Porsche 911 Carrera Models - Lightweight construction

Lightweight construction

Those who want to win the fight against time and for efficient power delivery cannot afford to carry unnecessary bulk. Lightweight construction is therefore another core principle of the 911.

However, lightweight construction is not intelligent unless the right material is used in the right place on the vehicle. That, too, is Porsche conceptual harmony. For without body rigidity, there is no agility.

Likewise, driving dynamics and ride comfort are inextricably linked. For the bodyshell, therefore, our engineers used very thin, but nevertheless extremely stiff, sheets of steel. Aluminum and magnesium were used extensively in areas such as the roof, the underbody, the front and rear ends, the doors and wings, and the engine compartment and luggage compartment lids.

Such material efficiency reduces the overall weight and, as a result, the fuel consumption of the vehicle. It’s what makes the 911 the lightest sports car in its segment. And we’re no less proud of that leading position than we are of any epoch-making racing victory.
