http:gtchannel.com 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 100 millimetre (~ 3.9 inches) 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 emphasise 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 aluminium-steel construction. It is responsible for a significant proportion of the weight reduction of up to 45 kilograms. Combined with significantly greater rigidity. Aerodynamic optimisation -- 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.
