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.
