2013: Adaptive aerodynamics
In 2013, Porsche introduced the world’s first sports car with adaptive aerodynamics, the new 911 Turbo. The system consists of an extendible front spoiler and adjustable rear wing. It offers drivers a unique combination of everyday convenience, efficiency and performance. While the system automatically adjusts to maximum ground clearance or minimum drag depending on the speed, the 911 is track-ready at the push of a button. For the first time ever, the 911 Turbo achieved a downforce in this performance mode that was close to that of thoroughbred racing 911s. Porsche underlined yet again that its roots lie in racing and continued to transfer experiences gained on the track to series-production sports cars.
