Porsche 911 '992' undergoes final testing

You can find out more details about the new 8th generation Porsche 911 over at Porsche at the link below.

The sports vehicle maker has revealed that the new Porsche 911 has been subjected to a rigorous testing program ahead of its launch.

Testing at first focused on the chassis and engine, which in the new model were enhanced for everyday use and performance. Next, the human-machine interface (HMI) undergoes function and stress tests, including the driver assistance and Porsche Connect systems. At these places, the car's air conditioning, thermal management, and combustion behaviour must remain functional tests in temperatures up to 50 degrees Celsius.

Test vehicles are moving between climate zones with temperature differences of up to 85 degrees Celsius; sprinting across elevation changes spanning more than four kilometres; enduring lengthy traffic jams in major cities and setting new records on race tracks. Interior components must not expand or contract and make noises when exposed to extreme heat.


Finland where temperature dips under - 35 degree Celsius was picked as the solidifying area to test for chilly begin testing, warming footing, taking care of and braking conduct and additionally the reaction speed control system which are identified with the driving dynamics. Porsche says that this new test regime puts the cars under "a great deal of stress".

Endurance runs saw the new 911 test cars on China's roads in country-typical traffic situations and proved the fact that they can run reliably on different quality fuels. In Italy, the test cars are driven round the high-speed Nardò test tracks, where the focus is not only on top speed but also cooling and handling. In Colorado they reached heights of 4,3 km, which was a challenge for the twin-turbo charging and fuel system.

The German sports auto maker will be using the last three weeks before the debut to prepare its fans for the grand premiere and it has just started the teaser campaign.
