2012 All-New Porsche 911 (991) in Detail: Front & Rear Axles


PORSCHE Media

Front and Rear Axles "Improved driving stability and cornering dynamics thanks to the extended track width and longer wheelbase."

The wheelbase of the new 911 is 100 mm longer for improved driving stability and cornering dynamics. Overhang is now shorter at the front and rear, making the new 911 look even more compact.

The redesigned independent suspension at the front features a lightweight spring-strut axle with longitudinal and transverse links and cross members that have been refined for stiffness. Each front wheel is precisely located, ensuring excellent directional stability, superior handling and increased anti-dive (reduced pitching under braking), and the wider track optimises turn-in.

The rear axle is equipped with a motorsport-derived multi-link suspension and chassis subframe based on the LSA concept (Lightweight, Stable, Agile), which that has been modified to offer improved noise characteristics.

Refined axle kinematics for improved longitudinal damping reduce acceleration squat and increase comfort. Lightweight spring struts further enhance agility.

The high proportion of aluminium used in the construction of the axles reduces the weight of the vehicle and of the unsprung masses, helping to improve fuel economy, comfort and agility.
