Porsche Active Suspension Management (PASM)

PASM is a system for the active adjustment of shock absorbers. The variable shock absorber system individually selects the relevant shock absorber stiffness for each wheel depending on the driving situation and driving conditions. Driving safety, agility, and comfort are optimized.

Three different chassis setups can be selected at the push of a button:
– “Comfort”

Comfort mode ensures comfortable chassis tuning.

The SPORT chassis setup offers very sporty shock absorber tuning.

SPORT PLUS mode offers particularly sporty shock absorber tuning (e.g. for race circuit driving). Apart from the manual mode selection, the PASM also adjusts the shock absorber setting toward more sporty or more comfortable depending on the driving situation.

Selecting PASM mode

In addition, the selected chassis setting is shown briefly in the multifunction display.
