The current seventh generation Porsche 911 (991) was unveiled at the 2011 Frankfurt Motor Show and it is soon time for a facelift.
The prototype pictured here is a new 911 version, which is most likely called GTS with a debut expected for late 2014 or early 2015. It is also the first 911 prototype with facelifted lights.
2015 is reportedly the year when Porsche will introduce the updated 991.5.
The 911 GTS prototype caught yesterday has a camouflaged front and rear. The front bumper shows different air intakes and new LED daylight running lights. The bonnet is also camouflaged around the Porsche logo.
The biggest update is at the rear, where we can see new partly camouflaged tail lights.
Compared to the current 991 these new tail lights have a revised shape and graphic.
It is unlikely Porsche will change the lights for just a new GTS version. The camouflage clearly hints at a facelift coming in the near future.
The rear end with quad exhaust pipes is very similar to the new 911 Turbo. The previous generation 911 Carrera 4 GTS had a fixed rear wing, while the new model has a moving rear wing, which is in raised position on the prototype.
The 911 GTS will reportedly be placed underneath the standard 911 Turbo, but above the 911 Carrera 4S.
Exact power specs are purely speculative, but the 911 Carrera 4S packs 400bhp and the standard 911 Turbo delivers 520bhp.
Stay tuned for more details!
