Porsche - Drive and chassis

Drive and chassis

The active all-wheel-drive Porsche Traction Management (PTM) in conjunction with Porsche Stability Management (PSM) permanently monitors the driving status and optimally distributes the power to the front and rear axles according to the driving situation. For excellent propulsion on long straights, in tight bends as well as on surfaces with varying grip.

The 7-speed Porsche Doppelkupplung (PDK) with manual and automatic modes enables fast gear changes with no discernible interruption in the flow of power.

Porsche Dynamic Chassis Control (PDCC) including Porsche Torque Vectoring Plus (PTV Plus) guarantees considerable control in lateral driving, and therefore body stabilisation too. The result: ultimate traction and agility at any speed. A precise steering feel and balanced load change performance. Even more fun in every corner.

The adaptive air suspension with Porsche Active Suspension Management (PASM) offers uncompromising sportiness or even more comfort at the touch of a button.

The Sport Chrono Package enables an even sportier tuning of the Panamera Exclusive Series with outstanding driving dynamics.

The Panamera Exclusive Series is equipped with the Porsche Ceramic Composite Brake (PCCB) which has been tried and tested on the racetrack. Recognisable by the yellow brake calipers, it provides a constantly high braking performance and optimised handling. The key advantage of the PCCB is the extremely low weight giving better roadholding and increased driving and ride comfort.

The LED main headlights with black elements including Porsche Dynamic Light System Plus (PDLS+) ensures optimum illumination of the road, supported by helpful functions such as the static and dynamic cornering lights, the adverse weather function, the dynamic main beam and the Intersection Assistant.

The ParkAssist (front and rear) is fitted as standard, enabling comfortable, easy manoeuvring and parking.

There is also the cruise control for automatic speed regulation. Upon request, you can have the adaptive cruise control including Porsche Active Safe (PAS). A radar sensor in the front controls your speed depending on the distance from the vehicle in front. The system brakes softly as the distance reduces, and will bring the car to a standstill if necessary.

The optional Lane Change Assist provides a visual warning in the exterior mirrors whenever a vehicle approaches you in the neighbouring lane.

The Lane Departure Warning is available upon request. The system will sound a warning tone whenever you steer towards a divider line marking and begin to leave the current lane without indicating.

The optional speed limit indicator displays speed limit and overtaking restrictions (start and end) in the PCM and in the instrument cluster.

Porsche Car Connect, the smartphone app, connects your Panamera Exclusive Series with the opportunities of the 21st century. It enables you to access various data relating to your car and to control certain functions remotely – irrespective of your location. Functions that accompany you on your travels, so that you can concentrate more on the important thing about a Porsche – driving pleasure.
