Porsche 911 Carrera (type 997)
Porsche 911 Carrera (type 997)

From 2005, the Porsche 911 was presented as being more versatile than ever before: It was available as a Coupé and Targa, Cabriolet and Speedster, with rear and all-wheel drive, a slimmer and wider bodyshell, with water-cooled naturally aspirated engines and turbo engines, as a GTS version and in the sports versions GT2, GT2 RS, GT3 and two GT3 RS versions to choose from. Including special models, the range encompasses 30 model variants — supplemented by numerous customization options.

With the design of the 997 generation, Porsche sharpened the 911 character and gave it an even more dynamic and powerful appearance. The Carrera already looks noticeably more masculine with its more strongly modeled rear, and the S, GT and Turbo models add another 44 millimeters in width. The 997 differentiates itself from its predecessor by the steeper, round, clear-glass headlights, which reference an important stylistic element of the air-cooled 911.
