Barely Disguised 2012 Porsche 911 Caught On Video

Follow Viknesh

The 2012 Porsche 911 is scheduled for its world debut at the 2011 Frankfurt Auto Show this September but barely disguised prototypes are currently running around the south of Germany as this latest video reveals. It shows one of the prototypes, a base Carrera model, on some roads near the automaker’s manufacturing facility in Zuffenhausen.

A previous video we saw revealed some subtle new details such as the Aston Martin style tail-lights and automatically retractable rear spoiler, but now we have a new video revealing even more details.

The new car, codenamed 991, looks very similar to its predecessor but it sits much lower and appears to be slightly wider too. Those muscular rear haunches are just mouthwatering.

As for the 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 345 horsepower. There could even be a seven-speed manual fitted.
