Motor Trend Releases Spy Photos of Next Gen 911

Eight Generation Sports Car Shows Gradual Evolution

As the Porsche 911, generally considered the premier affordable sports cars in the world, continues its natural evolution, Motor Trend magazine has released some spy photos of the upcoming eighth generation. Unless you look at the current model and the new version side by side, the changes are hard to discern, but the next step in the 911 progression has a more angular hood that takes a steeper nose dive than ever before. It may be another year before the new 911 shows up on the showroom floor at Porsche of Tucson. Until then there’s plenty of 911 inventory from which to choose for a test drive and ride home to your garage.

New 911 Longer and Wider

The new 911 appears to be longer and wider than the current model, with a rear spoiler that is definitely larger, spanning the entire width of the rear from taillight to taillight. Rear side vents are also larger, perhaps signaling the use of the new Porsche 3.0L twin turbo engine. The vents on the top of the rear engine bay are also larger, reaching all the way to the edge of the window. Expect the new 911 to have a hybrid option as Porsche continues to push toward more electrification. Porsche chairman Oliver Bloom said the company will continue to embrace the history of this iconic brand, while offering more modern options for future drivers. “For the simple reason that electrification still carries a substantial weight penalty, sports cars will hold on to classic propulsion solutions a little longer than other vehicle types,” he told Car magazine. “But even the 911 must eventually adjust, and according to analysts and the media, even plug-in supercars are making headway.”

911 Provides Continuity for More Than 50 Years

The Porsche 911, in all its various forms and models, has been providing the world with a true sports car that’s also an everyday driver since 1963. The 911 is closing in on 1,000,000 vehicles delivered worldwide, making it both an iconic piece of history and one of the most successful auto brands ever created. Starting out with just a 130 horsepower six-cylinder engine, the Porsche 911 has evolved into a 500-horsepower monster if you choose the $175,000 GT3 RS model. Even if you choose the most base Carrera model, you still get 370 horses that take you from 0-60 mph in just 4.4 seconds. That’s on the way to a top track speed of 183 mph. The Porsche 911 is one vehicle that’s just as at home on the track as it is on a Saturday night ferrying a couple to the opera. See the entire Porsche lineup and treat yourself to a test drive of the 911 by taking a trip to Porsche of Tucson.
