A fleet of Porsches testing abroad reveals a new story today. An automotive blog has spy pictures of facelifted 991 generation 911s and among these was one unique looking convertible indicating a new model may be coming up.
The famed Porsche 911 range has a total of 16 models and they are all set to expand it to 20 with the addition of GTS, GT2, GT3 RS, and the Speedster. However, the spy pictures suggest Porsche could be looking at one more model to fill the 911 range.
The spotted model has unique centrally mounted twin tail pipes set a little too far which is a little strange. The GT3 is the only 911 that has centrally mounted twin pipes but they are set closely. The report on the blog suggests Porsche hasn’t confirmed any plans for a convertible GTS. This gives us food for thought on whether this could be an entirely new model or an unfinished prototype of the rumoured 911 Speedster.
We feel this could be a prototype of an all-new model from the Stuttgart-based sports car maker. A couple of common questions arise in every Porsche fan’s mind, isn’t the 911 range a little crowded? Will the introduction of another model dilute the essence of the legendary 911 range? We feel, the current 911 range, is a snug fit, and each model has its aura and purpose in the line-up, unless Porsche introduces something radically different. However, the second question can be answered only after a confirmation from the manufacturer on a new model and its purpose.
