The 2011 Frankfurt Auto Show is next month but Porsche knows how to make their booth pack with crowds by releasing sets of official photos of 2012 Porsche 911 Carrera coupe. The photos are showing both exterior and interior of the German-made coupe; so let’s undress the 2012 Porsche 911 Carrera, shall we?
The exterior of the 2012 Porsche 911 Carrera coupe is an evolution of the classic shape than a revolution. The designer teams at Porsche have successfully made the headlights look more modern without leaving its svelte sporstcar signature. The front side of the 2012 Porsche 911 Carrera coupe is now completed with a new set of daytime-running LEDs which housed into the front edges.
Looking at the 2012 Porsche 911 Carrera coupe, the first impression is a wider, more squat shape, and the humps flow from the taillight are the obvious evident that the German manufacturer has done his homework. If you are true fans of Porsche, then you might notice that the lower bumper lines of the 2012 Porsche 911 Carrera coupe have change a little bit, especially the middle trapezoidal opening.
The extender wheelbase on the 2012 Porsche 911 Carrera coupe emphasizes the extra interior space, especially in the back. The length of the 2012 Porsche 911 Carrera coupe has grew 56mm, while the height is cut down by 11mm. We spotted that the back of the coupe, especially the tail which has been squashed down to give more coupe-ish look and offer us much thinner taillights and more sloped rear windscreen.
Remember the old engine cover? The 2012 Porsche 911 Carrera coupe has a three-tier engine cover instead of the old four-tier layout. We really can’t hide the feeling that the rear shot of the 2012 Porsche 911 Carrera coupe pretty much reminds us with the Porsche 918. Inside the coupe, the interior much likely got the inspiration from Porsche Panamera such as increased sophistication visible on the new center console.
The official photos of the 2012 Porsche 911 Carrera coupe do not mean we got all the performance details because the German automaker decided to share that later, during the 2011 Frankfurt Auto Show. Our best prediction is that the 2012 Porsche 911 Carrera coupe will be powered by a 3.4L which pretty much will be sharing with the Porsche Cayman that also replacing the old 3.6L. As part of the 2012 Porsche 911 Carrera coupe, the Carrera S and 4S will be powered by 3.8L engine. The complete details of the 2012 Porsche 911 Carrera coupe will be acquired during this year’s Frankfurt Auto Show.
