The Porsche 911 Aerodynamic Concept Was Design Evolution

Nothing like sticking with the same basic shape for half a century.

Porsche has a reputation for being stubborn. After all, it’s the only mainstream automaker that’s still building a rear-engined car. But when you stick with a particular design setup for so long, designers and engineers are able to evolve things to near perfection. Such is the case with the 911. Although Porsche switched to an all-new body style with the 996 back in 1998, it still managed to improve the classic 911 until the last minute.

Taking lessons from the 911 Aerodynamics concept, the design crew incorporated various features into the 964 and 993 (note the headlights). So once again check out our favorite Porsche Museum curator explain the significance of this one-off concept.
