At Porsche, there are no conventions. Forbidding free thought? That’s forbidden. The only thing that matters is this question: how can we become even better? Let’s put it another way: can we redefine the limits of engineering? Can we reconcile apparent contradictions? Yes, we can. With Intelligent Performance.
The new 911 answers questions about the future of the sports car with a quantum leap in performance. By reducing fuel consumption, but not by suppressing emotions. By following a principle that has already changed everything once before: in 1974, with the first 911 Turbo.
Developed completely from scratch, the six-cylinder twin-turbo engines of the 911 Carrera models with a displacement of 3.0 litres embrace this principle and perfect it in a forwardlooking way. To be more precise: tremendous acceleration force even in the low rpm range is supplemented by the engine map of a 911 Carrera with the high rev limits typical of a sports car. In other words, high compression and a high engine speed combined with good modulation of power output and surprisingly low fuel consumption, thanks to the reduced overall displacement.
Expressed in figures, this means an extra 20 hp of power, an extra 43 lb.-ft. of torque and engine speeds of up to 7,500 rpm. And a reduced fuel consumption.
The engine of the 911 Carrera models develops 370 hp. The maximum torque of 325 lb.-ft. is available from as low as 1,700 rpm. With Porsche Doppelkupplung (PDK), the 911 Carrera can accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h in only 4.4 seconds and reach a top speed of 293 km/h.
The propulsive potential of the engine in the S models, featuring upsized turbochargers and independent exhaust system, is even more impressive. It generates a power output of 420 hp and the maximum torque is a mighty 368 lb.-ft., available from as low as 1,700 rpm. With Porsche Doppelkupplung (PDK) and Launch Control, the 911 Carrera S models sprint to 100 km/h in a mere 3.9 seconds. Top speed isn’t reached until 306 km/h.
What cannot be expressed in figures: the legendary sound of a 911 six-cylinder horizontally opposed engine. And the experience is all the more intense for it.
The stand-out qualities of the new twinturbo engines are their extraordinarily direct responsiveness and wide torque plateau, reached early in the low end of the rpm band. Combined with the high rev limit – and the legendary sound of a 911 six-cylinder horizontally opposed engine. In short: excellent performance that feeds back to the driver in an instant.
For 911 fans it’s a question of faith, for tech lovers it’s an issue of performance: rear or all-… LEARN MORE »
The answer may turn out differently on either side, but neither would be wrong. Those who recognise the rear-driven variant as being the one true 911 should consider that the all-wheel drive setup goes back to the legendary Paris–Dakar Rally of 1984, when the Porsche 953 based on the 911 wrote its own chapter in sport – and engineering – history. Fun in the corners, by the way, is guaranteed by both drive layouts.
Two irreconcilable philosophies? Let’s discuss a third: the design. The all-wheel drive 911 models have a 44 mm wider body, letting it rest more firmly on the road. An impression underlined by the new light strip, especially after dark.
Another hallmark of the all-wheel drive models: sheer supremacy. In every corner and at any time of year. Porsche Traction Management (PTM), the active all-wheel drive system, varies the drive force transmitted to all four wheels as the situation demands. This helps to ensure solid roadholding and even better performance. Simultaneously, of course. In winter. Day in, day out. At the limits of dynamic driving performance.
Rear or all-wheel drive? Whatever stance you take, the most fascinating philosophy of life is and shall remain the practical one. At Porsche, this philosophy has been about the road for well over 60 years.

The displacement of the new 911 models has been considerably reduced with the aim of cutting fuel consumption. That’s because we more than most as a sports car manufacturer bear huge responsibility. Nevertheless, the power output of the new engines has been significantly increased. Responsible for that are the turbochargers developed for the 911 completely from scratch.
The drive system is a twin-turbo configuration. It has two turbochargers with one charge-air cooling 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 minimises the inertia of the drivetrain and improves responsiveness. The new turbochargers leave the sceptics in their wake and find a new destination: unexplored levels of torque.
What looks technical on paper has an unmistakably resonant sound. The sound of a 911. And a performance that hits the driver in an instant. In the form of direct acceleration and visceral forward thrust. Rather like a ‘thump’ in the back the moment the engine unleashes its unadulterated power.

Pure, direct, precise. Short shift movements and an optimum transition from one gear to the next. The 7-speed manual transmission combines a high level of sporty performance with fast gear changes. In conjunction with the optional Sport Chrono Package, selecting SPORT or SPORT PLUS mode activates the dynamic throttle-blip function, which ensures the optimum engine speed for every downshift, a more emotional driving experience and an impressive sound.
A gear indicator in the rev counter reminds you which gear has been selected. The upshift indicator in the instrument cluster helps you actively to conserve fuel.

The optimised 7-speed PDK, featuring both a manual and an automatic mode, is available as an option and offers extremely fast gear changes with no interruption in the flow of power. And that’s with even faster acceleration performance and a further reduction in fuel consumption.
A first for the 911 models: in manual mode, the shift direction simulates that of racing cars and the 911 GT3 models – to the rear to shift up, forwards to shift down. For a racetrack driving experience wherever you are.
Gears one to six have a sports ratio, with top speed being reached in sixth gear. Seventh gear is ratioed primarily for fuel economy.
PDK is essentially two gearboxes in one. This double-clutch arrangement provides an alternating, non-positive connection between the two half gearboxes and the engine by means of two separate input shafts. The flow of power from the engine is transmitted through one half gearbox and one clutch at a time, while the next gear is preselected in the second half gearbox. During a gear change, therefore, one clutch simply opens and the other closes at the same time, enabling gear changes to take place within milliseconds.

It’s a first for any Porsche turbocharged boxer engines, and it’s a technical innovation. Available as an option for the new 911, the sport exhaust system features two catalytic converters and a rear silencer, which lead into two centrally positioned tailpipes. For a look otherwise more likely to be seen on the racetrack. For impressive resonance and an intense sports car sound – typical of the 911. For 100 % Porsche. And for goose bumps at the push of a button.

Auto start/stop switches off the engine when the driving speed falls below 7 km/h under moderate deceleration, such as when you are approaching a red light. As soon as you release the clutch or, with PDK, depress the accelerator pedal, the engine restarts – swiftly and smoothly.
In conjunction with Porsche Doppelkupplung (PDK), a coasting function becomes available where the situation allows. The engine is decoupled from the transmission to avoid deceleration caused by engine braking. In this way, optimum use is made of the vehicle’s momentum, enabling it to coast for longer distances.

The active air intake flaps in the front air intakes act to reduce fuel consumption during everyday trips and to achieve superlative performance on sporty drives. Already proven on the 918 Spyder, the flaps close automatically while the car is in motion and thereby reduce drag.
On demand or in SPORT or SPORT PLUS mode, the flaps open and help to provide optimum engine cooling.
This means that cooling air is supplied only to the extent that it is actually needed. That’s efficiency. Of the intelligent kind.

Yet again, everything comes back into play. It’s about a new benchmark. A sports car that has only ever existed once in this form. That has been a source of fascination for generations. And is firmly anchored in our heart and soul. It’s about the future of the 911.
We are always looking forward. Not sideways, never back. We don’t want to rest on the laurels of our past, no matter how illustrious it may be.
All the racing victories. The dreams. Our fans. Thousands of ideas. We hold them in our hearts.
But we start from scratch. And we will give everything we’ve got. We will go on the attack, to get even better. And we will fight, to defend our lead. With one single goal: to create the next 911, one that can do more, deliver more and consume less than ever before. A sports car as beautiful now as it was on day one.
That is our tradition. And our future. We will give it our all. For the best 911 of all times: the new 911.
Engine, chassis, body. In every component of the 911, we have invested years of experience, thousand… LEARN MORE »
Engine, chassis, body. In every component of the 911, we have invested years of experience, thousands of ideas and countless hours of development. Even the smallest innovation would fill a book. Yet, it is only when all individual parts work as one that we see a particular principle emerge: a harmonious overall concept or – as our engineers sometimes call it – the unique technical layout of the 911.
This principle has made the 911 fit for the future since 1963. 2+2 seats are the ideal concept for a compact and purebred sports car that nevertheless offers an astonishing amount of space and an airy feel.
Then there is the compact engine in the rear end: the optimum drive concept for the 911. It is this position that helps to ensure excellent traction and lends the 911 its unique driving feel.
The logical place for belongings in a rear-engined sports car is the luggage compartment at the front. This is key to good travel comfort, remarkable everyday practicality – and the strong individuality of an unadulterated sports car.
The perfect basis for superlative sporty performance, which you can bring to the road day in, day out.

Those who want to win the fight against time and for efficient power delivery cannot afford to carry unnecessary bulk. Lightweight construction is therefore another core principle of the 911.
However, lightweight construction is not intelligent unless the right material is used in the right place on the vehicle. That, too, is Porsche conceptual harmony. For without body rigidity, there is no agility.
Likewise, driving dynamics and ride comfort are inextricably linked. For the bodyshell, therefore, our engineers used very thin, but nevertheless extremely stiff, sheets of steel. Aluminium and magnesium were used extensively in areas such as the roof, the underbody, the front and rear ends, the doors and wings, and the engine compartment and luggage compartment lids.
Such material efficiency reduces the overall weight and, as a result, the fuel consumption of the vehicle. It’s what makes the 911 the lightest sports car in its segment. And we’re no less proud of that leading position than we are of any epoch-making racing victory.

The design of the 911 shows where we come from and where our roots are. But it also shows the direction of our thinking and how we see the future.
The design language, proportions and contouring follow the 911 tradition: with wings that are higher than the front lid; with headlights that are bulging and round; with a roof line that slopes down towards the rear over tapering side windows. The overall appearance is low, wide and sleek. Sports car proportions that originated on the racetrack.
An icon? Certainly – but only because we continue its development. Our designers focused on making the new 911 appear even more precise, and by doing so they created the blueprint for its future. With a new lighting design and characteristic four-spot LED daytime running lights, which have now been incorporated into the Bi-Xenon main headlights. With direction indicators that are even slimmer than they were before. For a Porsche that is recognisably a 911, even from a distance.
The front has been reshaped for an even sportier look. The air intakes are larger, the design is even more succinct. In the side air intakes, new active air intake flaps control aerodynamics and cooling performance as required.
In summary: the new 911 shows plenty of bite from the front. And the future has whetted its appetite.
The rear encapsulates the heart of the 911: the engine. This is where it has been beating since 1963. With the introduction of the new drive configuration, it beats harder than ever before. Some parameter tweaking was therefore required, including in the design.
First, then, let us explain the function before we come to the form. A combustion engine without air cannot do any work at all. That’s physics. A Porsche engine needs a lot of air to breathe. That’s motorsport. And the turbocharged drive layout of the new 911 Carrera models inhales more than ever, thanks to the longitudinally arranged slats of the rear lid grille.
Conspicuous, in the best sense of the word, is how to describe the prominent, three-dimensional LED taillights. They create a sculptural look, also typical of the 918 Spyder. A design for tomorrow, combined with engineering for a new era.
A hallmark of the all-wheel drive models is the seamless light strip on the rear. For the new 911 models, it has been further refined. It is narrower and appears to seep into the taillight units on either side, with an illumination that has never been so homogeneous – qualities that accentuate the 44 mm wider rear of the all-wheel drive body.
The design of the single-tube tailpipes in stainless steel – two-tract on the S models – is new. Inspired by the 911 GT3: the centrally positioned tailpipes of the optional sports exhaust system. For harmony of form, function and sound.
Sharp, sporty and timeless. The contouring of the rear is even more clearly defined, making it look wider, brawnier and more heavily built. That’s our approach to the theory of evolution.

The interior of a Porsche is infused with over 60 years of experience in sports car construction. You can feel it: in the materials, which are easy to grip and are exquisitely made. You can see it: in the sporty design. And it communicates itself with every second of driving, thanks to excellent ergonomics and comfort.
Not an everyday sports car then, but a sports car for everyday use. It’s clear the moment you get in, and find an astonishing amount of leg and head room.
The new sports steering wheel speaks the language of motorsport. The design is based on the steering wheel of the 918 Spyder and combines style with purism and a high level of functionality.
Integrated as standard in the 911 Carrera models for the first time: Porsche Communication Management (PCM) including online navigation module with real-time traffic information, voice control system and mobile phone preparation as well as the Connect Plus module.
Tradition meets innovation. The result? Futurism, but of the Porsche kind.

The 911 was designed to be a pure-bred sports car from the very start, initially offering 130 hp. As early as 1966, the first S model hit the road with an engine built for higher compression. The 911 S 2.0 Coupé drove the power output of the six-cylinder horizontally opposed engine up to 160 hp and was the force behind countless racegoing versions of the 911 in motorsport.
This tradition is also followed by the new 911, boasting six cylinders, a displacement of 3.0 litres and two engine variants: one rated 370 hp and the other – an S model – offering 420 hp.
Both engines meet the requirements of our time. Thanks to their turbocharged design, they generate more power – with reduced displacement and lower fuel consumption.
Incredible sportiness is the number one discipline of the 911 Carrera models. Turbocharged induction makes their engine not only more efficient, but also more powerful. In figures: 370 hp. The high torque of 331 lb.-ft. is available early on at an impressively low 1,700 rpm. A performance promise delivered to the driver without detour – across a wide engine speed range.
Fitted as standard for the first time in all models: Porsche Active Suspension Management (PASM), the electronic damping control system. Further proof that, when it comes to the 911, it’s always about increased performance – as well as greater comfort.
The base models are equipped with 19-inch alloy wheels. The newly styled single-tube tailpipes are imposing – just like the sound.

PASM is fitted as standard in all 911 models for the first time. This electronic damping control system continuously adjusts the damping force on each wheel, based on current road conditions and driving style.
PASM has two modes, which can be selected using a separate button on the centre console: ‘Normal’, which is a blend of performance and comfort, and ‘Sport’ where the setup is much firmer.
The results are tangible: increased driving stability, improved comfort and enhanced performance.

All 911 models are equipped with enhanced Porsche Stability Management (PSM) as standard. PSM maintains 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 safety – and extraordinary agility at the same time.

Adrenaline at the push of a button, goose bumps included: the functions of the optional Sport Chrono Package enable an even sportier tuning of the chassis, engine and transmission – and launch you to unprecedented sporty heights.
What’s new is the mode switch on the steering wheel, derived from the 918 Spyder to make you feel closer to the racetrack. Without your hand leaving the steering wheel, you can choose any of four settings: Normal, SPORT, SPORT PLUS and Custom. Now you can adapt the vehicle even more to the way you want to drive.
On activation of SPORT PLUS mode, Porsche Active Suspension Management (PASM) and, in the S models, optional Porsche Dynamic Chassis Control (PDCC) and optional rear axle steering adapt for enhanced roadholding performance by switching to a sportier damper setting and offering more direct turn-in on entering the corner.
In combination with PDK, the Sport Chrono Package has three additional functions. The first is ‘Launch Control’, which can be used to achieve the best possible standing start – a racing start. The second function is the motorsportderived gearshift strategy. In this mode, Another few seconds faster. Under the skin. High-performance systems. PDK is geared up for extremely short shift times and optimum shift points for the maximum acceleration available.
This combination of uncompromising and involving performance is ideal for the racetrack.
The third function – SPORT Response – is brand new to the 911. Pressing the button in the center of the mode switch primes the engine and transmission for the fastest possible unleashing of power. In other words, maximum responsiveness – for a period of approximately 20 seconds. A timer graphic in the instrument cluster tells you how long is left.
Another component of the Sport Chrono Package is the stopwatch mounted on the dashboard. In conjunction with PCM, a special performance display enables you to view, store and evaluate lap times or other driving times. It shows the total driving time, lap distance, lap number and lap times recorded so far.
Dynamic engine mounts are also part of the Sport Chrono Package. The electronically controlled system minimises the perceptible oscillations and vibrations of the entire drivetrain, particularly the engine, and combines the benefits of a hard or soft engine mounting arrangement. In short, it enhances both driving stability and driving comfort.
In conjunction with the optional Sport Chrono Package, PSM is supplemented by a ‘Sport’ mode. It allows a significantly more sporty driving style, with PSM remaining active in the background. For a further enhancement to your driving experience.
The PASM sport suspension is available as an option for the S models of the Coupé and only in conjunction with 20-inch wheels.
The ride height is 10 mm lower than with the PASM suspension. The springs are harder and shorter, and the anti-roll bars on the front and rear axles are stiffer. The front spoiler lip has an even sportier geometry, the rear spoiler extends even more. Not only does this further reduce lift at the front axle, it also provides downforce at the rear axle for improved aerodynamics and even better performance – combined with a surprisingly high level of comfort.

The SPORT button enables you to select a suspension setup where the emphasis is on either comfort or sporty performance. At the push of a button, the electronic engine management system switches the engine mapping to offer an even sharper response and engine dynamics that are more direct.
In vehicles with Porsche Doppelkupplung (PDK), upshifts take place at higher engine speeds and downshifts happen sooner. In addition, the optional sport exhaust system is activated automatically while certain functions, such as auto start/stop, are deactivated.

PTV (with manual transmission) or PTV Plus (with PDK) is available as standard in the S models and as an option for the 911 Carrera 4 models. Both systems actively enhance vehicle dynamics and stability. Operating in conjunction with a rear differential lock, they work by intelligently braking the rear wheels as the situation demands.
When the car is driven assertively into a corner, moderate brake pressure is applied to the inside rear wheel. Consequently, a greater amount of drive force is distributed to the outside rear wheel, inducing an additional rotational pulse (yaw movement) around the vehicle’s vertical axis. This results in a direct and sporty steering action from the turn-in point.
With PTV, the rear differential lock is regulated mechanically, while PTV Plus is equipped with electronic control offering fully variable torque distribution. In interaction with Porsche Stability Management (PSM), the system improves driving stability not least on road surfaces with varying grip as well as in the wet and snow.
For the driver, this means strong resistance to destabilising side forces, outstanding traction and great agility at every speed – with precise turn-in and well-balanced load transfer characteristics. What else? Tremendous fun in the corners.

We want to speed everything up. Progress included. The same applies to negative acceleration. That’s because even brakes are a source of potential. So we’ve upsized the brake system of the new 911 to match the increased power output.
The 911 Carrera base models are fitted with newly developed four-piston aluminium monobloc fixed calipers with a black anodised finish. All brake discs have a diameter of 330 mm.
The S models are equipped with red sixpiston aluminium monobloc fixed brake calipers at the front and four-piston equivalents at the rear. The brake chambers at the front axle are now made from aluminium. Brake disc diameters are 350 mm at the front, 330 mm at the rear. For enhanced stability and braking performance.
On all models, the brake calipers have an enclosed monobloc construction. This makes them tougher but lightweight and enables a more rapid response and release of the brake even under extreme loads. The pedal travel is short and the biting point precise. The brake discs are cross-drilled for improved wet braking and optimum cooling.

Proven in motorsport, the Porsche Ceramic Composite Brake (PCCB) is available as an option. On the new 911, the cross-drilled ceramic brake discs of PCCB now have a diameter of 410 mm at the front and 390 mm at the rear – for even more formidable braking performance.
Originating from the 911 Turbo S, PCCB features six-piston aluminium monobloc fixed brake calipers on the front axle and four-piston units at the rear – all painted in yellow – to provide braking forces that are considerably more powerful and, crucially, are exceptionally consistent.
PCCB enables shorter braking distances in even the toughest road and race conditions. Safety under high-speed braking is also improved thanks to its excellent fade resistance.
Another advantage of PCCB is the extremely low weight of the ceramic brake discs, which are approximately 50 % lighter than standard discs of a similar design and size. This results in better roadholding and increased comfort, particularly on uneven roads, as well as greater agility and a further improvement in handling.

The new 911 models offer advanced airbag technology in the form of full-size driver and front passenger airbags, which are inflated in two stages depending on the severity and type of accident.
All new 911 models are also equipped as standard with the Porsche Side Impact Protection System (POSIP). It comprises side impact protection elements in the doors and two airbags on each side. An integral thorax airbag is located in each seat side bolster, while the door panels each contain an upwards-inflating head airbag. Each thorax airbag has a volume of 10 liters and each head airbag 15 liters, ensuring excellent protection in the event of a side impact.

In the 911 Carrera Cabriolet models, an automatically deploying roll-over protection system offers added protection if the car were to overturn. Two spring-loaded roll-over bars are neatly incorporated behind the rear seats. The roll-over sensor continuously monitors the car’s pitch and roll, contact with the road, as well as lateral and longitudinal forces. The instant a potential roll-over is detected, it initiates deployment of the roll-over bars within fractions of a second.

Vehicles manufactured by Porsche demonstrate that even high-performance sports cars can achieve moderate fuel consumption and exhaust emission values in their respective category.
This is accomplished, on the one hand, with the efficient use of fuel by means of efficiency-enhancing technologies such as auto start/stop, thermal management, electrical system recuperation, active air intake flaps and, in conjunction with Porsche Doppelkupplung (PDK), coasting mode. On the other hand, catalytic converters with stereo Lambda control circuits provide efficient emission control.

Intelligent lightweight construction is integral to the Porsche identity. This is expressed in the form of a high proportion of aluminium, magnesium, plastics and super-high-strength sheet steels. All materials have been strategically selected, and the paints used are predominantly environmentally friendly water-based paints. Each lightweight material is easily recyclable and all plastic components are labelled to facilitate future separation for recycling. In all, the 911 is up to 95 % recoverable.

The driver must always know how to get ahead, without ever losing sight of the bigger picture. For this reason, everything in the interior is geared towards looking forward: to the car in front, to the next corner, to the next driving manoeuvre.
That’s possible only when synergies are created between engineering and design, and sportiness and comfort. Proof: the new sports steering wheel with its puristic design and excellent ergonomics. More proof: the ascending centre console. The principle they share: putting the driver first. The same applies to the suspension settings and the two-zone air conditioning system. There shouldn’t be any need to spend too long browsing one submenu after another. You should instead be able to concentrate on what’s important: driving pleasure.
Five round instruments make a sporty contribution. Their primary purpose is to provide information. They do so efficiently and accurately. And their styling is typically Porsche, with the rev counter exactly where you would expect it to be: in the middle.
Technology to help you along the way is integrated as standard: new Porsche Communication Management (PCM) including online navigation module plus 7-inch multi-touchscreen. Thanks to the Connect Plus module, PCM is also your gateway to the digital world.
The instrument cluster with 4.6-inch color screen provides you with a continuous stream of data from the onboard computer, such as trip mileage, journey time or average fuel consumption. It also displays the map of the navigation system together with real-time traffic information, delivers various warnings and reminds you of your chosen communication and audio settings.
From pioneering technology to sporty comfort. Whether it’s leather or Alcantara®, all the materials we use are exquisite and puristic.
In addition to the choice of Agate Grey, Black and Luxor Beige for the interior, there is a wide range of other personalisation options available, including two-tone color combinations or special colors and materials such as carbon, aluminim and high-quality wood.

Fitted as standard, the sport steering wheel with spoked design is lightweight and functional. The small center pad and the chrome ring encircling the Porsche Crest – both derived from the steering wheel of the 918 Spyder – reinforce its sporty character.
In conjunction with PDK, the sport steering wheel features two alloyed gearshift paddles. The shift throw of the paddles has been reduced, gearshifts are even crisper. Available as an option is the new GT sport steering wheel. This has a smaller diameter. The decorative ring and the paddles are finished in Galvano Silver, while the spoke trims are screw-fastened. For a motorsport-derived design? Definitely. Above all, though, to emulate a motorsport driving feel.
Heating and multifunction controls are optionally available for all steering wheels. These give you fingertip access to the color display, the on-board computer and many audio, telephone and navigation functions.

Superior safety meets sporty design in the form of optional LED main headlights including PDLS+. 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, seamless control means that you are able to see the course of the road, pedestrians and potential hazards earlier without hindering other road users.

With the optional Porsche Entry & Drive, you can leave your car key in your pocket. As soon as you grab the door handle, or your hand nears the Porsche Crest on the luggage compartment lid, the system automatically checks the encrypted access code on the key. Once the key is validated, the door or the luggage compartment lid unlocks. The engine can then be started and switched off using the electronic ignition switch.

The Sports seats are comfortable and provide support even during performance driving. They are equipped as standard with electric seat height and backrest adjustment and mechanical fore/aft adjustment.
Optional fully electric Sports seats offer a wider range of powered adjustments, such as lumbar support and seat squab angle and depth. A comprehensive memory function and electric steering column adjustment are also included.
Available as an option are Sports seats Plus in leather with electric seat height and backrest adjustment as well as mechanical fore/aft adjustment. The side bolsters on the squab and backrest have a firmer, sportier padding and offer even better lateral support.
Adaptive Sports seats Plus in leather are available on request. Featuring 18-way electric adjustment of seat positions, including side bolsters, they also come with a comprehensive memory function and electric steering column adjustment.
Sports bucket seats featuring a folding backrest, integral thorax airbag and manual fore/aft adjustment are available as optional equipment. The seat shells are made from glass- and carbon-fibre reinforced plastic with a carbon surface finish.
Seat heating is available as an option for all seats. Seats are heated in the squab, the backrest and, for the front seats, the side bolsters. Seat ventilation is also available on request (excluding Sports bucket seats) – for a pleasant and dry seating environment, even in hot weather.
The rear seats are remarkably comfortable for a sports car and the shelf behind offers additional storage space. With the backrests folded down, the luggage compartment volume in the rear of the 911 Carrera models increases to 260 litres and, with a capacity of 160 litres, the 911 Carrera Cabriolet models offer plenty of space for luggage, too.
ISOFIX child seat preparation including top tether (Coupé models only) is available on the rear seats as standard. On request, we can equip the front passenger seat with ISOFIX child seat preparation and integrate an airbag deactivation feature.
* Child seats are not compatible with the Sports bucket seats.

The electrically adjustable slide/tilt sunroof is available as an option for the 911 Coupé models. It opens outwards so that it does not interfere with headroom. Another advantage of this innovative design is the particularly large aperture for increased driving pleasure under the open sky. The net-type wind deflector protects against draught and further reduces wind noise.
Slide/tilt glass sunroof
On request, the electrically adjustable slide/tilt sunroof is available in tinted toughened safety glass. An integral electric roll-up sunblind provides shade from unwanted bright light. The build, headroom and aperture specifications of the glass sunroof are otherwise identical to those of the regular slide/tilt sunroof.

All models feature two-zone automatic climate control as standard, offering an enhanced ventilation effect and separate temperature controls for the driver and front passenger.
An active carbon filter traps particles, pollen and odours and an automatic airrecirculation function permanently monitors air quality, reduces humidity and switches from fresh to recirculated air when required. A demister function keeps the windows clear in cold weather. In warmer weather, strong sunlight is detected by a solar sensor, for which the air conditioning system automatically compensates in order to maintain the comfort of both the driver and front passenger.

Available as an option in conjunction with Porsche Doppelkupplung (PDK), this enhanced version of cruise control actively regulates the speed of your vehicle in line with the speed of the vehicle in front. A radar sensor scans the road ahead up to a distance of 200 m.
If Porsche Active Safe (PAS) detects that your vehicle is approaching the vehicle in front too quickly, the system issues an audible and a visual warning. Where necessary, this may be accompanied by a brief jolt of the brakes and the initiation of targeted braking. During this process, any braking by the driver is boosted to achieve the maximum braking force that the system is able to provide.
With the new 911, coasting is now possible even while adaptive cruise control is active.

New Lane Change Assist, available as an option, uses radar sensors to monitor the areas to the rear of the vehicle and the blind spots on either side. Above a speed of 15 km/h, the system issues a visual warning signal in the door mirror panel whenever a vehicle rapidly approaches your vehicle from behind or enters one of your blind spots. In this way, Lane Change Assist improves comfort and safety, particularly on motorways. However, the system does not actively intervene to control the vehicle and can be deactivated at any time.

Featuring four inconspicuous sensors in the rear end, the system audibly alerts the driver to the presence of obstacles detected behind the vehicle. An intermittent warning tone increases in rapidity as the obstacle is approached.
ParkAssist comes standard and monitors the front end with four additional sensors. The audible alert is supplemented by a visual warning in the central display screen, which shows a graphical representation of the vehicle from overhead.
The standard reversing camera facilitates precise reverse parking and manoeuvring. Help is provided in the form of the camera image and the dynamic, superimposed guidelines on the PCM screen, which illustrate the predicted course of the vehicle given the current position of the steering wheel.

The optional BOSE® Surround Sound System has been specially developed for the 911 models and is optimally tuned to the specific interior acoustics of these particular vehicles. The audio system features 12 fully active loudspeakers and amplifier channels including a patented 100-watt active subwoofer integral to the vehicle bodyshell. This fully active system setup enables each individual loudspeaker to be optimally adapted to the vehicle interior and transforms the 911 into a fast-moving concert hall. Total output 555 watts.

The road is perhaps the last place in the world in which you can still listen to music without disturbance. Reason enough, then, to upgrade your enjoyment the Porsche way – together with the most important manufacturer of premium quality sound systems in Germany.
The result is a sound performance of the highest level, specially matched to your 911. The system has 12 amplifier channels with a total output of 821 watts, 12 loudspeakers including an active subwoofer with 300-watt class D amplifier, a total diaphragm surface area of more than 1,340 cm2, and a frequency response of 35 Hz to 20 kHz.
The Burmester® system uses the patented integral subwoofer, which replaces the familiar separate subwoofer and loudspeaker arrangement of other systems. Analogue and digital filters have been optimally defined for their specific installation location. Ribbon tweeters (air motion transformers, AMT) have been used for unmistakably fine, clear and undistorted high-frequency sound reproduction with excellent level stability.
All loudspeaker housings are perfectly matched and deliver a natural and richly textured spatial sound, even at top volume.
