Our own engineering tradition is evident from the 'Dr. Ing.' in our company name. Also from our racing victories, now totalling more than 30,000. Not only more feats of heroism, but responsibility for the future of the sports car and for the environment. Then there is the 911's reputation as an iconic sports car. However, this reputation means nothing unless we continue to breathe new life into old ideas. For us, heritage and future are inseparably linked. Of course, we could simply have made a capable sports car, but this wouldn't have been a Porsche, and certainly not a 911.
Our identity is the 911. This is also, and especially, true in the 21st century. Instantly recognisable and originally engineered for the racetrack, it continues to stir the emotions today, just as it did in 1963.
Yet, is that enough to move forward? Above all, is it enough for you? Don't we need to break the stranglehold of tradition once in a while before it one day stifles innovation altogether? We believe that the answer is 'yes'. This is our approach to the preservation of tradition. It is precisely how we respond to the passion for the sports car and do justice to the 911 legend — and always with tomorrow in mind.
We have achieved this with a future-oriented design, with engines that consume comparatively little but deliver a considerable amount of power, with efficiency-enhancing technologies such as auto start/stop, thermal management and electrical system recuperation, with intelligent lightweight construction, with an innovative hood concept on the Cabriolet models, with Porsche Traction Management (PTM) active all-wheel drive, and with an interior that combines sophisticated ergonomics and sporty comfort.
All of that is what defines us. In short, it is the way in which we combine tradition and innovation, performance and everyday practicality, form and function. For us, these are not contradictions, but our motivation. We are referring to Intelligent Performance.
Our identity can be accurately described by many words. And three digits.
The 911. Porsche Identity.

The engines, as you would expect, are characterised by six horizontally opposed cylinders. The 3.4-litre engine in the 911 Carrera models produces 350 hp; in the 911 Carrera S models, the 3.8-litre engine develops 400 hp. All variants are equipped with direct fuel injection (DFI) and VarioCam Plus for increased power and comparatively low fuel consumption.
Power is transmitted to the wheels by the 7-speed manual gearbox with the highest gear designed specifically with fuel economy in mind or, optionally, by efficiencyenhanced Porsche Doppelkupplung (PDK), which offers gear changes with no interruption in the flow of power.
On the 911 Carrera all-wheel-drive models, the enhanced Porsche Traction Management (PTM) distributes the power to the wheels according to weather and road conditions. Handling is even more poised, particularly when the car is being driven to its limits. As a result, you are safer not just in the wet and snow, but also when adopting a sporty driving style.
The chassis is also packed with forwardlooking technology. Fitted as standard in the 911 Carrera S and 911 Carrera S Cabriolet, Porsche Torque Vectoring (PTV) increases dynamic performance. Available as an option for the S models, Porsche Dynamic Chassis Control (PDCC) improves dynamic performance further still. Dynamic engine mounts, available as an option for all models, provide perceptibly more precise handling — and not just when cornering.
The 911 has a lightweight composite construction in aluminum and steel. Used extensively and in just the right places, lightweight aluminum improves fuel economy and dynamic performance and helps to achieve an excellent weight to power ratio of 4.7 kg/kW (3.5 kg/hp) for the 911 Carrera S, for example.

To show you what we mean, we should start by taking a look at the car's exterior. Its long wheelbase helps to provide a high level of driving stability and excellent cornering dynamics. Overhangs are short at the front and rear, giving the 911 a compact and agile look.
The sporty overall impression is emphasised by the low roof line and by the wide track at the front. On the 911 Carrera all-wheel-drive models, the body is 44 mm wider at the rear. The resulting benefits include increased traction and agility.
The silhouette is therefore typically 911 and typical in terms of its development, which will now be described in more detail.
The vehicle architecture, with its wide track at the front axle and the low roof line, lends the front of the 911 a dynamic appearance that is both sporty and elegant. It has also helped us to achieve a low drag coefficient of 0.29 for the 911 Carrera.
Fitted as standard, the Bi-Xenon headlights have the familiar oval-shaped surrounds for classic appeal and reveal their technically impressive inner workings. LED main headlights including Porsche Dynamic Light System Plus (PDLS+) with dynamic cornering lights, speed-sensitive headlight range control and dynamic main beam are available as an option.
The indicators, daytime running lights and position lights are all LEDs and are integrated into the separate front light units. Their slimline design contrasts with that of the rounded headlights. Together with the two integral air intakes, they make the front of the 911 unmistakable.
At the rear, everything is clean and sharp: the styling, the appearance and the effect. This is due not least to the distinct lines and narrow LED taillights which accentuate the horizontal contouring of the rear. The illuminated rear light strip on the all-wheel-drive models further enhances the effect.
One unmistakable Porsche feature is the stainless steel tailpipes. On the S models, twin tailpipes are fitted on both sides. The wide rear spoiler is extendable, acting to reduce lift in all driving situations and further increase driving stability.
The 911 Carrera models and the 911 Carrera S models are equipped as standard with 19-inch and 20-inch wheels, respectively. Their large dimensions enhance the sporty presence of the 911. The tires have a large rolling circumference for improved comfort and performance.
Even the logo on the rear has an important function to perform. It is, after all, the hallmark of the Porsche identity.

At Porsche, we don't build everyday sports cars, we build sports cars for everyday use. How? By understanding that great agility and maximum comfort are not mutually exclusive but are, in fact, aspects of a harmonious overall concept.
This is especially true of the interior of the 911. Sportiness, functionality and high-quality materials combine to form a cohesive whole that is conducive to dynamic driving, even during everyday use.
This becomes clearer the moment you get in. The long wheelbase in all 911 models offers an astonishing amount of leg and head room.
Sportiness in harmony with comfort is the theme that is reflected in the clever ergonomics that characterise the entire interior design. The materials used, the layout of the controls and their operating logic belong to a modern-day sports car. Another is the ascending centre console. Its intelligent operating concept follows a clear principle of direct simplicity.
A classic 911 feature is the arrangement of the five round instruments with the rev counter in the middle. The instrument cluster is contemporary, featuring a high-resolution 4.6-inch color screen for viewing information relating to the adaptive cruise control function, the audio system, the speed limit indicator and more.
Acoustics are an integral part of the concept, particularly the engine sound. Available as an option is the Burmester® High-End Surround Sound System.
Optimised for the 911 Carrera model range, it features 12 loudspeakers and a total output of 821 watts for a perfect spatial sound.
The 911 proves that apparent opposites, such as style and engineering or comfort and performance, can go hand in hand. For us, there is no contradiction and certainly no need for compromise. After all, a strong personality does not deny the existence of opposites, it unites them.

In the 21st century, we find ourselves caught between all kinds of opposites on a daily basis: between the demands of our work life and our private life, between the real world and virtual reality. How can they all be reconciled? With a strong identity and a sports car that has incorporated many contradictory notions since 1963.
Sportiness and everyday practicality are a prime example. The new 911 Carrera is equipped as standard with direct fuel injection (DFI) and VarioCam Plus for high power, high torque, efficient combustion and, as a result, comparatively low fuel consumption.
Tradition and innovation blend seamlessly together in the 3.4-litre, six-cylinder horizontally opposed engine. The figures speak for themselves. The maximum power of 350 hp is available at 7400 rpm and the maximum torque of 287 lb.-ft. is generated at 5600 rpm. Even more impressively, the car accelerates from 0 to 60 mph in 4.6 seconds and reaches a top speed of 179 mph.
The 911 Carrera generates powerful forces, which are transmitted precisely and directly to the wheels by the 7-speed manual gearbox. As with the optional PDK, gears 1 to 6 have a sports ratio, while 7th gear has a long ratio for reduced fuel consumption. The SPORT button, which is fitted as standard, makes it possible to select an even more responsive engine and transmission setup.
In terms of form and function, the single tailpipes are especially imposing and emit a sound that is typically Porsche. The 19-inch Carrera wheels are fitted as standard and offer excellent driving stability and performance.
Sports car technology as standard, in the form of black four-piston aluminum monobloc fixed calipers, Porsche Stability Management (PSM) and Bi-Xenon headlights, shows that sportiness and safety are not mutually exclusive.
Sport, moderation, everyday practicality and style. Four key themes, one unifying concept: the 911 Carrera.

You could ask whether the sports car is still relevant. It would be a good question, but you might as well ask the same of dreams.
The answer to both questions lies in the future or, to be more precise, in the future of the sports car. In the 911, the future is already here. The highly efficient, stateof- the-art engines make a considerable contribution to the comparatively low fuel consumption, but their sound is still unmistakably Porsche.
The 911 engines are also unmistakably sporty thanks to the SPORT button fitted as standard. At the push of a button, the engine becomes tuned for a sharper response and engine dynamics that are even more direct.
The 3.4-litre engine of the 911 Carrera models demonstrates, therefore, that performance and efficiency need not be mutually exclusive. Rather, the downsized engine capacity and increased maximum torque are the intelligent basis by which power output can be increased in an environmentally acceptable and sustainable way. Fuel consumption and CO2 emissions have been reduced by up to 16 % compared with the previous model.
In their search for improved efficiency, our engineers analysed an extensive series of engine components. Answers were found, including rapid heating of the engine and gearbox to normal operating temperature after an engine start by the thermal management system, improved air induction and extremely effective direct fuel injection (DFI).
The same principle applies to the 3.8-litre engine in the 911 Carrera S models. There has been no change in displacement since the previous model, but power output has been increased while fuel consumption has been reduced by up to 15 %.
Weight is critical to efficiency. This is why the engines have a light-alloy construction, making them lightweight and yet structurally rigid. The result is comparatively low fuel consumption and a long service life.
The engine is the intelligent core of our identity. What else could the 'Dr. Ing.' in our company name possibly stand for?
The 911 Carrera base models are equipped with a 3.4-litre boxer engine with direct fuel injection (DFI) and VarioCam Plus. It develops 350 hp at 7400 rpm and the maximum torque is 287 lb.-ft. at 5600 rpm.
For the 911 Carrera with 7-speed manual gearbox, this means acceleration from 0 to 60 mph in 4.6 seconds and a top speed of 179 mph. The new 911 Carrera 4 accelerates to 60 mph in 4.7 seconds and has a top speed of 177 mph.
The 911 Carrera S models are powered by a 3.8-litre boxer engine with direct fuel injection (DFI) and VarioCam Plus. It produces 400 hp at 7400 rpm and the maximum torque of 325 lb.-ft. is achieved at 5600 rpm.
With optional Porsche Doppelkupplung (PDK), the 911 Carrera S accelerates from 0 to 60 mph in 4.3 seconds and achieves a top speed of 188 mph. The new Carrera 4S completes the 0 to 60 mph sprint in 4.3 seconds and boasts a top speed of 185 mph.
The EMS SDI 9.1 engine management system ensures optimum engine performance at all times. It controls, for example, the position of the electronic throttle valve (ETC) — a prerequisite for compatibility with the Porsche Stability Management (PSM), which comes as standard. It also regulates all enginerelated functions to achieve optimum fuel consumption, emissions and power output whatever the driving style.
Another function is the cylinder-specific knock control. Since the cylinders never all work under exactly the same conditions, the knock control function monitors each one separately. The ignition point is shifted individually, as and when necessary, to protect the cylinders and pistons at high engine speeds.
For compliance with EU standards, the on-board diagnostics detect any faults and defects that may occur in the exhaust and fuel systems and then notify the driver immediately. This also prevents increased pollutant emissions and unnecessary fuel consumption.

A widely held belief about motorsport is that power is the only thing that matters. From experience, we know better. Extra horsepower alone has never been enough to win a single race. Much more important to us are ideas — ideas that inspire more intelligent vehicle concepts and more efficient drive systems. The same applies on the road. It's about getting the most out of what you've got.
The auto start/stop function is standard in the 911 Carrera models. In cars with the manual gearbox, the engine switches off automatically when, for example, you stop at traffic lights, select neutral and release the clutch pedal.
In cars with Porsche Doppelkupplung (PDK), the engine switches off whenever you stop and leave your foot on the brake pedal.
All audio and communication systems remain switched on and the climate control continues to maintain your selected temperature. The only differences you will notice are the silence at the rear and the fuel saving. As soon as you operate the clutch or release the brake, the engine will restart swiftly and smoothly.
The auto start/stop function may remain inactive under particular circumstances, for example: extreme outside temperatures, when the SPORT button is selected or if battery charge is low. It is also possible to deactivate the function manually using a separate button on the centre console.
The thermal management system regulates the temperature in the engine and gearbox through the intelligent manipulation of heat flow.
In this way, the engine and gearbox reach their optimum operating temperature sooner. As a result, fuel consumption is reduced through increased combustion efficiency and lubrication performance. Electrical system recuperation
The 911 Carrera models are also equipped as standard with fuel-saving electrical system recuperation technology. The vehicle battery is recharged by the alternator predominantly under braking. Under acceleration, on the other hand, the power draw of the alternator is limited to increase the engine output available for driving. The electrical systems are supplied by the electrical energy stored during the recharging process.

The 'coasting' function available with Porsche Doppelkupplung (PDK) enables you to save even more fuel where the situation allows. The engine is decoupled from the transmission to prevent deceleration caused by engine braking. In this way, optimum use is made of the vehicle's momentum, allowing it to coast for longer distances.
For example, you may want to slow down from 62 to 49 mph in anticipation of the change of speed limit ahead. As soon as you release the accelerator pedal, PDK deselects the current gear automatically and you begin to coast in neutral until you have reached your desired speed. The moment you engage the accelerator or brake pedal, PDK selects the appropriate gear smoothly and seamlessly within a fraction of a second.
Another way to reduce fuel consumption is to utilise the coasting function on downhill gradients that are gentle enough for you to maintain a constant speed. Efficient on long journeys, such as on the motorway, PDK remains ready to respond as swiftly and precisely as you would expect.
In short, driving in coasting mode makes a real impact on fuel consumption without any need for compromise on comfort or sporty performance.

Pure, direct, precise. Short shift movements and an optimum transition from one gear to the next. That's exactly what you would expect of a Porsche manual gearbox.
What you might not have expected is a 7-speed manual gearbox that combines a high level of sporty performance with an equally high level of efficiency and offers extra comfort for longer journeys. It's an exceptional innovation, and not only in the sports car segment.
The design of this manual gearbox is based in principle on that of Porsche Doppelkupplung (PDK). Gears 1 to 6 have a sports ratio and top speed is reached in 6th gear. The additional 7th gear, however, has a long ratio, which reduces torque and helps to reduce fuel consumption. Lower engine revs at fast driving speeds also ensure a high level of comfort on long stretches of road. In addition, a gear indicator in the rev counter reminds you which gear has been selected. The upshift indicator in the instrument cluster helps you actively conserve fuel.
Thanks to the elevated centre console, the gear lever is within easy reach — ideal for sporty gear changes.
Whether you select a sporty or comfortable gear, the way you reach your destination is in your own hands.

Available as an option for all 911 Carrera models is 7-speed PDK, featuring manual and automatic modes. It facilitates extremely fast gear changes with no interruption in the flow of power, whilst at the same time improving acceleration and fuel efficiency.
The first six gears are particularly sporty, with top speed being reached in 6th gear. 7th gear has a long ratio and reduces the revs — for lower consumption.
PDK is essentially two gearboxes in one and thus requires two clutches. 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.
The effect is instant. Driving feels even sportier and more dynamic, and agility is increased. Depending on the gearshift programme (SPORT button activated or deactivated), the gear change is optimised for comfort or for sporty driving.
With the optional Sport Chrono Package, PDK is enhanced by the 'Launch Control' and 'motorsport-derived gearshift strategy' functions.

The exhaust system of the 911 Carrera models is a concept that delivers a clear statement, not only in terms of acoustics.
The stainless steel exhaust system comprises two distinctive and independent exhaust tracts. The catalytic converters heat up rapidly for effective emissions reduction.
A selectable two-tract sports exhaust system featuring distinctive polished stainless steel tailpipes is available as an option. Activated by a button, it produces an even more intensive sports car sound.

The resonance intake system increases the intake volume by exploiting the fact that air oscillates as it passes through the intake manifold. The system can adjust to engine speed. Benefits of this include higher torque at low engine speeds and a flatter torque curve. The 911 Carrera S models operate a two-stage system.
The entire intake system is made from lightweight plastic. In the 911 Carrera models, the resonator volume of the air filter housing varies with engine speed to bring added character to the engine sound, which becomes much more powerful at higher rpm.

DFI delivers fuel directly into the combustion chamber with millisecond precision. The spray and cone angles of the multi-hole injectors have been optimised for torque, power output, fuel consumption, emissions and efficient combustion.
With direct injection, the engine management system regulates injection timing individually for each cylinder as well as the injection rate for each cylinder bank. This improves the combustion process and fuel economy.
For faster heating of the catalytic converters after a cold start and optimum torque in the upper load range, up to three injection pulses take place per combustion cycle.
DFI improves the internal cooling of the combustion chamber by having the mixture prepared directly in the cylinder. This allows for a higher compression ratio, which helps to deliver more output at the same time as enhanced engine efficiency. Injection is regulated by the electronic engine management system and emissions are monitored by the Lambda sensors.

VarioCam Plus is a two-in-one engine concept for adjusting the intake camshafts and switching the lift of the intake valves.
The system first differentiates between driver inputs that typify normal, everyday driving and those inputs that demand maximum performance. The electronic engine management system then seamlessly adapts valve operation to the prevailing conditions.
This results in instant acceleration, extremely smooth running and an extraordinary level of tractive power, but with a comparatively low level of fuel consumption.

Integrated dry-sump lubrication ensures a reliable supply of oil even when a sporty driving style is adopted. It also has additional cooling functions.
The oil tank is located in the engine, thereby eliminating the need for an external oil tank, which saves both space and weight. To reduce power loss and increase efficiency, an electronically controlled oil pump supplies the lubricating points inside the engine as and when required. When demand is low, the oil pump is operated at reduced power, thereby saving fuel.

Another possible definition of efficiency is a system that works only when it is needed, and then does so in a particularly effective way.
This was the guiding principle for our engineers in the development of the electromechanical power steering. Statis- tics show that a car drives in a straight line 90% of the time. Unlike conventional hydraulic pumps, the electric motor uses energy only when the steering wheel is actually turned. The absence of hydraulic fluid also makes the system more beneficial to the environment.
As far as the other 10% is concerned, we're optimally prepared as the steering system is typically Porsche. It features a variable steering ratio and responds sensitively and directly at the same time as providing customary agility, a high level of comfort and precisely selected feedback from the road. Our definition of efficient.
Power steering Plus, the comfort-enhancing power steering system, is available as an option for the 911 Carrera models. At high speeds, the steering is as firm as possible, ensuring maximum precision whilst steer- ing comfort remains as high. At low speeds, the steering ratio of Power steering Plus adjusts for much easier manoeuvring and parking.

Fitted as standard, 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, coasting mode and the auto start/stop function are automatically deactivated. If fitted, the optional sports exhaust system is also activated automatically.
The Sport Chrono Package including dynamic engine mounts is available as an option. This integrated system provides simultaneous enhancement for the chassis, engine and transmission. Included in the package are a performance display, a digital and an analogue stopwatch and the SPORT PLUS button. An additional display in the steering wheel and instrument cluster indicates whether the SPORT buttons and Launch Control have been activated.
On activation of SPORT PLUS mode, Porsche Active Suspension Management (PASM) and, in the 911 Carrera S models, optional Porsche Dynamic Chassis Control (PDCC) switch to a harder damping setting and offer more direct steering and, therefore, better roadholding.
In SPORT PLUS mode, the trigger threshold for PSM is raised. Agility is perceptibly enhanced when braking for corners with PSM, allowing sportier braking and exit acceleration. For even greater dexterity, PSM can be set to standby while the car is still in SPORT PLUS mode. For safety, it is set to intervene automatically only when ABS assistance is required on both the front wheels.
In combination with PDK, the Sport Chrono Package has two additional functions for a sporty drive that borders on a motorsport experience. The first is 'Launch Control', which can be used on the track to achieve the best possible standing start — a racing start.
The second function is the 'motorsport-derived gearshift strategy'. Using this, Porsche Doppelkupplung (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.
A key component of the Sport Chrono Package is the stopwatch mounted on the dashboard. In conjunction with optional 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.
A feature of the Sport Chrono Package borrowed from motorsport is the dynamic engine mounts. These exploit the laws of physics for your own driving pleasure.

You don't have to take the 911 onto the racetrack. But you can, more so than ever, because dynamic engine mounts are now included as part of the Sport Chrono Package.
The electronically controlled system minimises the oscillations and vibrations of the entire drivetrain, especially the engine, and combines the benefits of a hard or soft engine mounting arrangement.
A hard engine mounting delivers optimum dynamic performance because it offers the highest degree of handling precision possible. Soft engine mounts, on the other hand, minimise oscillations and vibrations. While comfort is improved on uneven road surfaces, this comes at the expense of dynamic performance.
Our engineers have solved this problem by enabling the engine mounts to adapt their stiffness and damping properties to changes in driving style and road surface conditions. This has been achieved by use of a fluid with magnetic properties in interaction with an electrically generated field. For the driver, the results are tangible. Handling is perceptibly more stable under load change conditions and in fast corners. Whenever a less assertive driving style is adopted, the dynamic engine mounts provide a higher level of comfort.

PTV in conjunction with the manual gearbox, or PTV Plus with Porsche Doppelkupplung (PDK), are available as options for the 911 Carrera models and standard in the S models. Both systems actively enhance vehicle dynamics and stability. Operating in conjunction with a mechanical (PTV) or electronic (PTV Plus) rear differential lock, they work by intelligently braking the rear wheels as the situation demands.
As a function of steering angle and steering speed, accelerator pedal position, yaw rate and vehicle speed, PTV and PTV Plus are able to improve steering response and steering precision by specific braking of the right or left rear wheel.
To be more precise, this means that 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 as the car enters the corner.
At low and medium vehicle speeds, PTV and PTV Plus significantly increase agility and steering precision. At high speeds and when accelerating out of corners, the rear differential lock ensures greater driving stability. With PTV, the differential lock is regulated mechanically; with PTV Plus, it is regulated electronically and the torque distribution is infinitely variable. Whichever system is fitted, it interacts with Porsche Stability Management (PSM) to improve driving stability on a range of surface conditions, including the wet and snow.
For the driver, this means remarkable stability, easier handling and outstanding traction as well as greater agility at every speed with precise steering and stable load transfer characteristics. What else? Unrivalled driving pleasure at every twist and turn.
PASM, the electronic damping control system, is standard in the 911 Carrera S models and available as an option for the 911 Carrera models… LEARN MORE »
PASM, the electronic damping control system, is standard in the 911 Carrera S models and available as an option for the 911 Carrera models. It actively and continuously regulates damping forces according to driving style and road conditions. In addition, the suspension is lowered by 10 mm.
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.
To ensure efficient control interventions, a multitude of sensors in the 911 record the body movements that accompany powerful acceleration, braking or uneven road surfaces. The PASM control unit evaluates the driving conditions and modifies the damping force on each of the wheels in accordance with the selected mode.
In 'Sport' mode, the suspension is set to a harder damper rating. On uneven roads, PASM immediately switches to a softer rating, thereby improving contact between the wheels and the road. When the road surface improves, PASM automatically reverts to the original, harder rating. If 'Normal' mode is selected and the driver's style becomes more assertive, PASM automatically switches to a harder rating. Damping firms up, and driving stability and road safety are increased.
The results are tangible: increased driving stability, improved comfort and enhanced performance.
The PASM sports suspension is available as an option for the 911 Carrera CoupÃ© models in conjunction with 20-inch wheels and Porsche Torque Vectoring (PTV) or Porsche Torque Vectoring Plus (PTV Plus).
The ride height is 20 mm lower than with the standard suspension or 10 mm compared 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 a more sporty geometry, the rear spoiler extends even further. These not only further reduce lift at the front axle, but also provide downforce at the rear axle for improved aerodynamics and even better performance.

It's easy, and even makes sense, to carry on in your usual way, but what happens if a sudden change of direction leaves you thrown off course? Then, it all comes down to personal strength.
A Porsche has a clear sense of purpose and is the embodiment of strength. It demonstrates this with sporty and precise handling and excellent roadholding.
With the optional Porsche Dynamic Chassis Control (PDCC) for the S models of the 911 Carrera, these characteristics can be further accentuated: the vehicle holds the road even better and delivers even sportier performance.
PDCC is an active anti-roll system that suppresses lateral body movement during cornering manoeuvres. In addition, it minimises the lateral instability of the vehicle on uneven ground.
This effect is achieved with the aid of hydraulic stabilising actuators in the form of cylinders designed to optimise camber. Lateral roll is counteracted by forces generated at each individual wheel, based on steering angle and lateral acceleration.
The results are improved dynamic performance and increased ride comfort at all speeds, as well as optimised turn-in and stable load transfer characteristics.
In simple terms, the tires and vehicle hold the road better and you can steer through corners faster and in a more relaxed manner.
PDCC sets standards for handling performance, ride comfort and driving pleasure. In the 911, your 'usual' way suddenly becomes the Porsche way.

The 911 Carrera models are equipped with 19-inch Carrera wheels as standard. These are lightweight alloys featuring a classic sporty design. Tire sizes are 235/40 ZR 19 and 285/35 ZR 19 at the front and rear, respectively. All-wheel-drive models are fitted with even wider 295/35 ZR 19 tires at the rear.
The S models are equipped with light-alloy 20-inch Carrera S wheels as standard. The visual effect is sporty and dynamic. The tires are slightly wider to cope with the increased power output of these models: 245/35 ZR 20 at the front, 295/30 ZR 20 at the rear. All-wheel-drive models have 305/30 ZR 20 tires at the rear.
The large tire size improves both ride comfort and track performance. Rolling resistance, dry braking distances and tire weight are all comparatively low, thereby helping to reduce fuel consumption.
A selection of 20-inch wheels is available in our range of options.
Integrated as standard, Tire Pressure Monitoring (TPM) sends warnings to the on-board computer's display screen in the event of low tire pressure or a gradual or sudden loss of pressure. The individual pressures in all four tires can be displayed in the instrument cluster.

The independent suspension at the front features a lightweight spring-strut axle with longitudinal and transverse links and cross members that have been refined for stiffness. Each front wheel is precisely located, ensuring excellent directional stability, superior handling and reduced pitching under braking, and the wide track optimises turn-in.
The rear axle is equipped with a motorsport-derived multi-link suspension and chassis subframe. Refined axle kinematics for improved longitudinal damping reduce acceleration squat and increase comfort. Lightweight spring struts further enhance agility.
The high proportion of aluminum used in the construction of the axles reduces the weight of the vehicle and of the unsprung masses, helping to improve fuel economy, comfort and agility.

Another crucial piece of the Porsche identity is the brakes. We value them as highly as we do our engines and chassis. They set standards for deceleration and stability, and give the driver the reassurance needed to push the car to the limits of its performance.
The 911 Carrera base models are fitted front and rear with anodised black four-piston aluminum monobloc fixed calipers. All brake discs have a diameter of 330 mm.
On the S models, we have fitted larger brakes and more brake pistons to cope with the higher engine power of these models. Consequently, they feature red six-piston monobloc aluminum fixed brake calipers at the front and four-piston aluminum monobloc fixed calipers at the rear. The brake disc diameter is 340 mm at the front and 330 mm at the rear. The results are enhanced braking performance and stability.
On all models, the brake calipers have an enclosed monobloc construction. This makes them tougher but lighter 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 better performance in the wet.
Other benefits of the standard braking system include the anti-lock braking system (ABS), designed to keep deceleration constant. Pedal effort is reduced and braking response improved by an 8-/9-inch tandem vacuum brake booster. In the S models, brake disc cooling is further enhanced by the inclusion of air spoilers.
The electric parking brake, which you can activate and deactivate manually, releases automatically as you pull away.
With the hill-hold function, you can pull away without ever rolling back. The system automatically detects when the vehicle has come to a halt on an uphill gradient requiring intervention. PSM then maintains the brake pressure at all four wheels to prevent the vehicle from moving in the opposite direction.

From the start, Porsche has been synonymous with motorsport. Ever since 1948, when we found our identity on the racetrack, we have taken the experience we have gained and transferred it to the road. The optional Porsche Ceramic Composite Brake (PCCB) is a fine example. This brake system has already had to cope with the harshest requirements of motor racing and is fitted in cars that compete in demanding events, such as the Porsche Mobil 1 Supercup. The cross-drilled PCCB ceramic brake discs for the 911 Carrera have a diameter of 350 mm front and rear for even more formidable braking performance.
The use of six-piston aluminum monobloc fixed brake calipers on the front axle and four-piston units at the rear — all finished in yellow — ensures extremely high brake forces which, crucially, are exceptionally consistent.
PCCB enables shorter braking distances in even the toughest road and race conditions. The key advantage of PCCB is the extremely low weight of the ceramic brake discs, which are approximately 50% lighter than standard discs of similar design and size.
As well as enhancing performance and fuel economy, this represents a major reduction in unsprung and rotating masses.
The consequence is better roadholding and increased comfort, particularly on uneven roads, as well as greater agility and improved handling.
The demands of racetrack use mean that additional maintenance tasks will be required alongside the routine maintenance work scheduled as part of standard maintenance intervals.

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 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.

As standard, the 911 Carrera models are equipped with enhanced Porsche Stability Management (PSM), which 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. If the car begins to oversteer or understeer, PSM applies selective braking on individual wheels to restore stability.Under acceleration on wet or low-grip road surfaces, PSM improves traction using the automatic brake differential (ABD) and anti-slip regulation (ASR). When the SPORT PLUS mode of the optional Sport Chrono Package is selected, the PSM threshold is raised to allow a sportier driving style.
For an even more dynamic experience, you always have the option to deactivate PSM. It is automatically reactivated, for your safety, only if you brake harder and either of the front wheels (in SPORT PLUS mode, both of the front wheels) requires ABS assistance. ABS and ABD, however, remain active at all times.
PSM therefore offers a high level of driving stability and safety combined with extraordinary agility. It's an apparent contradiction in terms, but an intrinsic part of the Porsche identity.

The 911 Carrera 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 (e.g. frontal or offset frontal). In less serious accidents, the airbags are only partially inflated, thereby minimising discomfort to the occupants.
In addition to the central airbag control unit on the transmission tunnel, a pair of impact sensors are located near the headlights. This allows a crash to be detected and evaluated not just sooner, but with even greater accuracy.
CoupÃ© or Cabriolet, the 911 models are 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 litres and each head airbag 15 litres, ensuring excellent protection in the event of a side impact.
Despite their low weight, the 911 Carrera Cabriolet models have exemplary torsional rigidity and flexural strength. Body flexing is minimal even on irregular road surfaces.
Increased protection is provided by an automatically deploying roll-over protection system 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. If the car were to overturn, the roll-over bars would be deployed instantly.

The innovative bodyshell of the 911 fulfils two structural design requirements: first, excellent driving dynamics due to the body's extremely high rigidity; second, a low vehicle weight primarily as a result of the intelligent lightweight construction.
To meet the second requirement, we employed state-of-the-art techniques for combining various materials in order to utilise specific material properties exactly where they are needed.
For the bodyshell, therefore, we used very thin, but nevertheless extremely rigid, sheets of steel. Aluminum and magnesium were used extensively in areas such as the roof, underbody, front end, doors, rear wings and engine compartment and luggage compartment lids. Magnesium, which is a particularly lightweight material, was also selected for the cockpit and centre console support beam and, in the Cabriolet models, the hood shell elements.
Such material efficiency is key to reducing the overall weight and, as a result, fuel consumption of the vehicle.
For the driver, this intelligent blend of materials reduces the weight of the vehicle and offers a high level of comfort thanks to excellent vibration-damping characteristics and particularly high composite rigidity, a high degree of dynamic torsional stiffness, and especially sporty handling.
The long wheelbase improves comfort as well as straight-line accuracy and driving stability at high speeds and in fast corners.

All 911 Carrera models are equipped as standard with an immobiliser with in-key transponder and an alarm system with radar-based interior surveillance. The system secures the doors, luggage compartment, passenger compartment and ignition lock.
Available as an option, this preparation enables future installation of the Porsche Vehicle Tracking System (PVTS) available from Porsche Tequipment. The system makes it possible to locate a stolen vehicle across most of the countries in Europe. The preparation package includes a special wiring loom and a tilt sensor for the alarm system.

Driving a 911 is first and foremost about the feel of the road in the original, unadulterated and direct sense. Is it possible, then, to mention the 911 and comfort in the same breath? To speak of systems that make driving 'more agreeable', or of materials that feel 'pleasant' to the touch? Good question.
In reality, however, should anyone really be forced to choose one over the other? Let's introduce ourselves to the concept of sporty comfort — dynamic performance that maintains composure even when pushed to the extreme.
Engineering and style — and Porsche identity on the inside, as demonstrated by the ascending centre console. In typical Porsche fashion, the use of form follows a basic principle: focus on the driver. This is why the distance between the gear lever or selector and steering wheel is extremely short and the operating logic, such as that of the two-zone air conditioning system or the suspension settings, is clear and uncomplicated. You shouldn't have to browse one submenu after another. You should instead be able to concentrate on what's important: the road.
Our materials are high-quality with a sporty character. The steering wheel rim, door pulls and armrests are in leather, for instance. Alcantara has proven its worth in motorsport and is used as standard for the roof lining of the Coupe models.
In addition to the choice of Black, Platinum Grey, Luxor Beige and Yachting Blue 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, aluminum or high-quality wood.
Engineering that takes you forward: standard Porsche Communication Management (PCM) with navigation module and a high-resolution 7-inch color touchscreen. PCM is your control centre for audio, navigation and communication functions.
Another element of the Porsche identity is sound. Available as an option is the BOSE® Surround Sound System with a total output of 445 watts. In short, it delivers powerful audio playback combined with an impressive spatial sound.
No system promises such high standards in the 911, and fulfils them, as the optional High-End Surround Sound System from Burmester®, the bespoke manufacturer based in Berlin and one of the most respected premium audio manufacturers worldwide. With a total output of 821 watts, it ensures an incredible audio experience.
Our patented integral subwoofer enhances the bass performance of both optional sound systems and also saves weight. Typically Porsche.
Ergonomics, style and sound. Sports car technology, intelligently combined.

In the 911, there is a point at which all forces come together. The steering wheel is the most important interface between the driver and the sports car. This is why all available steering wheels feature a high-grip steering wheel rim in smoothfinish leather and offer outstanding ergonomics. A full-size airbag is integrated as standard.
The sports steering wheel is fitted as standard and adjusts up to 40 mm for height and up to 60 mm for reach.
The optional multifunction steering wheel has four function buttons and two thumbwheels for convenient operation of audio, telephone and navigation functions, TFT display and onboard computer. On request, the steering wheel is available in smooth-finish leather, carbon or mahogany.
In conjunction with PDK, the steering wheels are equipped with two ergonomic gearshift switches enabling you to change gear directly from the steering wheel. With the optional Sport Chrono Package, the steering wheel also features a display above the airbag module to inform you whether the SPORT, SPORT PLUS and Launch Control functions have been activated.
As with the sports steering wheel, the optional SportDesign steering wheel is adjustable for both height and reach and, thanks to its grip mouldings, it's in safe hands — even on the sportiest of drives.
In conjunction with PDK, the steering wheel features two gearshift paddles. These are made from a strong alloy and are ergonomically located behind the left- and right-hand steering wheel spokes. Pull the right-hand paddle and PDK shifts up. Pull the left-hand paddle and PDK shifts down. When PDK has been combined with the optional Sport Chrono Package, the left- and right-hand spokes additionally feature a display that tells you whether the SPORT, SPORT PLUS and Launch Control functions have been activated.
For increased comfort on cold days, steering wheel heating is available as an option for the sports steering wheel and multifunction steering wheels. The heating is operated by a button on the rear of the lower steering wheel spoke.

Sporty not kitsch, practical not fanciful. The five round instruments have one purpose above all: to provide information. They do so efficiently and accurately. Their styling is typically Porsche with the rev counter exactly where you would expect it to be: in the middle.
The instrument cluster with a high-resolution 4.6-inch TFT color screen provides you with a continuous stream of data from the on-board computer, such as trip mileage, journey time or average fuel consumption. It also displays the navigation system map, delivers various warnings, including alerts from the Tire Pressure Monitoring (TPM) system and, in 911 Carrera 4 models, tells you the current front/rear axle torque distribution. You can also use it to personalise various in-car settings.

Sports seats - 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.
Sports seats Plus
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 firmer, sportier padding and offer even better lateral support.
Fully electric Sports seats
If you don't want to sacrifice sportiness for comfort, the optional fully electric Sports seats offer electric adjustment of seat height, backrest angle, squab angle, squab depth, fore/aft position, four-way lumbar support and even the steering column.
The integrated memory package supports the exterior mirrors and all seat positions on the driver's side as well as, for example, the settings for the steering wheel, lights, wipers, air conditioning, door locks, optional PCM, and instrument cluster.
Adaptive Sports seats Plus
The optional adaptive Sports seats Plus are the ideal combination of sport and comfort. Finished in leather and with side bolsters having a firm, sporty padding, they also feature shoulder supports for the best possible hold.
Offering 18-way electric adjustment, the seats can be optimally adapted to meet your needs in terms of seat height, squab and backrest angle, squab length, fore/aft adjustment and four-way lumbar support. The steering column is also electrically adjustable.
In addition, the side bolsters on the seat squab and backrest are independently adjustable for added comfort on long journeys and precision lateral support on winding roads. Also included is the personal memory for all seat positions (apart from the side bolsters) and lumbar support on the driver's side as well as the positions of the steering wheel and exterior mirrors. The memory function also supports various settings, such as for the lights, wipers, air conditioning, door locks, optional PCM, and instrument cluster.
Sports bucket seats*
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 (CFRP) with a carbon surface finish.
Seat heating and ventilation
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.
In conjunction with seat heating, we can equip the seats (except for the Sports bucket seats) with seat ventilation on request. A slipstream effect is produced by active ventilation of the perforated seat centre and backrest and by passive aeration at the side bolsters. This evaporates perspiration moisture and therefore makes for a dry and pleasant 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 911 Carrera CoupÃ© 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 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.

Available as an option, this cruise control function regulates your speed according to the distance between your vehicle and the vehicle in front. A radar sensor monitors the road ahead up to a distance of 200 m. If you have set a cruising speed but have begun to gain on the vehicle in front because it is driving more slowly, this is detected by the radar sensor.
The system now reduces the speed of your vehicle at a maximum rate of 3.5 m/sec2 by restricting the throttle or by applying the brakes appropriate to the prevailing situation until the distance that you have preset is maintained. Your vehicle will now continue at a reduced speed. If the other vehicle decelerates further, adaptive cruise control will continue to reduce your cruising speed — even down to a halt.
For additional safety, if the system detects that the distance from the vehicle in front is decreasing, it will also prepare your vehicle for braking by precharging the braking system so that the brake pads are already in light contact with the brake discs. However, drivers still have to perform heavier braking themselves. As soon as the road ahead clears again, your vehicle will accelerate back up to the cruising speed originally set.
If your vehicle approaches the vehicle in front too quickly, Porsche Active Safe (PAS) will issue audible and visual warnings. In addition, the system briefly jerks the brakes and if necessary initiates target braking, with any braking pressure applied by the driver being increased within certain system limits

The electrically adjustable slide/tilt sunroof is available as an option for all 911 Carrera CoupÃ© models. It opens outwards so that it does not interfere with headroom. Another advantage of this special design is the large aperture for increased driving pleasure under the open sky. The two-position net-type wind deflector protects against draught and further reduces wind noise.
The electrically adjustable slide/tilt sunroof is also available in tinted singleglazed safety glass. An integral electric sunblind provides shade from unwanted bright light. It is available in five different colors. The design, headroom and aperture of the glass roof are identical to those of the regular slide/tilt sunroof. The only difference is that, even when closed, the glass sunroof still gives you that open-to-the-sky feeling.

The 911 models feature two-zone automatic climate control as standard with an enhanced ventilation effect and separate temperature controls for the driver and front passenger. The available air conditioning modes are gentle, normal and strong.
An active carbon filter traps particles, pollen and odours and an automatic air-recirculation 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, a solar sensor helps the climate control to detect strong sunlight and automatically compensate for the comfort of both the driver and front passenger.
As an option, it is possible to have a programmable garage door opener integrated into the overhead console. At the push of a button, it controls up to three different garage doors, lighting systems or alarm systems.
This automatic speed control function is available as an option. For greater driver comfort on long stretches of road, cruise control operates in the 18—149 mph speed range and is activated using a button on the steering column control stalk.
The optional light design package is both practical and aesthetically appealing. It comprises dimmable LEDs in the overhead console and in the areas of the door pulls, door storage compartments, front footwells and rear seats.
For convenience, particularly at night, the 'Welcome Home' lighting function automatically switches on the LED daytime running lights for a defined period whenever the vehicle is opened or closed using the key remote.
A customisable delayed switch-off timer keeps the daytime running lights, the taillights and, where applicable, the courtesy lights switched on until you reach your front door.
ParkAssist is fitted as standard in the 911 Carrera Cabriolet models and is available as an option for the 911 Carrera CoupÃ© models. 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.
An enhanced version of ParkAssist, with four sensors in the front end, is available as an option. 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 optional reversing camera (only in conjunction with ParkAssist (front and rear), and with PCM) facilitates precise reverse parking and manoeuvring. Help is provided in the form of the camera image and the dynamic, superimposed guidelines on the central display screen, which illustrate the predicted course of the vehicle given the current position of the steering wheel.
With the optional Porsche Entry & Drive, you can leave your car key in your pocket. As soon as you grab the door handle or approach the luggage compartment, 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.
To lock the vehicle, you simply press the button on the outside of the door handle. Porsche Entry & Drive then locks the vehicle and activates the engine immobiliser and steering column lock.

When two iconic German manufacturers join forces, the result is special. We're referring to Porsche and Berlin-based BurmesterBurmester®, one of the most respected manufacturers of high-end audio equipment worldwide, and the BurmesterBurmester® High-End Surround Sound System. The technologies behind the system are based on the finest premium home audio systems BurmesterBurmester® has to offer.
The system owes its eminence to countless details, and one goal: perfection in sound. 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.
In the 911 models, the BurmesterBurmester® system uses the patented integral subwoofer, which replaces the familiar separate subwoofer and loudspeaker arrangement of other systems. This saves weight and has a beneficial impact on acoustic performance.
Crossover technology has been carried over more or less unmodified from the home audio sector. Analogue and digital filters have been optimally defined for their new installation location and finely tuned after extensive in-car audio testing.
The tweeters are ribbon-based air motion transformers (AMT) and ensure unmistakably fine, clear and undistorted high-frequency sound reproduction with excellent level stability. All loudspeaker housings are perfectly matched and deliver superior bass foundation, definition and impulse accuracy. As yet unequalled in the 911, the result is a natural and richly textured spatial sound even at top volume.
The pure, sporty design with galvanised surrounds and BurmesterBurmester® logos on selected loudspeakers make it clear that the appeal of the BurmesterBurmester® High-End Surround Sound System is as much about the visual as it is the audio. Typically Porsche.

The sound of a Porsche is a unique characteristic, and we're not referring only to the engine. The optional BOSE® Surround Sound System was specially developed for the 911 and is therefore perfectly tuned to the car's specific interior acoustics.
It has a total output of 445 watts and comprises eight amplifier channels, 12 loudspeakers and a patented integral 100-watt active subwoofer. The combined effect is a balanced acoustic pattern that transforms your 911 into a fast-moving concert hall.In combination with the Porsche Communication Management (PCM) system, the BOSE® Surround Sound System enables audio playback of DVDs and is thus able to make full use of the impressive sound spectrum of 5.1 digital recordings. Of course, you can still play other audio sources, such as CDs and MP3s, in stereo or, at the push of a button, in one of the virtual surround modes generated by BOSE® Centerpoint® 2.
The BOSE®-patented AudioPilot® noise compensation technology uses a microphone to continuously measure the ambient noise inside the vehicle and adapts music playback instantly and automatically so that a consistent sound is maintained — whatever the driving conditions.
The result is a powerful sound and captivating 360Â° acoustic experience.

The optional quadband GSM telephone module offers convenience and excellent reception. With a SIM inserted directly into the integral SIM card reader of the PCM system, calls can be made using the hands-free facility. For even more convenience, the Bluetooth® capability of a mobile phone can be used to make calls via the SIM Access Profile (SAP). Once the connection has been established automatically, the mobile phone's aerial is switched off to conserve battery charge and the phone operates via the car aerial. Depending on the mobile phone model, this gives access not only to the numbers on the SIM card, but also to the phone's internal memory. Depending on the phone, it can also be controlled using PCM, the optional multifunction steering wheel or the optional voice control system, without it ever leaving your pocket.
The telephone module also enables you to establish a Bluetooth® link with those mobile phones that support only the Handsfree Profile (HFP). In this case, the GSM connection is always established through the aerial of the mobile phone. PCM acts as a hands-free system and you can leave the mobile phone tucked away.
On request, a Bluetooth® handset for the telephone module is also available. Stored in the centre console, it features a display and keypad. However, the handset cannot be used for Bluetooth® links established using the Handsfree Profile (HFP).
Mobile phone preparation is available as an option so that a Bluetooth® connection can be established with those mobile phones that support only the Handsfree Profile (HFP). This function also enables you to leave your mobile phone tucked away. The PCM system is able to control only the basic functions of the mobile phone. The GSM connection is established through the aerial of the mobile phone.
* Mobile phone preparation or telephone module in HFP mode: The use of a mobile phone inside a car may cause an increase in the interior electromagnetic field strength and, accordingly, in the electromagnetic radiation to which passengers are exposed. If a cradle is used to mount the mobile phone, the field strength in the passenger compartment can be reduced because your phone can be connected up to the external aerial (feature depends on how specific mobile phones connect to the cradle). For information about the availability of a cradle for your mobile phone, please contact an independent accessories retailer. The use of the telephone module for PCM via Bluetooth® SAP connection or with inserted SIM card prevents exposure to electromagnetic radiation as only the car's external aerial is ever used.

This is achieved, on the one hand, through the use of fuel-efficient technologies such as auto start/stop, thermal management, electrical system recuperation, direct fuel injection, VarioCam Plus and, in conjunction with optional PDK, coasting mode.
On the other hand, catalytic converters developed for the 911 provide efficient emission control.
The stereo Lambda control circuitry controls and monitors each cylinder bank separately. For each exhaust tract, oxygen sensors regulate the composition of the exhaust gas, while another Lambda sensor on each cylinder bank monitors pollutant conversion in the respective catalytic converter.

Intelligent lightweight construction has been fundamental to the Porsche identity since 1948, for both technical and ecological reasons. This forms the basis for achieving low fuel consumption values in conjunction with outstanding performance.
On the technical side, we use a high proportion of aluminum, magnesium, plastics and super-high-strength sheet steel. The materials used have been selected for their ability to withstand load, yet they are considerably lighter than conventional steel.
On the ecological side, all materials used are meticulously selected. All synthetic components are easily recyclable and each material is labelled to facilitate its separation for recycling. The reduction in the number of plastic variants helps to ensure more efficient recycling. Recycled plastics are used where they meet our exacting technical requirements.
In short, the 911 is around 95% recoverable.
In addition, Porsche uses a high proportion of environmentally friendly water-based paints. For us, environmental protection does not begin at the end of a vehicle's life. It starts at the planning and development stage.

All Porsche models — including the 911 — are designed to operate on fuels with an ethanol content of up to 10%, e.g. 'E10'. Ethanol has a positive impact on the CO2 balance since the plants grown for the production of this biofuel also absorb CO2 from the atmosphere.
The release of hydrocarbons from the fuel system has been minimised thanks, in no small part, to the active carbon filter and the multilayered material from which the fuel tank is made. All fuel lines are made from multilayered plastic, steel or aluminum.
