Photo of the day: the new Porsche 911 goes drifting
08 November, 2018, 19:02
- The 992 911 will be revealed late this year, before hitting the market at the beginning of 2019. The models of the 2019 Porsche 911 have been tried in various atmosphere zones with temperature contrast being up to 85-degree Celsius.
In Finland, for example, at around -35 degrees Celsius, Porsche engineers tested the new 911's cold start abilities or how good the air conditioning performs in severe cold but also the car's traction, handling and braking performance. The Porsche Connect system differed from country to country, so its testing was very resource-intensive.
Porsche has tested the 911's limits in all kinds of extreme conditions, including temperatures below 30 degrees Fahrenheit.
To assess how well the interior components, combustion engine, and air conditioning can handle the heat, Porsche tested the model in the desert, to ensure the entire vehicle could withstand temperatures typical of the Gulf States in the Middle East or Death Valley in the U.S., which can reach up to 50°C, or 122°F. Apart from that, the 911 makes frequent appearances on Nurburgring for the dynamic testing where the engine, transmission, brakes and chassis undergoes gruesome tests.
For endurance testing, the 911 cruised on China's roads and sprinted along the country's race tracks in "a traffic structure that is typical for that country", where fuel quality can also vary greatly. Porsche also tested the auto as it would be used in every day driving in Germany.
The vehicles reach their geographically lowest point in Death Valley, which descends to around 90 metres below sea level; while the thin air on Mount Evans, Colorado, with a height of 4,300 metres, challenges the biturbo charging and the fuel system. By the time, testing is complete, the cars have been driven around three million kilometres in total.
A less spectacular component of testing, albeit no less important, is customer-oriented everyday driving on public roads through cities and across the countryside to ensure that the vehicle and all systems are durable for daily use.
