Captured during last month’s Frankfurt Motor Show, this video from Porsche sheds light on the philosophy behind the new interior of the 911. The Porsche 911 is one of the most iconic cars on the road and the German automaker has managed time and time again to give the beauty some modern aesthete without stripping it of its origins. With the interior, we think there are some definite parallels between the more modern designs of recent years and those we saw decades ago. The basis throughout all these years continues to be comfort and timeless elegance and the 2012 911 delivers on all counts.
