2012 Porsche 911 Spy Video

Follow Viknesh

Easily one of the most anticipated cars of the year, the brand new 2012 Porsche 911 is set to be unveiled in front of audiences at this September’s 2011 Frankfurt Auto Show. However, you don’t have to wait until then to get a feel for how the new car will look on the road, or at the track, as this exclusive spy video shows a prototype with only minimal camouflage gear.

The video shows the base 2012 Porsche 911 Carrera model, both in Coupe and Cabriolet bodystyles, testing at Germany’s Nurburgring circuit. 

The new car looks very similar to its predecessor but it sits much lower and appears to be slightly wider too. As for engine, this has  been one of Porsche’s best kept secrets. The current thought is that it will feature a slightly downsized 3.4-liter flat-six engine but with an output similar to the 997 Carrera’s output of 345 horsepower.

  1. Still looks like a bull frog to me. Way too much hype about a car that still looks the same. Not for me.

  2. I agree that the 911 may not be the best sports car for the money, but there's something special about it still. Whenever I see the famous 'Turbo' lettering on a 911 I feel that excitement you get whenever you see a supercar.

    I do, however, feel that it's starting to look and feel like a VW Group model. Hate the tacky daytime running lights on the newer models, and the interior is starting to smack of parts pin stuff.

    The standard Carrera is a bit lame though, more of a show off car IMO for doctors or rich lawyers. I also think Porsche makes far too many special editions. They should just stick to the base Carrera, Carrera 4, Turbo, GT3, GT2 and the S and RS variants of these.. No lame clubsport and GTS and Black editions please.
