New spy photos of the 2011 Porsche 911/998 show active aerodynamic devices fully deployed.
Clear-weather shots of what is likely the 2011 Porsche 911/998 caught in testing have surfaced, offering some new sneak peeks into what's in store for the iconic sports car. The latest shots, snapped outside of Porsche's Scandinavian test track, clearly show a small roof spoiler above the back glass.
Close inspection of previous spy shots shows a visible panel at this location, so it's clear that we're seeing the retractable roof spoiler in its extended position. The unusual camouflage at the back of the car is probably in place to allow the conventional retractable spoiler to deploy without pushing the body masking material out of place.
With the view uncluttered by snow, these new shots also show more of the car's longer, lower and wider form. The re-contoured hood has been tweaked to meet new safety regulations, and the LED daytime running lights that are the current automotive fashion trend can be seen as well.
Rumor has the 2011 911/998 getting a boost in power from its familiar flat-six engine range, and featuring Porsche's new seven-speed PDK dual-clutch transmission. A six-speed manual will also be offered.
