While we have seen plenty of prototypes of the next-generation Porsche 911 (codename 992) in the past, a post by Instagram user ninastegmaier (which has since been deleted) could very well give us our first look at the finished product ahead of its official debut.

The image depicts the 911’s rear, which certainly appears significantly different from the one on the 991.2 series cars. For instance, the taillights are now joined by a horizontal strip that bears the ‘Porsche’ wording on them, similar to what you’ll find on recent models like the 718 (Cayman and Boxster) and Cayenne.

Elsewhere, the decklid design and lower section of the bumper are also unlike what you’ll find on the 991.2 cars. The quad exhaust setup you see here could point towards this being the Turbo variant, but nothing is set in stone yet.

With the sighting of “this” 911, the model certainly appears to be ready for a reveal, and the upcoming Geneva Motor Show in March might just be the venue to do so.
