The current TECHART program for the 911 Porsche models is characterized by distinctive design from mod. 09, showcased as a world first showing at the 2009 Geneva Motor Show next week.
Derived from the Porsche 911 Carrera 4S Cabriolet 2009 version, the design features artistic, athletic and dynamism. The stylish external design included elements which generate a feel of full-bodied sportiness and harmonic aerodynamic driving.
The stylish spoiler up front merges seamlessly with the shape of the bumper and generates sportive purity. Sill panels, which aid power optimization, bring attention to the lengthened side lines and add a dash of dynamism to the sides of the car.
The sporty appearance is further enhanced through a low sitting rear air diffuser and wing profile of the rear spoiler. Decorative embellishments, headlight and mirror trims, a carbon or PU-RIM roof-mounted spoiler and air vents inbuilt into the front apron rounds off the aggressive look.
Leather embellishments in wide varieties, matching color 3-spoke airbag sport wheel, pedals in aluminum and decorative borders are a few of the options offered.
As far as TECHART manufacturers are concerned, there is fundamentally no limit to the personalization of the design. The accent in silver appears on the dashboard, decor of the door trims, information-entertainment system panel, central console back covers of the seats and hooks for clothes.
Porsche will offer the new all-wheel drive Porsche 911 Carrera 4 in four model versions, thereby giving customers four varieties of driving enjoyment. Of course, all of these four models are provided with a lightweight design, active Porsche Traction Management (PTM) system for optimal traction and stability, new engines as well as more assistance systems.
Although all four models of the Porsche 911 Carrera 4 boast of higher levels of power and driving performance, they are significantly more fuel efficient – by up to 16 percent – than their respective predecessor. This way, the new all-wheel drive 911 is consistently following the same course as the 911 Carrera Type 991 presented in 2011. The Carrera 4 takes top efficiency and performance to an even higher level.
Compared to two-wheel drive 911 Carrera models, the all-wheel drive version features a wider rear section. This is thanks to the fact that each of the rear wheel housings is 22 mm wider while each of the rear tires is 10 mm wider. As a result, the track of the 911 Carrera 4 and the new S-model are now wider by 42 mm and 36 mm, respectively. In addition, the rear of the new 911 Carrera 4 features an exclusive tail-light panel with parking light and rear lamp functions. This panel is located just below the spoiler edge, helping visually connect the car’s two rear lights.
