Weeks ahead of its release, the new 992-generation of Porsche Turbo S has broken cover.
A production variant of the upcoming 992 Turbo S has been leaked on Instagram by @cochespias – weeks before it’s due to be released.
The 992 is expected to retain the current 991-generation’s 3.8 litre twin turbocharged flat-6 engine, and rumours predict power figures will sit at around 477kW (640hp) – which mated to an eight-speed PDK and driving all four wheels, is expected to hit 100km/h in under 3 seconds. Porsche previously announced that no mild-hybrid system or any form of electrification will be present.
The front-end remains largely unchanged from the 992 Carrera S, with only minor noticable differences being the painted horizontal slats and a larger central air-inlet to keep the radiators and brakes cool.
This red example features lightweight multi-spoke wheels painted satin-black, and a new ‘911 turbo S’ sticker on the side – so just in case you were wondering… yes, this is a Turbo S.
The rear half is perhaps where the differences have been made clear, and the first thing you’ll notice is the lip spoiler. However, unlike previous Turbo and Turbo S models, the new 992’s lip spoiler is able to extend upwards when required to generate extra downforce.
Again, similar to previous generations, the air-inlet behind the doors channel air straight into the intake manifold, where it gets turned into power and is exhaled through a complex exhaust system. We hope the new one sounds good.
The 992 Turbo and Turbo S are expected to hit Australian showrooms in the fourth quarter of 2020.
