Porsche is busy with the development of the new-gen 911. Speculated to be codenamed the 992, the new 911 was spotted undergoing tests all around the world, be it the hot weather testing in Arizona or the winter testing in the Lapland. The German carmaker has been able to successfully conceal the sports car in all its appearances. However, an image of the undisguised 992 911 has been leaked online by an oblivious Instagram user.
Although we only have the image of the rear end at the moment, the new strip of LED tail light running across the rear confirms it to be the new 911. The same was spotted on the test mules as well. The new tail lights are inspired by the Panamera and can also be seen on the new Cayenne. The wider wheel arches also conform to our various spy shots of the car. The quad-exhaust set-up integrated into the distinct bumpers were also seen on the previous sighting which means this could be a Carrera S trim and not a full-blown Turbo.
The new 911 is still a few months away from its global premiere. And judging by the nip-and-tuck still left on this leaked car (look at the misplaced Porsche logo), this car is still not production ready. Porsche will reveal the new 991.2 version of the 911 GT3 RS at the Geneva Motor Show as a swansong to the current gen 911. The year 2018 also marks the 70th anniversary of the Porsche brand. So this might be the best opportunity for the German marque to reveal the seventh gen 911 sometime later this year.
