The new 911 is the sum of its predecessors – and is therefore a reflection of the past and a vision of the future. The silhouette: iconic. The design: timeless. The technology: inspired by great racing victories and always one step ahead. With the eighth generation of the 911, we’re driving into the future.
The silhouette of the 911 stands for timeless design. But the new 911 also proves how contemporary it is, especially from behind. The rear end is powerfully, clearly and precisely designed. The rear screen appears visually extended and merges, almost seamlessly, into the black tailgate grille. The new, vertical, third brake light is integrated into this. Directly beneath are the seamless light strip, between the threedimensional LED taillights, and the newly designed model logo in Light Silver. The rear apron surrounds the newly designed tailpipes of the exhaust system. The new 911 also appears particularly athletic due to the differently sized wheels at the front and rear.
A design that unites traditional and modern. That ensures more dynamism on the road. And causes a sensation for everyone who follows the 911.
Viewed from the front, the new 911 tells the story of its past. And reveals much about its own future. The wings are clearly shaped and highlight the powerful geometry and design DNA. The newly designed bonnet with its characteristic dynamic recess profiles – and its straight slope to the front apron – is a nod to the 911 models of the first generation. Modern LED technology is used in the main headlights with four-point daytime running lights and dipped beam. The camera and sensors in the comfort and assistance systems are integrated under the front apron.
The clarity of the design of the new 911 can be seen in the details. The newly designed exterior mirrors are clear cut, while the lowering door handles are discreetly integrated into the car’s image. Thanks to these details, the overall profile of the new 911 appears more compact, more polished and more technical.
A timeless idea only holds on to its youthful vigour if it is constantly upgraded. So every new generation of the 911 also represents a new start. For an even better 911.
The clear design language of the new 911 and its striking lines are novel and yet familiar. Inside and out. The wide rear end with seamless taillight strip now unites all 911 models. Great clarity even in the interior: this is where classic sports car ergonomics meet the digital possibilities of today.
The new generation of engines is more powerful and even more efficient. The 3.0 litre six-cylinder twin-turbo engine of the 911 Carrera S models produces a full 331kW (450hp). The acceleration is enormous. With the Sport Chrono Package and Launch Control, the 911 Carrera 4S, for example, sprints from 0 to 100km/h in just 3.4 seconds.
The top speed: 306km/h. Forward thrust that gets the new 8-speed Porsche Doppelkupplung (PDK) on the road even more effectively. The newly designed Porsche Active Suspension Management (PASM) increases sporty performance and comfort. Driver assistance systems, such as Lane Keeping Assist, including traffic sign recognition and Night Vision Assist, make driving easier.
Moving with the times. Changing as you go. And remaining true to yourself at the same time. A timeless sports car in the best sense.
The new 911.
