Porsche put the 8th gen 911 sports auto through rigorous testing

This final leg of testing the new 911 (992) prototypes is to find all the possible issues with the auto. Despite looking very similar to the outgoing auto, the 992 is said to have an all-new chassis, body, and interior. Additionally, there are functional checks and stress tests for the entirely new operating concept in the cockpit, as well as instruments and displays. Earlier this year, Porsche's head of GT road cars Dr. Frank-Steffen Walliser said he intends to keep the GT3 and GT3 RS naturally aspirated for as long as he can. The prototypes of the 2019 Porsche 911 have been tested in different climate zones with temperature difference being up to 85-degree Celsius. The sports vehicle will come to the European market at the beginning of 2019, confirms Porsche but we expect an official reveal by the end of this year. They furthermore endured "lengthy traffic jams in major cities" and set "new records on race tracks".

When the start of 2019 rolls around in Europe, the new 8th generation of the venerable 911 sports vehicle will be available to purchase.

Under the scorching sun of the Gulf States in the Middle East or Death Valley in the U.S., Porsche is testing air conditioning, thermal management, and combustion behavior in temperatures that can reach as much as 50 degrees Celsius (122 degrees Fahrenheit).

On the other hand, the cold start, heating and air conditioning, traction, handling and braking behaviour were tested in minus 35 degrees of Finland and the European Arctic Circle. The same is done in Italy, on the Nardò test tracks. Apart from that, the 911 makes frequent appearances on Nurburgring for the dynamic testing where the engine, transmission, brakes and chassis undergoes gruesome tests. In total, the cars have driven around three million kilometres, at altitudes as low as 90 m below sea level and up to 4,300 metres on Mount Evans, Colarado (biturbo and fuel system testing). The 992 911 will adopt an evolutionary design and will be the most advanced 911 to date, claims the carmaker. All this testing is to ensure that the new 911 works everywhere as it was intended.
