Photo of the day: the new Porsche 911 goes drifting

Good news! The new-age 992-gen Porsche will still indulge your silly side

This is the new Porsche 911, proving it’ll go very sideways. Which is excellent news, given it’s something the rear-engined sports car has always been pretty adept at.

The image above has emerged as Porsche casts some light on the testing programme the 992-generation of 911 has been put through.

“In addition to its outstanding performance, it’s the 911’s suitability for daily use that has always put it in a class of its own,” says project manager, Andreas Pröbstle.

“That’s why we test the vehicle under all conditions, and in every type of weather and region. The vehicles’ drivetrain must function as flawlessly as its fluids, systems, operating processes and displays – it’s the only way we can be certain that the vehicle is able to travel through all regions of the world without faults.”

All of which sounds terribly sensible and scientific. Which is probably why Porsche made sure – as it illustrated the vast array of countries, climates and conditions the 992 has been tested in –  there was no doubt about the silliness of the skids it’ll do. Phew.

More info on the Porsche 911 is here, while we’ll see the real, uncamouflaged thing very soon. Excited?
