Next Porsche 991 snapped

Prototypes of the next-generation Porsche 911 were caught out in the cold while winter testing.

Called the 998, this car is expected to replace the current coupe and cabriolet range in 2011.

The cars have been "dolled up" to resemble the 911 Turbo, but these images show the side intakes in front of the rear wheels to be fake. The oversized rear wing disguises the shape of the standard 911's smaller spoiler, too.

These images suggest that, compared with the current 997, the head lights on the new model will be more upright and the side mirrors will have moved from the side window corner to the side of the door.

According to our spy photographers, the rear lights are just temporary.

It is expected that the next-generation Porsche 911 will feature the familiar flat-six engine and Porsche's praised PDK dual-clutch gearbox.
