The heart of the new 911 models is the 3.8-litre boxer twin-turbo engine with variable turbine geometry (VTG). It sits in the rear and provides more power than ever before. The fact that fuel consumption and CO2 emissions are, nevertheless, up to 16 % lower is thanks, amongst other things, to the new standard efficient technologies. Including thermal management, electrical system recuperation or functions such as auto start/stop and ‘coasting’. Helped also by the further improved Porsche Doppelkupplung (PDK).
Another new feature is rear-axle steering, which is fitted as standard. It adapts to different driving situations, thereby improving agility and stability. For straight sections of road and for bends, Porsche Dynamic Chassis Control (PDCC) is standard equipment in the 911 Turbo S models. PDCC ensures that the car sits more solidly and holds the road better.
The new Porsche Active Aerodynamics system (PAA) enhances both everyday practicality and performance. A contradiction that has been resolved by the flexible settings of front spoiler and rear wing. Resulting in better road clearance at the front, greater stability, lower fuel consumption on the road and impressive times on the racetrack.
More power. Greater efficiency. Job done? Not unless we need safety to keep up as well. This is ensured by new support systems such as speed limit display, reversing camera or adaptive cruise control including Porsche Active Safe (PAS).
The LED main headlights, including Porsche Dynamic Light System Plus (PDLS+) provide excellent orientation and make driving much less tiring. Standard in the 911 Turbo S models and available as an optional extra for the 911 Turbo and the new 911 Turbo Cabriolet.
