Last week Car had heaps of Porsche information and one thing to grabbed our attention was the claim the new 991 911 will run for two seven-year model cycles. That will take the basic chassis structure, launched at Frankfurt last month, up until 2025. With the added support of Volkswagen the pace of model development […]
The last visual details of the forthcoming 991.2 facelift for the Porsche 911 have been revealed in a video leaked to Porsche-based Rennteam forum. In the grainy video stills we can see the BBQ-style rear air intake at the rear and, for the first time, the Macan-like rear light detail. Official pics and information is […]
It’s been a bit over a month since we got an unhindered look at the facelifted Porsche 911 Carrera. Now, we’re getting a look at the 991.2 911 Turbo S, seen here driving around the Nürburgring. There’s revised styling at the front compared with the 2013 911 Turbo (pictured below), along with updated styling and […]
The 991.2 Porsche 911 is due to be revealed at the Frankfurt Auto Show in September, but an undisguised model was spotted lapping the Nürburgring industry pool session yesterday. And here it is! You’ll notice the revised styling at the front compared with the first gen 991 911 launched in 2011. Also, at the rear […]
We thank Instagrammer johan9ff for bringing the world an early glimpse of what appears to be a production-ready Porsche 911 GT3 RS. We know the RS will feature a PDK transmission but engine specs are still unclear. Those air intakes on the rear wheel arches would indicate the engine is turbocharged. However, previous video evidence […]
We’ve been given one of the best looks yet at the 2015 Porsche 911 GT3 RS thanks to a series of patent drawings published by Car magazine. It appears as though almost every body panel will be unique to the GT3 RS. Starting with the dip in the bonnet and the vented front guards—remember we […]
Word has come through to AUSmotive that when the totally lustful new Porsche 911 GT3 goes on sale in Australia later this year it will carry a list price of $294,000. That price includes the front-axle lift system, which we understand will be standard equipment for the local market. Compared with the old 997.2 911 […]
Andreas Preuninger, Head of GT Cars at Porsche, knows a thing or two about the new 911 GT3. He’s just been interviewed about the car by Jethro Bovingdon from Evo magazine. In his introduction Bovingdon says, “If you’re a Porsche geek you will love this.” He was right.
The Rennlist forum has come up trumps with some excellent, and hopefully reliable, details on the new 991-based Porsche 911 GT3. The information comes from an anonymous source who claims to have met Porsche engineers at the workshop you see above. In dot point form here is what our new best friend was allegedly told: […]
Just a few weeks after telling us we’d need to wait until 2014 to see a new Porsche 911 RSR, Stuttgart has announced they’ll be racing two new factory-backed 991-based 911 RSR machines in the 2013 World Endurance Championship. Of course, this also includes the 2013 Le Mans 24 hour race (22–23 June). It will […]
A trio of barely disguised prototype 991 Porsche 911s have just been spied in Spain. Two of them appear to be the next-generation 911 GT3. The front splitter, centre-exit exhaust and rear wing being the most obvious styling cues. It looks as though the new GT3 will run 245/35/20s up front and 305/40/20s at the […]
