Porsche 911 Turbo S Gets Tweaked, Again
More spy shots of the Porsche 911 Turbo facelift in pre-production trim surfaced once again. “Just like on the “normal” 991 versions that we also spotted earlier, this one is rumored to get the 992 internal code as well,” our insider tells us.
Compared to the latest Turbo S version photo above from Porsche, the differences are barely noticeable to the untrained eye. Can you spot the differences?
The engine grille is probably the most obvious upgrade that you can compare easily with the most recent publicity shots of the turbocharged beast. The new one has vertical slots, the old grille has horizontal ones – those were so the day before yesterday.
The other obvious change to the widest body of all 911 cars involves the rear lower side vents, which has three horizontal (not vertical) slashes instead of a single, curved and trapezoidal duct. Not sure which looks better but the new version looks meaner and less elegant.
The area around the bumper kit appears to be more bulbous around the reflectors and most likely reduces some of the minuscule tail drag. Still it’s a minor tweak and surely a matter of much debate among the engineers.
Kiss the old Porsche 911 Turbo S (above) goodbye. Say hello to tomorrow.
