The two central components of the PDCC Sport system are the electromechanical anti-roll bars on the front and rear axles.
Hydraulic systems require a permanently powered pump and therefore use more energy than an electromechanical solution that is only active temporarily. Moreover, an electromechanical anti-roll bar reacts more quickly. This is why, for the new
The components and function of the PDCC Sport in detail: the electromechanical components are located in the center of the anti-roll bar. They consist of an electric motor, a sensor board (which records and stores important parameters of the anti-roll bar), and a gearbox. Outside of the anti-roll bar, the control unit is integrated into the car. If the vehicle drives into a corner, the electric motor instantaneously twists the left and right halves of the anti-roll bar in opposite directions. In doing so, it generates massive torque, which reduces the compression and decompression of the wheels beyond the capabilities of a purely mechanical anti-roll bar, effectively suppressing the roll of the

* 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.
