Spied Up Date: 2012 Porsche 911

Porsche's perennial 911 is an icon that isn't likely to ever change its basic shape, but is continuously being updated. And though the 911 Turbo model was just revised for 2010, our spy photographers have captured what appears to be the next-generation car already testing in the snow.

Of course, car companies use various bodies and camouflage to disguise development mules to throw off onlookers such as us, but this tester most closely resembles the 911 Turbo. Notice the front fascia, which sports new LED turn signals along with LED driving lights, all of which are located above the brake ducts. Notice also the fog lights; these are all current-generation 911 features, though obviously updated.

Overall, the car appears wider, with slightly smaller and wider-set headlights, while the larger wheel arches are filled to the brim with monster wheels. All of these traits combine for a wider, lower, and more aggressive appearance than the current car.

Move around back and you'll find more new features. At the bottom, you'll notice quad tailpipes commonly found on current 911 "S" models, such as the Carrera 4S. The side scoops ahead of the rear wheels and the vents behind the wheels are both gone, though the side scoops have been painted on.
