The facelifted Porsche 991-generation 911 has been spied testing on multiple occasions in recent months. Now it has emerged that the new 911 range should launch at the Frankfurt Motor Show 2015 next September.

As is typically the case with facelifted models, some small styling tweaks will be present on the 991.2 range. Such changes will include revised bumpers both front and rear, adjustable front air intakes as well as revised LED daytime running lights. Tweaks to the headlights and taillights are also expected.

Beyond the small visual and aerodynamic modifications for the facelifted Porsche 991, an entirely new range of turbocharged six-cylinder engines are expected to arrive. These new engines will reportedly replace the existing range of naturally aspirated engines leaving the 911 range with just a single all-motor powerplant exclusively for the 911 GT3.

Set to power the facelifted Porsche 911 Carrera will be a turbocharged unit displacing less than 3.0-litres. Despite being smaller than the existing 3.4-litre engine, this new turbocharged engine should deliver about 15 hp more bringing the total figure up to 365 hp. This engine will reportedly be fettled by Porsche’s expert engineers for use in the Carrera S as well which should deliver about 415 hp compared to the current 400 hp.
