Porsche 911 Is Completing Final R&D And Testing Phases

08 November 2018

Porsche says European 992 sales will begin in early 2019, with other markets to follow. In advance of this, the prototypes are revving up their engines again, to complete the final testing programme around the globe - putting the new sports cars under a great deal of stress.

Project manager for the complete vehicle of 911, Andreas Pröbstle, says that the drivetrain, fluids, systems, operating processes, and displays must all function without faults in testing.

We've seen the new sheetmetal and driven the prototype, so it's nearly time for Porsche to reveal the new 911.

The testing first focused on the brand's traditional core areas of expertise - a chassis and engines, which the company enhanced. The new driver assistance systems and enhanced connectivity must also be assessed as part of the strenuous testing phase.

Porsche took the 2019 911 to the Death Valley in the U.S., to test the air conditioning, thermal management, and combustion behaviour which needed to pass functional checks in temperatures up to 50 degrees Celsius. Porsche is also testing the new model around various race tracks, including the Nurburgring, as well as in dense traffic conditions.

Cold area testing, such as in Finland, focused on cold starts, heating and air conditioning, traction, handling, and braking.

On sale in 2019, the 2020 Porsche 911 is essentially all new. Endurance runs saw the new 911 test cars on China's roads for typical traffic situations where different fuel quality was also used. Elevation tests have run the gamut from Death Valley at 282 feet below sea level to Mount Evans, Colorado, reaching higher than 14,000 feet. Porsche says the test cars will have completed a total test run of 3 million kilometers when they have served their goal, and part of that is, of course, testing at the legendary Nürburgring, where many 911 customers will undoubtedly take their new pride and joy.

Also worth mentioning that the Porsche company in honor of its 70th anniversary, has released a unique version of the model 911 (993) Turbo S. This vehicle exists in a single copy.
