The next-generation Porsche 911 Turbo has been caught once more by our spy photographers. This time, the hotter 911 variant is seen testing in the icy conditions of the frozen north complete with the requisite equipment. Just like before, the 911 Turbo mule sports its production body featuring a fixed rear wing instead of a retractable one.

Like the car we spied earlier, this prototype highlights the evolutionary styling updates coming to the next-generation 911 lineup including the double LED daytime running light strips in the lower part of the front fascia. The headlights retain the same layout as the current model, with two stacked projectors surrounded by four smaller LED lamps.

Porsche explains brake squeal with informative video, says deal with it

  Porsche explains brake squeal with informative video, says deal with it In the German engineering equivalent of Reddit’s “Explain Like I’m Five,” Porsche tells its owners to stop worrying about noisy brakes and enjoy their fancy sports car.Porsche fits its sports cars with some of the best braking systems in the automotive world. Even its entry-level steel rotor setup on a base-model 911 would shame most full-blooded race cars of a decade ago but, like race brakes, they tend to make noise during normal operation. Porsche is apparently really tired of hearing over-monied enthusiasts whine about their squealing brakes so it made this helpful video to explain exactly why people should shut the h*ck up.

There also appear to be functional air intakes behind each door, which should help feed cool air to the engine. The wide rear fender flares hint at a possible staggered tire fitment with narrower rubber up front and meatier tires out back.

Powering the next-generation 911 Turbo should be a twin-turbocharged flat-six paired to Porsche's slick PDK dual-clutch transmission. Expect power figures to check in around 600 hp for the standard 911 Turbo. A more powerful 911 Turbo S should follow with even more power. Considering the 911 GT2 RS is already at 700 hp, it wouldn't surprise us if the next-generation Turbo S produced close to that.

Porsche 911 GT3 RS Facelift Spied Completely Free Of Camouflage .
We're expecting an official announcement from Porsche any day now. It was barely a week ago when we saw what was reported by Australia’s Drive as the new Porsche 911 GT3 RS. Wearing green with bold GT3 RS striping, it was a massive leak on what promises to be the most powerful naturally aspirated Porsche ever to come from Stuttgart. We still haven’t heard an official word from Porsche on the GT3 RS, but spy photographers have caught the car testing in snow without any camouflage. It’s got the same vents, same wheels, and yes, the same bonkers wing.
