Porsche invented a new airbag

The German manufacturer has patented a safety cushion for convertibles.

The pillow is located on the front pillar on the driver’s side – it is assumed that it will protect its head.

In Porsche believe that the pillow will protect the driver in the event that his head slips from the front airbag in a frontal collision with partial overlap. Such a crash test is conducted, for example, by the American organization NHTSA.

The company does not rule out that in the future the new technology can be introduced to cars with a hard top.
