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.
