The main headlights of all 911 models are fitted with cutting edge LED technology. For fast responsiveness and powerful illumination. Unmistakably Porsche: the four-point daytime running lights with dipped beam. A common feature of all 911 models is the light strip with its three-dimensional taillights. State-of-the-art LED technology is used for all functions here too. Also worth a mention: the third brake light in the centre.
LED main headlights including Porsche Dynamic Light System Plus (PDLS Plus)
The LED main headlights including Porsche Dynamic Light System Plus (PDLS Plus) are fitted with dynamic range control, dynamic cornering lights, speed-sensitive headlight range control and Main Beam Assistant. For enhanced near-field, lateral and far-field illumination and added safety.
LED main headlights with matrix beam including Porsche Dynamic Light System Plus (PDLS Plus)
Even greater foresight is achieved with LED main headlights featuring matrix beam technology and Main Beam Assistant. 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 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. To optimise target fixation, not only are the lights selectively dimmed to fade out oncoming vehicles, the area to the right of the light void is lit more brightly for better guidance of the driver's visual attention. Segment-specific dimming of highly reflective traffic signs also acts to avoid dazzling the driver. LED main headlights with matrix beam including Porsche Dynamic Light System Plus (PDLS Plus) also come with electronic cornering lights that optimally illuminate bends by switching individual LEDs on and off.
A rare luxury these days: having the time to concentrate exclusively on what's directly in front of you. Such as the road. Or the next corner. Our assistance systems enable you to remain truly in the moment.
Porsche WET mode*
The 911 has a special ‘WET’ mode; an innovative system that aids drivers when driving in the wet.
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.
Collision and Brake Assist
The standard Collision and Brake Assist can reduce the risk of collisions with vehicles 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 cars, pedestrians or cyclists in the collision area.
In the second stage, it also applies brake pressure, if the car is approaching vehicles, pedestrians or cyclists too quickly. If necessary, the driver can also apply the brakes to effect an emergency stop. If the driver does not react, automatic emergency braking is initiated to reduce or completely avoid the consequences of a collision.
Lane Keeping Assist including traffic sign recognition
Lane Keeping Assist is a camera-based system for automatic detection of divider line markings on the road. The system eases the burden on the driver by providing steering assistance, helping to keep the vehicle in lane.
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. The advantage: compared with information stored in the navigation database is that even temporary speed restrictions can be detected.
Another feature of traffic sign recognition: based on navigation system data and camera recognition of cornering road signs, the system displays an arrowed direction warning on the instrument cluster, alerting you to tight corners. Long before you reach them. The benefit you gain? Improved comfort. And less strain, on longer overland journeys, for example.
Lane Change Assist with Turn Assist
Lane Change Assist uses radar-based technology to monitor the area behind your 911 and blind spots. As you move to change lane, the system issues a visual warning signal in the exterior mirrors whenever a vehicle approaches your vehicle from behind or enters one of your blind spots. For greater comfort and safety, especially on the motorway.
Turn Assist provides support during low-speed turns. When turning at an intersection at low speed, Turn Assist issues a visual warning if it detects objects in your blind spot, within the limits of the system.
Night Vision Assist
Night Vision Assist provides the driver 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 by the headlights. A thermal image in the instrument cluster warns the driver: 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. In combination with LED main headlights with matrix beam including Porsche Dynamic Light System Plus (PDLS Plus), the marker light function briefly flashes the headlight at the pedestrian on the kerbside or in the carriageway three times to alert the driver's attention.
ParkAssist front and rear
The standard ParkAssist audibly alerts the driver to the presence of obstacles both in front of and behind the vehicle. The audible alert is supplemented by a visual warning in the central display screen, which shows a schematic representation of the vehicle.
The 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.
ParkAssist with Surround View
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.
