Is this the all-new Porsche 998 slated for 2011/2012?
Well...at least according to German car mag 'Auto Bild'. Their renderings of the all-new Porsche 911 seem the brightest of em all - among all the grey/black spy shots thus far. On thing is clear though: the return of the new 998 series to the roots of the 993 - the stalked wing mirrors being a very prominent feature - with more upright headlamps versus the outgoing 997. However unlike the 993, the new 998 test mules have been spotted to have longer wheelbase, a more sloping rear screen and wider tracks too. Expect further power output hikes with probably even the base Carrera 3.6 with maximum punch of closer to perhaps 390 hp (currently 355 hp).
