992 Turbo spot­ted test­ing at ‘Ring

Pro­to­type’s first visit to Green Hell re­veals new front PU and ex­tended rear spoiler

Total 911 - - Update -

To­tal 911’s spies have cap­tured the next-gen­er­a­tion Porsche 992 Turbo test­ing at the Nür­bur­gring Nord­schleife for the first time. Af­ter var­i­ous sight­ings of pro­to­types grac­ing the pub­lic road in re­cent months, a visit to the Green Hell shows Porsche is step­ping up its test­ing ef­forts as the com­pany looks to in­tro­duce the car by the end of next year.

The pic­tures re­veal key new de­tails to the next-gen 911 Turbo’s makeup, in­clud­ing a re­vi­sion to its ac­tive aero­dy­nam­ics. At the rear, the Turbo’s wing, which was pre­vi­ously re­vealed to be much wider than the out­go­ing 991.2, also ap­pears to sit much higher on taller, ex­tend­able struts. Mean­while, at the front of the car, a re­vised ac­tive lip sits be­low the mule’s PU as Porsche looks to man­age down­force and aero­dy­nam­ics in its Turbo su­per­car, which is set to of­fer an en­gine with an out­put of 600hp-plus for the first time.
