Weissach—The Innovation Accelerator

Center of Progress

Since the beginnings of the Weissach Development Center in 1962, Porsche has continually built on the site. For example, in 1981, the factory halls were expanded to a more useful area of 43,000 square feet, and the offices and studios were steadily enlarged. Since 1986, the wind tunnel has permitted aerodynamic measurements and fine tuning with the greatest precision. Towards the end of the 1980s, the significance of Weissach in the Porsche world was underlined when an in-house crash test center was installed and the test site for engines and assemblies was expanded. The Porsche Development Center in Weissach is still growing today.

It was only in 2014 that Porsche completed the largest development project so far in the history of the Development Center. At a cost of over 165 million dollars, the company renovated the Weissach site and added three new buildings—a design studio, a wind tunnel, and an Electronics Integration Center.

Aerodynamic Development

The high-tech wind tunnel sets new standards in airflow quality by producing air that is both uniform and low in turbulence and noise. Measuring eight meters in diameter, the fan has extremely lightweight carbon vanes and can generate wind speeds of up to 186 MPH in the measurement area around the test vehicle.

While aerodynamic measurements are being taken, the floor beneath the test object and its surroundings are also moved at the wind's speed.

Highly sensitive acoustic instrumentation around the test object localizes any sound sources three-dimensionally. The wind tunnel has a closed air circuit and is impressively efficient. When the fan is slowed after a measurement, much of the brake energy is fed back into the power grid.

Electronics Integration Center

Developments in electronics are evolving at a rapid pace. Today, for instance, there are some 6,000 functions in a Porsche supporting the driver. To develop these functions more efficiently and manage them along the entire supply chain, Porsche experts are now collaborating even more closely in the new Electronics Integration Center (EIZ).

The individual steps of the process include the following: specification and implementation of sub-functions on the upper floors, testing and qualifying under racetrack conditions—a task involving all areas—on the middle floor, and work on the individual components in the workshops on the ground floor.

Weissach Test Site

The test site may be regarded as the heart of the Porsche Development Center in Weissach (EZW). The history of the site began there some 50 years ago with the construction of the skid pad for testing vehicle dynamics.

In 1967, the creation of the off-road circuit in Weissach followed. The fast Can-Am course was built around the skid pad in 1971, together with the mountain circuit and its tighter curves. Since then, the test site has been constantly developed and adapted to new requirements.

The test site offers many varied opportunities—acceptance runs after the initial set-up or optimization of a vehicle; endurance tests for checking operational stability; trial runs for tuning and optimizing the chassis, engines, body, and electrical systems; and trial and acceptance runs with motorsport vehicles.

This is where every new prototype from Porsche is put to the test.

Acoustics Lab

When a new model is being developed, the sound experts know what it will sound like even before the prototypes hit the track. And, of course, there are always improvements to be made to comply with ever-stricter noise regulations being implemented in countries around the world.

The challenge is to make cars noticeably quieter to the outside world, while simultaneously transmitting the remarkable sound of the Porsche drivetrain to the interior with clarity and verve. Designing this sound is the passion of the Weissach acoustics engineers.

Engine Development

Porsche has always been at the forefront of trends and technologies in engine development.

To efficiently test the different types of engines, Porsche has a multitude of different benchmarks. Continuous investment ensures that all Porsche locations always have state-of-the-art technology to meet the demands of increasing product complexity and changing legal frameworks, which also place more stringent requirements on engine testing and the benchmarks required for it.

One example: The new 911 answers questions about the future of the sports car with a quantum leap in performance. By reducing fuel consumption, not by suppressing emotions. By following a principle that already changed everything once before—in 1974, with the first 911 Turbo.

Motorsports. From the Beginning.

We have lived and breathed motorsports since the very beginning. Not because we have to. But because we can’t help ourselves. Again and again we put every idea, every technology, every detail to the challenge set out by Ferry Porsche over 60 years ago—to build a sports car capable of winning on the racetrack. With a goal in mind—to gain knowledge that we incorporate into our production cars.

For example, in the development of charged six-cylinder flat engines, Porsche can look back on more than 40 years of experience. Turbocharging with a bypass valve was first used in the 917/10 racing car (1972) before entering series production two years later in the first 911 Turbo. Another achievement of motorsport is the Porsche Doppelkupplung, or PDK. As early as 1983, the racing department built this transmission system into the 956 long-distance racing car.

25 years later—the technology was introduced in the Porsche 911.
And so we continue on our path. Faith in our ideas. Fighting for our principles. Not blindly following every trend, but chasing our never-ending mission: to build the sports car of the future. Mission: Future Sportscar

Porsche Stability Management (PSM)

All 911 models are equipped with enhanced Porsche Stability Management as standard. PSM helps to maintain stability even at the limits of dynamic driving performance. Sensors continuously monitor the direction, speed, yaw velocity, and lateral acceleration of the car. Using this information, PSM is able to calculate the actual direction of travel at any given moment, and initiates strategic braking of individual wheels to prevent you from deviating from your intended line.

Under acceleration on inconsistent surfaces, PSM improves traction using the automatic brake differential (ABD) and anti-slip regulation (ASR) functions. The result is a high level of driving stability and extraordinary agility at the same time.

Electromechanical Power Steering

Statistics show that a car drives in a straight line 90% of the time. Our engineers saw potential for energy saving here. Unlike conventional hydraulic pumps, the electric motor on the electromechanical power steering uses energy only when the steering wheel is actually turned. As far as the other 10% is concerned, we’re optimally prepared, as the steering system is what you would expect from Porsche.

It features a variable steering ratio and responds sensitively and directly while also providing customary agility, a high level of comfort, and precisely selected feedback from the road. Efficient, to say the least.

Turbocharging

The displacement of the new 911 models has been considerably reduced with the aim of cutting fuel consumption. Nevertheless, the power output of the new engines has been significantly increased, thanks to the turbochargers created especially for the 911.

The system has two turbochargers with one charge-air cooler for each cylinder bank. Both turbos are particularly compact and have been optimally adapted to the displacement and power output of the engine. This construction minimizes the inertia of the drivetrain and improves responsiveness.

Integrated Dry-sump Lubrication

Life insurance for every engine is a reliable supply of oil, even during performance driving. That’s why Porsche uses integrated dry-sump lubrication. It is called ‘integrated’ because, unlike conventional dry-sump lubrication, the oil reservoir is located directly inside the engine, providing additional cooling functions and eliminating the need for an external oil tank.

This saves on space and weight. To reduce power loss and increase efficiency, an electronically-controlled oil pump supplies the lubricating points inside the engine when required. When demand is low, the oil pump is operated at reduced power, saving on fuel.
