Porsche Panamera Turbo - Lighting concept
Model shown: Panamera GTS

Lighting concept

Standard in all new Panamera models: Bi-Xenon headlights featuring automatic and dynamic range adjustment, a headlight cleaning system and integral daytime running lights with four LED spotlights in each headlight. On the new Panamera GTS, the headlight units are finished in black.

The Porsche Dynamic Light System (PDLS) is standard in the Panamera Turbo and Panamera GTS, and available on request for all other models.

Its dynamic cornering light function swivels the headlights towards the inside of the bend, based on the steering angle and driving speed. The static cornering lights activate the auxiliary headlights in order to illuminate more of the road at tight bends and turns. In addition, beam distribution is continuously adapted in line with driving speed and prevailing light conditions. Another function is the adverse weather function. This is activated whenever the rear fog light is switched on and improves safety by reducing the dazzle to which you are exposed and by providing better illumination of the kerbside.

Automatic headlight activation is standard in all models and switches the lights on automatically when it gets dark. The lighting system also includes an automatic switch-off feature and the ‘Welcome Home’ function – a customisable delayed switch-off timer that keeps the daytime running lights and the taillights switched on until you reach 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.

LED main headlights including Porsche Dynamic Light System Plus (PDLS Plus)

A new development is available on request for every Panamera model: LED main headlights including Porsche Dynamic Light System Plus (PDLS Plus). The inner workings of each headlight comprise two light units in a stepped arrangement – a design feature that reinforces the imposing appearance of the new 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 with the daytime running lights and low light scatter, the driver’s eyes tire less quickly than with other systems.

The Porsche Dynamic Light System Plus (PDLS Plus) has been combined with the LED main headlights. Not only does PDLS Plus 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 can therefore be 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.
