Two safety cars Porsche 922 Turbo S.


Safety car: Porsche sends two 911 Turbo S into the race.

Once more, Porsche enters the FIA World Endurance Championship WEC with two safety cars. For the upcoming Super Sebring Weekend, both Porsche 911 Turbo S safety cars will take on their mission in the well-known black and red design.

The Porsche 911 Turbo S will already be at the starting line as the official safety car of the FIA World Endurance Championship WEC when the engines start roaring on the Sebring International Raceway.


Race control sends out the safety car to help as quickly as possible in dangerous situations. During its deployment, the safety car enters the track, places itself in front of the leading vehicle and controls the speed of the grid. Only when all dangers – such as debris or stalled cars – are removed, then it leaves the track and the race is cleared again.


The Porsche 911 Turbo S has ideal prerequisites for this purpose: The 478 kW-strong (650 HP; 911 Turbo S: Consumption* combined (WLTP) 12,3 – 12,0 l/100 km, CO₂-emissions* combined (WLTP) 278 – 271 g/km) 911 sprint from zero to 100 kph in 2.7 seconds and can reach a high speed of 330 kph.

For its commitment, the performant Porsche 911 Turbo S was upgraded with extensive data and transmission technology along with a light signal system, and two additional screens in its cockpit. The large LED element on its roof displays yellow blinking lights in safety car mode. When needed, the central piece shines green. Green means: The following vehicles can be passed until the leading vehicle in the race lines up behind the Porsche 911 Turbo S.


On each day of a race, the safety car drivers perform inspection rounds to check the signal system and radio to ensure the safety of the drivers during incidents on the track. With performance in every situation.
