The recent Porsche 911 is definitely considered one of the most elite sports car to grace the roads worldwide. The task of producing its successor is challenging enough for the German automobile manufacturer but it now has to put up with rendered images of the next-generation Porsche 911 due to be unveiled in 2019, likely coded as the "922".
Late last month, 2019 Porsche 911 prototypes were seen braving the cold and snow for a run, sporting a variation of the current car frame's 911 series. From the spy photos seen online, the upcoming replacement of the 911 looks to lean towards the further evolution in terms of its body style.
The front part of the super car is diving forward and is more angular, and its headlights and hood closely resemble the upcoming Mission E fully electric vehicle Porsche unveiled at the 2015 Frankfurt motor show. The Porsche Mission E, also known as the all electric 4 door sports car, has been given the go signal for production and will be the first official fully electric hybrid Porsche. It’s also unlikely to be the last.
The German manufacturer exclaimed to the car enthusiasts that the Mission E will pass 62mph in less than 3.5 seconds, pushing past 124mph in record time. Top speed of the Mission E is declared to be around 155mph. Now back to the 922. Trazione Posterior released two renderings on how the 992 will look like, with all its upgrades. The most evident change reflected is that it has a wider track than the 911, an indicator of the 922's brand new platform. The most evident change for the new-gen sports car is the rear itself. The taillights are connected and can be observed as one long strip light that follows the curve of the rear's spoiler edge.
Exhaust tips are set slightly closer to the rear bumper center. What's also changed is the bonnet's design which is seen all the way to the front the car bumper. Also the rear quarter's window's edge has been hidden, possibly indicating a change in the traditional design. It is expected as well that new exhausts, air vents and different engine covers will be added to the list.
Next-gen 911 may possibly have an available carbon splitter closely resembling the Porsche 918 Spyder, and it will definitely keep its distinct round headlights. However, the front lights’ shape may be slightly modified and will surely adopt different inner and daytime running lights. From the earlier prototypes, it is known that the 922 will be slightly wider than the recent car as seen by the obvious wheel arch extensions.
The latest reports indicate that the next-gen 911 is going to be unveiled in 2018, probably in Carrera and Carrera S form and should be made available as 2019 models. There’s no doubt that this is one sports car that enthusiasts are excited to get their hands on soon.
