Porsche Dynamic Chassis Control (PDCC)

It’s easy, and even makes sense, to carry on in your usual way, but what happens if a sudden change of direction leaves you thrown off course? Then, it all comes down to personal strength.

A Porsche has a clear sense of purpose and is the embodiment of strength. It demonstrates this with sporty and precise handling and excellent roadholding.

With the optional Porsche Dynamic Chassis Control (PDCC) for the S models of the 911 Carrera, these characteristics can be further accentuated: the vehicle holds the road even better and delivers even sportier performance.

PDCC is an active anti-roll system that suppresses lateral body movement during cornering manoeuvres. In addition, it minimises the lateral instability of the vehicle on uneven ground.

This effect is achieved with the aid of hydraulic stabilising actuators in the form of cylinders designed to optimise camber. Lateral roll is counteracted by forces generated at each individual wheel, based on steering angle and lateral acceleration.

The results are improved dynamic performance and increased ride comfort at all speeds, as well as optimised turn-in and stable load transfer characteristics.

In simple terms, the tires and vehicle hold the road better and you can steer through corners faster and in a more relaxed manner.

PDCC sets standards for handling performance, ride comfort and driving pleasure. In the 911, your ‘usual’ way suddenly becomes the Porsche way.
