Porsche 911 Cabriolet: New spy shots!

Porsche 911 Cabriolet

We found fresh spy shots of the Porsche 911 Cabriolet which is expected for 2012.

The 2012 Porsche 911, and its Cabriolet variant, is known internally as ‘project 991’ and will feature a few radical departures from the 911’s long-running classical styling.

Clear differences between the new model and the current 997 are the more upright headlights, slightly longer body, and the side mirrors now positioned at the side of the doors and not at the window.

Other new features for the car will include extensive use of lightweight carbon-fiber materials and active aerodynamics–surfaces that react to what the car is doing, and how fast it’s doing it. Expect adjustable front and rear spoilers plus dynamically opening and closing air intakes. Porsche’s traditional handbrake may even be replaced by a electronic unit.
