992-gen Porsche 911 torture tested ahead of debut

992-gen Porsche 911 torture tested ahead of debut”

Called the 992, Porsche has put out a teaser of this new-gen 911 showcasing it undergoing a new set of tests to prove that it is truly the ultimate sports vehicle.

The cat's pretty much out of the bag when it comes to the next generation Porsche 911 with recent spy photos revealing 99 percent of the exterior.

When the start of 2019 rolls around in Europe, the new 8th generation of the venerable 911 sports auto will be available to purchase.

The prototype 911 cars are moving between climate zones with temperature differences of up to 85-degrees Celsius, moving across elevation changes of more than four kilometers, and sitting in traffic in major cities.

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

Porsche has been testing the prototypes under various conditions: temperature differences, elevation changes, traffic jams and on racetracks to check the components reliability and the vehicle suitability for daily use. The Porsche Connect system differed from country to country, so its testing was very resource-intensive. At these places, the car's air conditioning, thermal management, and combustion behaviour must remain functional tests in temperatures up to 50 degrees Celsius.

On sale in 2019, the 2020 Porsche 911 is essentially all new.

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.

To ensure the engine, transmission, brakes, and chassis can withstand high-speed driving while staying cool and in control, the vehicle was tested on the Nürburgring race track in Germany and Nardò test tracks in Italy. The test vehicles reach the lowest point of their endurance run in Death Valley, which descends to around 90 metres below sea level; while the thin air on Mount Evans, Colorado - reaching heights of 4,300 metres - was the challenge for the biturbo charging and the fuel system.

The German sports vehicle maker will be using the last three weeks before the debut to prepare its fans for the grand premiere and it has just started the teaser campaign.
