Porsche 991.2 911 in testing

Following last week’s scooped images captured by Bridge to Gantry, Autocar brings us a gallery of images showing the Porsche 991.2 911 undergoing testing in South Africa. The images have been supplied by Porsche, although as yet not via their usual media outlets.

Technical details are being kept under wraps for now, even if the cars are not. So at this stage we can really only point to cosmetic changes to the front and rear bodywork, wing mirrors and the like.

We can bring your attention to the fact that a manual gearbox will still be available and that there will be (a no doubt optional) steering-wheel mounted controller to switch between four driving modes.

And, of course, we know the entry level Carrera and Carrera S models will be turbocharged. It appears as though there’s some debate over the capacity of the flat six engines.

We reckon it’ll be a 2.7 litre in the Carrera making something like 275kW (up from 257kW) and a 3.0 litre for the S with around 310kW (up from 294kW).
