New Porsche 911: fresh images of 992 model released…

The latest prototypes, which show both the Carrera and Carrera S, are nearly completely devoid of camouflage gear, and they also reveal most of the interior including a new digital dash. 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.

Porsche says that every component of these cars has to perform as well at the end of testing as they did at the start.

Thousand Oaks mass shooting: Multiple people injured at California bar
The attack has been upgraded to a level 2 mass casualty incident indicating that there are between 10 to 20 injured victims. At least four ambulances responded to treat multiple victims, the Ventura County Star reports.

Testing at first focused on the chassis and engine, which in the new model were enhanced for everyday use and performance. Moreover, there are practical checks and stress tests for the completely new working idea in the cockpit, and in addition instruments and shows. They furthermore endured "lengthy traffic jams in major cities" and set "new records on race tracks". The new driver assistance systems and enhanced connectivity has also been assessed. At these places, the car's air conditioning, thermal management, and combustion behaviour must remain functional tests in temperatures up to 50 degrees Celsius.

Finland where temperature drops below -35 degree Celsius was chosen as the freezing region to test for cold-start testing, heating traction, handling and braking behaviour as well as the response speed control system (electronics) which are related to the driving dynamics.

The carmaker also tested the Porsche 911 in the European Arctic Circle areas and during endurance runs on the road and tracks in China to check the reliability on fuels of various qualities. Elevation tests have run the gamut from Death Valley at 282 feet below sea level to Mount Evans, Colorado, reaching higher than 14,000 feet.

In total, the prototype models have been driven around three million kilometres (1.86 million miles).

The eighth generation of the Porsche 911 will be coming to the European market early next year, but not before the prototype completes its final tests across the world. In the gallery released by Porsche, it looks like the part of the auto that will be revealed last is the tail light cluster-these images have the ends of the full-width taillight strip still taped up.
