2015 Porsche 911 GTS rear three quarters left

2016 Porsche 911 facelift detailed

May 21, 2015

A new report from Auto Express revels several details about the facelift of the 991-platform-based Porsche 911. The 2016 Porsche 911 range gets some minor changes in the exteriors, improved cabin and more turbocharged models. Noteworthy exterior changes on the front include restyled front bumpers with improved aerodynamics, re-modelled air intakes and thinner LED daytime running lights. At the rear, there’s a new exhaust system, with circular dual exhaust pipes mounted closer together.

The report says that Wolfgang Hatz, who is in charge of R&D at Porsche, has hinted that some of 911 models’ naturally aspirated flat-six engines could gain turbochargers with the facelift. As of now though, it remains unknown whether this move will bring a new base model with highest efficiency in the range or a more brutal Carrera S model.

The 2016 911 range will also gain the latest generation Porsche Communication Management touchscreen infotainment system. 7-speed PDK transmission equipped models are likely to feature the multi-function steering wheel offered on the 918 Spyder and Macan.
