Can you see the differences between the current model and the 2019 Porsche 911? Despite Porsche just launching the new turbocharged flat-six engine lineup (save for the GT3, of course) and the 991.2 911, the German automaker is very much at work on that car’s successor.
Thanks to spy photographers we’re looking at the 2019 model and yes, it’s still butt-engined. That kind of thing will never change. These two 2019 911 test mules have a production-spec bodies. At first sight, yeah, they look a lot like the current model, but there are differences.
Here’s what is different between the current model and 2019 Porsche 911
The front hood now goes straight down to the bumper, a design characteristic from the old air-cooled 911s. This 911 is definitely a bit wider than it is now so no, your eyes aren’t fooling you. Also pay attention to the rear end, maybe the most intriguing thing going on here. The lighting design seems to be inspired by that one featured in the Mission-E Concept. The new rear spoiler is also much wider than before, almost going over the entire rear.
When you pay close look at the sides you will find out new door handles. Just to mention that there are two different test mules pictured here, one has the optional sports exhaust system and other likely being the standard S model.
This is also the first time a 911 to offer a hybrid setup, which was clear that will happen at some point in this generation’s existence. Sources tell this is a 2019 model, so it’s possible Porsche to make debut to its all-new 911 at the 2019 Frankfurt Motor Show. Expect to see more spy shots up until then as well as additional details about the car’s specs. Stay tuned!
