2016 Porsche 911 will be slightly changed, with changes both in design and performance of the model. German car producer decided to do a facelift of the model, and recently spy photographers managed to catch the model undisguised.  The biggest fuss is caused by news about turbo engines, since design alterations will be modest, just like we expected from the Germans.
