Porsche has released the first official teaser photos of the 2019 Porsche 911 (992), which is expected to debut later this year. The teaser photos reveal a camouflaged prototype, but Porsche is still keeping most of the details under wraps. Instead, accompanying the teaser photos, Porsche hints at what we can expect from the new 911 and at the end of the day, not much will change.
We know where we’re from and where we want to go,” stated leading engineer August Achleitner. “The decisive factor is that the 911 generates a driving feeling that no other car can impart.”
Yes the new 911 will be all new, but as Porsche explains, it won’t feature an electrified powertrain, but there isa chance that it could arrive later. The next-generation 911 will retain the same shape that has made the 911 so iconic, inside is where the bigger changes will happen. The dashboard will look far more modern than the current model thanks to a large center digital screen, that’s similar to the one offered in the new Cayenne and Panamera. 911 fans don’t have to worry though, since Achleitner hints that it was important that the new digital display looks as timeless as possible.
The new 911 will also feature new driving assistance technologies, but don’t worry a fully autonomous 911 isn’t in the cards. The 911 “will always have a steering wheel.”
It’s expected that the new 911 will debut this fall at the Paris Motor Show. We did recently see a leaked photo of the new 911 as well.
