Porsche is close to revealing the eight-generation (992) Porsche 911, so much so that it has decided to drop a teaser video on its Facebook page, which hints at an imminent world debut.

As with all official teasers, the 12-second-long clip gives very little in the way of details, but prototypes of the upcoming 911 have already been spotted multiple times in varying guises, one even featuring the outgoing 991.2 and the new 992 side by side on a road test. Suffice to say, we have a pretty good idea of how the succeeding model will look like, and it’ll be more of an evolutionary design approach.

In the video, it’s clear that the 992-gen 911 will get a full-length rear LED strip, as well as a revised front fascia with four-point LED headlights and horizontal LED DRLs. For a clearer picture of what it could potentially look like, perhaps the spy photo below will help paint a better picture.

As you can tell, the previous visual cues apply here – a set of more squared-off air intakes reside in each corner of the front bumper, while horizontal strakes within the rear bumper vents take after the front intakes.

Powertrain details have yet to be confirmed, though the main Carrera models with the 3.0 litre turbocharged flat-six are most likely to resume service. Likewise, both manual and dual-clutch automatic transmissions are expected to feature, as are both rear- and all-wheel-drive layouts. The seven-speed manual and PDK dual-clutch transmissions should also soldier on.

No further images of the 992 model’s interior this time, though we have previously seen that it will employ a layout similar to those applied to the latest Cayenne and Panamera, which for the driver, will feature instrumentation with a larger central tachometer flanked by a pair of digital screens (Advanced Cockpit).
