Porsche has finally previewed the next-generation Porsche 911 in a set of pictures before its official launch. The eight-generation Porsche 911 will be launched in Europe in early 2019 and the Italian carmaker has shared the pictures it took during the testing. The prototypes of the 2019 Porsche 911 have been tested in different climate zones with temperature difference being up to 85-degree Celsius. The prototypes have been tested for endurance in lengthy traffic jams across various cities and on the race tracks too.
The testing focuses primarily on the chassis and engine, which have been enhanced even further to increase both performance and everyday use. Additionally, there are functional checks and stress tests for the entirely new operating concept in the cockpit, as well as instruments and displays. The new driver assistance systems and enhanced connectivity has also been assessed.
Porsche took the 2019 911 to the Death Valley in the USA, to test the air conditioning, thermal management, and combustion behaviour which needed to pass functional checks in temperatures up to 50 degrees Celsius. Porsche has also checked the interior components that they do not expand or contract or make noises when exposed to extreme heat.
Finland where temperature drops below -35 degree Celsius was chosen as the freezing region to test for cold-start testing, heating traction, handling and braking behaviour as well as the response speed control system (electronics) which are related to the driving dynamics. Endurance runs saw the new 911 test cars on China’s roads for typical traffic situations where different fuel quality was also used.
At last, the prototypes were also taken to the lowest point of the death valley which is about 90 metres below the sea level and then at a height of 4300 metres on the Mount Evans, Colorado where the capability of the bi-turbo chargers and the fuel system was tested. In total, Porsche claims that the prototype cars have been driven for 30 lakh km.
