New facelifted Porsche 911 Turbo S spy shots have emerged before the car debuts later this year. This particular grey prototype was wearing thin camouflage across the front and rear but its refreshed interior was snapped sans-camo.
At the front, we can see from this particular test that new LED daytime running lights will be installed on the facelifted Porsche 911 range. Previous prototypes have also shown that adjustable horizontal slats in the front air intakes will be adopted. At the rear, camouflage is covering up the redesigned taillights but they too are pinned for an eye-catching re-design although it remains unclear just how comprehensive that refresh will be.
The most obvious interior change is the installation of a new three-spoke sport steering wheel. This new steering wheel bares immediate resemblance to the one from the Porsche 918 Spyder.
As a matter of fact, it even features the same circular toggle switch as the 918 Spyder which as it stands, is used to switch through the driving modes of the hybrid hypercar. While it remains to be seen what functions of the facelifted 2016 Porsche 911 this toggle switch will control, some suggest that it could operate the ‘Sport’ and ‘Sport Plus’ modes available for the 911.
Another change which is immediately noticeable for the facelifted Porsche 911 is the inclusion of a new multimedia system believed to be incorporating a touchscreen. Alongside the new display, different buttons and switches can be found on this tester.
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.
