Porsche is obviously keen to keep the design of the new 911 under wraps for as long as possible, having added several red herrings into the mix.
Initial impressions would most likely discern this was the 911 Turbo, however closer inspection reveals the side vents to be nothing more than stickers.
The rear wing - despite its high-mount tail lamp - is just a prop, disguising the true form of the new 911's rear end.
The new-generation 911 will almost certainly feature the same range of naturally-aspirated and boosted flat-six engines, with the addition of Porsche's new PDK dual-clutch transmission.
Internally referred to as the 998, the new 911 is expected to replace the current model in 2011.
