What a surprise

Truly surprising for all people not directly involved in the project, Porsche seems to release a facelift for the current 911-range very shortly, as these pictures of prototypes of the coupé and cabrio – photographed in the U.S. earlier today – prove.

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.

In any case: the Targa – which has been released the same day we got these shots of the facelifted 911 – does not yet feature the modifications. 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 325 and 355 bhp 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.

Be part of something big
