A handful of fabulous photos of the next generation 2012 Porsche 911 have emerged. After almost two years of auto spies working hard throughout the period of testing that Porsche has been subjecting its prototypes to, these new photos finally give us a glimpse of a minimally camouflaged vehicle.
Enthusiasts are overjoyed that pictures of the Cabrio as well as the coupe prototypes were revealed. As far as details are concerned, it has been understood that the vehicle will have a stop/start system and also regenerative braking coming as a standard feature. Engines will also be upgraded, a revised 3.6 liter flat six producing 365 bhp (272 kW / 370 PS) and 400 Nm (295 lb-ft) of torque will start off the process; the Carrera S variant will get an updated 3.8 liter 6-cylinder power plant featuring 415 bhp (309 kW / 421 PS) and 440 Nm (325 lb-ft) of torque.
There will be a choice available between the six-speed manual transmission or the seven-speed PDK.
The shape of the 911 will stick closely with the iconic shape that is familiar to fans. There are some new details on the prototypes that were seen like the new design line that appeared in between the set of lights at the rear; and the new adjustable spoiler as well.
