2020 Porsche 992 911 Turbo image leaks news

Next-gen 911 Turbo leak pops up on Instagram

The 992 Porsche 911 Turbo is on its way.

With an expected 2020 reveal, the next 911 Turbo has been spied testing recently, and now an image of it rolling along the production line has surfaced on Instagram.

Posted by self-proclaimed Porsche owner and enthusiast Todd Schleicher, the dual image features a 922-generation 911 looking rather aggressive from the rear three-quarter angle, with the second image simply a mirror of the first.

Previously, the 992 Porsche 911 Turbo S has been spied and filmed blasting around the Nürburgring in test mule form, with similar air intakes on the rear wheel arches as seen in this image.

The wing, however, is a primary point of difference between the two, and the biggest indicator that this may not be the full-fat Turbo S.

While the test Turbo S spied at the ‘Ring sports a rather wider adjustable wing, this spied model has a more lip-style spoiler.

The leaked image of the car, which looks to have been taken in Porsche’s Zuffenhausen facility, also seems to show the car sporting a wider rump than base 992 models like the Carrera.

Though it’s paintwork, likely Agate Grey, is causing reflections galore, its air intakes would require a pair of wider haunches compared to the intake-free Carrera.

If Porsche’s march of progress is to continue, the 992 911 Turbo will need to beat 3.0 seconds to 100km/h, with the 991.2 GT2 RS very much in its performance figure sights.

MOTOR contacted Porsche Australia for a statement, but Porsche’s local arm is unable to comment on the leak.
