is out testing a new generation of the , the 992, and the latest prototype spotted is for the car’s variant.

The new 911 will be revealed late this year or early next, initially in Carrera and Carrera S guises.

The 911 Turbo should trail the basic models by six months to a year. We expect it to go on sale in the United States late next year as a model.

The prototype may look like testers for the Carrera Cabrio. However, a number of clues identify it as the Turbo Cabrio.

The pumped fenders are housing a widened track, while the gaping hole in the flanks and the cooling vents at either side of the rear fascia indicate an engine with extra potency. This prototype still sports a pair of round exhaust tips but on the final model should be a set of quad-exhaust tips with a squared-off design.

The powertrain for the new Turbo will be a twin-turbocharged flat-6, as was the case for its predecessors. With the current Turbo putting out 540 horsepower, expect this new one to have something in the 580-600 range. All-wheel drive and rear-wheel steering will be standard.

Though yet to be confirmed, it’s possible the Turbo S will pair an electric motor with the twin-turbo engine to deliver something approaching 700 hp. Recall, Porsche is once again open to electrifying the 911, and the next Turbo is a good starting point. It fits with Porsche’s top-down strategy for electrification, which has seen a hybrid powertrain used for the range-topping Panamera Turbo S E-Hybrid.

Other Turbo-spec upgrades over the Carrera should include stiffer suspension, carbon-ceramic brakes, and more complex aero.

Stay tuned for updates as development continues.
