Porsche Unveils the New Porsche 911 Carrera S PDK

You may not see it when you first cast a glance at it, but the Porsche 911 Carrera S PDK flaunts quite a few design changes. Reinventing the iconic 911 is never an easy task, mainly because all changes have to be made in a manner that allows the new version to stay true to the 911 legacy. With that purpose in mind, Porsche completely upgraded the exterior of the car (almost all components were re-developed or re-designed).
Some of these changes include a new aluminum-steel composite body which is 40 kg (88 lbs) more lightweight than its predecessor’s, a 100mm longer wheelbase, remodeled and re-positioned wing mirrors (on the upper edge of the door panels), slit-eyed LED tail-lights, a lower stance, shorter overhangs, smaller engine cover, and new headlights which even though seem to be round, they have a slightly elliptical shape.
To match the power increase of the new 911, Porsche also introduced a new rear spoiler that can be deployed at the touch of a button, but which also comes up automatically when the car reaches 120 km/h (74.5 mph). Even though the new version packs more muscle than its predecessor, its emissions and fuel consumptions are up to 16 percent lower. Again, Porsche has done an irreproachable job with its new generation Carrera.
