Porsche - Testing


The desire to test and try things out is in our genes. Apparently we got a few extra.

After the concept, design, calculation and prototype construction, just one thing is missing for a development to achieve perfection: exhaustive testing. No Porsche Engineering development escapes comprehensive testing. From the smallest component to the complete vehicle, testing is an integral part of project work. Only when a development has proven its mettle under the toughest conditions on the test bench or the track is it ready for series production.

Thanks to our connection to the sports car manufacturer Porsche, we have the requisite testing facilities and workshops to optimize every development to the point of perfection. We put our experience from the development of sports cars at our clients' disposal. In testing, as in development, the strictest confidentiality is always guaranteed.

Whether you need test benches for the powertrain such as engine transmission safety test benches or test benches for component testing such as the vibration test benches: At the Development Center in Weissach and in Bietigheim-Bissingen, we offer you a broad range of testing facilities. Not to mention our wind tunnel and EMC Center.

The proving ground of the Nardò Technical Center in Apulia in southern Italy, which Porsche Engineering acquired in 2012, rounds out our testing capabilities with an extraordinary range of testing options. Here we offer you comprehensive testing solutions. For extensive road testing we have a 12.6 km high-performance circular track, dynamics courses, noise courses, handling courses and special-surface tracks. 365 days a year.
