The 911 Design Process

[+]

This exclusive drawing by Benjamin Baum from the early design phase had a huge influence on the design of the current 911 generation.

Unmistakably Porsche

From the first to the current generation, the design of the 911 remains unique and unmistakable. The stylists begin to develop their visions of a future Porsche sports car years before it is presented to the public. But there is more to designing a new 911 than a few sketches on a notepad. It takes talent, knowledge, passion, and patience to blend proportions, styling themes, and details into a beautiful and functional product—your next car.

The design process is comprised of three phases. First, the vehicle’s proportions need to be established, refined, and massaged until they are perfect. This is the foundation for the unique silhouette on which the 911 DNA is based. The second phase belongs to the creative designers, who compete in developing exciting new styling themes that will carry the spirit of the iconic 911 into the future. Hand drawn sketches are still the preferred medium, as there is no better way to let ideas flow. Only the best designs survive and are translated into three-dimensional models. In the detailing phase, the main focus is on the design of each and every visible item, such as headlights on the exterior, and the gear shifter in the interior.

Creative Center in Weissach

For up to two years, designers, studio engineer, and modelers work hand in hand on the design of a new Porsche sports car. Various full-size models of the exterior and interior are under continuous development. About 200 members of the Style Porsche design team work in the new Creative Center in Weissach, but they are not alone. Within the same building, the exterior models can be transferred to the wind tunnel for testing and refinement of their aerodynamic qualities. This setup has proven to be the perfect environment for all those involved in the complex andenduring design process.
