- New Porsche 911 (Porsche 991)
As we approach the new Porsche 911 official debut next month, Porsche has released this video of the new Porsche 911, known as the Porsche 991, undergoing cold-weather testing. This Porsche video shows engineers putting the new Porsche 911 through its paces in the Arctic Circle in temperatures as chilly as -24ºF.
Sound like a fruitless exercise for a sports car? Think again. Such testing procedures are essential to ensure the Porsche will operate as intended in every climate, otherwise Porsche 911 owners in snowy climes could find themselves stranded. It’s not all hard work, though: the video reveals that Porsche engineers also spent plenty of time drifting the new Porsche 911 sideways in densely packed snow.
As we saw in the leaked images, the new Porsche 911 has a profile that is elongated compared to the current car, LED running lights in the front bumper, shrunken LED taillight designs, and a raised center stack that resembles that of the Porsche Panamera.
The Porsche 991-generation 911 makes its official debut at the Frankfurt Motor Show in September. Until then, check out the video below for an early peek at the new sports car.
