This electronically controlled system minimises the perceptible oscillations and vibrations of the entire drivetrain, particularly of the engine, and combines the benefits of a hard or soft transmission mounting arrangement.
A hard transmission mounting arrangement is best for driving dynamics, as it results in highly accurate roadholding. A soft transmission mounting arrangement, on the other hand, minimises oscillations and vibrations, thereby improving comfort on uneven road surfaces, but at the expense of driving dynamics.
Our engineers have therefore adapted the rigidity and damping of the engine mounts to driving style and road conditions. This is achieved using a fluid with magnetic properties and an electromagnetic field.
During load changes and in rapid bends, roadholding is noticeably more stable, thanks to a harder transmission mounting arrangement. The dynamic engine mounts also reduce the vertical oscillations of the engine when accelerating or at full load.
The result: a higher, more consistent driving force on the rear axle, increased traction and improved acceleration. And with a moderate driving style, comfort is improved, thanks to the softer adjustment of the dynamic engine mounts.
* Data determined in accordance with the measurement method required by law. Since 1 September 2017 certain new cars have been type approved in accordance with the Worldwide Harmonised Light Vehicles Test Procedure (WLTP), a more realistic test procedure to measure fuel/electricity consumption and CO₂ emissions. As of 1 September 2018 the WLTP replaced the New European Driving Cycle (NEDC). Due to the more realistic test conditions, the fuel/electricity consumption and CO₂ emission values determined in accordance with the WLTP will, in many cases, be higher than those determined in accordance with the NEDC. This may lead to corresponding changes in vehicle taxation from 1 September 2018. You can find more information on the difference between WLTP and NEDC at www.porsche.com/wltp.
Currently, we are still obliged to provide the NEDC values, regardless of the type approval process used. The additional reporting of the WLTP values is voluntary until their obligatory use. As far as new cars (which are type approved in accordance with the WLTP) are concerned, the NEDC values will, therefore, be derived from the WLTP values during the transition period. To the extent that NEDC values are given as ranges, these do not relate to a single, individual car and do not constitute part of the offer. They are intended solely as a means of comparing different types of vehicle. Extra features and accessories (attachments, tyre formats, etc.) can change relevant vehicle parameters such as weight, rolling resistance and aerodynamics and, in addition to weather and traffic conditions, as well as individual handling, can affect the fuel/electricity consumption, CO₂ emissions and performance values of a car.
