The 911 Carrera models are equipped as standard with Bi-Xenon headlights including a headlight cleaning system and dynamic range control. The LED front light units incorporate direction indicators, daytime running lights and position lights. Automatic headlight activation is also included as standard.
Cutting edge LED technology is also used for the taillights, the high-level third brake light, the licence plate illumination, the rear direction indicators, the rear fog light and – on all-wheel-drive models – the rear light strip. LEDs provide better illumination and respond more quickly to driver input.
In the event of sudden braking, the adaptive LED brake lights begin to pulsate. If the vehicle is braked to a halt, the hazard warning lights will switch on automatically. The lighting system features an automatic switch-off and the ‘Welcome Home’ function.
The Porsche Dynamic Light System (PDLS) is available as an option. Its dynamic cornering light function swivels the headlights towards the inside of a bend, based on steering angle and road speed, in order to illuminate more of the road at tight bends and turns. Put simply, the road ahead is illuminated the moment you enter a bend. Speed-sensitive headlight range control is also part of the PDLS as is the adverse weather function.
Superior safety meets sporty design in the form of the LED main headlights with PDLS+ which are available as optional equipment. Integrated into each headlight housing are four LED spots, for the daytime running lights, and one LED light ring. In addition to being efficient and long-lasting, LED technology also creates a light very similar to daylight and thus helps to reduce driver fatigue.
One special feature of PDLS+ is the dynamic main beam function. A camera detects the lights of vehicles ahead as well as those of oncoming traffic. Based on the data from the camera, the dynamic main beam function then adapts the headlight range accordingly. This continuous, stepless control means that you are able to see the course of the road, pedestrians and potential hazards earlier without hindering other road users.
