2012 Porsche 911 Prototype Stuck In The Snow

Who are we to giggle at the misfortune of a Porsche test driver who not only managed to stick a prototype 2012 911 in a Scandinavian snow drift, but do so in full view of a spy photographer? Tee hee.

These shots, some of the clearest we've seen of the next 911, offer up excellent views of the rear tail lamps and the body detail work underway. Codenamed the 991, it's not expected to have its reveal until this fall — likely, from what we hear, in November at the Los Angeles Auto Show — where rumors suggest the latest iteration of the flat six-cylinder engine will get a 345-hp setting.

Knowing Porsche, the snow scraper will likely cost extra.
