Todd Schleicher, a Porsche owner and enthusiast, has posted what are quite possibly the first images of the 2020 Porsche 911 Turbo 992 to make it public on his Instagram. And, boy, does it look amazing.
The car, which is believed to be strapped with a 3.8-liter, twin-turbo, six-cylinder engine, boasts a gray metallic finish and glossy black wheels. The rear wing, however, is less significant than the wider piece fitted to the 992 Turbo S prototypes that were exhibited on the Nürburgring recently.
It appears that the photos of this Porsche were taken inside an assembly facility while it was getting some finishing work done to its front-loading trunk, still clad in some paint-protecting covering on its sides.
With the new 911 Carrera S having launched in November, the Turbo variant could be presented at the Geneva motor show in March, but there's also the possibility of a wait until the Frankfurt show rolls around in September.
Given the specs mentioned above, coupled with an output of above the 540 horsepower and 487 pound-feet of torque produced by the 911.2-based model, this 911 is likely to be able to go from 0-60 in less than 2.9 seconds and hit a top speed of 200 mp/h.
It's also likely to boast eight-speed dual-clutch transmission, although purists would probably rather a seven-speed manual.
This Turbo is fitted with four square exhaust tips, an aggressive-looking lower fascia and the 992's wraparound taillights in the back. It's also expected that it will feature the latest Porsche Torque Vectoring, as well as electronically a standard controlled rear differential.
The S and Cabriolet variants should be made available before this 992 rolls out, though. Additionally, a hybridized Turbo is reportedly on the cards.
So while there's little in the way of news regarding an unveil date, the photos are very much appreciated.
Good looking out, Todd.
