy photos showed the Turbo S with a disguised front bumper including additional prototype fog lights, and new radar pod built into the lower front bumper. The air intakes also featured new vertical vanes in its outer edges, however it appears Porsche has cleaned this up in the latest prototype. The current 992-generation 911 debuted in 2019, and it’s unclear exactly when the 992.2 update for the 911 Turbo will be released. Porsche is known to stagger its 911 releases, previously the Carrera, Carrera 4 and Carrera S launched first then the brand expanded to the Targa, Turbo, GT3 and GTS variations.
