Engine oil pressure gauge
The oil pressure is controlled according to requirements and should be at least 29 psi (2.0 bar) at an engine speed of 3000 rpm and at least 44 psi (3.0 bar) at an engine speed of 5000 rpm.

The engine oil pressure varies depending on the engine speed, oil temperature and engine load.

If oil pressure drops abruptly and a message is displayed on the multi-function display when the engine is running or while driving:

  • Stop immediately in a suitable place.
  • Switch off the engine.
  • Check whether there is an obvious oil leak on or under the car.
  • Select "Oil level" on the multi-function display:
    Please see the chapter "DISPLAY AND MEASUREMENT OF THE ENGINE OIL LEVEL" on page 112.
  • Add engine oil if necessary.

Risk of engine damage.

  • Do not continue driving if there is an obvious oil leak.
  • Do not continue driving if the warning message appears even when the oil level is correct.
  • Have the fault corrected at an authorized Porsche dealer.

Boost pressure gauge (Cayenne Turbo, Cayenne Turbo S)
The boost pressure can be displayed on the multi-function display.

  • Please see the chapter "ADAPTING APPEARANCE OF MULTI-FUNCTION DISPLAY" on page 127.

As the engine is equipped with a boost pressure control feature, the boost pressure is variable.

The boost pressure depends on the speed, ambient pressure and on the octane rating of the fuel used.

Upshift indicator
The consumption-oriented upshift indicator N to the right of the digital speed display on the tachometer helps you to develop a fuel-saving driving style.

The upshift indicator lights up – prompting you to shift up to the next-higher gear – depending on the selected gear, engine speed and accelerator pedal position.

The upshift indicator is only active when "Sport" mode is switched off.

On vehicles with Tiptronic S, the upshift prompt is only available in manual selection mode.

  • Change to the next-higher gear when the upshift indicator lights up.

Tiptronic S selector-lever position/ engaged gear display
The Tiptronic S selector-lever position (P, R, N or D) is displayed when the ignition is switched on.

When the engine is running, the Tiptronic S selector-lever position and engaged forward gear are indicated in gates D or M.
