In an era of intensifying debate about global climate change and CO2 emissions, every automotive manufacturer is asking what it has to offer right now. Our answer? Excellent performance together with excellent efficiency.
Vehicles manufactured by Porsche demonstrate that even high-performance sports cars can achieve relatively moderate fuel consumption and exhaust emission values in their respective category.
This is accomplished, on the one hand, through the efficient use of fuel by means of efficiency-enhancing technologies such as direct fuel injection (DFI).
On the other hand, catalytic converters with stereo Lambda control circuits provide efficient emission control.
Intelligent lightweight construction has been integral to the Porsche identity since the very beginning. Today, it is achieved by the purposeful use of lightweight polyurethane, aluminium and magnesium. All materials selected are easily recyclable. Recycled plastics are used where they meet our exacting technical requirements.
All Porsche models – including the 911 GT3 – 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 because it is derived from plants that absorb CO2 from the atmosphere.
