Optional PASM, the electronic damping control system, suits the new Boxster models down to the ground. PASM actively and continuously regulates the damper force for each wheel according to the road conditions and driving style. In addition, the body is lowered by 10 mm.
Enhanced Porsche Stability Management (PSM) is fitted as standard. This system automatically maintains stability even at the limits of dynamic driving performance. Sensors continuously monitor the direction of travel, vehicle speed, yaw velocity and lateral acceleration. Using this information, PSM calculates the actual direction of movement. Under acceleration on different road surfaces, PSM improves traction – as well as agility and safety – using the automatic brake differential (ABD) and anti-slip regulation (ASR).
The optional system for increasing dynamic performance and stability varies the distribution of torque to the rear wheels and includes a mechanically locking rear differential. At low and medium vehicle speeds, PTV significantly increases agility and steering precision. At high speeds and when accelerating out of corners, the rear differential lock ensures greater driving stability. The results are remarkable stability, easier handling and outstanding traction as well as greater agility at every speed with precise steering and stable load transfer characteristics. And, of course, lots of excitement at every twist and turn.
