At Porsche, we don’t build everyday sports cars, we build sports cars for everyday use. How? By understanding that great agility and maximum comfort are not mutually exclusive but are, in fact, aspects of a harmonious overall concept.
This is especially true of the interior of the 911. Sportiness, functionality and high-quality materials combine to form a cohesive whole that is conducive to dynamic driving, even during everyday use.
This becomes clearer the moment you get in. The longer wheelbase now offers 25 mm more leg room in the front than in previous 911 Carrera models, for example.
Sportiness in harmony with comfort is the theme which is reflected in the clever ergonomics that characterise the entire interior design. The materials used, the layout of the controls and their operating logic belong to a new generation of sports car. Another new design for the 911 is the ascending centre console. Its intelligent operating concept follows a clear principle of direct simplicity.
A classic 911 feature is the arrangement of the five circular instruments with the rev counter in the middle. The contemporary instrument cluster featuring a high-resolution 4.6-inch full VGA TFT colour display enables the driver to view information from, for example, the new adaptive cruise control function or the all-wheel-drive display, or to see navigation instructions.
Acoustics are an integral part of the concept, particularly the engine sound. Available as an option is the Burmester® High-End Surround Sound System.
Optimised for the 911 Carrera model range, it features 12 loudspeakers and a total output of 821 watts for a perfect spatial sound.
The 911 proves that apparent opposites, such as style and engineering or comfort and performance, can go hand in hand. For us, there is no contradiction and certainly no need for compromise. After all, a strong personality does not deny the existence of opposites, it unites them.
