Porsche 911 Turbo Facelift 2009

Another round of next-generation Porsche 911 Turbo photos has surfaced, this time capturing the updated autobahn-stormer in unclad winter testing. The largely unchanged, Cayman-inspired sloped nose and menacing black wheels are almost familiar to the spy cameras by now, but the snow dusting the black prototype highlights the redesigned rear bumper's exhaust outlets and air vents. The high-contrast winter pictures also give us our first good look at the new LED foglight and taillamp arrays.

The revised 911 Turbo is expected to arrive for the 2009 model year, just in time to face off against the new Nissan GT-R.

Notam-se diferenças na zona lateral (está mais "cintada", mais agressiva), nos farois traseiros e nas ponteiras.

As alterações nos modelos Porsche, sofridas pelo facelift:

First and foremost, Porsche has upgraded the 3.6 and 3.8-liter engines to direct injection making 345 hp (+20 hp), 390 Nm torque (+20 Nm) and 385 hp (+30 hp), 420 Nm torque (+20 Nm) respectively. All-wheel-drive models get a limited slip differential as standard and for the first time a 7-speed dual clutch transmission called Porsche Double Clutch (PDK) with flappy paddles on a new three spoke steering wheel is introduced.

The chassis gets an enhanced Porsche Stability Management (PSM) while bigger front and rear brakes disks fill the new style 18-inch standard Carrera wheels and 19-inch wheels for the Carrera S.

In the lighting department LED daytime running lights and side lights plus redesigned LED rear lamps are added, and bi-xenon headlamps become standard on 3.6-liter models.

As seen in previous spy photo stories, the exterior gets restyled front and rear bumpers, semi-integrated stainless steel exhaust tailpipes, larger exterior mirrors, and for the first time, all-wheel-drive models receive further differentiation such as a rear light-strip (red in color), black trim at base of rear bumper and titanium paint finish on front air intake surrounds and horizontal grilles. The new colour range includes:

* Porsche Racing Green Metallic (metallic colour) replaces Forest Green Metallic

* Aqua Blue Metallic (metallic colour) replaces Cobalt Blue Metallic

* Nordic Gold Metallic (special colour) replaces Dark Olive Metallic

* Cream White (special colour) replaces Slate Grey Metallic

For the interior, the center console is restyled in black finish with modified air-conditioning controls and fewer switches. Navigation data is accessed via hard drive and the TFT display screen increase in size from 5.8 to 6.5 inches as well as touchscreen functionality. Sport Chrono Package Plus in conjunction with the PDK transmission gets new functions:

* launch control

* race-track gearshift strategy

* additional ‘Sport Plus’ button

Audio and communication upgrades will see voice control with whole-word input and universal audio interface for connecting external audio devices, such as Apple iPod or USB stick in center console storage compartment.

Production for the European 2009 Carrera started four days ago with point of sales starting July 5. However, North America and the rest of the world have to wait until September 20. Worldwide sales for the Carrera 4 and Targa will start October 25.
