  • New look to 2019 Porsche 911 992-series before Porsche wants you to see it

    2019 Porsche 911 992

    We aren’t entirely sure that Porsche is too keen on keeping the next-generation 911 much of a secret. The latest spy photos don’t really “spy” Porsche’s new supercar as much as they showcase it from every angle. The car isn’t even painted the normal shade of Porsche prototype black, and we will happily admit this new 911 is positively gorgeous in blue. There’s no possible way this car would go unnoticed in public, and we suspect that’s exactly the way Porsche wants it.
