992 takes to the ‘Ring

Next-gen 911 looks to set Nord­schleife time ahead of 11 Oc­to­ber re­veal

Total 911 - - Update -

The 992 has been spot­ted un­der­tak­ing fly­ing laps around the Nür­bur­gring Nord­schleife as Porsche looks to ce­ment a lap time at the fa­mous cir­cuit ready for the car’s im­mi­nent re­lease.

Porsche took two mules out onto the ‘Ring, the most no­tice­able dif­fer­ence be­tween them found at their rears: the twin oval pipes of one pro­to­type in­di­cates the shape of the stock ex­haust sys­tem, while the quad-tipped pro­to­type hints at the ap­pear­ance of cars fit­ted with op­tional Sports ex­haust.

Both cars re­vealed the ex­tent of changes to the next 911’s ac­tive rear wing, which will have the widest pro­file ever on a 911 Car­rera, ex­tend­ing right round to be­hind the rear arches on ei­ther side. Its max­i­mum an­gle of at­tack is also more ex­treme than ever.

At the front we can see a bon­net with a more square lead­ing edge, evok­ing the pro­file of clas­sic gen­er­a­tions pre­dat­ing the curved lip of the 991. For all the break­ing 992 news as it hap­pens on Oc­to­ber 11th, keep an eye out on To­tal911.com.
