August Achleitner, head of the 911 product line, explains how the 991-generation 911 is a completely new car.

In this video August Achleitner, manager of the 911 product line, talks about the new 991-generation of the Porsche 911.

Achleitner explains how the 991 is a completely new car with a newly developed 7-speed manual gearbox and other from-scratch technologies such as the electric-powered steering.

As we reported yesterday, this sixth generation (seventh if you count the 930) of the 911 will be around in these basic proportions for the next 14 years and will likely produce more variants than we can even imagine today.

The video does provide many more tidbits of technical info for the true 911 lovers.
