Take a look inside the Porsche 992.2

2024 Porsche 911 prototypes have been testing in Germany… with big changes for the 992.2’s iconic five dial design

Porsche has been testing its next-generation 911 at the Nürburgring Nordschleife – and 9WERKS has taken a sneak peek inside the incoming 992.2 for the first time.

We’ve previously reported on the exterior appearance of the 992 facelift, and the latest prototypes – fitted with wheel force transducers for measuring dynamic load data – again show larger vents on the front bumper housing active slats which are VERTICALLY mounted, rather than the usual horizontal layout.

Meanwhile, at the back, a new decklid design is still hidden from view, with tape also shielding key details around the 992.2’s rear light bar. A visible incoming change concerns the 992’s twin exhausts, which are smaller and more centrally mounted. We’ve previously reported on the possibility of Porsche switching to 4.0-litre NA engines for the 992, as per its 718 GTS range.

However, inside the 2024 Porsche has so far been a mystery, with rumours abounding that the company will, after 60 years, ditch the analogue tachometer found in the centre of the 911’s iconic five dials. Well, 9WERKS can now confirm that to be the case, after our spies managed to get a shot of the prototype’s dashboard which shows one large digital screen nestled in the dash behind the steering wheel. A digital imitation of those aforementioned dials are displayed, showing the usual instrumentation we have come to expect from modern Porsche 911s.

The rev counter is still positioned albeit digitally as the centre dial, feeding into Porsche’s time-honoured mantra that with a Porsche, it’s not how fast you go, but how you get there.

Meanwhile, the 992 GT3 RS has been seen in testing at the Nürburgring Nordschleife with only limited came ahead of its reveal later this summer. Featuring a swan neck wing and heavily vented front boot as seen on the Le Mans-winning RSR, one of the GT3 RS prototypes featured new yet subtle aerodynamic aids on its roof.
