the stranger next generation Porsche 911

I saw some photos of the ‘next’ 911 on Car Magazine‘s site earlier….and can’t help but find the new outline a little awkward.  That front end looks very upright, and the whole car looks quite a bit longer than the outgoing 997.  Whether this is simply an illusion doe to the way the photo was taken, or whether it’s real i’m not sure.  But i am sure that i’m not too sure that i like it!  We’ll have to wait til the camo comes off for the full view judgement.

2012 Porsche 911. it looks different!?

Well it doesn’t look that different, but there are some significant styling differences noticeable from these spy pics posted on Motor Authority.


The front nose is definitely higher, and the headlights are more upright, reminiscent of older 911s (ding ding….points for Porsche already!).  Supposedly this is due to stricter EU pedestrian safety laws, but I like to think it’s due to taking the 911 back to its stylish roots!

I’m not sure what they are trying to do with the rear, and I get the feeling that the spoiler on this mule has been heavily camouflaged and subsequently distorted from the look it will have in production.  I think that ‘whale tale’ is to throw off the pundits, or is it? Time will tell.
