New photos of the 2019 Porsche 911 have leaked ahead of its scheduled debut at the Los Angeles Auto Show.
The Porsche 992 is almost here, which means that it’s time to get some juicy leaks. The biggest leak comes from Jalopnik ahead of the 2019 Porsche 911’s debut at this year’s Los Angeles Auto Show.
Apparently, a Porsche insider manages to grab a few official press photos and get them posted on a Porsche forum, which then made their way to Jalopnik through a concerned viewer. Ever interested in protecting Porsche’s secrets, Jalopnik then posted said photos so that they wouldn’t be a secret anymore. Don’t have to worry about secrets that are already out in the open, right?
We apologize for the poor quality of the photos, but that's the way they came.
Pictured here is the 911 Carrera 4S, which is the top of the line Carrera in the 911’s byzantine lineup of trims and models. The changes between the 992 and 991-era 911s are subtle, with this update mostly focusing on the internal bits rather than the external.
On the outside, the Carrera gets new flush door handles, new side mirrors, and a new taillight bar that spans the whole width of the rear, which is looking much meatier thanks to some wider rear fender flares. That used to be a feature on the 911 Turbo models, but now every 911 is getting some beefier haunches.
From previous leaks and rumors we’ve been told that the 911 will get the new Panamera’s 8-speed dual-clutch transmission and matrix LED headlights. The cockpit is also expected to get the Panamera’s big infotainment screen and digital instrument cluster (or at least something close to it).
According to Motoring, the Carrera 4S is getting a 29 horsepower bump on its 3.0-L twin-turbo boxer six engine, which sends it from zero to sixty in less than 4 seconds. The Turbo S will reportedly have over 630 hp, although it’s still unknown if it will retain the 4.0-L flat-six or if it will get some turbochargers to go along with it.
All models are expected to get adaptive cruise control, lane keeping, and lane departure warning, as well as optional night vision.
We’ll learn more when the new 911 debuts next week at the LA Auto Show.
