All 911 Turbo models feature active aerodynamics – as a combination of a multi-stage adjustable front spoiler and a rear spoiler. The front spoiler, which is made from a flexible, pneumatic elastomer, and the rear spoiler will extend and retract synchronously in three positions.
In stage one (Start), front spoiler and rear spoiler are completely retracted. This increases suitability for everyday use because there is less risk of getting caught on ramps, thresholds or kerb edges. The spoiler lip is well protected.
In stage two (Speed), after 120 km/h, the front spoiler and rear spoiler are partially extended. This helps to ensure a considerable level of stability, a low drag coefficient and enables a high top speed.
Stage three (Performance) is activated by the spoiler button or in SPORT PLUS mode.
The front and rear spoilers are now fully extended. The ‘turbo’ or ‘turbo S’ logo can be seen on the front spoiler lip. Also, in this position, the rear spoiler is tilted by up to 15 degrees. Thanks to the high level of downforce on the front and rear axles, in this setting the car can release its full performance potential, for example on the racetrack. The downforce also provides advantages when braking at high speeds.
