Fuel economy and recycling

Intelligent lightweight construction has been fundamental to the Porsche identity since 1948, for both technical and ecological reasons. This forms the basis for achieving low fuel consumption values in conjunction with outstanding performance.

On the technical side, we use a high proportion of aluminium, magnesium, plastics and super-high-strength sheet steel. The materials used have been selected for their ability to withstand load, yet they are considerably lighter than conventional steel.

On the ecological side, all materials used are meticulously selected. All synthetic components are easily recyclable and each material is labelled to facilitate its separation for recycling. The reduction in the number of plastic variants helps to ensure more efficient recycling. Recycled plastics are used where they meet our exacting technical requirements.

In short, the 911 is around 95% recoverable.

In addition, Porsche uses a high proportion of environmentally friendly water-based paints. For us, environmental protection does not begin at the end of a vehicle’s life. It starts at the planning and development stage.
