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.

You can find out more details about the new 8th generation Porsche 911 over at Porsche at the link below. The eight-generation Porsche 911 will be launched in Europe in early 2019 and the Italian carmaker has shared the pictures it took during the testing.

The prototype 911 cars are moving between climate zones with temperature differences of up to 85-degrees Celsius, moving across elevation changes of more than four kilometers, and sitting in traffic in major cities.

Porsche says the 992's chassis and (twin-turbo) engine "have been enhanced even further to increase both performance and everyday use", while new driver assistance systems and "enhanced connectivity" are also expected.

For endurance testing, the 911 cruised on China's roads and sprinted along the country's race tracks in "a traffic structure that is typical for that country", where fuel quality can also vary greatly. At these places, the car's air conditioning, thermal management, and combustion behaviour must remain functional tests in temperatures up to 50 degrees Celsius.

"So the interior components must not expand or contract and make noises when exposed to heat, for example."
In Finland's minus 35 degrees temperatures, the test agenda focuses on areas such as cold start, heating and air conditioning, traction, handling and braking behaviour, as well as the response speed of the control systems related to driving dynamics. Porsche says the test cars will have completed a total test run of 3 million kilometers when they have served their objective, and part of that is, of course, testing at the legendary Nürburgring, where many 911 customers will undoubtedly take their new pride and joy.

Also worth mentioning that the Porsche company in honor of its 70th anniversary, has released a unique version of the model 911 (993) Turbo S. This auto exists in a single copy.
