It’s not a game. Not even if the accelerator pedal and steering wheel are animated. A video log of a lap in the 911 GT3 RS on your smartphone is just one example of the connectivity options on offer from

With its Track Precision app,
When it comes to bringing smartphones and cars together,
Doors, windows, and the luggage compartment can also be checked remotely; the exterior mirrors can be folded in; and vehicle data including mileage, tire pressure, and service intervals can be called up from your desktop. And
The high-end version of the
HTML5 programming enables the onboard system to be continuously updated, and new apps can be added. Practically speaking, a driver behind the wheel of a 918 Spyder is online all the time and everywhere.

* Data determined in accordance with the measurement method required by law. Since 1 September 2017 certain new cars have been type approved in accordance with the Worldwide Harmonised Light Vehicles Test Procedure (WLTP), a more realistic test procedure to measure fuel/electricity consumption and CO₂ emissions. As of 1 September 2018 the WLTP replaced the New European Driving Cycle (NEDC). Due to the more realistic test conditions, the fuel/electricity consumption and CO₂ emission values determined in accordance with the WLTP will, in many cases, be higher than those determined in accordance with the NEDC. This may lead to corresponding changes in vehicle taxation from 1 September 2018. You can find more information on the difference between WLTP and NEDC at www.porsche.com/wltp.
Currently, we are still obliged to provide the NEDC values, regardless of the type approval process used. The additional reporting of the WLTP values is voluntary until their obligatory use. As far as new cars (which are type approved in accordance with the WLTP) are concerned, the NEDC values will, therefore, be derived from the WLTP values during the transition period. To the extent that NEDC values are given as ranges, these do not relate to a single, individual car and do not constitute part of the offer. They are intended solely as a means of comparing different types of vehicle. Extra features and accessories (attachments, tyre formats, etc.) can change relevant vehicle parameters such as weight, rolling resistance and aerodynamics and, in addition to weather and traffic conditions, as well as individual handling, can affect the fuel/electricity consumption, CO₂ emissions and performance values of a car.
