Also applies to lightweight bodies and lightweight bodyshell repair.
But what does multi-material mix mean for you in terms of bodyshell repair? Basically, the same as always:
If they're damaged, new vehicle technologies require new diagnostic and repair procedures. Because the new materials and assembly methods also make the repair more challenging. In the case of traditional steel bodies, the diagnostics are carried out using gauges on the straightening bench, whilst multi-material mix bodies are measured digitally – using extremely low measuring tolerances. And welding is also no longer the leading assembly method. It is increasingly being replaced by bonding and riveting.
Example 911 (Type 991)*: compared to the Type 997, the number of welding points has been reduced by around 50%. More than 2,000 punched rivets are now used (Type 997: 0), together with over 120m of adhesive joints (Type 997: 12m).
So with all this complexity, who better to perform these repairs than those who designed and built the vehicles?

* Data determined in accordance with the measurement method required by law. Since 1 September 2017 certain new cars have been type approved in accordance with the Worldwide Harmonised Light Vehicles Test Procedure (WLTP), a more realistic test procedure to measure fuel/electricity consumption and CO₂ emissions. As of 1 September 2018 the WLTP replaced the New European Driving Cycle (NEDC). Due to the more realistic test conditions, the fuel/electricity consumption and CO₂ emission values determined in accordance with the WLTP will, in many cases, be higher than those determined in accordance with the NEDC. This may lead to corresponding changes in vehicle taxation from 1 September 2018. You can find more information on the difference between WLTP and NEDC at www.porsche.com/wltp.
Currently, we are still obliged to provide the NEDC values, regardless of the type approval process used. The additional reporting of the WLTP values is voluntary until their obligatory use. As far as new cars (which are type approved in accordance with the WLTP) are concerned, the NEDC values will, therefore, be derived from the WLTP values during the transition period. To the extent that NEDC values are given as ranges, these do not relate to a single, individual car and do not constitute part of the offer. They are intended solely as a means of comparing different types of vehicle. Extra features and accessories (attachments, tyre formats, etc.) can change relevant vehicle parameters such as weight, rolling resistance and aerodynamics and, in addition to weather and traffic conditions, as well as individual handling, can affect the fuel/electricity consumption, CO₂ emissions and performance values of a car.
