2016 Porsche 911 (facelift) spy shot

2016 Porsche 911 (facelift) spied undisguised

July 16, 2015

The 2016 Porsche 911 (facelift) has been spied testing in Prague, Czech Republic, courtesy of Facebook fan page cossie670. The 991-generation model’s facelift’s spy shot reveals that the rear-end has been modified with a tweaked bumper, reshaped vents, restyled LED tail lights, new-style air intake grille on the engine lid and dual centre-mounted tailpipes.

Not every change here is for sure going to be seen on the production version, as companies often use fake design/parts on test mules as a disguise.

A report released in May said that apart from visual changes on the exterior, the facelifted 911 range will have an improved cabin and include more turbocharged models. Wolfgang Hatz, R&D boss at Porsche, indicated that the naturally aspirated flat-six engines of some models could gain turbochargers with arrival of the facelift. Addition of turbochargers, apart from improving performance, could also help gain ground in efficiency.

The mid-cycle update will bring into the car, the latest generation Porsche Communication Management (PCM) touchscreen infotainment system. 7-speed Porsche Doppelkupplung (PDK/dual-clutch) transmission equipped models should gain the multi-function steering wheel offered on the Macan.

The facelifted 2016 Porsche 911 is said to debut at the 2015 International Motor Show (IAA) in Frankfurt in September.
