The next Porsche 911 has been spotted in Cabriolet guise, revealing more of its design during early pre-production development. The 911's most distinctive visible feature is its slim light bar at the back. Elsewhere, the development cars takes small evolutionary steps from the current model - and the interior is expected to closely reflect that found in the second-generation Panamera. The 992 remains the same length as today’s 991 model, but the width of the car is set to increase slightly due to wider tracks. There’s also only a minor growth in wheelbase; Porsche grew the wheelbase dramatically for the current generation to create more interior space for rear seat passengers. 2019 Porsche 911 Cabriolet seen testing with new rear wing© Autocar 2019 Porsche 911 Cabriolet seen testing with new rear wing The 992 will be based on what is billed as a new modular sports car platform, although in reality it is similar to the current 991 platform. With a modified rear end, it will be used under the next-generation versions of the entry-level Boxster and Cayman models and could also influence the design and engineering of future Audi R8 and Lamborghini Huracán models. The eighth-generation 911 will have vastly improved active aerodynamics with a full-width rear wing. An active front spoiler is also a possibility, although this can’t be seen in these images. The future 911 range will come exclusively use turbocharged six-cylinder engines when it lands in 2019, including the GT3, marking the end of naturally aspirated units for the line-up. The GT3 will deliver more than 500bhp, while the standard models are set to get an extra 10-15bhp over today’s Carrera and Carrera S when they arrive in 2019.
