911 Turbo Spied Without Camo
Now, these are spyshots, so we don’t really have a lot of detail on things like power. Still, we know that the 991 chassis is markedly faster than the 997 simply due to fact that it’s just plain better than the old chassis. It weighs less, has more grip, and has the best handling characteristics of any 911. Now, with the Turbo, it’ll have to speed as well.
From the pictures, we can tell that it’ll look pretty bad ass. The characteristic rear fender vents are present and accounted for. What’s different (or exceptional) is the venting the 911 rump, right above the engine bay. It’s got this segmented look to it that’s a pretty stylish departure from form for the 911. I’m certain it’s effective, but it’s also really aggressive. Again, this is a 911 we’re talking about here, so “really aggressive” just means it’ll be easy to tell this one apart from every other 911 ever built.
The whole thing looks great. I can’t wait until Porsche releases more info about what kind of go fast goodies they settled on for the Turbo 911. I’m expecting something, like 500 horsepower out of the gate. We’ll just have to wait and see.
