At 48, the Porsche 911 Carrera is younger than ever: the completely redesigned generation of the sports car icon is stepping into the limelight with its flat, stretched silhouette. The 3.9 inches (100 millimeter) longer wheelbase and reduced height combined with the up to 20-inch wheels underpin the athletic appearance. Seen from the front, the eye is drawn to the 911's trademark wide-arched wings. They emphasize the wider front track, so that the new 911 Carrera models sit even more solidly on the road. The all-new, lightweight body is an intelligent aluminum-steel construction. It is responsible for a significant proportion of the weight reduction of up to 45 kilograms. Combined with significantly greater rigidity. Aerodynamic optimization – including a wider, variably extending rear spoiler – enabled the new 911 Carrera's lift to be reduced yet further while retaining a very good Cd value.
