Updated 2025 Porsche 911 Turbo Spied Winter Testing: Photos

The Porsche 911 is due for a refresh for the 2025 model year. Known as the 992.2 (in Porsche generational speak), the refresh will give the vaunted luxury sports car an updated twin-turbocharged flat-six engine and a hybrid system, along with updates inside and out. Now, our spy photographers have captured the 2025 Porsche 911 Turbo undergoing testing in the Arctic winter.

The front fascia of this refreshed 2025 Porsche 911 Turbo prototype is adorned in light camouflage on the bumper. Taking the form of black tape, matching the black color of this Coupe, the camo is hiding a few small design details. Interestingly, the design seen here is not expected to carry over to production, as Porsche is rumored to be planning a substantially more substantial update to the refreshed 911 Turbo‚Äôs front fascia. That means that either the new look has yet to be finalized in the design studio, or it simply wasn’t installed on this particular prototype.

No changes are seen nor expected to the side of the refreshed 2025 Porsche 911 Turbo, but we would like to bring to your attention those massive cross-drilled rotors. Though they appear to be the same size as the current ones, we have to say that we absolutely love seeing those massive discs.

The rear end will be getting several important changes, including new taillights and a new exhaust treatment. Despite this prototype having some snow spray on its rear end that muddies the details, we can still see a horizontally-oriented tail light, whose design is further masked by camouflage at the outer edges of the rear. Beyond the new taillights, the rear end will also feature an updated exhaust treatment, with the prototype seen here sporting trapezoidally-shaped quad tips.

The interior will likely sport a few minor changes, but the changes will be more substantial under the skin, where the 2025 Porsche 911 Turbo is expected to offer either one or two electric motors that will work in tandem with the flat-six internal combustion engine. This will, in turn, remake the 911 Turbo and its more potent variant, the Turbo S, into hybrid vehicles. To that end, the revamped exhaust likely goes a long way toward packaging the newfound hybrid hardware, which will also add some weight in the process.

From a power perspective, the current Porsche 911 Turbo is rated at 572 horsepower at 6,500 rpm and 553 pound-feet of torque at 2,250 rpm, while the Turbo S makes an even more potent 640 horsepower at 6,750 rpm and 590 pound-feet of torque at 2,500 rpm. It will be interesting to see the impact the newfound hybrid hardware in the 2025 911 Turbo and Turbo S will have on power figures and performance.

From a business standpoint, the Porsche 911 remains the second-best-selling model in its segment, just behind the Chevy Corvette C8. That said, we feel obligated to note that the Corvette has a substantially more affordable starting price than the 911 ($68,300 vs. $114,400), so the sales comparison isn’t exactly apples-to-apples. Regardless, U.S. sales of the 911 family grew 14.5 percent to 11,692 units during the 2023 calendar year, a performance that Stuttgart should be proud of.
