The facelift of the 992 generation Porsche 911 was spied during cold weather testing.
Our spy photographers captured both the convertible and coupe versions in snowy conditions with changes to the front bumper, headlights, rear bumper and taillights.
The updated front bumper sees a revised look compared to its predecessor.
The headlights on the convertible compared to the coupe look slightly different, though it’s possible that this difference is due to the haphazard nature of most development mules.
The daytime running lights and indicators also feature a refresh to their LED design. At the rear Porsche has updated the taillight design with a more minimalist approach.
The new bumper features a central exhaust, just below the license plate, similar to the Porsche 718, Spyder and GT4.
The air intake for the engine also looks updated.
While we are yet to see the full interior and dashboard of the facelift, there are some expected changes, including fully digital dials on the instrument cluster.
Porsche tends to expand its 911 range across the life cycle, offering multiple variants to cater to all types of customers.
The current generation comes in the form of the 911 Carrera, Carrera T, Carrera 4, Carrera S, Carrera 4S, Carrera GTS, Targa, Turbo, Turbo S, GT3, GT3 RS and Dakar, for reference.
We expect this new iteration to follow a similar template.
While we’re yet to see the latest on the rest of the range, it looks like Porsche will also add design updates to the Turbo, GT3, and Dakar in the 911 range, all of which have been spied in various test conditions over the past 12 months.
At this stage, it is unclear when the 992.2 generation will be released.
Porsche released the current generation of the 911 in 2019. The Carrera variant usually appears first, followed by the Turbo and Targa models, the GT3 variant, the Carrera GTS, and finally the track-focused GT3 RS.
