The 911 Targa 4 models offer advanced airbag technology in the form of full-size driver and front passenger airbags, which are inflated in two stages depending on the severity and type of accident (e. g. frontal or offset frontal). In less serious accidents, the airbags are only partially inflated, thereby minimizing discomfort to the occupants.
In addition to the central airbag control unit on the transmission tunnel, a pair of impact sensors are located near the headlights. This allows a crash to be detected and evaluated far sooner and with considerably greater accuracy.
