2012 Porsche 911

The upcoming 2012 Porsche 911 has been caught cold-weather testing in preparation for the production car's debut at September's Frankfurt Motor Show. The big news with the 2012 911 is its slight increase in size, with the aim of aligning it more with its GT and supercar competitors.

The 998 Porsche 911 will be 2.2 inches longer than the current car, with the 998's track a hair wider than the 997's. Out back, there's a 3.4 liter version of Porsche's venerable flat-six, pushing out around 345 horsepower in standard form. That should mean a 0-60 sprint of 4.8 seconds, and a 180-mile-per-hour top end.
