Features

Identity 911

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...

Engineering 911

The engines, as you would expect, are characterised by six horizontally opposed cylinders. The 3.4-litre engine in the 911 Carrera models produces 257 kW (350 hp); in the 911 Carrera S models, the 3...

Exterior design

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...

Interior design

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,...

Character

Open-top driving is integral to Porsche history. It began back in 1948 with the No. 1. The convertible variant of the first 356 became a legend, as did its descendent, the Porsche 550 Spyder. In 1982...

Engines

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...

Efficiency-enhancing measures

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...

Coasting

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...

7-speed manual gearbox

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...

Porsche Doppelkupplung (PDK)

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...

Exhaust system

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...

Air intake system

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...

Direct fuel injection (DFI)

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...

VarioCam Plus System

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,...

Integrated dry-sump lubrication

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...

Steering

Electromechanical power steering

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...

Sport Chrono Package

SPORT button

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...

Dynamic engine mounts

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...

Porsche Torque Vectoring Plus (PTV Plus)

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...

Porsche Active Suspension Management (PASM)

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...

Porsche Dynamic Chassis Control (PDCC)

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...

Wheels + TPM

Wheels

The 911 Carrera models are equipped with 19-inch Carrera wheels as standard. These are lightweight alloys featuring a classic sporty design. Tyre sizes are 235/40 ZR 19 and 285/35 ZR 19 at the...

Front and rear axles

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...

Brakes

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...

Porsche Ceramic Composite Brake (PCCB)

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....

Lights

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...

Airbags

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...

Engineered design

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...

Anti-theft protection

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...

Interior

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...

Steering wheels

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...

Instruments

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...

Seats

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...

Additional Features

Climate control

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...

Transport

Luggage compartment

The luggage compartment volume in the 911 models is 145 litres – 125 litres in the 911 Carrera all-wheel-drive models. The luggage compartment is fully trimmed in scratch-resistant...

BOSE® Surround Sound System

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...

Mobile phone / Bluetooth® connection

Telephone module

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...

Porsche 911 Carrera S Cabriolet - Interactive Microsite

Porsche Identity.

The 911. Our identity. A truly distinctive design. Technology that was born on the race track. Emotional impact that has been standard since 1963. Yet, is that enough to move forward? Don’t we need to break the stranglehold of tradition once in a while before it one day brings us to a complete standstill? We believe that the answer is ‘yes’, which is why no fewer than 90% of the components of the 911 are either new or have been fundamentally revised. This is our approach to the preservation of tradition. And it is precisely how we do justice to the 911 legend.
