It must be slightly frustrating buying a new Porsche 911 these days, because there always seems to be something newer and better coming around the corner. Buy a new Carrera, and within a couple of months there's a new Turbo or GT3 you want more. Wait for the Turbo or GT3 and there's a new GT2 coming out. Wait for the GT2 and already it's outdated because there's a new generation of 911 in the pipeline. And here it is.

Spied while undergoing cold weather testing, the test mule seems to carry a more Cayman-like greenhouse, with a more swept-back windshield and sleeker profile than the traditional upright 911 silhouette. A wider, lower grille appears to cap a longer nose left exposed on this test mule, but the tail is all covered up. Sources suggest the next 911 could to hit the road as early as two and a half years from now as a 2012 model, with a possible debut at the 2011 Frankfurt Motor Show.
