The Porsche 991.
The internal designation for the seventh generation of the Porsche 911 sports car, which was unveiled at the 2011 Frankfurt Motor Show on 15 September as the replacement for the 997. The 991 is an entirely new platform, only the third since the original 911 launched in 1963 (the 996 of 1999 was the second new platform).

The new 911 is 20 millimeters longer than the 991 it replaces and yet maintains the wheelbase of that previous generation, as well as the characteristic architecture with the engine located behind the rear axle. The only thing that changes in this sense, besides the greater proportion of aluminum in the structure, is that the anchors of the engine are located 20 millimeters later than before, which balances the weight distribution more.
The COC Porsche is available for all Porsche 991 built for the European market.
What there is a considerable growth in width, something that can be seen at first glance in the back, which is now 44 millimeters wider than in 991 and with some "grips" very marked. The front axle also gains 45 millimeters, but it is not so obvious to the naked eye because the front wings are more restrained.
That increase in width, is not an aesthetic whim. Now the Porsche 911 carries tires of different inches between the front and rear axle, being in front of 20 inches and behind 21, with what they say the car treads better and above all, it is more balanced than before.
If we go to the design of the front, we must be very precise at a visual level to differentiate it from its predecessor. There are many small changes very subtle but not a revolution in the design. The round optics with four points of LED light have changed minimally, and perhaps the most outstanding evolution is in the front apron with greater surface in black, as well as the double-plane bonnet with the lowered central strip, especially notable in the área that borders on the front windshield. That detail gives aggressiveness and musculature to the front and takes inspiration from the 911 generation G.
We are in times of transition to digital in all aspects, including cars, and that has made some, in that moment of change, have not been fully successful with their decisions.
I mean the total absence of physical buttons to handle such basic and common things as the air conditioning controls or the configuration parameters of the car. Panamera and Cayenne are two good examples, but there are many others in other brands.
Luckily in the new 911 Porsche has not gone to that point so radical in the digitization and modernization, so we find a cabin in which the center console is still high and thin, but in which we find physical buttons whose commands, yes, they are seen in the new central screen of rectangular shape and touch function of 10.9 inches.
In short, the 911 has the right and necessary to look and feel much more modern than the 991 it replaces, while maintaining the practicality and ease of use that have always characterized it. Oh, and of course, with the quality of finishes and materials that a car with a ase price of 138.105 euros deserves.
