Video: First glimpse of Porsche's new 911Tue, 19 Jul 2011 00:00:00 -0700
These are the first images of the new 2012 Porsche 911, set to make its official debut at the forthcoming Frankfurt motor show.
The evolutionary design, built atop a chassis that rides on a longer wheelbase, will feature a steeper rake on the windshield and stand shorter than the outgoing 997, while retaining similar overall dimensions.
According to an insider, the new 2012 911 will also feature a heavily revised interior, similar to that of the recent Cayenne and Panamera models.
Click on the video to the left to see the new 911 undergoing hot weather testing in South Africa. And stay tuned for more details on the new car nearer to its Frankfurt debut.
