Using vehicle speed sensors and seat sensors, smart airbags in the Wraith deploy with different levels of force or don’t deploy at all to help better protect passengers of all sizes in different collisions. The Wraith’s side airbags will shut off if a child is leaning against the door. The 911’s side airbags don’t have smart features and will always deploy full force.

The Wraith has standard whiplash protection, which use a specially designed headrest to protect the driver and front passenger from whiplash. During a rear-end collision, the whiplash protection system moves the headrests forward to prevent neck and spine injuries. The 911 doesn’t offer a whiplash protection system.

An active infrared night vision system optional on the Wraith helps the driver to more easily detect people, animals or other objects in front of the vehicle at night. Using an infrared camera and near-infrared lights to detect heat, the system then displays the image on a monitor in the dashboard. The 911 doesn’t offer a night vision system.

The Wraith’s optional lane departure warning system alerts a temporarily inattentive driver when the vehicle begins to leave its lane. The 911 doesn’t offer a lane departure warning system.

The Wraith has a standard Top-View Camera to allow the driver to see objects all around the vehicle on a screen. The 911 only offers a rear monitor and front and rear parking sensors that beep or flash a light. That doesn’t help with obstacles to the sides.

Both the Wraith and the 911 have standard driver and passenger frontal airbags, front side-impact airbags, driver and front passenger knee airbags, side-impact head airbags, front seatbelt pretensioners, four-wheel antilock brakes, traction control, electronic stability systems to prevent skidding, daytime running lights and rearview cameras.

The Rolls-Royce Wraith weighs 1698 to 2264 pounds more than the Porsche 911. The NHTSA advises that heavier cars are much safer in collisions than their significantly lighter counterparts.

The Rolls-Royce Wraith comes standard with an automatic transmission, for driver comfort, especially in the city. Automatic costs extra on the 911.

An eight-speed automatic is standard on the Rolls-Royce Wraith, for better acceleration and lower engine speed on the highway. Only a seven-speed automatic is available for the 911.

For better traction, the Wraith has larger front tires than the 911 (255/40R21 vs. 235/40R19).

For better ride, handling and brake cooling the Wraith has standard 20-inch wheels. Smaller 19-inch wheels are standard on the 911. The Wraith’s optional 21-inch wheels are larger than the 20-inch front wheels and 21-inch rear wheels on the 911 GT2 RS/GT3 RS.

Changing a flat tire near traffic can be dangerous and inconvenient. The run-flat tires standard on the Wraith can be driven up to 50 miles without any air pressure, allowing you to drive to a service station for a repair. The 911 doesn’t offer run-flat tires.

Suspension and Handling

The front and rear suspension of the Wraith uses air springs for a smoother, controlled ride than the 911, which uses coil springs. Air springs maintain proper ride height and ride more smoothly.

For a smoother ride and more stable handling, the Wraith’s wheelbase is 26 inches longer than on the 911 (122.5 inches vs. 96.5 inches).

For better handling and stability, the track (width between the wheels) on the Wraith is 2.8 inches wider in the front and 4.5 inches wider in the rear than the average track on the 911.

The Wraith’s front to rear weight distribution is more even (50.4% to 49.6%) than the 911’s (39.3% to 60.7%). This gives the Wraith more stable handling and braking.

The Wraith has a much larger trunk than the 911 Coupe with its rear seat up (16.6 vs. 5.1 cubic feet). The Wraith has a much larger trunk with its rear seat folded than the 911 Coupe with its rear seat folded (16.6 vs. 9.1 cubic feet).

With its coupe body style, valet key and remote trunk release lockout, the Wraith offers cargo security. The 911’s non-lockable folding seat and non-lockable remote release defeat cargo security.

Unlike the driver-only memory system optional at extra cost in the 911, the Wraith has standard driver and passenger memory, so that when drivers switch, the memory setting adjusts the driver’s seat, steering wheel position, outside mirror angle, climate settings and radio stations and the front passenger seat also adjusts to the new passenger’s preset preferences.

The Wraith’s standard easy entry system raises the steering wheel and glides the driver’s seat back, making it easier for the driver to get in and out. An easy entry system costs extra on the 911.

The Wraith has a standard heads-up display that projects speed readouts in front of the driver’s line of sight, allowing drivers to view information without diverting their eyes from the road. The 911 doesn’t offer a heads-up display.

The Wraith’s standard power windows have a locking feature to keep children in the rear seat from operating them. Porsche does not offer a locking feature on the 911’s standard power windows.

Advanced Key System optional on the Wraith allows you to unlock the driver’s door, trunk and start the engine all without removing a key from pocket or purse. This eliminates searching for keys before loading groceries, getting in the vehicle in bad weather or making a hurried start to your trip. The Porsche 911’s available Porsche Entry and Drive doesn’t unlock the trunk.

Heated windshield washer nozzles are standard on the Wraith to prevent washer fluid and nozzles from freezing and help continue to keep the windshield clear in sub-freezing temperatures. The 911 doesn’t offer heated windshield washer nozzles.

For greater rear passenger comfort, the Wraith has standard rear a/c vents to keep rear occupants more comfortable. The 911 doesn’t offer rear vents.
