2019 Porsche 911 Turbo S – Porsche is continuing to develop the next generation 911 Turbo by performing a test mule in Nurburgring. Despite the fact that we have already seen prototypes of the 992 generation bearing their production bodies, Porsche continues to hide the next Turbo under a current 991 body.
At the front, we can see some new LED spotlights and a redesigned trunk lid. The latter is no longer rounded around the edges and is narrower over the nose. The new design seems based on the original 911 and other air-cooled models, on which the cover extended into the bumper. Although the bumper is not yet finished and the vents appear to be similar to the previous model, expect to see new features once Porsche adds all the pieces to the puzzle.
There are not many changes to talk around the sides, except for the slightly redesigned rear wings, but the back section features a lot of new features. The taillights are thinner and seem to be based on the Mission E concept, while the retractable spoiler is larger than before and extends just above the tail lights. The hood grille and rear bumper have also been revised, but the final design is not yet visible in our latest spy hits. The coupe also carries new door handles, but more importantly, it’s wider than the outgoing version. This should lead to a more aggressive attitude, as well as to increased stability due to potentially greater avenues. As the current model, the next-generation car will also be available in convertible and targeted body styles. Naturally, the Carrera, Turbo and GTS models will have their own unique features on the outside.
The interior of the next 2019 Porsche 911 Turbo S is a complete mystery and this is where the 992 could differ considerably from the 991. Porsche is likely to rethink the entire dashboard and build a new center console with a more ergonomic button layout. The instrument group will also be revised, as will the steering wheel, which could be heavily based on the 918 Spyder’s. By the time the new 911 arrives, Porsche will also develop a new infotainment system, which will also offer a larger touch screen, improved connectivity and many exciting features to use on the track. The seats will also be redesigned to provide enhanced comfort and support when cornering. As with most redesigns, the 911 generation 993 should be shipped with improved and softer materials, new color combos for home furnishings and improved customization options. We should know more by the end of 2016 when prototypes almost ready for production should hit the road.
Power for 2019 The Porsche 911 Turbo S will come from the same 3.0-liter, double-turbocharged Flat-6 engine that began in 911 2017. Currently, the engine offers 370 horsepower and 331 lb-ft of torque in the Carrera and 420 hp and 368 lb-ft in the Carrera S.
It is obviously too early to talk about prices at this point, but given that the current 911 starts at $ 89,400, it is safe to assume that the next generation sports car will pick up close to $ 100,000 before the options. The 911 Turbo will cost at least $ 160,000, while the Turbo S could exceed $ 190,000.
