The 911 Carerra has been around for 48 years and many Porsche fans will agree that its design was due for a reboot. In light of these feelings, the German automobile manufacturer introduced the new, Type 991, Porsche 911 Carrera Coupe, equipped with many new features to rival its predecessor. This latest version of the popular car has many changes that may appear subtle upon first viewing, but are actually pretty significant. Such changes are taking place across the whole Porsche 911 model range, including convertibles and the base coupe, all the way up to the ultra-high performance, high-end models such as the 911 GT3 and 911 Turbo.
One of the changes is that the side mirrors have been included in the improved aerodynamic design, having been moved to the upper edge of the door. This should make for less overall resistance, and a car that you will want to take good care of and protect with some RAC Car Insurance. Also altered is the wheelbase, which has seen a considerable extension of 3.9 inches. While this may not be instantly noticeable, the change is significant to the working of the car. Together with this and the fact that the roof line has been slightly lowered, it now sports a much more aggressive stance. From the rear of the car, you can see that the whole look has been redesigned, with apparent changes such as the tail lights being modernized and sleeker, with a reshaped bumper and some gentle sweeping curves.
The body of the car is made out of aluminium-steel, which reduces the weight significantly, by around 99 pounds as well as making the body a lot more rigid. In the cockpit, the driver is now the focus with a center console that has been designed following the lines of Porsche Panamera. The interior is completely revised, although we still find the traditional five round gauge cluster arrangement. The new Porsche 911 is both more powerful and more fuel-efficient than its predecessors, so it is definitely worth all the attention.
