2023 Porsche 911 Carrera Coming With Sharp New Look

To those who aren’t hardcore Porsche 911 fanatics, it may seem like there have been a number of recent articles covering spy shots of the same model, but in fact, the German automaker has been refreshing its entire 911 range. Some models are making a return while others are all-new. At one end of the spectrum, Porsche is working on the mad, track-focused GT3 RS, but at the other exists the base 911 Carrera.

 

 

That’s the model that our spy photographers have captured most recently, and the images show that the entry-level 911 will be getting a comprehensive collection of visual changes.

 

 

Although the overall shape will likely never change, Porsche does like playing with fascias, and this new imagery shows that active aerodynamics will be a noteworthy upgrade for the 992.2 911. Those shuttered grilles in the front bumper look rather awkward at present, but we’re sure that they’ll look more refined as the production-spec 911 draws nearer. We’ve spotted similar shutters on the new Macan EV that is also currently undergoing development testing, so it’s definitely going to be an identifying characteristic that will make spotting a facelifted model a lot easier.

 

 

Also interesting on this specific prototype is that the exhaust looks very similar to that found on the Cayman GT4/Boxster Spyder/GTS 4.0. Furthermore, an inside source at Weissach claims the facelifted 992 911 will indeed get the 4.0-liter naturally aspirated engine found in those mid-engined models. We’ll see.
