With the 911, Ferry Porsche and his son Ferdinand Alexander created a sports car icon that has fascinated us for over 50 years. The secret to their success: a harmonious overall concept with a timeless design and – as our engineers sometimes call it – unique technical layout. 2+2 seats are the ideal concept for a compact, thoroughbred sports car that also meets the challenges of everyday driving. The compact engine is located at the rear, thereby providing excellent traction and characterising the unmistakable driving feel of a 911. Since 1963, we’ve been steadfastly working to further perfect the 911 concept. And we’ve never been closer to reaching this goal.
The eighth generation of the 911 is the sum of its predecessors – and therefore a reflection of the past and a vision of the future. The silhouette: iconic. The design: timeless. The technology: inspired by great racing victories and always one step ahead. The result is both the most beautiful and most modern version of the 911. Full of memories, yet also full of clues as to how we can shape the future of the sports car. This makes the 911 a timeless machine. 'The Timeless Machine'.
Exterior design
Exterior design
Only a single line is required to describe the 911: the so-called flyline with a longer, flatter lid, steeply inclined windscreen and gently rearward sloping roof line. It characterised the original 911 for over 50 years and finds its highly contemporary counterpart in the current 911.
To appreciate the design of the 911, it's best to begin where its heart beats: the rear, where its horizontally opposed engine is to be found. Surrounded by a powerful rear end that has permanently shaped the proportions of the 911. The rear end is clearly and precisely designed. Straight lines, with an evident horizontal orientation. Focusing on the essentials.
Interior design
Interior design
Good design should be pioneering, as should the technology. The interior of the 911 is, therefore, blazing new trails – in that it reflects old strengths and expands new possibilities. The principle: analog precision meets digital integration – as always, strictly aimed at the driver.
The horizontal orientation of the interior is striking. All the relevant operating controls are located, within grasp, to the left and right of the Multifunction sports steering Wheel. And therefore directly adjacent to the driver. A principle that distinguished the first three generations of the 911 – for a clear and light interior architecture and exceptional ease of use.
Directly in view: the instrument cluster with the analog tachometer as the central element. To the left and right of this are two high-resolution 7? displays that provide all the essential car information on virtual instruments. Right beside this: the high-resolution 10.9? touchscreen display of Porsche Communication Management (PCM).
The engine of the 911 models has a twin-turbo configuration. Its stand-out qualities: exceptional power across the speed range, extraordinarily direct responsiveness and a wide torque plateau, even at low speeds. In short: excellent performance that responds to the driver in an instant.


The engines have two turbochargers, one per cylinder bank, as well as the intercooler. The intercooler is an important part of exhaust gas turbocharging. It makes a substantial contribution to improving performance while simultaneously reducing emissions. The two intercoolers have swapped places with the air filter. The intercoolers are located centrally under the rear lid grille, instead of laterally in the fenders. This position improves the inflow and outflow of cooling air. The result: vastly improved efficiency.
But not only the power output and efficiency of the engine have been increased – the engine mounts are also positioned closer to the center of the vehicle. What sounds like a minor adjustment delivers enormous benefits: the engine is more firmly connected, which noticeably improves stability. Vibrations are reduced and ride comfort further improved.

Active air intake flaps

Designed to reduce fuel consumption during everyday trips and achieve superlative performance on sporty drives: the 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 or SPORT PLUS 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.

Auto Start Stop function

The Auto Start Stop function switches off the engine when the driving speed falls below 5 mph under moderate deceleration, such as when you are approaching a red light. As soon as you release the brake or depress the accelerator pedal, the engine restarts – swiftly and smoothly.

Sports exhaust system

The sports exhaust system ensures impressive resonance and an intense sports car sound – typical of the 911. It features a central rear silencer, which leads into two laterally positioned tailpipes. These tailpipes have a unique design, are made of stainless steel and available in silver or black.
8-speed Porsche Doppelkupplung (PDK)
The enhanced 8-speed Porsche Doppelkupplung (PDK) allows extremely fast gear changes without interrupting the flow of power – now even by a millisecond. In comparison to previous generations, the 8-speed PDK offers a perceptibly wider middle ground between comfort, performance and efficiency.
PDK is essentially two gearboxes in one. This double-clutch arrangement provides an alternating, force-locked connection between the two half gearboxes and the engine by means of two separate input shafts. The flow of power from the engine is transmitted through one half gearbox and one clutch at a time, while the next gear is preselected in the second half gearbox. During a gear change, one clutch simply opens and the other closes at the same time. The result: extremely short switch times with no interruption in the flow of power – in short, extremely sporty tuning. This is mainly noticeable in gears one to six. These have a sports ratio, with top speed being achieved in sixth gear.
And what about efficiency? Also high. Because thanks to the additional eighth gear, the increments of the two overdrive ratios (gears seven and eight) are even better coordinated, as is their connection to the sixth gear. Which helps to keep engine revs low, even at high speeds. Thereby improving efficiency and comfort over long distances.

Porsche Traction Management (PTM)

The essential feature of all 911 all-wheel drive models: Porsche Traction Management (PTM). PTM’s electronically controlled and fully variable multi-plate clutch optimally distributes drive force between the permanently driven rear axle and the front axle. The driving state of the vehicle is continuously monitored so that it’s possible to respond to different driving situations. Sensors continuously collect a range of data, including the rotational speed of all four wheels, the lateral and longitudinal acceleration of the car and the current steering angle. If, for example, the rear wheels threaten to spin under acceleration, a greater proportion of drive force is transmitted to the front by a more powerful engagement of the multi-plate clutch.
In this way, PTM, working in conjunction with Porsche Stability Management (PSM), always ensures the appropriate distribution of force required for excellent driving performance and particularly well-balanced handling when driving at the limits.

Porsche Torque Vectoring Plus (PTV Plus)

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. This results in direct, dynamic steering from the turn-in point.
The rear differential lock is equipped with electronic control offering a fully variable torque distribution. In interaction with Porsche Stability Management (PSM), the system reveals its strengths in terms of driving stability on varying road surfaces, as well as in the wet and snow.
What does this mean for you? Considerable lateral dynamic vehicle stability and exceptional traction. Great agility at every speed – with precise steering response and balanced load transfer characteristics. What else? Tremendous fun on corners
Porsche Active Suspension Management (PASM)
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.
PASM has two settings which can be selected using a button above the center console: in ‘Normal’ mode, the shock absorption is a blend of sporty and comfortable and in 'SPORT' mode, it is much firmer.
The new valve technology enables the damping forces to be much more widely spread and more accurately controlled – and noticeably faster. High damping forces can also be achieved even at low speeds. The results are tangible: increased driving stability, improved comfort – and above all, more athleticism in every situation.

Porsche Stability Management (PSM)

Porsche Stability Management (PSM) is an automatic control system for maintaining stability at the limits of dynamic driving performance. Sensors continuously monitor the direction, speed, yaw velocity and lateral acceleration of the car.
Using this information, PSM is able to calculate the actual direction of travel at any given moment and applies selective braking on individual wheels to restore stability. When accelerating on road surfaces with varying grip, PSM improves traction using the automatic brake differential (ABD) and anti-slip regulation (ASR). For a high level of driving stability and safety – and extraordinary agility at the same time.

Rear-axle steering

Rear-axle steering enhances performance and suitability for everyday use in equal measure. For particularly nimble handling combined with a significant increase in driving stability.
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 turning circle is reduced, cornering steering response becomes considerably more dynamic and parking is noticeably easier.
The advantage for sporty driving: at high speeds, the system steers the rear wheels in the same direction as that of the front wheels. Driving stability is increased by the virtual extension of the wheelbase and agility is enhanced by the simultaneous steering of the front and rear axles.

Front-axle lift system

The front-axle lift system provides increased ground clearance. It raises the front end of the 911 by approximately 1.5 in. – and keeps it there up to a speed of roughly 21 mph. The system therefore ensures that kerbs, ramps and car park entrances are a sporting challenge of the past.

Porsche Dynamic Chassis Control (PDCC)

PDCC is an active roll stabilisation system. It suppresses the vehicle's lateral body movement during cornering manoeuvres. In addition, it minimizes its lateral instability on uneven ground. For improved dynamic performance, even more neutral handling and increased ride comfort – whatever the speed.
Brakes & Wheels
Brakes & Wheels
Calmly decelerate. Turn your back on the competitive field at least for an instant. Never! When our engineers speak of deceleration, they’re talking about speed.
The dimensioning of the brakes is tailored and adapted to the performance of the 911 models. For example, the 911 Carrera models are equipped with four-piston aluminum monobloc fixed brake calipers with a black anodized finish at the front and rear. The brake disc diameter: 330mm on both axles. The 911 Carrera S models are fitted with red six-piston aluminum monobloc fixed brake calipers at the front and four-piston equivalents at the rear. The brakes discs have a diameter of 350mm, front and rear. For enhanced braking performance and stability.

Porsche Ceramic Composite Brake (PCCB)

Proven in motorsport, the Porsche Ceramic Composite Brake (PCCB) is available as an option. On the 911, the cross-drilled ceramic brake discs of PCCB have a diameter of 410mm at the front and 390mm at the rear – for even more formidable braking performance. PCCB features six-piston aluminum monobloc fixed brake calipers on the front axle and four-piston units at the rear – all painted in yellow. They provide braking forces that are considerably more powerful and, crucially, are exceptionally consistent.
PCCB enables shorter braking distances in even the toughest road and race conditions. And improves safety under high-speed braking, thanks to its excellent fade resistance. Another advantage of PCCB is the extremely low weight of the ceramic brake discs, which are approximately 50% lighter than cast-iron discs of a similar design and size. The result: a reduction in unsprung masses and therefore better roadholding and increased comfort, particularly on uneven roads, as well as greater agility and a further improvement in handling.
If we’ve learnt one thing during 70 years of sports car production, then it’s the importance of never losing traction. That’s why the wheels and tires on the rear axle are not only wider, but also larger than those at the front. While the broader contact surface optimizes performance, the larger diameter of the rear wheels increases stability and comfort.
The 911 Carrera models are equipped as standard with 19/20-inch Carrera wheels featuring five dual-arm spokes and the S models with 20/21-inch Carrera S wheels featuring a 10-spoke design. The material: lightweight alloy, of course. The design: traditionally sporty. Timeless, in fact. How about something even more dynamic? More intricate? In the same color as your car? More 20/21-inch wheels in various designs are available on request.
High-performance systems
High-performance systems
SPORT mode
The SPORT button enables you to select a suspension set-up where the emphasis is on either comfort or sporty performance. At the push of a button, the electronic engine management demands a sportier response. The engine dynamics become more direct, upshifts take place later and downshifts happen sooner. The optional sports exhaust system is activated.

Sport Chrono Package

Adrenaline at the push of a button, goosebumps included: the functions of the optional Sport Chrono Package including mode switch and Porsche Track Precision app enable an even sportier tuning of the chassis, engine and transmission.
With the mode-switch dial on the steering wheel you can choose from five driving modes: Normal, ‘SPORT’, ‘SPORT PLUS’ and ‘Individual’ – allowing you to adapt the vehicle even more to your personal driving style – and ‘WET’ mode.
In SPORT mode, the 911 responds more dynamically. In SPORT PLUS mode, Porsche Active Suspension Management (PASM), optional Porsche Dynamic Chassis Control (PDCC) and rear-axle steering ensure sportier damping, increased roll stability and more direct turn-in when entering corners.
In addition, the Sport Chrono Package has three more functions. The first is Launch Control, which can be used to achieve the best possible standing start in SPORT PLUS mode.
The second function is the so-called motorsportderived gearshift strategy. In this mode, PDK is geared up for extremely short shift times and optimum shift points for maximum acceleration. For uncompromising performance that is ideal for the racetrack with noticeably active gearshifts.
The SPORT Response function is activated using the button in the center of the mode switch. The engine and transmission are then primed for the fastest possible unleashing of power. The result: maximum responsiveness – for a period of approximately 20 seconds.
Another component of the Sport Chrono Package is the stopwatch mounted on the dashboard. As are the dynamic engine mounts: this electronically regulated system minimizes perceptible oscillations and the vibration of the entire drivetrain, in particular the engine, so that the benefits of a hard and a soft engine mounting arrangement can be used. In short, it enhances both driving stability and driving comfort. Also included in the Sport Chrono Package: the Porsche Track Precision app* for measuring lap times and driving data. These can be recorded, managed and shared with other drivers for comparison purposes, using a smartphone.

* App usage permitted on private land only. Operation of this product (including the video recording feature in particular) could be prohibited by laws or regulations in specific markets or events. Before any use of this product, please check that this is permitted under local laws and regulations.

PSM sport

In conjunction with the Sport Chrono Package, PSM is supplemented by a Sport mode. This allows a significantly more sporty driving style, with PSM remaining active in the background. For a further enhanced driving experience.

PASM sports suspension

PASM sports suspension is available for the first time for the 911 Carrera S Cabriolet models. The ride height is 10mm lower than with standard suspension. The springs are harder and shorter and the anti-roll bars on the front and rear axles are stiffer. The spring rates have been significantly raised, giving the 911 a more neutral and balanced presence on the road – and on the racetrack. Without having any major impact on its suitability for everyday.
In conjunction with PASM sports suspension, the front spoiler lip has an even sportier geometry, while the rear spoiler extends even more. Not only does this further reduce lift at the front axle, it also provides downforce at the rear axle for improved aerodynamics and even better performance – combined with a surprisingly high level of comfort.
Air conditioning and glazing
Air conditioning and glazing
Air conditioning
The two-zone automatic climate control has separate temperature controls for the driver and front passenger. The active carbon fiber fine dust filter traps particles, pollen and odours and thoroughly filters fine dust out of the outside air before it can reach the interior. The automatic air-circulation mode permanently monitors air quality, reduces humidity and switches from fresh to recirculated air when required.


The optional ionisation function improves air quality in the vehicle. Before it reaches the cabin, the air in the automatic climate control system is passed through an ionizer. Airborne germs and pollutants are reduced and the interior air is appreciably refreshed for an even more pleasant interior environment.

Slide/tilt sunroof

The electrically adjustable slide/tilt sunroof opens outwards so that it does not interfere with headroom. Another advantage of this special design is the particularly large aperture for increased driving pleasure under the open sky. The net-type wind deflector protects against draught and further reduces wind noise.

Slide/tilt glass sunroof

The electrically adjustable slide/tilt sunroof made of tinted toughened safety glass includes an electric roll-up sunblind that provides shade from unwanted bright light. The design, headroom and aperture specifications of the glass sunroof are otherwise identical to those of the regular slide/tilt sunroof.
Lighting and assistance systems
Lighting and assistance systems
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 center.

LED main headlights including Porsche Dynamic Light System Plus (PDLS Plus)

The LED headlights including Porsche Dynamic Light System Plus (PDLS Plus) are fitted with dynamic range control, dynamic cornering lights, speed-sensitive headlight range control and HighBeam 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 headlights featuring Matrix Design technology and High-Beam Assistant. The area to the right of the light void is lit more brightly for better guidance of the driver's visual attention. LED headlights with Matrix Design 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.

Assistance systems

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.

Warn 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

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.

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.

Reversing camera

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.

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.

* The 'WET' driving program is not a substitute for adopting an appropriate driving in different road and weather conditions, and is, at the most, an aid for the driver.

Sound systems
Sound systems
Sound Package Plus
Sound Package Plus delivers excellent sound in your 911: thanks to eight loudspeakers and a total output of 150 watts. The acoustic pattern in the vehicle interior is ideally adapted to the driver and passengers by the amplifiers integrated into PCM.

BOSE? Surround Sound System

The BOSE? Surround Sound System is optimally tuned to the specific interior acoustics of the 911. The audio system features 12 loudspeakers and amplifier channels including a patented, 100-watt active subwoofer integral to the vehicle bodyshell. This fully active system set-up enables each individual loudspeaker to be optimally adapted to the vehicle interior, transforming the 911 into an extremely fast-moving concert hall. The total output: 570 watts. BOSE? SoundTrue Enhancement Technology delivers even better audio quality and dynamics for compressed file formats such as MP3.

Burmester? High-End Surround Sound System

The road is perhaps the last place in the world where you can still listen to music without disturbance. Enough of a good reason to upgrade your enjoyment the Porsche way. Together with Burmester? – one of the world's most significant manufacturers of premium quality audio devices – we’ve created the optionally available Burmester? High-End Surround Sound System. The result: a sound performance of the highest level, individually matched to your 911 using numerous measurement and audio samples. Or in figures: 13 amplifier channels, 13 loudspeakers with maximum efficiency including an active, separate subwoofer with 300-watt class D amplifier. The result: 855 watts of pure musical pleasure in a frequency range of 35Hz to 20kHz.
The Burmester? system uses the patented integral subwoofer, which replaces the familiar separate subwoofer housing of other systems. Ribbon tweeters (air motion transformers, AMT) are used for unmistakably fine, clear and undistorted highfrequency sound reproduction with excellent level stability. All loudspeaker housings are perfectly matched and deliver a natural and richly textured spatial sound, even at top volume, thanks to the use of analog and digital filters. The exclusive sound pre-sets allow you to instantly customise your musical experience. The sound enhancer also optimizes the tone of data-compressed music files.

We need to get the most out of every day. Whether a critical business meeting or a weekend trip is on the agenda: it’s important to make the most of your own possibilities. Porsche Connect helps you do this. It puts you in the ideal starting position for any road trip – and any of your goals. With useful in-car services and the Porsche Connect app for your smartphone.

The basis for Porsche Connect is the LTE telephone module. It has a SIM card reader for exceptional ease of use and optimized data connection. Inside your 911 and to your smartphone or tablet. In certain countries, an integrated LTE-enabled SIM card and data package are also available. These provide convenient access to the services of the Navigation & Infotainment package – excluding music streaming functions. For all music services and to use the in-car WiFi hotspot, a data package is available in the Porsche Connect Store*. Of course, you can still use your own SIM card if you prefer.
