But don’t let that be of the slightest concern: the new 911 both rides and controls its body better than before.
Our test Carrera S already sits 10mm lower on its suspension than the previous model, but this particular example sat a further 20mm lower still thanks to a £558 PASM sports suspension kit.
It also came with the optional active rear-wheel steering, a £1530 option. Yet it rides with far better quality than the just-departed variant, soaking away surface imperfections in a manner better than that of most sports cars this side of a Lotus.
Visibility is good, too, and the 911 remains at the narrower end of the sports car scale, which is always useful in a car you could drive every day – as many owners doubtless will.
Porsche makes no claims about the 911’s steering system beyond the active rear steer (where fitted), but whatever it has done to the ride height and damping seems to have benefited, to a small extent, the slickness and feel of what was already one of the best electrically assisted systems available.
So subtle is the rear-wheel steering that without a back-to-back track test of an otherwise identical 911, we doubt you’d be able to pick out specific differences.
