911 kilometers. Driving the new 911 from Zuffenhausen to Austria. A journey into the known. From where the car is made to where its roots live on. Every stop along the way is an experience, every meter a discovery. Every minute an insight. Exit, approach, arrival—culminating in a meeting between the future and its origin. The story continues.
Continuity arises from hindsight. No other car consistently offers so much innovation yet mysteriously seems hardly to differ. Transition—yes. But radical change—no. Fast, but not hurried. Always the best, without diminishing what came before. Not tradition and innovation, but tradition from innovation.
Christophorus is older than the 911. It predates the car by eleven years. It has been at the heart of the 911 community right from the start. A true believer. A printed testimony to individuality and collectivity, to the special qualities of each one and the value of the community as a whole. This special edition, dedicated entirely to the new 911, expresses that beautifully: eight stories that highlight the extraordinary in the familiar, the essence of place, and the compelling reference to
Explanations, impressions, explorations. All manner of questions—and of answers. What’s new about what’s proven? Is the car at home among the Friends of Air-Cooled Flat Engines? How do students at Pforzheim University and
And finally—how is renewal possible without a loss of identity? Driving up to Schüttgut in the town of Zell am See means driving home to the family estate of the

* Data determined in accordance with the measurement method required by law. Since 1 September 2017 certain new cars have been type approved in accordance with the Worldwide Harmonised Light Vehicles Test Procedure (WLTP), a more realistic test procedure to measure fuel/electricity consumption and CO₂ emissions. As of 1 September 2018 the WLTP replaced the New European Driving Cycle (NEDC). Due to the more realistic test conditions, the fuel/electricity consumption and CO₂ emission values determined in accordance with the WLTP will, in many cases, be higher than those determined in accordance with the NEDC. This may lead to corresponding changes in vehicle taxation from 1 September 2018. You can find more information on the difference between WLTP and NEDC at www.porsche.com/wltp.
Currently, we are still obliged to provide the NEDC values, regardless of the type approval process used. The additional reporting of the WLTP values is voluntary until their obligatory use. As far as new cars (which are type approved in accordance with the WLTP) are concerned, the NEDC values will, therefore, be derived from the WLTP values during the transition period. To the extent that NEDC values are given as ranges, these do not relate to a single, individual car and do not constitute part of the offer. They are intended solely as a means of comparing different types of vehicle. Extra features and accessories (attachments, tyre formats, etc.) can change relevant vehicle parameters such as weight, rolling resistance and aerodynamics and, in addition to weather and traffic conditions, as well as individual handling, can affect the fuel/electricity consumption, CO₂ emissions and performance values of a car.
