Recently, both the new 2016 Porsche 911 Turbo and the updated Type 991.2 models have been caught during testing. Thanks to the photographers who took pictures of these sports cars, you can see how the future models will look like.
2016 Porsche 911 Carrera
The Type 991.2 model, mentioned in this article, is an upgraded and improved version of the Type 991, which first appeared at the Auto Show in Frankfurt back in 2011. This prototype (photo below) will serve as a basis for the future 2016 Porsche 911 Carrera.
I’ve modified the photos just a little bit, so perhaps it is more difficult to notice, but the images in the gallery below clearly shows that the front of the Type 991.2 has been refreshed with the daytime running lights and new air intakes below them.
The car is quite low, with an elongated front end and roof that slopes gently to the rear. I’m not sure, but it seems to me that nothing was changed on the back of the car, except for the addition of new air intakes on the bumper.

There’s nothing much to say about the facelifted Turbo variant, since it is very similar to the vehicle described above. Front of both cars look almost the same.
The 2016 Porsche 911 Turbo (photo above) also comes with refreshed daytime running lights and new air vents in both front and rear bumpers. The only noticeable difference is the rear is addition of the rear spoiler that gives the car a more sporty look.
No details regarding the engine and performance of these cars, but the addition of air intakes suggests that both coupes might feature an active grille function to improve fuel economy. I am sure that the upgraded engine will be able to produce more than current 560 horsepower.
If rumors are true, the new 2016 Porsche 911 and all of its variants (base, Turbo, convertible) might be introduced in late 2014 or in the first quarter of 2015. All models will go on sale by the end of 2015 or in early 2016.
It is still early to say anything about price, but you could expect it to range between $150,000 and $200,000. This is just my guess. Just for comparison, the current Turbo’s price starts at $149,250, and the S model is priced at $182,050.
In the photo gallery below, you can see some spy shots of both 2016 Porsche 911 models. Unfortunately, it is difficult to say anything about the interior of these cars, because these images don’t reveal anything.
