Porsche is going full throttle with development of the next-generation 911, due around 2019, and the first spy shots have emerged of the newest 911 Turbo, likely due just months after the basic 911 bows. This prototype of the next-generation 911 Turbo remains in early development, so the typical Turbo spoiler isn’t yet in place, but sources say the familiar Turbo wing will be in place when the 911 goes into production in late 2018 or 2019. The 911 Turbo tester spied by photographers also showcases a massive brake set-up on the front and rear-ends — greater than anything seen on prior 911 prototypes. The Turbo is expected to be wider and will receive a straighter front skirt and a straight front edge to the hood, based on spy photos. The front wings will grow and will clasp around the headlights. The Turbo-typical horizontal air inlet in the bonnet will remain and so will the air-intakes behind the doors. Huge air-intakes in the front bumper, the extendable spoiler lip plus a pair of double daylight running lights will round out the 911 Turbo's exterior gear. Inside, the new Turbo might feature Audi’s digital Virtual Cockpit. The top-of-the-range Turbo S might crack the 600-hp barrier -- its rated at 580 today -- and will get pretty close to a time of 2.5 seconds for the 0-60 sprint.
