2023 Porsche 911 Turbo update spied

The 992-generation Porsche 911 has been snapped testing with a slightly updated front end, even though we haven't seen all the pre-facelift variants just yet.

Porsche hasn’t finished rolling out pre-facelift versions of its latest 911, but it’s already gearing up to give its iconic sports car a mid-life nip-and-tuck.

Our spy photographers have snapped what looks like an updated version of the 911 Turbo testing in Germany, wearing the sort of mild tweaks you’d expect of an update to the 911.

Up front, there’s what appears to be a new radar pod built into the lower front bumper, and there are new vertical vanes in its outer edges. They’re likely part of the car’s sophisticated active aerodynamics system.

There’s more camouflage on the rear end, and the light bar looks slightly different to that of the current car.

It’s not clear what will change under the skin, but the 911 Turbo doesn’t need more power. Even the base Turbo has 428kW and 750Nm from its turbocharged 3.8-litre flat six engine, while the Turbo S ups that to 478kW and 800Nm.

Both cars are all-wheel drive, and put their torque to the road through an eight-speed dual-clutch transmission.

Porsche has almost completed the rollout of 992-generation 911 variations. Having launched with the Carrera, Carrera 4, and Carrera S variants, the range has since expanded to include the Targa, Turbo, GT3, and GTS versions.

We’re still awaiting the reveal of the 911 GT3 RS, which has been spied wearing an even more aggressive aerodynamics kit than the already wild GT3.
