The current Porsche 911, the Type 991, made its debut at the 2011 Frankfurt Auto Show and hit the market shortly after as a 2012 model. This means we’re approaching the halfway point in the car’s life cycle, and right on cue prototypes for an updated version, the Type 991.2, have been spotted, this time with virtually zero camouflage gear (there’s only a decal hiding the details of the tail lights). The latest photos show the basic Carrera but prototypes for updated versions of the Carrera CabrioletTargaand Turbo have also been spotted in the past.

The front of the updated 911 is characterized by revised daytime running lights and new intakes in the bumper, possibly with an active grille function to help save fuel. At the rear we can see some new intakes at the sides of the bumper and the exhaust pipes now sit at the center. This is very different to the design used on the existing Carrera models, suggesting some serious updates under the hood as part of this mid-cycle update.

Though it’s yet to be confirmed, Porsche is expected to fit its updated Carrera models with a common turbocharged 3.0-liter flat-six. The updated Carrera is expected to come with 370 horsepower on tap, up from the 350-hp rating of the current model’s 3.4-liter mill; and the updated Carrera S should have 420 hp, up from the 400-hp rating of the current model’s 3.8-liter unit.
