The innovative bodyshell of the 911
State-of-the-art techniques are used to combine various materials in order to utilise specific material properties exactly where they are needed. For the bodyshell, therefore, we used very thin, but nevertheless extremely rigid, sheets of steel. Aluminium was utilised extensively in areas such as the roof, underbody, doors, engine compartment and luggage compartment lids.
Magnesium, which is a particularly lightweight material, was also selected for the cockpit and centre console support beam. Such material efficiency is key to reducing the overall weight and, as a result, the fuel consumption of the vehicle.
