Exterior design

To show you what we mean, we should start by taking a look at the car’s exterior. Its long wheelbase helps to provide a high level of driving stability and excellent cornering dynamics. Overhangs are short at the front and rear, giving the 911 a compact and agile look.

The sporty overall impression is emphasised by the low roof line and by the wide track at the front. On the 911 Carrera all-wheel-drive models, the body is 44 mm wider at the rear. The resulting benefits include increased traction and agility.

The silhouette is therefore typically 911 and typical in terms of its development, which will now be described in more detail.

The vehicle architecture, with its wide track at the front axle and the low roof line, lends the front of the 911 a dynamic appearance that is both sporty and elegant. It has also helped us to achieve a low drag coefficient of 0.29 for the 911 Carrera.

Fitted as standard, the Bi-Xenon headlights have the familiar oval-shaped surrounds for classic appeal and reveal their technically impressive inner workings. LED main headlights including Porsche Dynamic Light System Plus (PDLS+) with dynamic cornering lights, speed-sensitive headlight range control and dynamic main beam are available as an option.

The indicators, daytime running lights and position lights are all LEDs and are integrated into the separate front light units. Their slimline design contrasts with that of the rounded headlights. Together with the two integral air intakes, they make the front of the 911 unmistakable.

At the rear, everything is clean and sharp: the styling, the appearance and the effect. This is due not least to the distinct lines and narrow LED taillights which accentuate the horizontal contouring of the rear. The illuminated rear light strip on the all-wheel-drive models further enhances the effect.

One unmistakable Porsche feature is the stainless steel tailpipes. On the S models, twin tailpipes are fitted on both sides. The wide rear spoiler is extendable, acting to reduce lift in all driving situations and further increase driving stability.

The 911 Carrera models and the 911 Carrera S models are equipped as standard with 19-inch and 20-inch wheels, respectively. Their large dimensions enhance the sporty presence of the 911. The tyres have a large rolling circumference for improved comfort and performance.

Even the logo on the rear has an important function to perform. It is, after all, the hallmark of the Porsche identity.
