The Sport Chrono Package enables an even sportier tuning of the chassis, engine and transmission. And launches you to unprecedented sporty heights. The key component is the mode switch on the steering wheel, derived from the 918 Spyder. Without your hand having to leave the steering wheel, you can choose any of four settings: Normal, SPORT, SPORT PLUS and Individual. In this way, you can adapt the vehicle even more to the way you want to drive.
In combination with PDK, you benefit from three additional functions. The first is Launch Control, which can be used to achieve the best possible standing start.
The second function is the motorsportderived gearshift strategy. In this mode, PDK is geared up for extremely short shift times and optimum shift points for the maximum acceleration available.
The third function: SPORT Response. Pressing the button in the centre of the mode switch primes the engine and transmission for the fastest possible unleashing of power.
In other words, maximum responsiveness for a period of approximately 20 seconds – useful when overtaking, for example. A timer graphic in the instrument cluster tells you how long is left.
Dynamic transmission mounts are also part of the Sport Chrono Package. This electronically controlled system minimises the perceptible oscillations and vibrations of the entire drivetrain, particularly the engine, and combines the benefits of a hard or soft transmission mounting arrangement. In short, it enhances both driving stability and driving comfort.
The Sport Chrono Package now also includes the
* 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.
