Just about two weeks ago, the 2012 Porsche 911 was caught in a video while it was pulling out of a gas station in Germany, and today, official photos of the new 2012 Porsche 911 just got leaked over the Internet. And like other Porsche 911 models throughout the years, not much has been changed from its molded, classic look.
Although the 2012 Porsche 911 gets new LED running lamps and revised air intakes and thinner taillights in the rear end, it is still very similar to the current 997 Porsche 911. One thing hard to notice is that the 2012 Porsche 911 is about 2 inches longer that the current model.
However, under the hood of the 2012 Porsche 911 tells a different story. It features revised flat six-cylinder engines for all the Porsche trims. The base Carrera is now equipped with a 3.4-liter direct-injected flat-six engine delivering about 350 horsepower and 280 pound-feet of torque. And in the 2012 Porsche Carrera S, it features a direct-injected 3.8-liter engine delivering 400 horsepower. Both engines will be mated to a 7-speed manual transmission or an optional PDK dual-clutch transmission. Both transmissions are available with a launch control system.
As for the interior of the 2012 Porsche 911, it looks very similar to the Porsche Panamera; noticeable is the long center console.
Hopefully, the 2012 Porsche 911 will make its debut at the Frankfurt Motor Show, and we will have more details to you. So stay tuned.
