Upshift prompt for fuel-economy-optimised driving
The consumption-oriented upshift indicator A in the tachometer at the right beside the digital speed display 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.

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

Tiptronic S
Porsche Tiptronic S is an 8-speed automatic transmission and features an "automatic" and a "manual" gearshift mode.

In automatic selection mode (selector-lever position D), gear changing is automatic.

You can change temporarily from automatic to manual mode using the rocker switches on the steering wheel, depending on the driving program.

In manual selection mode (selector-lever position M), you change gear using the shift buttons on the steering wheel or by pushing the selector lever forward or back.

The functions of selector-lever positions D and M are different in the on-road driving program and the off-road driving program.

You can change between selector-lever positions D and M as you wish while driving.

The currently engaged gear is retained when you change from D to M.

If you change from M to D, the gear-changing map suitable for your current driving style is selected and the appropriate gear is engaged.

Make sure not to actuate the shift buttons on the steering wheel inadvertently, thereby triggering undesired gear changes.

Changing selector-lever position
The selector lever is blocked when the ignition is switched off.

The selector lever can be moved from position P and N only with:

  1. the ignition switched on,
  2. the brake pedal pressed and
  3. the release button pressed (arrow).

Release button
The release button (arrow) on the front of the selector lever prevents unintentional gear changes.
