On Saturday, June 18th, one lucky recipient will win the newly designed 2017 Porsche 911 in the Diabetes Foundation raffle that will be held at noon at Jack Daniels Porsche, 355 Route 17 South in Upper Saddle River, NJ. Presence at the drawing is not required to win. Only 3,000 tickets will be sold at price of $100 apiece. Proceeds from this year’s raffle will go directly toward the purchase of diabetes medications and supplies for those who need it most.
The design language of the 2017 911 model, proportions and contouring follow the 911 tradition: with wings that are higher than the front lid; with headlights that are bulging and round; with a roof line that slopes down towards the rear over tapering side windows. The overall appearance is low, wide and sleek.
The front has been reshaped for an even sportier look. The air intakes are larger, the design is even more succinct. In the side air intakes, new active air intake flaps control aerodynamics and cooling performance as required.
Conspicuous, in the best sense of the word, is how to describe the prominent, three-dimensional LED taillights. They create a sculptural look – a design for tomorrow, combined with engineering for a new era.
A hallmark of the all-wheel drive models is the seamless light strip on the rear. For the new 911 models, it has been further refined. It is narrower and appears to seep into the taillight units on either side, with an illumination that has never been so homogeneous – qualities that accentuate the 44 mm wider rear of the all-wheel drive body.
The Diabetes Foundation
The Diabetes Foundation is a 501(3) corporation whose mission is to improve the care and quality of life for children and adults living day to day with diabetes. DFI provides short-term diabetes medications, supplies and education to needy people with diabetes; offers support services that help set up plans for longer assistance and information and resources for diabetes management; and, sends children with diabetes to summer camp to help them know they are not alone in facing this disease.
Diabetes kills more people each year than Aids and breast cancer combined. It is estimated that one out of every three children born after 2000 in the United States will be directly affected by diabetes. There are well over 29 million Americans, or over 9.3% of the population, that has diabetes.
Please help the Diabetes Foundation make a difference in the lives of many people fighting diabetes and its complications every day.
