An astute Porschephile noticed a 2012 Porsche 911 at a gas station in Stuttgart and went to work. Following the brown coupe through the pumps then out to the street, he captured the sight and sounds of the car codenamed 991 from just about every angle before it roared off. We'll see the final version at next month's Frankfurt Auto Show, but in the meantime, check out the video after the jump, and note the intriguing appendage that appears to be covering the sunroof opening.

      Undisguised is NOT the same as barely disguised.

      like Walter da Silva (Ex Alfa and Audi design CEO) said a few years back: It is much easier to create a whole new car than making an evolutionary design, cause u have much more freedom designing a whole new car. with an evolution the freedom is very limited (esp. with iconic designs), cause u as a designer primarily don`t want to disappoint current customers and fans but still want to make it look fresh, that´s the first goal, the next step is u are trying to attract new ones and that´s a very difficult task. People should think about that, before calling Porsche Designers lazy.

      That new 911 looks awesome ...REally an excellent vehicle that does it all. I dig the looks, the performance, the two plus two jump seats in back...the PDK transmission is amazing technology. I'm a corvette enthusiast through and through yet I am impressed with what Porsche has done with this new model. Thanks for the heads up ..Autoblog rocks! JB

        Perhaps its a solar array to power the hybrid/electric powertrain?

      Thats the beauty in owning a 911, they don't change much over the years and most people can't tell a new from one that's several years old. Too bad the guy taking the video was more interested in the outside of the car, and didn't get any shots of the new interior.

      Wow, LOVE the bubble headlights, and the way the bodywork just barely flips up all across trailing edge just above the taillights, forming a mini spoiler lip. And then in the cut lines you can see what portion of the bodywork will raise to create the moving spoiler. The proportions on this are way more aggressive in the rear, more room for engine/maybe more forward. Or is it a more hospitable back seat?

      I don't know about that rear bumper. Seems awfully thick. But if it's as much of an improvement as the 997 was over the 996 ... heh heh heh
      Where's the cheese?

      You can say it looks like the old one but that still doesn't take away from the fact that it's still one of the most desirable vehicles on the market today.

      although the differences are subtle, it's a nice looking car. i think Porsche understands that the 997 was the best 911 ever, as far as looks are concerned, and they didn't want to stray too far from it for the 991.

      It sure looks like the rear engine is much more forward.
