The innovative bodyshell of the 911 fulfils two structural design requirements: first, excellent driving dynamics due to the body’s extremely high rigidity; second, a low vehicle weight primarily as a result of the intelligent lightweight construction.
To achieve both goals, therefore, we used very thin, but nevertheless extremely rigid sheets of steel for the bodyshell.
In addition, aluminium was used extensively in areas such as the underbody, the front and rear ends, the doors, the wings and the engine compartment and luggage compartment lids, whilst magnesium – a particularly lightweight material – was selected for the front roof elements of the new 911 Targa 4 models.
