2012 Porsche 911 (991) Carrera Caught Completely Undisguised: Spy Shots

by Alex

The 2012 Porsche 911 (991) Carrera was once again caught exposed. The latest spyshots reveals the new model completely undisguised. The spy photographers managed to take these shots on the same street where a red 991 Carrera S was spotted last week close to the Porsche factory in Stuttgart.

These new photos presents a new car with the same design philosophy, which is has not changed a bit. Porsche wants more subtle design changes for this car, rather than a ground-breaking rethink. Still, some details changed: new LED detailing at the front is inspired by the 918 Spyder concept, at the back the number of openings in the engine cover has been reduced from five to three, which isn’t such a big change, but at least it’s something.

Also, a more important change is the wheelbase, which has been lengthened with the front and rear overhangs reduced to minimise the increase in overall length. At 4491mm long, 1873mm wide and 129mm high, the new 991 will be 56mm longer, 65mm wider and 11m lower than the 997.

The 2012 Porsche 911 (991) Carrera is powered by a 400bhp version of the 3.8 liter flat six found in today’s 380bhp Carrera S. The entry-level Carrera model is powered by a 3.4 liter flat six rather than a 3.6. It produces more power than today’s 997, going from 341bhp to 350bhp. Another difference between the Carrera models is the twin exhaust pipes at the rear. The Carrera S models get quad pipes.

Price: will probably be around $80,000
Specs: will debut at the IAA 2011 starting the second week of September
