A timeless idea only holds on to its youthful vigour if it is constantly upgraded. So every new generation of the 911 also represents a new start. For an even better 911.
The clear design language of the new 911 and its striking lines are novel and yet familiar. Inside and out. The wide rear end with seamless taillight strip now unites all 911 models. Great clarity even in the interior: this is where classic sports car ergonomics meet the digital possibilities of today.
The new generation of engines is more powerful and even more efficient. The 3.0 litre six-cylinder twin-turbo engine of the 911 Carrera S models produces a full 331kW (450hp). The acceleration is enormous. With the Sport Chrono Package and Launch Control, the 911 Carrera 4S, for example, sprints from 0 to 100km/h in just 3.4 seconds.
The top speed: 306km/h. Forward thrust that gets the new 8-speed Porsche Doppelkupplung (PDK) on the road even more effectively. The newly designed Porsche Active Suspension Management (PASM) increases sporty performance and comfort. Driver assistance systems, such as Lane Keeping Assist, including traffic sign recognition and Night Vision Assist, make driving easier.
Moving with the times. Changing as you go. And remaining true to yourself at the same time. A timeless sports car in the best sense.
The new 911.
Timeless Machine.
The silhouette of the 911 stands for timeless design. But the new 911 also proves how contemporary it is, especially from behind. The rear end is powerfully, clearly and precisely designed. The rear screen appears visually extended and merges, almost seamlessly, into the black tailgate grille. The new, vertical, third brake light is integrated into this. Directly beneath are the seamless light strip, between the threedimensional LED taillights, and the newly designed model logo in Light Silver. The rear apron surrounds the newly designed tailpipes of the exhaust system. The new 911 also appears particularly athletic due to the differently sized wheels at the front and rear.
A design that unites traditional and modern. That ensures more dynamism on the road. And causes a sensation for everyone who follows the 911.
Viewed from the front, the new 911 tells the story of its past. And reveals much about its own future. The wings are clearly shaped and highlight the powerful geometry and design DNA. The newly designed bonnet with its characteristic dynamic recess profiles – and its straight slope to the front apron – is a nod to the 911 models of the first generation. Modern LED technology is used in the main headlights with four-point daytime running lights and dipped beam. The camera and sensors in the comfort and assistance systems are integrated under the front apron.
The clarity of the design of the new 911 can be seen in the details. The newly designed exterior mirrors are clear cut, while the lowering door handles are discreetly integrated into the car’s image. Thanks to these details, the overall profile of the new 911 appears more compact, more polished and more technical.
Good design should be pioneering. So should technology. The interior of the new 911 is, therefore, also blazing new trails – in that it reflects old strengths and expands new possibilities.
The interior clearly emphasises the horizontal. All relevant operating controls are located, within grasp, to the left and right of the multifunction sports steering wheel. For great operating comfort and therefore full concentration on the road. Directly in view: the instrument cluster with analogue rev counter and two high-resolution 7˝ displays. They provide all the essential car information on virtual instruments. Right beside this: the high-resolution 10.9˝ touchscreen display of Porsche Communication Management (PCM) including online navigation.
The elevated centre console is decoupled from the dashboard and, like the finishes on the dashboard and door panels, underlines the horizontal orientation of the interior. With the Porsche Advanced Cockpit control concept, it now houses only a few, partially touch-sensitive, buttons. Above this are five buttons, which have been consciously kept as analogue buttons, for direct access to the essential functions of drive and chassis.
Tradition meets future: we don’t see it as a compromise. But as the best of both worlds.
From intuitive technology to great comfort. The completely redesigned Sports seats offer secure support even on dynamic cornering manoeuvres. The multifunction sports steering wheel allows for comfortable use of audio, telephone and navigation functions. You notice the feel of the operating controls immediately. Every button, every grip, every air outlet has been carefully considered down to the last detail and in high quality.
The high-grade feel is highlighted by the finishes in Dark Silver Diamar, or as an option in Light Silver Diamar, brushed aluminium or fine wood. Other leather and finish variations are available upon request.
We hear over and over again how the potential of the horizontally opposed engine has been exhausted. Our engineers just smile – and then prove it’s not true. The power output and efficiency of the horizontally opposed engine have been once again increased in the new 911. The engine mounts have also been positioned closer to the centre of the vehicle. This reduces vibrations and increases driving stability. But you will still feel the power of the 3.0 litre six-cylinder twin-turbo engine with its 331kW (450hp), we promise. The maximum torque of 530Nm alone will make sure of that. On this basis, the new 911 Carrera 4S reaches 100km/h with Sport Chrono Package and Launch Control in a mere 3.4 seconds. Top speed is not achieved until 306km/h.
With the new standard 8-speed Porsche Doppelkupplung (PDK), the power of the engine is transferred even more efficiently to the road. And the driving pleasure is enhanced. PDK allows extremely fast gear changes without interrupting the flow of power – not even by a millisecond. In comparison to previous generations, the new 8-speed PDK also offers a perceptibly wider middle ground between comfort, performance and efficiency.
Porsche Traction Management (PTM) is an essential feature of the 911 Carrera 4S. Working in conjunction with Porsche Stability Management (PSM), the all-wheel drive therefore always ensures the appropriate distribution of force required for excellent driving performance and particularly wellbalanced handling when driving at the limit.
So what is the impossible? We see it this way: a great deal is possible with a timeless concept and a strong inner drive.
In the new 911, the route itself is the destination. Where to? We’ll see. As long as we get there sportily. It’s then that the 911 is in its element. And the chassis is fully involved.
Depending on the road conditions and the driving mode, the upgraded Porsche Active Suspension Management (PASM) actively and continuously controls the damping force for each individual wheel. Result: reduced body movement and thus more comfort with increased dynamism. The PASM sports suspension, lowered by 10mm, is available as an option, making the new 911 even more neutral and balanced when it’s on the road.
Porsche Torque Vectoring Plus (PTV Plus) provides exceptional traction and great agility at all speeds – with precise steering response and balanced load change behaviour. And tremendous fun on corners. Upon request, Porsche Dynamic Chassis Control (PDCC) minimises body roll in the new 911 during dynamic cornering manoeuvres, and reduces lateral body movement in the vehicle on rough road surfaces.
Acceleration, even when decelerating. It sounds like a paradox, but for 70 years it has been as important a part of our development work as increasing your heart rate when you start your Porsche. This is particularly relevant for the motorsport-proven Porsche Ceramic Composite Brake (PCCB). Its ceramic brake discs are particularly light and have a diameter of 410mm at the front and 390mm at the rear – for considerable braking performance. Characteristic: the yellow painted fixed brake calipers on the front and rear axles. Just as characteristic: its extraordinary performance – for when you need to go slow, fast.
Moreover, for the first time ever, the new 911 is on the road with differently sized wheels. 20-inch wheels are used at the front and 21-inch at the back in the 911 Carrera S models. While the broader contact surface optimises driving performance, the larger diameter of the rear wheels increases stability and comfort.
Sport Chrono Package
Sport Chrono Package
It’s well established in our motorsport history that we are obsessed with best driving times and how to measure them precisely. The result of this: the Sport Chrono Package including mode switch and Porsche Track Precision app. For an even sportier tuning of the chassis, engine and transmission. And to determine your absolute personal best time.
With the mode switch including SPORT Response button on the steering wheel you can choose from five driving modes: ‘Normal’, ‘SPORT’ and ‘SPORT PLUS’, as well as ‘Individual’ mode and the new ‘WET’ mode, which helps support the driver when driving in the wet. With the SPORT Response function, the engine and transmission are prepared for the fastest possible unleashing of power. The result: maximum responsiveness for approximately 20 seconds.
The Sport Chrono Package also includes: the Porsche Track Precision app for measuring and managing lap times and driving data. To show you precisely what your new personal best time looks like.
Lighting and assistance systems
Lighting and assistance systems
A rare luxury these days: having the time to concentrate exclusively on what's directly in front of you. The next corner for example. Therefore, the new 911 avails itself of a variety of assistance systems that enable you to remain true to yourself. For example, the collision and brake assist or the new WET mode¹⁾ – a system for recognising obvious wet road surfaces, that aids drivers when driving in the wet. Further assistance systems are available on request, for example adaptive cruise control or ParkAssist with Surround View. For a performance boost in safety and driving experience. And for even greater freedom when driving.
The main headlights of the new 911 Carrera S models are completely fitted with LED technology. For fast responsiveness and powerful illumination. Unmistakably Porsche: the four-point daytime running lights with dipped beam. Available as an option: LED main headlights with matrix beam including Porsche Dynamic Light System Plus (PDLS Plus) and Main Beam Assistant. Thanks to 84 individually controlled LEDs, the light cones are optimally configured for any driving situation. Vehicles in front of you or on the opposite side of the road are dimmed, while the areas in between and next to them are still fully illuminated.
All new 911 Carrera S models have the new taillight strip and the three-dimensional taillights. LED technology is used for all functions here too. Also new: the redesigned shape and position of the third brake light.

¹⁾ The ‘WET’ driving programme is not a substitute for adopting appropriate driving in different road and weather conditions, and is, at the most, an aid for the driver.

You can’t have great sporty performance and great comfort? We strongly disagree. The 911 has always united both – as only the 911 can. It is also impressive with its good ergonomics and high-quality interior materials. And has many other options to individually increase comfort and sporty performance.
The Sports seats Plus, available on request, offer even better lateral support for dynamic driving. The two-zone automatic climate control creates a pleasant atmosphere in any driving situation. The new optional ioniser improves the air quality in the interior.
Porsche Communication Management (PCM) is your central control centre for audio, navigation and communication as well as for a variety of assistance systems. The Burmester® High-End Surround Sound System, available on request, offers sound performance of the highest level, for your own individual 911 soundtrack.
