So after a video of the yet-to-revealed Porsche 991 Facelift emerges offering a good look at the car’s new styling features, Porsche went ahead and released a few pictures of the car being tested in South Africa wearing light camo. So you can think of this as an official teaser.
As we saw in the spy video yesterday, Porsche 991 Facelift comes with substantial changes to its styling, mostly around the back. The biggest highlight, and the first thing you’ll notice, is the new engine cover which is reminiscent of the hood on early 911 model and looks, in our opinion, pretty cool. It is complemented with a new rear bumper featuring large air vents and a revised diffuser with central tailpipe arrangement, which is a first for the Carrera.
Thinks are less dramatically altered at the front where the only difference compared to the current version is slightly modified air intakes in the front bumper. The same can be said about the interior, although the car does come with a new 918-inspired steering wheel and a larger infotainment screen.
As for the mechanical upgrades Porsche 991 Facelift may benefit from, we best refrain from speculating as we shall soon find out all about it. The new 911 is almost certainly set for debut at the 2015 IAA in September, which means it will be unveiled sometime in the middle of next month.
