The 911 models feature two-zone automatic climate control as standard with an enhanced ventilation effect and separate temperature controls for the driver and front passenger. The available air conditioning modes are gentle, normal and strong.
An active carbon filter traps particles, pollen and odours and an automatic air-recirculation function permanently monitors air quality, reduces humidity and switches from fresh to recirculated air when required. A demister function keeps the windows clear in cold weather.
In warmer weather, a solar sensor helps the climate control to detect strong sunlight and automatically compensate for the comfort of both the driver and front passenger.
As an option, it is possible to have a programmable garage door opener integrated into the overhead console. At the push of a button, it controls up to three different garage doors, lighting systems or alarm systems.
This automatic speed control function is available as an option. For greater driver comfort on long stretches of road, cruise control operates in the 18–149 mph speed range and is activated using a button on the steering column control stalk.
The optional light design package is both practical and aesthetically appealing. It comprises dimmable LEDs in the overhead console and in the areas of the door pulls, door storage compartments, front footwells and rear seats.
For convenience, particularly at night, the ‘Welcome Home’ lighting function automatically switches on the LED daytime running lights for a defined period whenever the vehicle is opened or closed using the key remote.
A customisable delayed switch-off timer keeps the daytime running lights, the taillights and, where applicable, the courtesy lights switched on until you reach your front door.
ParkAssist is fitted as standard in the 911 Carrera Cabriolet models and is available as an option for the 911 Carrera Coupé models. Featuring four inconspicuous sensors in the rear end, the system audibly alerts the driver to the presence of obstacles detected behind the vehicle. An intermittent warning tone increases in rapidity as the obstacle is approached.
An enhanced version of ParkAssist, with four sensors in the front end, is available as an option. The audible alert is supplemented by a visual warning in the central display screen, which shows a graphical representation of the vehicle from overhead.
The optional reversing camera (only in conjunction with ParkAssist (front and rear), and with PCM) facilitates precise reverse parking and manoeuvring. Help is provided in the form of the camera image and the dynamic, superimposed guidelines on the central display screen, which illustrate the predicted course of the vehicle given the current position of the steering wheel.
With the optional Porsche Entry & Drive, you can leave your car key in your pocket. As soon as you grab the door handle or approach the luggage compartment, the system automatically checks the encrypted access code on the key. Once the key is validated, the door or the luggage compartment lid unlocks. The engine can then be started and switched off using the electronic ignition switch.
To lock the vehicle, you simply press the button on the outside of the door handle. Porsche Entry & Drive then locks the vehicle and activates the engine immobiliser and steering column lock.
