Porsche 911 Carrera Cabriolet - Dynamic engine mounts

Dynamic engine mounts

You don’t have to take the 911 onto the racetrack. But you can, more so than ever, because dynamic engine mounts are now included as part of the Sport Chrono Package.

The electronically controlled system minimises the oscillations and vibrations of the entire drivetrain, especially the engine, and combines the benefits of a hard or soft engine mounting arrangement.

A hard engine mounting delivers optimum dynamic performance because it offers the highest degree of handling precision possible. Soft engine mounts, on the other hand, minimise oscillations and vibrations. While comfort is improved on uneven road surfaces, this comes at the expense of dynamic performance.

Our engineers have solved this problem by enabling the engine mounts to adapt their stiffness and damping properties to changes in driving style and road surface conditions. This has been achieved by use of a fluid with magnetic properties in interaction with an electrically generated field. For the driver, the results are tangible. Handling is perceptibly more stable under load change conditions and in fast corners. Whenever a less assertive driving style is adopted, the dynamic engine mounts provide a higher level of comfort.
