The optimised 7-speed PDK with manual and automatic mode is available as an optional extra. For extremely fast gear changes, without disrupting the traction. All this with even better acceleration values and further reduced consumption.
In manual mode, the shift direction is set up like it is in race cars – shifting up backwards, shifting down forward. It will feel like driving on the circuit.
The gears 1 to 6 have a sporty feel and the highest speed is reached in gear 6. The 7th gear has been developed with the focus on consumption.
The PDK consists of two half gearboxes installed in the same casing. The Doppelkupplung connects these half gearboxes with the engine via two alternating, separate input shafts. The flow of power from the engine therefore goes via a half gearbox and a clutch, while the next gear is already set in the second half gearbox. When changing gear, one of the clutches is opened and the other simultaneously closed - for gear changes in milliseconds.
* Data determined in accordance with the measurement method required by law. Since 1 September 2017 certain new cars have been type approved in accordance with the Worldwide Harmonised Light Vehicles Test Procedure (WLTP), a more realistic test procedure to measure fuel/electricity consumption and CO₂ emissions. As of 1 September 2018 the WLTP replaced the New European Driving Cycle (NEDC). Due to the more realistic test conditions, the fuel/electricity consumption and CO₂ emission values determined in accordance with the WLTP will, in many cases, be higher than those determined in accordance with the NEDC. This may lead to corresponding changes in vehicle taxation from 1 September 2018. You can find more information on the difference between WLTP and NEDC at www.porsche.com/wltp.
Currently, we are still obliged to provide the NEDC values, regardless of the type approval process used. The additional reporting of the WLTP values is voluntary until their obligatory use. As far as new cars (which are type approved in accordance with the WLTP) are concerned, the NEDC values will, therefore, be derived from the WLTP values during the transition period. To the extent that NEDC values are given as ranges, these do not relate to a single, individual car and do not constitute part of the offer. They are intended solely as a means of comparing different types of vehicle. Extra features and accessories (attachments, tyre formats, etc.) can change relevant vehicle parameters such as weight, rolling resistance and aerodynamics and, in addition to weather and traffic conditions, as well as individual handling, can affect the fuel/electricity consumption, CO₂ emissions and performance values of a car.
