Airbags

The 911 Carrera models offer advanced airbag technology in the form of full-size driver and front passenger airbags, which are inflated in two stages depending on the severity and type of accident (e.g. frontal or offset frontal). In less serious accidents, the airbags are only partially inflated, thereby minimising discomfort to the occupants.

In addition to the central airbag control unit on the transmission tunnel, a pair of impact sensors are located near the headlights. This allows a crash to be detected and evaluated not just sooner, but with even greater accuracy.

Porsche Side Impact Protection System (POSIP)

Coupé or Cabriolet, the 911 models are equipped as standard with the Porsche Side Impact Protection System (POSIP). It comprises side impact protection elements in the doors and two airbags on each side. An integral thorax airbag is located in each seat side bolster, while the door panels each contain an upwards-inflating head airbag. Each thorax airbag has a volume of 10 litres and each head airbag 15 litres, ensuring excellent protection in the event of a side impact.

Cabriolet roll-over protection concept

Despite their low weight, the 911 Carrera Cabriolet models have exemplary torsional rigidity and flexural strength. Body flexing is minimal even on irregular road surfaces.

Increased protection is provided by an automatically deploying roll-over protection system if the car were to overturn. Two spring-loaded roll-over bars are neatly incorporated behind the rear seats. The roll-over sensor continuously monitors the car’s pitch and roll, contact with the road, as well as lateral and longitudinal forces. If the car were to overturn, the roll-over bars would be deployed instantly.
