Your 718 now continues to maintain this distance from the vehicle ahead. If it brakes even more, adaptive cruise control will reduce your speed accordingly – even down to a halt. The system also increases the state of readiness of the brakes the moment it detects that your car is beginning to gain on the vehicle in front. On detecting a risk of collision, the system issues an audible and visual warning, and this is accompanied by a brief jolt of the brakes. If panic braking by the driver is detected, the brake pressure applied is boosted to achieve the maximum braking force that the system is able to provide.
Optional Lane Change Assist uses radar sensors to monitor the areas to the rear of the vehicle and the blind spots on either side. Above a speed of 15 km/h, the system issues a visual warning signal in the window triangle trim whenever a vehicle rapidly approaches your vehicle from behind or enters one of your blind spots. In this way, Lane Change Assist improves comfort and safety, particularly on motorways. However, the system does not actively intervene to control the vehicle and can be deactivated at any time.
Featuring four inconspicuous sensors in the rear end, optional ParkAssist audibly alerts the driver to the presence of obstacles detected behind the vehicle. An intermittent warning tone increases in rapidity as the obstacle is approached.
ParkAssist can be optionally upgraded to include monitoring of the front end with four additional sensors. The audible alert is supplemented by a visual warning in the central display screen, which shows a graphical representation of the vehicle from overhead.
The optional reversing camera facilitates precise reverse parking and manoeuvring. Help is provided in the form of the camera image and the dynamic, superimposed guidelines on the PCM screen, which illustrate the predicted course of the vehicle given the current position of the steering wheel.
The optional camera-based speed limit indicator informs you of speed restrictions and ‘no overtaking’ zones (start and end). Notifications appear on the display in the instrument cluster and on the screen of PCM.
* 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.
