The 10.9-inch infotainment touchscreen, meanwhile, boasts the same operating system as the Panamera, updated Macan, and new Cayenne. Five “Direct Access Keys” allow quick responses, while drivers configure their own home screen, optimized to their preferences.
Those active safety systems may be the most contentious element of the new 911. Porsche purists may loathe the idea of relinquishing control, but it’s important to note that we’re not talking about some kind of semi-autonomous system. In fact, the 992’s active safety systems aren’t even especially advanced. The notable additions are automatic emergency braking and lane-keeping assist – both adaptive cruise control and blind-spot monitoring are available on the 991.2. The systems function as expected, but in the case of lane-keeping assist there is no lane centering capability. In fact, LKA will only start to warn the driver if it senses the 911 drifting out of its lane. There’s a fine-line between a safety system and a driving aid, and the 992’s lane-keeping assist strikes us firmly as the former. As for the forward-collision warning and automatic emergency braking, it follows a similar strategy.
