For example, larger exhaust turbochargers and piezo injectors are used for the first time. Exhaust manifolds derived from the 911 GT2 RS improve responsiveness and efficiency, thanks to optimised flow ratios.
Charge-air cooling and engine air intake have been completely redesigned. Previously, air for the intercooler was supplied via side air intakes in the rear wings and the aspirated engine air via a tailgate grille. This principle has been swapped over in the new 911
The result: impressive. Extremely sporty. In the 911
The completely redeveloped 8-speed
PASM is an electronic damping control system that actively and continuously adjusts the damping force on each wheel, based on current road conditions and driving style – for reduced body roll and thus for improved comfort and increased dynamics.
For the first time in the 911
The system has been continuously enhanced. It is now more robust and offers improved control. The result: increased precision and resilience.
This system enhances vehicle dynamics and stability by applying brake pressure to the rear wheels, in conjunction with a rear differential lock. 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.
Rear-axle steering enhances performance and suitability for everyday use in equal measure. The advantage for day-to-day driving: at low speeds, the system steers the rear wheels in the opposite direction to that of the front wheels. This leads to a virtual shortening of the wheelbase. The advantage for sporty driving: at high speeds, the system steers the rear wheels in the same direction as that of the front wheels.
The further development of the lift system on the front axle allows more ground clearance at the front of the new 911
PDCC is an active roll stabilisation system. It suppresses the vehicle's lateral body movement during dynamic cornering manoeuvres. A permanently controlled rolling torque distribution between the front and rear axles ensures that the handling is ideally adjusted for every driving conditions. For improved dynamic performance, even more neutral handling and increased ride comfort – whatever the speed.
The new active air intake flaps in the front air intakes, the pneumatically extendible front spoiler made of flexible elastomer and the variable rear wing are pivotal here. Both the front spoiler and the rear wing are extended and retracted synchronously in several positions.
Also new: the Airbrake function. During emergency braking from high speeds, it has – depending on the selected driving programme – a positive influence on the braking distance by automatically (additionally) extending the front spoiler and rear wing.
Designed to reduce fuel consumption during everyday trips and achieve superlative performance on sporty drives: the new active air intake flaps in the front air intakes. The flaps close automatically while the car is in motion, thereby reducing drag. On demand or in Sport, Sport Plus or PSM Sport mode, the flaps open, helping 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.
The seamless, one-piece light strip including ‘PORSCHE’ logo at the rear connects the three-dimensional LED taillights.
The variable front spoiler can be extended lower than the previous model, further optimising the aerodynamics.
The new 911
Tangible motorsport emotion: the GT sports steering wheel is fitted as standard in the new 911
¹Race-Tex is a race-track-approved microfibre material with a high-quality look and feel, similar to suede. It has a comfortable, soft grip and offers good hold. It is durable and easy to care for.
The optional light design package is both practical and aesthetically appealing. It includes dimmable LEDs in the centre console, around the door handles, door storage compartments, front footwells and rear seats. You have the choice between seven lighting colours.
The fully electric Sports seats (14-way) have been completely redesigned. Seat height and backrest adjustment can be adjusted electrically, as can the fore/aft position, the lumbar support and the seat squab angle and depth. A comprehensive memory function is also included. The headrests are embossed with the ‘turbo’ or ‘turbo S’ logo. The seat backrests have quilted seat centres and backrests in leather.
The new adaptive Sports seats Plus (18-way) are standard in the 911
The optionally available full bucket seats are made completely of carbon-fibre reinforced plastic (CFRP) with a carbon-weave finish. This provides especially good lateral support at minimal weight. The fore/aft adjustment is manual, the height adjustment is electric. The seat is covered in black leather - the seat centres in perforated Race-Tex. Perfect finishing: the embossed

LED main headlights with matrix beam including
The main headlight with matrix beam strategically deactivates specific segments of the permanent main-beam cone. 84 individually controlled LEDs can be adjusted to the situation by switching off or dimming accordingly. Vehicles in front of you or on the opposite side of the road are dimmed, while the areas in between and next to them are still fully illuminated.
Using sensors in the front wheel housing, the system detects swirled-up water spray, thereby assessing wet road surfaces. If it detects a noticeably wet road surface, the response behaviour of PSM and PTM is prepared accordingly. The system informs the driver of detected wetness and recommends that they switch manually to Wet mode. If the driver activates this, PSM, PTM, aerodynamics, PTV Plus and the responsiveness of the drivetrain are adjusted.
¹The ‘Wet’ driving programme is not a substitute for adopting appropriate driving in different road and weather conditions, and is, at the most, an aid for the driver.
The standard Collision and Brake Assist can reduce the risk of collisions with vehicles, pedestrians and cyclists within the limits of the system. In the first stage, the system uses the front camera to alert the driver both audibly and visually when it detects vehicles, pedestrians or cyclists in the collision area.
Where system limitations allow, the system regulates the speed of your 911
Lane Keeping Assist uses a camera to detect the divider line markings where system limitations allow. The system supports the driver with steering assistance when the vehicle approaches a detected divider line marking and threatens to leave the lane, thus helping to keep the car on track. Integrated traffic sign recognition uses camera images and navigation data to detect speed limits, ‘no overtaking’ zones and indirect information, such as boundary signs, and displays these in the instrument cluster.

Night Vision Assist provides you with information when driving at night, even beyond the range of the headlights. An infrared camera detects pedestrians or large wildlife before they are illuminated. A thermal image in the instrument cluster warns you: the detected person or animal is highlighted in yellow – or in red and accompanied by an audible signal if within the critical range in front of the vehicle. At the same time, the stopping distance control is activated.
The standard reversing camera facilitates precise reverse parking and manoeuvring. Help is provided in the form of the camera image and dynamic guidelines on the PCM screen, which illustrate the predicted course of the vehicle given the current position of the steering wheel.
Surround View supplements the reversing camera with three more high-resolution cameras in the front apron and exterior mirror lower trims. Based on the information supplied by all four cameras, the system generates a virtual bird’s eye view of the car and displays this on the PCM screen. It is also possible to switch between various camera views to improve visibility, e.g. at narrow exits.
