Porsche to Refresh 911 for 2015 Model Year

By | May 19, 2014
Porsche's flagship 911 may be receiving some changes for the new model year, including a facelift, new model, and some mechanical tweaks. Autocar managed to capture some shots of the newest model testing on the Nurburgring in Germany featuring a more angular front bumper and slimmer LED DRLs. It's suspected that the automaker may also include active front air ducts to the updated 911 to improve aerodynamics. The rear bumper also gets some tweaks in the way of a horizontal air duct to pull air from the engine bay. This has caused many to think that what was captured could be a future successor to the 911 GTS. We expect power to come in the form of either a naturally aspirated 3.6- or 3.8-liter flat six, with horsepower estimates that come in around 425.
There have been talks of the new model possibly being powered by a four-cylinder engine to improve fuel economy to meet with regulations, but so far Porsche has denied those claims, as it will launch in the Cayman and Boxter models. As we gather more information on the new 2015 Porsche 911, we'll be sure to pass it along. Source: Autocar UK
