How Porsche Safety Tech Works

How Safety Technology Works in a Porsche Vehicle


Even casual auto enthusiasts are aware that the Porsche brand is synonymous with some of the finest vehicles in the world – luxury sedans, coupes, cabriolets, and SUVs that are designed and engineered to deliver world-class performance. But what sometimes goes unnoticed or underappreciated is the amount of time the Porsche brand invests in ensuring its vehicle lineup is exceptionally safe. Whether you visit Porsche Jacksonville for a family SUV like the Porsche Macan or a high-performance convertible like the Porsche 718 Boxster, you’ll find that these vehicles put a premium on advanced safety equipment. We invite you to stop by our Porsche dealership at 10100 Atlantic Blvd. in Jacksonville, FL for a closer look.

Important Safety Features

Whether you visit us from North Florida or St. Augustine, FL, we know that safety is a top priority in any Porsche vehicle you set out to buy. We think you’ll be pleased with the sheer number of advanced safety features that every Porsche automobile incorporates. Standard amenities like full-length side curtain airbags, front and rear side airbags, stability and traction control, and antilock brakes are part of every Porsche vehicle’s safety menu, and many Porsche automobiles get a standard “multi-collision brake system” that helps minimize the chances of multiple collisions by automatically reducing the vehicle’s speed to 6mph after the initial crash. The Porsche brand is also well-known for its highly advanced optional safety features, which include a surround-view camera for a complete, 360-view of the vehicle’s surroundings, forward collision mitigation, which detects an imminent collision and automatically brakes the vehicle, and lane-departure warning, which alerts the driver if the vehicle is drifting off-course.

Safe Models

When talking about safe Porsche models, there are plenty of candidates. In the luxury SUV class, the 2017 Porsche Cayenne comes with all of the aforementioned standard and optional safety features, and also offers available blind-spot monitoring, adaptive cruise control, a rearview camera, and front/rear parking sensors. These safety features integrate well with the 2017 Porsche Cayenne model’s elegant interior, superior steering and handling, huge list of premium standard equipment, and variety of top-grade engines. If you’re partial to a coupe/cabriolet, the 2017 Porsche 911 Carrera exhibits an impressive dedication to occupant safety. Both body styles come with a full range of standard safety features, including standard front/rear parking sensors, and the cabriolet body style incorporates automatically-deploying rollover bars that when not in use are concealed behind the rear seats. The 2017 Porsche 911 Carrera model’s optional forward collision mitigation system is also notable in that it emits audible and visual alerts when a potential crash is detected.
