We just received a bunch of quite revealing spy shots showing the eagerly awaited next generation Porsche 911 Turbo Convertible with very little camouflage and - for the first time - with its top open. The new cabrio variant of the 911 (991 mark) is expected to debut by the end of the year as a 2013 model, but no official confirmation on the matter has been released by the German carmaker.
In the same fashion, there aren’t many details available as for which kind of engine will equip the new model. However, it is rumored that it will end up being a 3.8-litre horizontally opposed 6-cylinder unit with a tri-turbo setup that should be able to deliver something like 520 hp, and that will be mated to the well known 7-speed PDK dual clutch automatic transmission.
Aesthetically, this set of pics doesn’t say much more about the model than what we were able to see with the last two set of sneaky images we had seen, the ones taken during the car’s winter testing (check them out by clicking here and here), showcasing the new air outlets placed at the sides of the bumper, the two pairs of re-designed mufflers, the mobile rear wing and the new engine cover.
