Airbags

The 911 Carrera 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 minimising 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 not just sooner, but with even greater accuracy.

Porsche Side Impact Protection System (POSIP)

Coupé or Cabriolet, the 911 models are equipped as standard with the Porsche Side Impact Protection System (POSIP). It comprises side impact protection elements in the doors and two airbags on each side. An integral thorax airbag is located in each seat side bolster, while the door panels each contain an upwardsinflating head airbag. Each thorax airbag has a volume of 10 litres and each head airbag 15 litres, ensuring excellent protection in the event of a side impact.
