Recommended settings
Sport mode
The selectable chassis settings mean that the vehicle can offer various modes for a sportier overall setup.

When sport mode is selected, all the vehicle┬┤s control systems are intentionally shifted towards greater agility and driving performance:

  1. The sports exhaust system is be switched to a sound-optimised mode, but can be switched off separately via the button.
  2. The Auto Start Stop function is deactivated.
  3. PASM (Porsche Active Suspension Management) is automatically changed to Sport mode, resulting in a stiffer suspension setup.
  4. PDCC (Porsche Dynamic Chassis Control) is automatically set to Sport mode and this further reduces the roll tendency of the vehicle.
  5. The air suspension automatically changes to the low level setting.
  6. The Tiptronic S transmission changes to a sportier shift strategy.
    The gear-changing points are shifted to higher speed ranges. Upward shifts are initiated later and deceleration shifts are performed earlier.
  7. The electronic accelerator pedal reacts sooner and the engine is more responsive to throttle inputs.
  8. Sporty engine tuning is activated.
  • For further information:
    Please see the chapter "PORSCHE ACTIVE SUSPENSION MANAGEMENT (PASM)" on page 211.
    Please see the chapter "PORSCHE DYNAMIC CHASSIS CONTROL (PDCC)" on page 212.

Sport mode can be activated when the ignition is switched on and when the on-road driving program is selected.

Sport mode cannot be selected when the off-road driving program is engaged.

The message "Sport unavail. with active off-road function" will appear on the multi-function display of the instrument panel.
