Porsche Doppelkupplung (PDK)

Offering both a manual gearshift and an automatic mode, 7-speed PDK promises to deliver sports performance with efficiency and comfort as well as rapid gear changes with no discernible interruption in the flow of power.

PDK is essentially two gearboxes in one. The double clutch provides an alternating, friction-locked connection between these two half gearboxes and the engine. Gears 1 to 6 have a sports ratio and top speed is reached in sixth gear. The seventh gear has a long ratio, which helps to keep the engine revs low, even at high speeds. Depending on the gearshift programme (SPORT button activated or deactivated), the gear change is optimised for comfort or sporty driving.

For the Panamera GTS, we’ve made PDK even sportier. The gearshift programmes (Normal, SPORT or SPORT PLUS) configure the gear changes to be sporty to extremely sporty. During an upshift, for example, selected engine cylinders are deactivated temporarily, which enables the speed of the engine to be synchronised with the speed of the transmission more quickly. This results in even faster shift times accompanied by a characteristic motorsport engine sound.
