SPIED: 911 boost looms

A facelifted Porsche 911 is on its way (AUTOMEDIA)

As can be seen in our exclusive shots of an almost undisguised prototype, Porsche seems to be almost ready with developing the facelift of the current 911-range.

We expect the car to make its official debut at the Frankfurt Motor Show later this year.

While we can be sure that the normal 911 coupé and the soft-top will receive the facelift, it remains uncertain whether or not the makeover will as well be done to the brand-new 911 Turbo and the yet-to-be-released Turbo Cabrio.

While the cabin might get a bit of polish, too, we still believe that power will continue to come from the current 3.6- or 3.8-litre flat-six with an output of 241kW and 264kW respectively.

Exterior modifications will include a new layout for the headlights and totally new taillights as well as a re-designed front bumper with air-intakes appearing more aggressively, strongly reminding of those of the new 911 Turbo. Finally, the rear bumper will be modified, too.
