Eight-Generation Porsche 911 Will Launch Early 2019 In Europe

New Porsche 911: fresh images of 992 model released…

We've also seen the new 911 in numerous spy shots, nearly completely free of any disguise, and now Porsche has released this media set of the 992 undergoing testing all willy-nilly.

This is the new Porsche 911, proving it'll go very sideways. The automaker wants to make sure every component of the auto functions just as reliably as it did at the beginning of the testing program. The prototypes have been tested for endurance in lengthy traffic jams across various cities and on the race tracks too.

Porsche took the 2019 911 to the Death Valley in the U.S., to test the air conditioning, thermal management, and combustion behaviour which needed to pass functional checks in temperatures up to 50 degrees Celsius. Interior components must not expand or contract and make noises when exposed to extreme heat. There, 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.

On the other end of the spectrum, the new 911 was also sent to areas with colder climates like Finland, where minus 35-degree temperatures are recorded.

Since we're talking the new 911 here, a big chunk of the testing was performed on the Nürburgring and Nardò tracks in Germany and Italy respectively, where engineers could see the chassis, engine, gearbox and suspension system at work.

In March, she accidentally killed Joshua Lew, one, and Abigail Blumenstein, four, after suffering a seizure behind the wheel. Miles took home a Tony award in 2015 for best featured actress for her performance in "The King And I".

The vehicles reach their geographically lowest point in Death Valley, which descends to around 90 metres below sea level; while the thin air on Mount Evans, Colorado, with a height of 4,300 metres, challenges the biturbo charging and the fuel system.

According to Porsche, by the time the testing is complete, the cars will have been driven around three million kilometres.

The German sports vehicle maker will be using the last three weeks before the debut to prepare its fans for the grand premiere and it has just started the teaser campaign.

The eighth generation of the Porsche 911 will be coming to the European market early next year, but not before the prototype completes its final tests across the world.
