First official photos of the new Porsche 911 992 leaked & reveal date

The worst kept secret of the past decade is finally (un)officially revealed!

2y ago

Next generation Porsche 911 given the designation '992' is one of the worst kept secrets within the industry for the past few years. We've seen the photos of practically non-camouflaged prototypes back in summer, and even Porsche released prototype testing photos that left little to the imagination.

But regardless these are a little special, an anonymous tipster sent these 3 rather poor quality photographs over to Jalopnik, these seem to show the latest 911 in the Carrera 4s guise.

While it's nice to finally see these cars in full detail, you will have to look hard and close to spot any major differences between these and the prototypes.

Porsche announced on Friday that the next (8th) generation 911, will be revealed before the L.A Auto Show, on the 27th of November at en event in Carson, California. The Event will be live streamed and available to watch on Porsche newsTV site, at 8pm local time (Pacific Standard Time), 4am UK time and 5 a.m. in central Europe.

The above photos are official Porsche pictures published by Porsche below are photographs that were snapped earlier of the prototypes out in the wild.

  • Sorry, but the tailpipes look misplaced.

  • I wonder how much the designers get paid for not doing much

    • So true. Since decades they've been praying: we have to keep the iconic Porsche shape. Here you go!

  • It’s very difficult to comment on something that you’ve never driven. Aesthetically it looks nice. Underneath I’m sure it’s a masterpiece much like the others. From experience of owning a 997.1 and now a 991.2, I can tell you there is a massive difference between generations. Not just the development of the engine and chassis, but also the interior. Porsche are, and always have been at the peak of their game compared to other manufacturers. Which is the reason they attract so much positive and negative attention. The reason it hasn’t changed shape is because it’s an automotive icon. Which is more than can be said for what most people drive.

  • Great from the rear. Love the LED slit lights. Not sure about the front though. Too few front 3/4 images here that could really show it off well enough.

  • Yeah I’ve seen it like a hundred times in the past 12 months.
