Arrow Test: 2009 Porsche 911 Engine Oil Sump Test Rig

Location: Porsche Research and Development Center, Weissach, Germany.

The 2009 Porsche 911 Carrera and Carrera S mark the debut of Porsche's latest flat-six engine architecture. During the development of its next-generation of engines, Porsche created a test rig to evaluate oiling system enhancements. This rig replicates the g-forces experienced by a 911 on the Nurburgring Nordschliefe circuit.

What this means to you: It took Porsche engineers two years to develop the rig, and when you watch the video of it in action, it will become obvious why. Keep the sound turned up. — Jason Kavanagh, Engineering Editor
