2017 Porsche 911 Carrera Safety
Evidence in motorsport, the Porsche Ceramic Composite Brake (PCCB) is available as an option. On the new 911, the cross-drilled ceramic brake discs of PCCB have a diameter of 410 mm front and 390 mm at the rear – for even more formidable braking performance.
Origin of the 911 Turbo S, PCCB features six-piston aluminum monobloc fixed brake calipers on the front axle and four-piston units at the rear – all painted in yellow – braking forces that are significantly stronger and, crucially provided are exceptionally consistent . PCCB set shorter braking distances in even the toughest road and race conditions. Safety braking at high speed is also enhanced by its superior fade resistance. Another advantage of PCCB is the extremely low weight of the ceramic brake discs, which are about 50% lighter than standard discs of similar design and size. This leads to a better road holding
The new 2017 Porsche 911 models offer advanced airbag technology in the form of full-size driver and front passenger, inflated in two stages depending on the severity and nature of the accident. All new 911 models are also equipped as standard with the Porsche Side Impact Protection System (POSIP). It consists of side impact protection elements in the doors and two airbags on both sides. An integral thorax airbag is to strengthen located in each seat side, while the door panels each contain an upwards-inflating head airbag. Each thorax airbag has a volume of 10 liters and each head airbag 15 liters, ensuring excellent protection in the event of a side impact.
