2014 Porsche 911 Styling

Styling

Still without doubt a Porsche 911 at first glance, the styling of the latest model is very different from its predecessor--just subtly so.

A low, sloped nose, rising front fenders capped by round-ish headlights, and the fastback coupe profile all say "911," despite the changes. All four of the new 991-based variants are also available in Cabriolet (convertible) form as well.  A wider front track balances out the front-rear proportions, and the longer wheelbase helps stretch the car's lines into more elegant arches and curves.

The look of the 2014 Porsche 911 has evolved hugely over the past 50 years, but somehow still echoes the original.

Moving up from the base Carrera to the Carrera 4, 4S, GT3, and Turbo, the styling gets progressively sportier and, at the upper end, more racing-oriented. Likewise, track widths and fender flares grow wider, and ride heights drop lower as you move up the performance spectrum.

Inside, the Porsche 911 carries off an adaptation of the Panamera's cabin with equal if not greater skill; though the center console is perhaps a bit button-heavy, it's much sleeker and more intuitive than the Panamera's own, while the dash, steering wheel, and other details fit perfectly with the 911's sporting aptitude and daily-driver comfort.
