The Bi-Xenon headlight system is fitted as standard. The brightness of the lights is approximately twice as great as that of conventional halogen lights. Light output is improved and the road illuminated more uniformly on both dipped and main beam, helping to minimise driver fatigue. Also included is dynamic range control to prevent hazardous dazzling of oncoming vehicles due to undulations in the road or the loading of the car. A headlight cleaning function is also incorporated.
Dynamic cornering lights (standard on 911 Turbo S models, optional for 911 Turbo models) offer particularly effective illumination of the road ahead, especially through bends. Sensors continuously monitor the speed, lateral acceleration and steering lock and, from these variables, calculate the course of the bend. This determines the angle of illumination for the dipped beam lights, up to a maximum of 15 degrees. On twisting roads, this means the course of the road and obstacles can be seen earlier by the driver.
The lighting concept also benefits from the latest technology, in the form of high-performance LEDs for the horizontal front indicators and also for the separate daytime running lights, the taillights and the third brake light in the rear wing.
In addition to the distinctive look that makes the car very recognisable, the lighting also provides high illuminating power. The brake lights also respond very quickly, meaning that following traffic is alerted sooner. Plus the lighting saves energy, is environmentally sound and has a longer service life in comparison to conventional bulbs.
When the vehicle is opened or closed using the key remote, the ‘Welcome Home’ lighting function automatically switches on the LED daytime running lights.
Two additional lights inside each door ensure you see and are seen better when getting into and out of the car.
