Abstract:
1. ABSTRACTOne of the essential features of the new Porsche Carrera is its newly developed chassis. It offers a maximum of driving fun and active safety to customers with sporty ambitions. The front axle is a McPherson unit carried over from the predecessor model and having been thoroughly reworked. Modifications to the axle geometry and kinematics help to improve the straight-line stability and the stability during braking. The rear axle is a newly developed light-weight multi-link unit which offers a maximum of driving stability and agility (“LSA-axle”). The incorporated sub-frame allows to considerably reduce the tire noises. The car is braked by a 4-piston aluminum fixed-caliper power brake system with internally-ventilated brake disks at both the front and rear axles.The new chassis follows the principles of future-oriented light-weight construction which uses aluminum wherever this is technically and economically feasible.
