Exterior

That doesn’t mean they’re not there, even if Porsche has tried to hide the tweaks behind wraps and fake decals. One of the first things we noticed on the 911 Convertible prototype were the redesigned door handles.

At the rear, the bumper is re-sculpted and the tail lamps will get new graphics, while further up, the engine grille has more classic-looking inserts. A few other styling revisions that we expect to see on the final production car is a restyled front bumper, updated headlamps, and new LED daytime running lights.

Powertrain

The current 911 Turbo is already an incredible performance machine. The Turbo produces 520 horsepower and is capable of 3.0 second 0-60 mph sprints with the Sport Chrono package. If that’s not enough, the Turbo S version bumps the output to 560 horses and acceleration time falls a tenth to 2.9 seconds. Is it possible to make the 911 accelerate faster or perform better than this? If anybody can do it, it would the folks from Stuttgart.
