992 takes to the ‘Ring
Next-gen 911 looks to set Nordschleife time ahead of 11 October reveal
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.
