November 2, 2013. A meeting of two — the world premiиre of the 918 super sports car in the anniversary of the Porsche 911

The Porsche 918 Spyder is its dйbut at this year’s Motor Show (IAA) in The super sports car with hybrid drive marks the of a new era. Never before has a sports car designed for everyday use such an impressive dynamic combined with the fuel of a compact car.

In setting technological benchmark, the Porsche 918 is taking on a pioneering role to that of the 911 when it was unveiled at the IAA years ago. To mark the of the 911, Porsche is presenting a limited edition ‘911 50 model. The anniversary model is on the current 911 Carrera S, combining the elements of the 911 with state-of-the-art

Porsche is completing its sports car with the new ‘Type 991’ 911 which is being presented to the for the first time at the major show in Frankfurt. In addition, the new generation Panamera is demonstrating the of the Porsche range today. As the plug-in hybrid in the luxury the pioneering Panamera S E-Hybrid is that Porsche is leading the with its expertise in the development of drive concepts for sports

Porsche genetic blueprint for the The 918 Spyder with high-performance

The 918 Spyder is the continuation of the traditional DNA in a ground-breaking sports car concept. from the start to be a high-performance the 918 Spyder boasts an unprecedented of performance (offering the 887 hp output of a sports car) and the virtually emission-free travel of an electric The vehicle is able to accelerate 0 to 62 mph in 2.8 seconds and offers an average fuel consumption of between 94 mpg and 85

The 918 Spyder also allows a engine to be combined with an motor-based drive to generate new that further optimise the performance.

A sportscar icon its anniversary: 50 years of the 911

Since its at the IAA in September 1963, the 911 has been by its many devoted fans the world as the quintessential sports the benchmark for all others. This rear-engined, flat-six cylinder is celebrating its 50th anniversary in and Porsche is marking the occasion a special edition model on the current 911 Carrera S – only are available.

In addition to a comprehensive equipment package and various cues hinting at the original, very special 911 model is the vehicle to also combine the body of the all-wheel drive 4 models with the rear-wheel configuration of the original 911; also featured a charismatic, flat-six engine driving the wheels.

Few other cars in the can look back on such a and continuing tradition as the Porsche Over the decades, the model has continued to evolve. The result of 50 year process is a sports car can claim to be about as close to as possible without having any of its original charm.

There now been seven generations of iconic sports car, one writing its own success story. 1963, over 820,000 911s have been at the Stuttgart-Zuffenhausen factory. Few other cars in the world have such excitement among car and no other sports car has claimed as race victories, proving and again that every is a race car.

Now in its seventh the iconic 911 sports car is continuing its into the future.

The new 911 Turbo: driving dynamics, minimum consumption

The first 911 Turbo was showcased at the IAA in 1973, ten years the original 911 made its dйbut. For the anniversary of the model, Porsche is the new generation ‘Type 991’ 911 and Turbo S, which sit at the pinnacle of and dynamic performance in the 911 range. like the new all-wheel drive with active rear steering, adaptive aerodynamics, headlights and the 560 hp, flat-six engine twin turbocharging underscore the of the new 911 Turbo models as a technological both for race cars and intended for everyday use.

The re-designed lightweight chassis 100 mm longer wheelbase and larger diameter wheels also an important part to play. The performance has also been via the active Porsche Dynamic Control (PDCC) anti-roll which is making its first in the 911 Turbo models. This is part of the standard equipment for the 911 S, alongside the Sport Chrono with dynamic engine and Porsche Ceramic Composite (PCCB), all of which are also as options on the 911 Turbo. Combined, dynamic attributes reduce the lap of the new 911 Turbo S around the Nьrburgring-Nordschleife to 7 min 27

At the same time, both coupes are more efficient an New European Driving Cycle fuel consumption of 29.1 which is 15 per cent lower before.

Porsche 918 Spyder: A combination of performance and efficiency

The 918 embodies the essence of the Porsche combining pedigree motor technology with excellent suitability, and maximum performance minimum consumption. The dйbut of the 918 at the IAA 2013 marks the start of a new in the future of the hybrid drive. And the pioneers are not the only ones who are by this flagship project, as the 918 demonstrates the potential of the hybrid to a degree never seen achieving a parallel improvement in fuel efficiency and performance compromising on either.

This is the that has made the Porsche 911 the successful sports car in the world for the 50 years.

In short, the 918 Spyder the genetic blueprint for the Porsche of the future. The 918 Spyder has been influenced by its affiliations with A number of the developments on the Porsche race car for the 24 Hours of Le Mans were used in the 918 Spyder – and versa.

The structural concept, on a rolling chassis (i.e. a without bodywork), is standard for race cars. The design of the V8 is based on that of the Le Mans 2 (LMP2) race car, the RS and the supporting monocoque structures and carriers are made from fibre reinforced plastic More importantly, however, the 918 is considerably more fuel than any of its competitors. In fact, plug-in hybrid combines the of a race car with an output of 880 hp with an estimated NEDC consumption of just three per 100 km, which is lower than the of today’s compact cars.

can therefore enjoy maximum pleasure and minimum fuel

Hybrid drive enhances performance

The core message the 918 Spyder is that the Porsche drive offers uncompromising performance. The unique all-wheel arrangement with a combined engine and electric motor system on the rear axle, and a electric motor on the front make this possible. is based on the Porsche motorsport work for the successful 911 GT3 R Hybrid car. The additional, individually front wheel drive new driving strategies to be used for high, yet safe, speeds through corners.

Furthermore, the advanced ‘boost’ manages the energy of the electric so intelligently that the unrestricted power of the 918 Spyder can be accessed by fully depressing the accelerator for every burst of speed at acceleration. In short, the 918 Spyder any driver to experience the potential of its longitudinal and lateral dynamics.

comfortable to race-ready: Five for three motors

The centrepiece of the 918 is the distribution of propulsive power three power units, all of are integrated and controlled via an intelligent system. To benefit as much as from the coverage offered by the systems, the Porsche engineers at the Weissach research and development have defined a total of operating modes, which can be via a map switch in the steering wheel, like in race cars. the pre-selected mode, the 918 Spyder the most suitable operating and strategy without any further from drivers, thus them to concentrate fully on the

Quiet and elegant: ‘E-Power’

the vehicle is started up, ‘E-Power’ is selected as the default operating provided that the battery is charged. Depending on load, the 918 can cover between 10 and 20 miles on electric power. Even in electric mode, the 918 Spyder from 0 – 62 mph in under seven and can reach speeds of up to 93 mph.

In mode, the combustion engine is only when needed. If the charging condition drops a set minimum level, the vehicle switches to hybrid mode.

and comfortable: ‘Hybrid’

In ‘Hybrid’ the electric motors and combustion work alternately, focusing on maximum efficiency and minimum consumption. The power output of the drive components is modified in with the current driving and the required performance level. mode is typically used for driving.

Sporty and dynamic: Hybrid’

If more dynamic is required, the power units in the 918 switch over to ‘Sport mode. The combustion engine now continuously, representing the main force. The electric motors are to support acceleration through the boost function, or at points the operating point of the combustion can be optimised for greater efficiency.

mode focuses on performance and a driving experience at top speeds.

For laps: ‘Race Hybrid’

Hybrid’ is the mode for maximum combined with an especially driving experience. The combustion is chiefly used under load, and charges the battery the driver does not require power. In this mode, the motors also provide support in the form of boosting. The programme of the Porsche Doppelkupplung is also designed for even driving.

The electric motors are up to the maximum power output to deliver the best possible for the race track. The battery condition is not kept constant and fluctuates over the entire range. In contrast to ‘Sport mode, the electric motors run at maximum power output for a short period for enhanced performance. This increased is balanced out by the fact that the engine charges the battery intensively.

The electric power is thus always available to the even for several very laps.

For pole position: Lap’

The ‘Hot Lap’ in the centre of the map switch releases the reserves of the 918 Spyder and can only be in ‘Race Hybrid’ mode. to a motor sports qualification ‘Race Hybrid’ pushes the battery to its maximum power limits for a few fast laps. mode uses all of the available in the battery.

A world first: A that harnesses the power of separate power units

The drive source is the 4.6-litre, engine with an output of up to 608 hp. on the power unit of the successful RS endurance race car, the delivers revs of up to 9,150 rpm and a output per litre of approximately 132 – 26 hp/litre more than of the Carrera GT, making this the specific power of any naturally Porsche engine. And it is not just the of the 918 Spyder engine that up an emotive response: The sound of vehicle is just as impressive, and can be attributed to the ‘top pipes’ – tailpipes that terminate above the engine in the upper of the rear engine cover.

No series production vehicle this solution.

In parallel in the Hybrid module

The V8 engine is to the hybrid module as the 918 Spyder is as a parallel hybrid like current hybrid models. The module essentially comprises a 115 kW motor and a de-coupler that as the connection with the combustion Because of its parallel hybrid the 918 Spyder can be powered at the rear either individually by the combustion or the electric motor, or via both together. As is typical for a Porsche sports car, the power assembly in the 918 Spyder has been in front of the rear axle, and it not have a direct mechanical to the front axle.

Independent all-wheel drive: axle with electric

There is another independent motor that generates 95 kW of power at the front axle. The electric drive unit the wheels at a fixed gear A de-coupler removes drive the electric motor at high to prevent the motor from

The drive torque is independently for each axle, creating a responsive all-wheel drive with significant potential in of traction and dynamic performance.

battery with plug-in system

The electric energy for the motors is stored by a liquid-cooled battery comprising 312 individual with an energy content of seven kilowatt hours. The in the 918 Spyder has a performance-oriented design in of both power charging and enabling it to meet the performance of the electric motor. The power and operating life of the lithium-ion battery depend on several including thermal conditions. is why the battery of the 918 Spyder is liquid by a dedicated cooling circuit.

The warranty period for the traction is seven years.

Porsche has a new system with a plug-in interface and improved recuperation for charging the battery. For example, on the 230 Volt mains supply, the battery can be charged within hours by connecting the Porsche Charger (AC) provided in the of delivery to a ten-ampere fused socket. The Porsche Speed Station (DC) is also as an option, and will fully the high-voltage battery in just 25 minutes.

Chassis with car genes and rear-axle steering

The suspension of the Porsche 918 Spyder was by motor sport design, and is by additional systems such as the Active Suspension Management adaptive damper system and steering, which provides adjustment of each rear This adjustment is speed-sensitive, steering angles of up to three in each direction. The rear can therefore be steered in the same, or direction to the front wheels.

At low the system steers the rear in the opposite direction to the front which has the effect of shortening the This makes cornering more direct, faster and precise, and reduces the turning At higher speeds, the system the rear wheels in the same as the front wheels, which has the of lengthening the wheelbase.

This significantly increases end stability when changing quickly, resulting in exceptionally and stable handling.

The tyres of the A special challenge

On the one hand, the needed to have optimum and razor-sharp handling on all road On the other, they needed to be on the race track and have as low a resistance as possible. As a result, the of the Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 for the Porsche 918 Spyder were with a seemingly insurmountable of objectives.

However, working with Porsche engineers, the experts from Michelin able to overcome this in impressive fashion, with the that the 918 Spyder is rolling out on specially-tuned Michelin Pilot Cup 2 tyres.

A total of 550 prototype were produced and tested the course of the testing period. hundred pre-production prototypes and 200 test specimens were produced before Porsche the final approval for the Michelin Sport Cup 2 tyres in size ZR 20 for the front axle and 325/30 ZR 21 for the axle. The tyres developed for the Porsche 918 are also raising the in the ultra-sports tyre segment it comes to driving on wet surfaces and in of aquaplaning safety.

The 918 sees exclusive partnership between and Porsche in the development of special for super sports cars its second phase. This started more than ten ago with the Carrera GT.

The ‘Weissach’ for an even better performance

For looking for an even better from the 918 Spyder, Porsche offers the ‘Weissach’ package. sports cars modified this package are also in special colours and designs by legendary Porsche race making them instantly The emphasis on performance is not just

Super lightweight magnesium reduce unsprung weight, the gross weight by around 35 kg. lightweight features are decisive it comes to further enhancing the performance of the vehicle. Other to motorsport include six-point seat belts for the driver and passenger, an optional film instead of a paint finish, additional aerodynamic add-on in visible carbon fibre.

Active Aerodynamic (PAA) for driving modes

Porsche Aerodynamic (PAA) is a system of aerodynamic elements that a unique and variable aerodynamic The system works in three switching automatically between efficiency and maximum downforce, and in harmony with the operating of the hybrid drive. In ‘Race’ the retractable rear wing is set to a angle to generate high at the rear axle.

The spoiler, is positioned between the two wing at the trailing edge of the airflow, extends. Two adjustable air flaps are in the underbody in front of the front directing some of the air into the channels of the underbody structure to produce a ‘ground effect’ at the axle.

In ‘Sport’ mode, the control system reduces the angle of the rear wing enabling a higher top speed. The remains extended but the aerodynamic in the underbody close, which reduces aerodynamic drag and the potential vehicle speed. In the system focuses solely on low drag; the rear wing and are retracted and the underbody flaps are

Adjustable air intakes under the headlights round off the adaptive system. When the vehicle is and in ‘Race’ or ‘Sport’ mode, the are opened to enable maximum In ‘E-Power’ and ‘Hybrid’ mode, the air close as soon as the vehicle is off in order to keep aerodynamic to a minimum.

They are not opened until the vehicle reaches of approximately 80 mph or when cooling are higher.

Porsche redefined: A new super car for a new decade

The 918 Spyder continues a tradition of super sports at Porsche. Many of these have set technological benchmarks and become the ultimate sports of their decades: the Carrera the first Porsche 911 Turbo, the the 911 GT1 and the Carrera GT. More so than any of its the 918 Spyder is providing the key momentum for technologies for future vehicle

The 918 Spyder features all the components reflect the Porsche DNA, yet in a that is more powerful ever before.

Porsche 50 years of the 911 with a special

Like no other sports the Porsche 911 has been able to apparent contradictions, such as versus innovation, or exclusivity a high level of social

To mark the 50th anniversary of the Porsche is presenting a very model at the International Motor (IAA) in Frankfurt. Like the 911, the ‘911 50 Years’ is a coupй with a flat-six engine and rear wheel but its efficient performance, active chassis and exclusive special are very much state of the The 911 anniversary model features the wide rear end, is typically reserved for the all-wheel Carrera 4 models.

The ’50 Years edition is limited to 1,963 – the same number as the year in the 911 made its dйbut.

The original 911 was presented to the public at the IAA in Frankfurt in This iconic sports car has been revered by automotive around the world, and is still considered the benchmark for other cars. Following its dйbut, the 911 has to evolve, but the iconic sports car has none of its original unique The result of this 50-year – which has also included race victories – is a sports car truly epitomises the authenticity of the brand.

The total NEDC fuel amounts to 29.7 mpg (32.5 mpg PDK), which corresponds to 224 CO2 (205 with PDK).

50 of the Porsche 911: Seven – seven legends

For five the 911 has been the centrepiece of the Porsche Few other cars can look on such a long and continuing Since its very first as the ‘Type 901’ at the International Show (IAA) in September this iconic sports car has revered by car enthusiasts around the and is still frequently considered the for all other sports cars.

The 911 is the central point of reference for all Porsche model lines. the Cayenne to the Panamera, every model is designed to assert its of being the sportiest vehicle in its segment, and every one reflects part of the fundamental idea the 911 to enable it to do this.

More 820,000 Porsche 911s been built to date, it one of the most successful sports in the world. For each of its seven the Porsche engineers in Zuffenhausen and have reinvented the 911, their innovative approach every version. Like no vehicle, the 911 has been able to apparent contradictions such as versus everyday suitability, versus innovation, exclusivity social acceptance, and design functionality.

It is no wonder that generation has written its own personal story. Ferry Porsche described the car’s unique when he said: “The 911 is the car you could drive from an safari to the Le Mans race and then to the theatre and through the of New York.”

In addition to its classic yet design, the Porsche 911 has always distinguished by its pioneering technology. of the ideas and technologies that their dйbut in the Porsche 911 conceived on the race track. all, the 911 has always been for a high performance level, and was its most important testing

From the very beginning, the 911 has at home on race tracks all the world, earning a reputation as a and dependable winner. In fact, a two thirds of Porsche’s 30,000 victories to date have notched up by the 911.

Porsche a host of anniversary celebrations for the 911

The anniversary of the 911 has always been the focus for Porsche in 2013. A variety of anniversary events are held, starting with the Classics motor show in The anniversary year is also with a special exhibition at the Museum in Stuttgart.

The sports car is also sending an original, 911 from model year on a world tour. Over the of the year, this vintage 911 visit five continents it will be showcased at various including Pebble Beach in Shanghai, the Goodwood Festival of Paris and Melbourne in Australia. As an for the Porsche brand, the 911 will be in at numerous international events, fairs, historical rallies and sport events through the year.

Fans and potential can follow the vehicle’s progress at

The Porsche Museum is celebrating 50 of the Porsche 911 with an extensive exhibition. From 4 June –29 Porsche will be looking on the history and development of the 911. The Museum publishing house, Porsche-Museum, is also bringing out a book to mark the anniversary, ‘911×911’.

The 911 generations

The original 911 – the birth of a legend

As the successor to the 356, the 911 won the hearts of sportscar from the outset. The prototype was unveiled at the Frankfurt International Show (IAA) in 1963 as the 901, before being as the 911 for its market launch in 1964.

The air-cooled flat-six engine an output of 130 hp, giving it an impressive top of 210 km/h. For those who wanted to things a little slower, the Porsche 912 was also available 1965 onwards. In 1966, presented the 160 hp 911 S, which was the first to feature forged alloy from Fuchs. The 911 Targa, its distinctive stainless steel bar, made its dйbut in 1966 as the world’s first safety cabriolet.

The semi-automatic four-speed transmission joined the in 1967. With the 911 T, E and S variants, became the first German to comply with the strict emission control regulations by the US Environmental Protection Agency. The 911 became more and more as displacement increased, initially to 2.2 (1969) and later to 2.4 litres The 911 Carrera RS 2.7 of 1972 with a 210 hp and weighing less than kg remains the ultimate dream car to day.

Its characteristic ducktail was the world’s first rear for a series production vehicle.

(1973) – the second generation

Ten after its premiиre, the engineers at gave the 911 its first thorough The G-Series model was produced 1973 to 1989, longer any other 911 generation. It featured bellows bumpers – an innovation to meet the latest crash standards in the United States.

Occupant protection was further by the three-point safety belts and head restraints provided as The IAA in Frankfurt was also the backdrop for important milestone in the history of the 911 the 1973 launch of the first 911 Turbo with its 3.0-litre, 260 hp and enormous rear spoiler. to its unique blend of luxury and the Turbo became synonymous the Porsche brand. The next leap came in 1977 in the of the 911 Turbo 3.3 with a charge-air

With an output of 300 hp, this was the best in its class. In 1983, the aspirated 911 Carrera superseded the SC; the 231 hp engine made this a popular collectors’ item. in 1982, fresh air enthusiasts also order the 911 as a cabriolet.

The 911 Speedster, launched in 1989, saw the of the Porsche legend.

‘Type (1988) – reinventing a classic

when automotive experts predicting the end of an era, Porsche the 911 Carrera 4 (‘Type 964’) in After fifteen years of up to 85% of the 911 platform had been completed allowing Porsche to offer a and sustainable vehicle concept. The 3.6-litre flat engine now an output of 250 hp.

Externally, the 964 differed its predecessors predominantly as a result of its polyurethane bumpers and electric rear spoiler, but the technology inside the vehicle was very The new model was designed to captivate not only with its sporty but also with an enhanced of comfort. The anti-lock brake (ABS), Tiptronic gearbox, steering and airbags were all for the benefit of drivers.

The 911 also on a completely new chassis with wishbones and coil springs of the established torsion-bar suspension. The new 911 was or less revolutionary, as the Carrera 4 was offered with all-wheel right from the start. In to the Carrera Coupй, Cabriolet and variants, customers could order the 964 Turbo from onwards.

Initially powered by the 3.3-litre flat engine, in the Turbo was upgraded to a 360 hp, 3.6-litre unit. Today, the 911 Carrera RS, 911 S, and the 911 Carrera 2 Speedster are in particularly demand by collectors.

‘Type (1993) – the last air-cooled

This 911 model, referred to as the ‘Type 993’, remains the one love of many Porsche Its aesthetic design has a lot to do with its The integrated bumpers emphasise the elegance of its styling. The front is lower than on the earlier made possible by a switch round to poly-ellipsoidal headlights. The 993 gained a reputation for its exceptional and reliability.

It was also agile as it was the 911 with the newly designed chassis. The Turbo version was the model to feature a bi-turbo which, in 1995, made it the series production automotive in the world. The hollow-spoke aluminium never seen before on any vehicle, were yet another of the all-wheel drive Turbo The Porsche 911 GT2 was aimed at sports car with a need for speed.

An glass roof that under the rear window was one of the of the 911 Targa.

However, the real that true Porsche still cherish the 993 is the fact this model, produced 1993 to 1998, was the last 911 an air-cooled flat engine.

996’ (1997) – the water-cooled

The ‘Type 996’, which off the assembly line from to 2005, represented a major point in the history of the 911. It all the character of its classic heritage, but was an new vehicle. This fully generation was the first to be powered by a flat-six engine.

With its technology, the 996 achieved an output of 300 hp and set new for reducing emissions, noise and consumption.

The exterior design the classic silhouette of the 911, but a lower aerodynamic drag value of 0.30 Cd. The contours of the 996 also a result of component with the Porsche Boxster. Its eye-catching exterior feature was the with integrated direction – these were seen as controversial at first, but were copied by many other

The interior offered drivers entirely new cockpit concept, and comfort was also beginning to a greater role alongside the sporty characteristics. In connection the 996, Porsche launched an product campaign with a series of new variants. The 911 GT3 became one of the of the model range in 1999, the tradition of the Carrera RS alive.

The 911 the first vehicle to be equipped PCCB ceramic composite as standard, and an extreme sporting arrived in the autumn of 2000.

997’ (2004) – classic and combined

Porsche had come a way by July 2004 when the unveiled a new 911 generation in the form of the 911 and 911 Carrera S models, referred to as the ‘Type 997’ line. The oval headlights with lights in the front end were a reflection of the traditional 911 design, but the of the 997 impressed as much as its design. The flat-six engine of the Carrera an output of 325 hp, while the new 3.8-litre in the Carrera S generated an even impressive 355 hp. The chassis had also considerably revised and came Porsche Active Suspension (PASM) as standard in the Carrera S.

In Porsche introduced a new 911 Turbo, the series-production vehicle with a engine to feature a turbocharger variable turbine geometry. improvements in autumn 2008 the 997 even more efficient to its direct fuel injection and double-clutch transmission.

Never had the 911 series made such allowances to suit drivers’ preferences – the Carrera, Targa, rear or all-wheel drive, GTS, limited edition and GT3 and GT3 RS road versions of racing amounted to some 24 different variants.

‘Type 991’ – the best 911 of all time

This car, known internally as the 991’, represents the greatest leap in the evolution of the 911. the benchmark in its class for several the new ‘Type 911’ generation the bar once again for performance and A completely new chassis with a wheelbase, wider track, tyres and an ergonomically optimized all provide an even sportier yet comfortable driving experience. the 911 is the epitome of Porsche Intelligent concept, which combines lower fuel consumption an even higher performance

This is achieved via the smaller displacement in the Carrera basic (which still delivers 5 hp than the 997/II), and also the steel/aluminium construction, which reduces weight.

Other include Porsche Dynamic Control (PDCC), and the world’s seven-speed manual transmission. The of the 991 has likewise received its fair of praise. With its distinctive, silhouette, athletic contours and designed details, the seventh of the Porsche 911 Carrera remains a 911 while once again in redefining the benchmarks of automotive

And this is just one more why this is the best 911 of all time – the next generation, of course.

The new Porsche 911 Turbo and 911 Turbo S the benchmark for performance and efficiency

The new of the Porsche 911 Turbo and Turbo S represent the pinnacle of the 911 model in terms of both technology and performance, and make their premiиre at the IAA at Frankfurt. To mark the anniversary of the first Turbo the Porsche 911 Turbo is once pushing the boundaries of dynamic efficiency and everyday usability.

The new systems in the vehicle are playing a key Active rear axle enhances agility on the road and on the track, while the Porsche Aerodynamics (PAA) system performance, efficiency and everyday A new all-wheel drive system ensures an even faster, precise power distribution of the bi-turbo engines, which outputs of up to 520 hp and 560 hp in the respective models. The 30 hp in engine performance has been in conjunction with a 15% reduction in consumption in comparison to the previous

Highly effective efficiency mean that combined economy for both versions has to 29.1 mpg.

Dynamic has also been heightened by the Porsche Dynamic Chassis (PDCC) anti-roll system, Ceramic Composite Brakes dynamic engine mountings, diameter wheels and full-LED all of which are standard on the Turbo S.

than ever before, new top-of-the-range models also a clear visual statement their performance. The characteristic, flared rear wings of the new 911 generation are 28 mm wider than of the 911 Carrera 4 models – a virtually surface of just over a width extends out from the to the outer edge of the vehicle.

spontaneous, faster and more

The entire drivetrain of the 911 Turbo is an example of the defining features of the new car. The turbocharged 3.8-litre engine with direct injection generates an output of 520 hp in the 911 and 560 hp in the S model. Compared to previous the output of the 911 Turbo has been by 20 hp and its torque increased by ten Newton to 660 Nm.

In the S model, the power level has increased by 30 hp, and the torque by ten Newton to 710 Nm. Porsche continues to be the only to offer twin turbochargers variable turbine geometry in a petrol engine. This provides a very consistent output over the entire range.

Power is transmitted via the seven-speed Porsche Doppelkupplung which now includes the stop-start with engine shut-off as as the vehicle starts free-wheeling or to a stop. Together with a new management system for the turbo fuel efficiency technologies reduced the NEDC fuel by as much as 15% to 29.1 mpg for both

Overboost: A boost of power at the of a button

The new sports cars even better in a sprint the Sport Chrono package, is standard on the 911 Turbo S (optional for the 911 One of the features offered by this is increased torque. The ‘overboost’ which is being introduced for the time in the 911 Turbo S, increases the boost pressure by around bar for up to 20 seconds in the mid-speed range the ‘SPORT’ or ‘SPORT Plus’ is pressed, increasing the maximum to 750 Nm.

Porsche Doppelkupplung (PDK) virtual intermediate gears

The gains and reduced fuel achieved with the new top-of-the 911 models are due to the enhancement of the Porsche (PDK), which features transmission control for a sports experience along with other new functions. For example, engineers supplemented the seven gears by adding ‘virtual’ gears to further improve economy and comfort. These are used to reduce engine when driving at an even, pace when the next up would reduce the engine to below the specified lower

To do this, the transmission control engages the adjacent gear and controls the two clutches for a defined of slip when transferring the force.

New all-wheel drive with electro-hydraulic control

For faster and more precise distribution to the two axles, Porsche has a new all-wheel drive system with an electro-hydraulic control for the multi-plate clutch. This principle enables faster and precise control of the clutch The result is more dynamic and precise control of the propulsion to the front axle combined improved traction and dynamic

Rear axle steering agility and stability simultaneously

The rear axle steering consists of two electromechanical actuators, are used on the left and right of the axle instead of the conventional steering units. Using actuators, the steering angle of the wheels can be varied according to the speed. This arrangement can be to achieve one of two different effects, on which direction the two axles are

For instance, when the front and wheels are steered in opposite the sports car drives like a with a significantly shorter – significantly shorter again the previous model. The system this function at speeds of 31 mph. The other effect is when the front and rear are steered in the same direction: The wheelbase of the sports car is lengthened, the driver better stability changing lanes and therefore enhanced driving stability especially at high speeds.

axles are steered in the same is when the vehicle reaches a of 50 mph.

Adaptive aerodynamics: The art of tackling air resistance

The new Porsche 911 is the first sports car in the world to adaptive aero dynamics, it to revolutionise the interaction between usability, efficiency and also and set new benchmarks in each of these areas. The unique combination of the multi-stage front spoiler and a wing with height and adjustment means that the of the 911 Turbo can be adapted to the current and the driver’s preferences at the touch of a and as often as required.

The Porsche Aerodynamics (PAA) system three basic modes which to control the front and rear wing. Both are retracted when the vehicle is up. When the front spoiler is back, it provides a significantly approach angle than the model. ‘Speed’ mode is at 75 mph.

The two outer segments of the front spoiler extend to more air around the body and aerodynamic lift at the front At the same time, the rear is extended upwards by 25 mm.

‘Performance’ offers an entirely new dimension of for the top 911 model, demonstrated in particular by the forces at work. At 186 mph the sports car 132 kg of downforce in Performance mode. means that the maximum lateral acceleration increases by 10% at speed – just as a result of the

To generate these forces, the section of the front spoiler is extended.

Simultaneously, the rear is extended again to a height of 75 mm and is forwards by seven degrees.

pleasure in exclusive surroundings

The of both 911 Turbo models has completely redesigned and mirrors of the current Carrera range. The new 911 models also promise an richer sound experience. The new Symposer system, which is as standard, transmits the actual air sounds of the turbo engine to the via a diaphragm for an especially emotive experience.

The purely mechanical system is when the ‘SPORT’ button is

The driver and front passenger in the 911 sit on sport seats with electric 14-way adjustment, the S model features the Adaptive Seat Plus with adjustment as standard. Both include the memory package and steering column adjustment. The package stores a large of seat, steering column and settings.

In addition to the extensive of standard equipment available for the new 911 the new 911 Turbo S features a two-tone interior in Black and Carrera which is offered as standard for this model.

Instrument with enhanced displays

models feature a SportDesign wheel with aluminium paddles. The instrument cluster directly in front of the driver from that of the 911 Carrera in that the dials are all black aluminium-coloured outer rings. The features a silver-coloured decorative and illuminated ‘turbo’ or ‘turbo S’ The 4.6-inch, high-resolution colour offers extensive display including boost pressure and data. The new ‘Performance’ display the engine torque currently as a moving dot on the screen; this depends on the engine speed and

In addition, the main beam for the LED main headlights (standard for the 911 S, optional for the 911 Turbo) can be activated or from the vehicle settings

As in the previous models, the new 911 Turbo include the Porsche Communication (PCM) system with module as part of the standard This latest PCM generation features like a universal interface, three-dimensional navigation map city and terrain models a satellite map overlay, a map-based limit display and controls for the Bose® Surround Sound

Full-LED headlights with levelling adjustment

Porsche a number of highly developed and features for the new 911 Turbo models, of which are available as standard in the S One of the distinctive features of the Turbo S is its headlights. These headlights significantly from the Bi-Xenon in the 911 Turbo, for which the LED system is as an option.

The full-LED headlights fatigue-free driving with LED light colour, which is similar to daylight, and enhanced of contrasts. The main headlight also includes a new integrated daytime running light, is a highly attractive feature to the brand.

Camera-based assistance for and road sign recognition

For the time in the new 911 Turbo models, and for Porsche sports cars, the option with reversing will be offered at the end of this Combined with ultrasonic in the front and rear apron, option also comprises a above the rear licence The control unit connected to the generates an additional vehicle which the driver can choose to on the PCM monitor.

The image output the reversing camera can also be with the top view from the system.

Another camera-based is traffic sign recognition. information system uses a to detect the current speed as well as the start and end of no overtaking It also takes temporary signs into consideration.

If the does not recognise a particular the speed limit stored in the system is displayed automatically.

adaptive cruise control and the Burmester sound system

The cruise control system Porsche Active Safe also offers some new functions. The integration of the Auto Stop function is a new feature for system. In the new 911 Turbo models, the offers the opportunity to automatically off the engine after slowing the to a stop via the cruise control

As in the 911 Carrera models, the Burmester® Surround Sound system is offered as an option for the new 911 Turbo and 911 S models. Based on the experience with the many award-wining already featured in the Panamera and models, this premium package offers a performance and sound quality that is in the sports car segment.
