Off-road ABS (ABS in off-road mode)
When off-road mode is active, an ABS setup specially matched to off-road driving is activated automatically.
In the event of braking on loose ground, the permissible slip values for ABS braking are increased so that the off-road braking distance is reduced (wheels dig into the surface).
If the driver needs to steer more, off-road mode is automatically switched off to maintain steering control.

Porsche Hill Control (PHC)
Porsche Hill Control is an assistance system, which helps the driver when driving slowly downhill at speeds of between approx. 2 mph (3 km/h) and approx. 20 mph (30 km/h), e.g. on steep slopes or on wintry mountain roads, both when driving forward and reversing.
The system limits the speed by braking on all four wheels. ABS remains active to prevent the wheels from locking.
As with all brakes, the braking action of Porsche Hill Control is impaired on slippery surfaces (e.g. on icy roads or loose surfaces).
Reduced braking effect on a slippery surface.
