The new Porsche 911 is coming to European market at the beginning of 2019. The prototypes of the new nine-eleven are now completing the final testing programme around the globe – putting the new sports cars under a great pressure. From climate zones with temperature differences of up to 85 degrees Celsius to sprinting across elevation changes spanning more than four kilometres, enduring traffic jams in major cities and setting new records on the racetracks. Every component of the car must function just as reliably as it did at the outset.
First of all, the testings are focused on the chassis and engine, which have been enhanced even further to heighten both performance and everyday use. Additionally, there are function tests and stress tests for the entirely new operating concept in the cockpit, as well as instruments and displays. The new driver assistance systems and extended connectivity must also rise to the challenges of the strenuous testing marathon: Porsche Connect differs from country to country, so testing its operation and functions is very resource-intensive. The Nuerburgring is traditionally a part of the rigorous Porsche test and development programme. Considering all traffic rules, in order to ensure that the complete vehicle and its systems are durable and suitable for daily use, so that the eighth generation of this sports car icon continues the tradition of being the best 911 of all time.
