Porsche 911 facelift camofree 4

Finally, we are seeing the 2016 Porsche 911 facelift in all its glory. It has just been spotted doing the rounds at the Nurburgring with absolutely no camouflage at all. The rumour mill is in overdrive, and it seems from the simple Carrera to the Turbo S, all 991 models are going to be turbocharged. The GT3 and GT3 RS could be the only models to remain naturally-aspirated.

Rumours are that the updated 991 line-up will feature at least two new turbocharged, flat-six engines. Speculations point to the Carrera version utilising a 2.7 litre engine producing 400 hp, while the Carrera S will have a larger, more powerful 3.4 litre motor.

The interior of the 911 should also be significantly updated, with a new steering wheel and refreshed infotainment system. There are reports that this 911 will use the 918 Spyder’s steering wheel, a bigger display for the infotainment system and a toggle switch mounted on the right-hand side.

It has a new front end that looks quite like the Cayman GT4. There are also updated headlights, thin LED DRLs, new door handles, revised hood over the engines with a lot of vents, an updated rear bumper with new vents and central exhaust pipes too.

It is believed that a public debut for this model is set for mid-September at the Frankfurt Motor Show, and sales will likely begin shortly thereafter.
