One fundamental principle at Porsche is to provide high levels of occupant protection, regardless of whether the vehicle is a closed or open-top design.
Torsional rigidity and flexural strength are exemplary for a twoplus- two convertible. Body flexing is minimal even on the most poorly surfaced roads, ensuring better handling and greater active safety.
Occupants are protected by an automatically deploying roll-over system if the vehicle were to overturn. Two spring-loaded rollover bars are neatly incorporated behind each of the rear seats. The roll-over sensor – part of the airbag control unit – continuously monitors the car’s pitch and roll, contact with the road, as well as lateral and longitudinal forces. If the car were to overturn, the top-padded bars would be deployed instantly.
Of course, the 911 Turbo Cabriolets also come as standard with the Porsche Side Impact Protection (POSIP).
