    • Practically production ready 2020 Porsche 911 Carrera S spotted testing - 992 Carrera and Carrera S expected specifications

      Well, this is just about as uncovered of a 992 as we are going to see until the real thing is revealed by Porsche. How does it look? Well, guards red is an excellent color which really brings out the designs elements and plays well against the black trim.


      Porsche is going back to a 993 influence which you can see in the hood and connected rear light bar. It is almost as if they are running out of ideas as to how to keep updating the styling as what will the next 911 do? Go back to the 991 style disconnected lights?

      Regardless, it is elegant and instantly recognizable as a 911. The exhaust tips integrated into the rear diffuser provide a nice bit of aggression.

      As for power, expect a mode a bump for the 3.0 liter 9A2B6 engine. The Carrera is expected to go from 350 to 384 horsepower and the Carrera S from 420 to 443 horsepower. It is unknown if those gains will come from software alone or some actual engine hardware changes.

      The 992 is shaping up well thus far. Let's hope they get the interior right too.

        The ass looks fat and I like it. The connected rear lights/bar looks good to me and seems to be a common design cue for new cars now (New Audi A/S/RS7 did the same among others).

        I'll pass on the rear wiper, the adaptive cruise control. Love the side markers, the hood and the GT2RS inspired rear bumper. Cannot wait to see the tail lights.

        I sht you not, I swear I just followed one of these on the A8 near Stuttgart today for a couple miles. The rear light looked pretty trick - very “Tron-like”.

        I believe you. I ran into an F10 M5 tester once and surprisingly saw BMW testers all the time back in college. Guess they liked the Malibu canyons.

        BMW does most of their fuel mileage testing in SoCal. Farrah says they drive by his Venice house on an almost daily basis.
