Porsche Doppelkupplung (PDK) 911 Turbo S Cabriolet

Porsche 911 Turbo S Cabriolet - Porsche Doppelkupplung (PDK)

Porsche Doppelkupplung (PDK)

All of the 911 Turbo models are equipped as standard with PDK featuring manual and automatic modes. PDK delivers remarkably fast gear changes without interrupting the flow of power. With excellent acceleration values and low consumption. With the same high level of comfort.

PDK has seven gears at its disposal. Gears one to six have a sports ratio and top speed is reached in 6th gear. The 7th gear has a long ratio and helps to reduce fuel consumption by keeping engine revs low.

PDK is essentially two gearboxes in one. This double-clutch arrangement provides an alternating, non-positive connection between the two half gearboxes and the engine by means of two separate input shafts.

The flow of power from the engine is transmitted through one half gearbox and one clutch at a time, while the next gear is preselected in the second half gearbox. During a gear change, therefore, one clutch simply opens and the other closes at the same time, enabling gear changes to take place within milliseconds.

Depending on the gearshift programme (SPORT button activated or deactivated), the gear change is optimised for comfort or for sporty driving.

With the optional Sport Chrono Package (standard in the 911 Turbo S models) PDK is enhanced by the ‘Launch Control’ and ‘motorsport-derived gearshift strategy’ functions.
