Sport Chrono Package
Adrenalin at the press of a button. Goosebumps included: the optional Sport Chrono Package including the Porsche Track Precision App (PTPA) and the mode switch on the steering wheel. Its functions provide an even sportier definition of chassis, engine and gears.
Without having to move your hand completely from the steering wheel, you can choose between four settings: Normal, SPORT, SPORT PLUS and the Individual, which enables you to adjust your car even more to your individual driving style.
With the SPORT PLUS mode activated, the Porsche Active Suspension Management (PASM) and the optional Porsche Dynamic Chassis Control (PDCC) for the S-models as well as the optional rear-axle steering, provide a sportier absorption and direct shifting in corners.
In connection with the PDK, the Sport Chrono Package comes with three additional functions. The first function: Launch Control. This allows for the best possible starting acceleration, a race start. The second function: race track gear change strategy. Here, the PDK uses extremely short shift times and optimum shift points to achieve the maximum acceleration.
For uncompromising racetrack performance with active gear changes.
The third function – SPORT Response – activated by the button in the middle of the mode switch. Engine and gears are then prepared to deliver the fastest possible performance. In other words: maximum throttle response – for about 20 seconds. A graphic timer in the instrument cluster shows the function that is still available.
The stop watch on the dashboard is part of the Sport Chrono Package. To display, save and evaluate circuit times and times of alternative routes, PCM is supplied with a performance indicator. And a further part of the Sport Chrono Package: the dynamic engine mounts. The electronically controlled system reduces the perceptible oscillations and vibrations of the entire drivetrain, especially of the engine. It also combines the advantages of hard and soft engine mounting. In summary: it enhances the drive stability as well as the drive comfort. In addition, the Sport Chrono Package includes: the Porsche Track Precision App to measure lap times and drive data. These can be recorded, managed, shared and compared with other drivers via a smartphone. Graphic analysis as well as video analysis show that each millisecond provides a potential for improvement, circuit by circuit.
Together with the optional Sport Chrono Package, PSM is extended by a sport mode. It allows for a significantly sportier driving style, while PSM remains active in the background. For an even more enhanced driving experience.
PASM sports suspension
The PASM sports suspension is an optional extra for the S-models of the Coupé: the PASM sports suspension.
The body is lowered by a further 10 mm compared to PASM. The springs are harder and shorter and the cross stabilisers at the front and rear axle are torsion-resistant. The front spoiler lip has an even sportier design, the rear spoiler extends even further. This provides even less impetus at the front axle as well as downforce at the rear axle. The result is enhanced performance once again – simultaneously providing stunningly high comfort.
