Porsche has revealed its updated 911 with the release of official photographs showing the car undergoing testing.
A group of 911s can be seen negotiating roads in South Africa, wearing the model’s revised look in what Porsche calls the “991.2”.
Porsche devotees will be relieved (but not surprised) to learn that the 911 has picked up only minor changes to its iconic look, and the shape as always is unmistakeably 911.
Front styling shows revised headlights and LED daytime running lights, while the rear picks up a new bumper and perhaps some other changes. We say ‘perhaps’, because Porsches has used black tape in at least one of the pics to throw us off the scent.
All of the 911’s current body-styles are on show in the pics, including the coupe, targa and cabriolet, and Porsche is apparently quite keen to reveal a new feature for the driver.
A close-up of a switch on the restyled steering wheel reveals a four-way control showing ‘O’, ‘I’, ‘S’ and ‘S+’.
The interior also reveals Porsche’s ‘traditional’ multi-gauge setup with circular surrounds, along with a new infotainment screen and - thankfully for fans - a manual transmission.
The updated 911 is scheduled for an official unveiling at this year’s Frankfurt Motor Show, ahead of its arrival in local showrooms in Q1 next year.
