Porsche 911 Undergoes Final Stress Tests

New Porsche 911: fresh images of 992 model released…

We've also seen the new 911 in numerous spy shots, nearly completely free of any disguise, and now Porsche has released this media set of the 992 undergoing testing all willy-nilly.

As with most Porsche cars, the 8th gen 911 spent time testing at the Nurburgring and fast Italian tracks like the Nardo test tracks.

Porsche says the test vehicles were moving between climate zones with temperature differences of up to 85 degrees Celsius, as well as "sprinting across elevation changes spanning more than four kilometres". At the end of the tests, Porsche says it will have driven the new 911 for about 3 million kilometers, or 1.86 million miles.

As Porsche explains, the testing first focuses on core aspects of the auto - the engine and chassis - both of which have been improved from outgoing 991-generation cars. There were also the function and stress tests for a fully new operating concept in the cockpit, instruments and displays. Next, the human-machine interface (HMI) undergoes function and stress tests, including the driver assistance and Porsche Connect systems.

Trump hopes to meet N.Korea leader next year but counsels patience
Just a year ago, he was threatening "fire and fury" against North Korea. It is also unclear which side asked for the postponement. But Pompeo abruptly postponed the talks in NY .

Porsche took the 2019 911 to the Death Valley in the US, to test the air conditioning, thermal management, and combustion behaviour which needed to pass functional checks in temperatures up to 50 degrees Celsius.

In Finland's -35°C temperatures, the tests focused on a cold start, heating, air conditioning, traction, handling and braking, as well as a response speed of control systems responsible for driving dynamics. The endurance test was carried out in China's roads and race tracks besides also proving that the 911 can run reliably despite varying fuel quality. The test vehicles reach the lowest point of their endurance run in Death Valley, which descends to around 90 metres below sea level; while the thin air on Mount Evans, Colorado - reaching heights of 4,300 metres - was the challenge for the biturbo charging and the fuel system.

After it goes on sale in the global markets, Porsche will surely bring the new-gen 911 to India sometime later next year.

Aside from the torture tests, Porsche also considered the customer-oriented everyday testing on public roads in cities and cross-country throughout Germany.
