Special Features of the Porsche 911 Carrera (GT Silver Metallic)
8-speed Porsche Doppelkupplung (PDK) Transmission
The newly built 8-Speed PDK from Porsche offers a combination of the original system’s impressively fast shifts with improved packaging and higher torque output.
The result is that the respective engine’s astounding driving force is delivered into a sports car’s blistering acceleration.
Sport Chrono Package
The Sport Chrono Package showcases plenty of innovative features such as SPORT response, enhancing the raw power and durability of the new Porsche 911 Carrera (GT Silver Metallic).
Pressing this button rotates the engine and transmission for about 20 seconds to unleash a vast amount of power to ensure optimum speed reaction.
Porsche Communication Management (PCM)
Providing various features within reach, the Porsche Communication Management allows the driver to check vehicle diagnostics, send messages, make a phone call, and access other smartphone apps while navigating safely.
It utilizes a high-resolution touch-display and an integrated proximity-sensor to conveniently access a world of features available in the Porsche 911 Carrera (GT Silver Metallic).
Porsche Entry & Drive
Unlock your 911 Carrera’s doors without ever needing to take out your keys and activate ignition with just a push of a button – all these are possible with the Porsche Entry & Drive system.
This system reads the encrypted access code from your key and unlocks the doors once validated. The same system also applies to the luggage compartment lid door.
Porsche Active Suspension Management (PASM)
Enhancing driving dynamics while securing overall comfort, the Porsche Active Suspension Management adjusts the damping force of the 911 Carrera’s wheels based on current road conditions.
This electronic damping control system features two settings: the “Normal” mode that perfectly blends athletic performance and comfortability and the much sturdier “SPORT” mode.
Timeless Design: 911 DNA
Porsche 911 Carrera’s design embodies the iconic form of the 911 while showing a contemporary side for the current generation.
Its prominent fly line with a more extended flat lid, and the roofline curving smoothly towards the strong rear, represent the signature 911 DNA. Sharper wings, dynamic bonnet, and smooth slope to the front apron give tribute to its predecessors as well.
Interior of the Porsche 911 Carrera (GT Silver Metallic)
GT Sports Steering Wheel
Enjoy the feeling of driving a true sports car with the GT Sports Steering Wheel in all-black leather.
Within the wheel is a cluster of different driving functions and tech menus, which the drivers can easily access.
While the Porsche crest in the small decorative ring at the centre highlights the wheel’s overall sporty and luxurious design
Park and manoeuvre confidently with one of the several driver assistance features equipped on the Porsche 911 Carrera.
This ParkAssist System comes with an audible alert that increases rapidly as the obstacle is approached. Meanwhile, the supplemented visual warning displays a graphical representation of the vehicle from overhead on the PCM screen with high resolution.
Navigation via Apple CarPlay

With CarPlay’s voice recognition setting, you can quickly make hands-free calls and access other iPhone applications without leaving your eyes on the road.
Luxurious Leather Interior
Enter inside, and the Porsche 911 Carrera takes you further to a luxurious and grandiose design of a two-tone leather-covered interior.
The pronounced stitching and the Black and Bordeaux Red bi-tone colour scheme of the interior exudes a sporty edge.
While the smooth and polished surface of the leather seats increases breathability, support, and expressive appearance.
BOSE Surround Sound System
Developed to provide a superior audio experience, the BOSE Surround Sound System increases entertainment and pleasure in any adventure you take.
It features 12 fully active loudspeakers and a patented 100-watt active subwoofer, optimally tuned to the Porsche 911 Carrera’s interior acoustics.

Exterior of the Porsche 911 Carrera (GT Silver Metallic)
Simple yet Classy Color
Dressed in GT Silver Metallic, the latest Porsche 911 Carrera imposes a strong character even at a standstill. Its opaque appearance in a medium grey undercoat is sure to make heads turn on the road.
Courtesy of the Sport Design Package, this metallic look allows modern Porsche models like the 911 Carrera to better connect to their origins.
Scenic Driving Experience
Enjoy a unique driving experience with the slide/tilt sunroof that opens the cabin to a panoramic view of the sky, also allowing more light and air inside.
This electrically adjusted sunroof opens outwards so as not to hamper with the headroom. While its integral net-type deflector safeguards passengers from draught and further reduces wind noise.
Sporty Design Wheels
Featuring a set of 20/21-inch light-alloy wheels in RS Spyder Design, the Porsche 911 Carrera (GT Silver Metallic) leaves an intense impression of a timeless sporty design.
The 20-/21-inch size modification means that rear wheels are more expansive and larger in diameter than those at the front. Thus, allowing for more excellent stability and comfort.
Auto-dimming Mirrors with Integrated Rain Sensor
The integral auto-dimming mirror technology strengthens road safety as interior mirrors and exterior side mirrors automatically dim in proportion to the light reflecting from their surfaces.
By eliminating these glares, drivers can avoid dazzle and fatigue, particularly on dark highways. Meanwhile, a mounted rain sensor near the rear-view mirror prompts the car to switch on the wipers whenever rain is detected automatically.
Classic 911 Sound
The new Sports Exhaust System features two single-tube black central tailpipes that are most likely in homage to its racetrack origins. It features two catalytic converters and a rear silencer for that remarkable resonance and a 100% Porsche sports car sound.
LED Matrix Main Headlights with PDLS Plus
The standard Bi-Xenon main headlights’ light design lends the Porsche 911 Carrera a unique face characteristic, supplemented with four-point LED daytime running lights for additional safety.
As for the integrated Porsche Dynamic Light System Plus (PDLS Plus), this feature illuminates the road ahead when the driver turns a corner and has a speed-sensitive headlight range control that also works perfectly for unprecedented weather conditions.
