992 Porsche 911 Turbo Pictures Leaked!
992 Porsche 911 Turbo features more aggressive bodywork and, supposedly, 22-inch wheels.
Take it in, everyone, because this is the 992 Turbo way before Porsche wanted us to see it. Where did these images come from? None other than Motor Trend‘s own Jonny Lieberman, who shares the images on his Instagram account. According to Lieberman, the 992 Turbo is rocking 21-inch wheels up front and massive 22s out back. He also wonders aloud as to whether or not we will see the 992 Turbo at the fast-apporaching Geneva auto show.
A few things are worth noting this far. 992 has largely been an evolution of 991 generation Porsche 911, rather than a revolution. This has become an almost comical descriptor considering the glacial evolution of the 911, as a whole, but it’s true.
We expect the 992 Turbo to still pack a 3.8-liter twin-turbocharged flat-six engine, though, we also expect to see a power bump over the current car. The current 911 Turbo produces 540 horsepower, and the 911 Turbo S produces 580. Our math says 560 horsepower for the Turbo and an even 600 for the new Turbo S.
Of course, the 911 Turbo has always been known for its incredible power and acceleration, but this one also appears to benefit from a rather intense aerodynamics package. Indeed, it is much less stealthy than 911 Turbos of the past. Well, at least Turbo models not dubbed “930,” which were only fit for the certifiably insane among us.
Regardless, we agree with Lieberman, and expect to see a full reveal of the 992 Turbo at the Geneva auto show, which begins on March 7. Stay tuned for more news.
