6-speed manual transmission.
The precise 6-speed manual transmission is fitted with a dual-mass flywheel and its optimally tuned gear ratios bring the high power output of the engine directly to the road. It also ensures a particularly sporty driving experience. Tight curve ahead, shift down, long straight, shift up: it's in your hands – in the truest sense of the word. This is performance which is not only measured in power values, but also in all quantities of driving pleasure. And the dynamic throttle-blip function plays its part too in keeping you, and your endorphin levels, busy.
For the 718
In short: PTV improves the driving dynamics. In detail: The integrated mechanical rear differential lock enables higher traction and lateral dynamics as well as significantly improved vehicle stability during load changes in corners and when changing lane. In addition, when the car is driven assertively into a corner, brake pressure is applied to the inside rear wheel. Consequently, a greater amount of drive torque is distributed to the outside rear wheel, almost pulling the car into the corner. Steering response is improved, agility is increased.
GT sports suspension.
The lightweight spring-strut axle at the front is typical of a GT, the lightweight spring-strut axle at the rear is adjusted to the high performance of the 718
Porsche Active Suspension Management (PASM -30 mm).
This electronic adjustment of the shock absorber system actively and continuously adjusts the damping force on each wheel, based on current road conditions and driving style. PASM has two settings: 'Normal', which is a blend of performance and comfort, and 'Sport' where the set-up is much firmer.
Dynamic transmission mounts.
This electronically regulated system minimises perceptible oscillations and the vibration of the entire drivetrain, in particular the engine. It also adjusts the damping force and stiffness to the driving style and road surface conditions. The results are greater and more uniform drive force, increased traction and faster acceleration.
Porsche Stability Management (PSM).
PSM is an automatic control system for maintaining stability at the limits of dynamic driving performance. In addition to the anti-lock braking system (ABS), it includes Electronic Stability Control (ESC) and Traction Control (TC). Alongside the performance tuning with extremely sensitive and accurate regular systems interventions, the systems can be switched off completely in two stages.
Proven in motorsport: the optionally available
In addition to the regular maintenance as part of the standard maintenance intervals, additional maintenance must be carried out for racing use.
In the 718
The adaptive Sports seats Plus have an electric 18-way-adjustment that can be used to comfortably adjust the seat height, squab and backrest angle, seat depth, fore/aft adjustment and four-way lumbar support. The seat centre is finished in Race-Tex, the 'GT4' logo is embroidered on the headrests.
The full bucket seats are made of carbon-fibre reinforced plastic (CFRP) with carbon-weave finish. This provides especially good lateral support at minimal weight. The fore/aft adjustment is manual, the height adjustment is electric. The seat centre is finished in Race-Tex, the 'GT4' logo is embroidered on the headrests.
¹Child seats are not compatible with full bucket seats.
PCM is your central control centre for audio and communication. It has mobile phone preparation, audio interfaces and a high-resolution 7-inch touchscreen display which can be used to control many of the vehicle functions. In addition, multiple Car Connect Services, such as vehicle positioning via smartphone, are available to you.
Thanks to Real-time Traffic Information you’ll always be on the fastest route. As a component of the navigation and infotainment services, online navigation has the advantage of accessing map material which is updated daily, while at the same time taking into account all the relevant traffic reports in real time.
