Snapped: Next Porsche 911

These are the first clear images of the all-new Porsche 911, due for release some time in 2011.

Compared with the current model, the front lights on the new car will be more upright, while the side mirrors have been moved from the corner of the side mirror to the side of the door.

But there are several red herrings to throw us off track. 

Ignore the fake side air intakes in front of the rear wheels (it's not a 911 Turbo) and the oversized rear wing to hide the shape of the standard 911's smaller spoiler. The rear lights seen here are temporary, too.

According to reports, the next generation 911 will feature a variation of the flat-six engine with a power boost and the new PDK dual-clutch gearbox.
