Neither the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) nor the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) has crash-tested the Porsche 911, as is common with expensive sports cars, but it packs a healthy set of standard and optional safety equipment.

Integrated into all 911s, Porsche Stability Management (PSM) offers the benefits of a stability and traction control system with gradations depending on the performance mode selected, all tuned to deliver effortless performance while keeping the car pointed in the direction the driver intends--even if they mishandle the car. A standard set of airbags, including front and side units, plus Porsche Side Impact Protection (POSIP) which adds thorax airbags in the seats and an upward-inflating airbag in the door panel, plus side impact protection in the doors.

Optional ceramic composite brakes can take the braking ability of the 911 even higher, and the aluminum-and-steel body is designed from the ground up to absorb impact energy while protecting the occupants.

Conclusion

It hasn't yet been crash tested, but the 2012 Porsche 911 offers an impressive array of standard safety equipment.

How does the
TCC Rating work?
The TCC Rating is a clear numeric rating value based on a 10-point scale that reflects the overall opinion of our automotive experts on any vehicle and rolls up ratings we give each vehicle across sub-categories you care about like performance, safety, styling and more.

Our rating also has simple color-coded “Stop” (red), “Caution” (orange),
or “Go” (green) messages along with the numerical score so you can easily understand where we stand at a glance.

Our automotive experts then also collect and show you what other websites say about these different aspects of any vehicle. We do this leg work for you to simplify your research process.
