Porsche is testing its new 8th generation 911 (pictured in this blog). The prototypes have been completing their final testing programme around the world.

The testing programmes took place in the Gulf States in the Middle East, Death Valley in America and China. European testing was also completed in Germany, Finland and the roads in the European Arctic Circle.

Andreas Pröbstle, Project Manager for the Complete Vehicle of the 911 said:

“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. 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.”

The new 8th generation Porsche 911 will be available in the UK at the beginning of 2019.
