Some were probably expecting the 991.2 label for Porsche's upcoming facelifted 911 range but it seems the cars will wear the 992 code and in Turbo Charged form...

So is the 911 about to head into a forced-induction-only future? If the strong rumours from our sources are correct, the answer to this question is a resounding ‘yes’. Because of this, the spy shots you see before you aren’t of a second-generation Porsche 991. Nope, this is the Porsche 992.

The rumours of the entire Porsche 911 range turning turbocharged are proving hard to ignore with the next Porsche 911 Carrera will be released with a forced induction motor and a new type code to recognise this large-scale change in philosophy.

While the change may spell the end of the naturally aspirated powerplant in the Porsche 911, flat six enthusiasts have no need to panic. The engine will still be mounted out the back and there will still be six cylinders in the famous ‘boxer’ arrangement.

So, the Porsche 992 – that’s its predicted internal name – will feature a smaller capacity engine, likely with twin turbochargers (as the current 991 Turbo has now). This will help with Porsche’s drive to improve performance and fuel economy while reducing CO2 emissions.

The car seen here is not your average blacked-out, taped-up test mule however. Looking resplendent in a mid-grey metallic, this pre-production 911 Carrera Cabriolet looks almost ready to launch.

In fact, there’s a chance the Porsche 992 will be officially unveiled at the Los Angeles Auto Show in November, as the new GTS...

The front and rear is taped up.

Looks like a 991 to me.

Question

The first 992 will be as a GTS, not Carrera?

The 991 didn't hang around too long did it? Can't believe it myself though.....

Ugh? What's with the vertical engine vents (or whatever they're called)?

Prefer the horizontal ones for sure.....

Rear lights look like the Gen.2 9997. Looks like a 991.2 to me.

Hard to believe a new type number wouldn't be more distinctive from the outside.

991 and 997 share the same door handles. These are different.

Good on Porsche for sticking with canvas/mohair on their convertibles, much nicer than almost every other manufacturers trend of fugly folding panels...

To be fair, they are fabric/mohair covered folding panels ...

One part I do like is the clean straight line from the roof onto the rear engine deck. The continuation is sleek. Agree the horizontal vents would of looked better then vertical lines.
Presumably they are vertical to increase air flow into the engine bay and air box. Question

Cool car all the same Grin

On the cars that do have the vertical slats (rather than previous legacy/historic horizontal slats), the channeling is 2/3 induction 1/3 intercooler - ie 991.2 turbo defined.

The 911R (and others) don't have the vertical slats.

The lifespan of a car model seems to be getting shorter and shorter.
Just as I was getting accustom to the 991, the 992 is being prepared to release...

I miss the days of the R129 Sl where the car was in production for over 10 years... I can only hope now the prices come down so they can be picked up by some of us mere mortals with not so deep pockets..
