When consumers look at automobiles like the new Porsche 911, they’re often impressed by the car’s styling. Of course, they’re also impressed by the vehicle’s handling and responsiveness when they take the automobile for a test drive. While people expect our Porsche cars to look great and perform well, they’re often surprised by some of the safety features Porsche vehicles have.

Some of the safety features on the Porsche 911 could be called “parking features” because they make parking your Porsche car a breeze even when space is limited. The Carrera is the base trim of the 2017 Porsche 911. This model has standard parking sensors in the front and rear which will alert you if an obstacle is in your path and close to your automobile. The Carrera also has a rearview camera which displays the area that’s in back of your automobile so you can take evasive action if something is in your path.

As north Florida Porsche dealers who’ve had to squeeze into some tight parking spaces ourselves over the years, we’re happy to tell you that the 2017 Porsche 911 is eligible for the Porsche brand’s ParkAssist system. This system has four sensors in the rear end of the car and alerts motorists of the presence of obstacles behind their car. The audible alert will sound faster as your car gets closer to the detected obstacle.

You can upgrade the ParkAssist system on your automobile so that it also has four sensors integrated into your car’s front end. If your vehicle has the upgraded version of ParkAssist, your audible alert will be supplemented by a visual warning on your display screen when an obstacle is in your path.
