The eagerly anticipated 2012 Porsche 911 has been spied with almost no camouflage, which is a big change.

The new 911 will be a little longer than the last one, by 2.2 inches, but with 4 inches extra between the wheelbase. The growth of the car has been linked to accommodate a possible hybrid system. The base 911 while come with a 3.4-liter flat-six and 350-hp. The Carrera S will pack a 3.8-liter cranking out 400-hp. The car is also believed to be offered with a seven-speed manual transmission.

Performance numbers will be somewhat similar to the current model, with a 0-60 time of 4.5 seconds for the base Carrera topping out at 186 mph. Impressively the 991 will be 12-15 percent more fuel efficient and weigh 55 pounds less. Porsche has stated the the Carrera completed the Nürburgring in 8:04, and the Carrera S in 7:50.

The Porsche 911 will makes it's official debut at the Frankfurt Auto Show this September.

I was disappointed to hear that 2012 porsche 911 performance numbers are similar to the current model. I have a feeling they did this upgraded model to help support a hybrid system and maybe a EV setup. Porsche is more than likely to be tight lipped on 2012 Porsche 911 info until the Frankfurt auto show.
