We've also seen the new 911 in numerous spy shots, nearly completely free of any disguise, and now Porsche has released this media set of the 992 undergoing testing all willy-nilly.
"In addition to its outstanding performance, it's the 911's suitability for daily use that has always put it in a class of its own", said Andreas Pröbstle, project manager for the 911. Porsche says that this new test regime puts the cars under "a great deal of stress".
The Porsche 911 will enter into its eighth generation later this year. The prototypes of the 2019 Porsche 911 have been tested in different climate zones with temperature difference being up to 85-degree Celsius. Like Porsche says, the car's interior must weather temperatures of both 50 degrees Celsius in Death Valley and the Middle East, as well as horribly freezing temperatures of -35 degrees Celsius in the Finnish Lapland. The eight-generation Porsche 911 will be launched in Europe in early 2019 and the Italian carmaker has shared the pictures it took during the testing.
Porsche took the 2019 911 to the Death Valley in the US, to test the air conditioning, thermal management, and combustion behaviour which needed to pass functional checks in temperatures up to 50 degrees Celsius. The vehicle was also tested in heavy traffic in China. There, the test agenda focuses on areas such as cold start, heating and air conditioning, traction, handling and braking behaviour, as well as the response speed of the control systems related to driving dynamics. The same is done in Italy, on the Nardò test tracks. This prototype was spotted on the Nurburgring, so it's likely that Porsche is still fine-tuning its track-oriented 911. In total, the cars have driven around three million kilometres, at altitudes as low as 90 m below sea level and up to 4,300 metres on Mount Evans, Colarado (biturbo and fuel system testing). The taillights will run along the back of the auto and there will be vertical slats for air vents above it. All this testing is to ensure that the new 911 works everywhere as it was intended.
