Motor Trend releases a new video showing their first look of the all-new 2012 Porsche 911 Carrera S.

Motor Trend has just posted a new video of their first look at the all-new 2012 Porsche 911 Carrera S. This brief, although fairly in-depth look of the new model, just makes us want to drive it even more. Although the new car looks like, well, a 911, there are some significant changes. For starters, Porsche engineers and designers lengthened and widened the car and gave it shorter overhangs.

It's also slightly shorter than the previous generation, effectively giving the new model an overall sleeker appearance. And because the 911 is a continuing product of evolution, those always detailed-obsessed Porsche guys have improved the car's weight distribution in order to offset any disadvantages of its rear-engined setup.
