Porsche to Unveil Carrera at Frankfurt Motor Show
The all-new 2012 Porsche 911 Carrera will celebrate its world premiere at the 2011 Frankfurt Motor Show next month.
According to the company, the new 911 offers better longitudinal dynamics and performance in terms of transverse dynamics. In addition to the longer wheelbase, the greater agility, precision and driving stability are based, among other things, on the wider front track, the new rear axle and new electro-mechanical power steering.
Depending on the model, there are other standard or optional active control systems available that can help further enhance the overall driving dynamics. That is especially true for the Porsche Dynamic Chassis Control (PDCC) active roll stabilization system, available for the first time on the 911 Carrera S.
The system helps reduce lateral roll when cornering and helps keep the tires in the optimal position relative to the road surface, says the company.
The new 911 further extends the span of seemingly contradictory attributes such as performance and efficiency, sportiness and every day practicality. That makes the 911 Carrera more of a 911 than ever. The new Porsche 911 Carrera celebrates its world premiere at the 2011 IAA Frankfurt Motor Show in September.
The first new 911 models will arrive in U.S. dealerships beginning in February of 2012. The new 911 Carrera Coupe will have a base price of $82,100, while the 911 Carrera S Coupe’s base price will be $96,400 (excluding destination). Both models will include substantial additional equipment when compared to the previous models.
