The New Front "Form always follows function. As a design principle, it couldn't be more simple."

Every child recognises a 911, but can its identity be described in words? It can, by looking more closely at the use of form, proportions and contours.

The wings are higher than the bonnet which give the 911 its distinctive expression and leave you in no doubt as to its temperament. The modified vehicle architecture, with a wider track at the front axle and the lower roof line, gives the front of the new 911 a dynamic appearance that is sporty and elegant.

For improved aerodynamics, the exterior mirrors are now mounted directly on to the doors.
In summary, form always follows function. As a design principle, it couldn't be more simple, but it's what makes the 911 a 911. It's also how we have managed to achieve a very low drag coefficient of just 0.29.
