992-gen Porsche 911 torture tested ahead of debut

992-gen Porsche 911 torture tested ahead of debut

The 2019 Porsche 911 992 is going through its final testing programme, with prototypes being put through the gauntlet around the world in all sorts of conditions.

The latest prototypes, which show both the Carrera and Carrera S, are nearly completely devoid of camouflage gear, and they also reveal most of the interior including a new digital dash. The sports auto will come to the European market at the beginning of 2019, confirms Porsche but we expect an official reveal by the end of this year.

Fleets of Porsche 911 test mules have been roaming the globe from very cold to very hot areas, separated by up to 85 degrees Celsius temperature gaps. Despite those gruelling tests, every component of the vehicle must function as reliably as it did at the outset. Function and stress tests have been performed on the "entirely new operating concept in the cockpit" including instruments and displays. The winding and demanding roads in the area of the European Arctic Circle offer optimum conditions for testing a sports vehicle, while endurance runs have seen the new 911 test cars sprinting over China's roads and racing tracks in a traffic structure that is typical for that country, as well as proving that they run reliably on fuels whose qualities vary enormously. Next, the human-machine interface (HMI) undergoes function and stress tests, including the driver assistance and Porsche Connect systems. Like Porsche says, the car's interior must weather temperatures of both 50 degrees Celsius in Death Valley and the Middle East, as well as horribly freezing temperatures of -35 degrees Celsius in the Finnish Lapland. Endurance runs saw the new 911 test cars on China's roads for typical traffic situations where different fuel quality was also used. In Italy, the test cars are driven round the high-speed Nardò test tracks, where the focus is not only on top speed but also cooling and handling.

The triple-killing saw Bruns indicted by a grand jury on charges of manslaughter, criminally negligent homicide and assault. The 44-year-old had a seizure when she stopped at a red light before the fatal crash, according to authorities.

Its endurance was further tested at opposite elevations: 4,300m above sea level in Mount Evans, Colorado, and 90m below in Death Valley.

Porsche has tested the 911's limits in all kinds of extreme conditions, including temperatures below 30 degrees Fahrenheit. In the gallery released by Porsche, it looks like the part of the vehicle that will be revealed last is the tail light cluster-these images have the ends of the full-width taillight strip still taped up.
