A standard feature of the Panamera Turbo is the LED main headlights including Porsche Dynamic Light System (PDLS).
The other Panamera models are equipped, as standard, with Bi-Xenon main headlights, including integrated daytime running lights, each with four LED spotlights. Porsche Dynamic Light System (PDLS) is included for the Panamera GTS. The headlight units can also be finished in black.
Automatic headlight activation is standard in all models and switches the lights on automatically when it starts to get dark, and switches them off automatically too. The ‘Welcome Home’ function switches on the daytime running lights and the taillights for a user-defined period, for example to light the way to your front door.
Adaptive LED brake lights are fitted as standard and pulsate in the event of panic braking, thereby alerting following traffic more quickly to a critical situation.
The Porsche Dynamic Light System (PDLS) is standard in the Panamera Turbo and Panamera GTS, and available on request for the other models.
Its dynamic cornering light function swivels the main headlights towards the inside of the bend, based on the steering angle and driving speed. The static cornering lights activate the auxiliary headlights so as to illuminate more of the road at tight bends and turns. In addition, beam distribution is continuously adapted to the driving speed and prevailing light conditions.
Another feature, the adverse weather function, is activated whenever the rear fog light is switched on. It improves safety by reducing the dazzle and providing better illumination of the kerbside.
Porsche Dynamic Light System Plus (PDLS+) is available as an option for the Panamera Turbo – and available only in conjunction with LED main headlights for all other models. Not only does PDLS+ offer all the functions of PDLS, it also features a dynamic main beam and an intersection assistant function.
The dynamic main beam is activated from a speed of 65 km/h and detects vehicles driving in front as well as oncoming traffic. The intensity and range of the light cone is therefore adapted to the prevailing situation.
With the intersection assistant function, intersections and T junctions are recognised based on the navigation data of PCM. For optimum illumination of intersections, the system automatically switches on the left and right cornering lights. At a T junction, only the static cornering light on the same side as the emerging traffic is switched on.
Available on request: LED main headlights including Porsche Dynamic Light System Plus (PDLS+). The inner workings of each headlight comprise two light units in a stepped arrangement. The daytime running lights, each with four LED spotlights forming a continuous ring of light, are integrated into the headlights – a design feature that reinforces the imposing appearance of the Panamera models.
The LED beam is remarkably powerful and provides excellent illumination of the road. Thanks to the optimum balance between short and long distance lighting with side illumination, the similarity in colour to daylight and low light scatter, the driver’s eyes tire less quickly than with other systems.
