Porsche Active Aerodynamics (PAA) 911 Turbo Cabriolet

Porsche 911 Turbo Cabriolet - Porsche Active Aerodynamics (PAA)

Porsche Active Aerodynamics (PAA)

Objective I: to make the drag coefficient as low as possible. Objective II: to set a new standard for downforce. With the Porsche Active Aerodynamics (PAA).

For the first time at Porsche, in the 911 Turbo models, we have used active aerodynamics as a combination of a multi-stage adjustable front spoiler and a rear spoiler. The front spoiler, which is made from a flexible, pneumatic elastomer, and the rear spoiler will extend and retract synchronously in three positions.

In Stage 1 (Start), front spoiler and rear spoiler are completely retracted. This increases suitability for everyday use because there is less risk of getting caught on ramps, thresholds or kerb edges. The spoiler lip is well protected.

In Stage 2 (Speed), after 120 km/h, the front spoiler and rear spoiler are partially extended. This ensures a high level of stability, a low drag coefficient and enables a high top speed.

Stage 3 (Performance) is activated by the press of a button, with the spoiler button or – in conjunction with the Sport Chrono Package – the SPORT PLUS button.

Front spoiler and rear spoiler are now completely extended. The ‘turbo’ or ‘turbo S’ logo can be seen on the front spoiler lip. Also, in this position, the rear spoiler is tilted by up to 15 degrees. Thanks to the high level of downforce on the front and rear axles, in this setting the car can release its full performance potential, for example on the racetrack. The downforce also provides advantages when braking at high speeds.

Porsche Active Aerodynamics (PAA). A system that combines everyday use, efficiency and driving performance. And reaches its objectives in the 911 Turbo way.
