High-Tech Handling Features

  • Porsche Traction Management (PTM): Working in tandem with all-wheel drive, PTM uses an electronic and map-controlled multi-plate clutch, automatic brake differential, and anti-slip regulation to maintain stability in all conditions.
  • Power Steering Plus: This system automatically tightens or relaxes steering for easy maneuvering at higher and lower speeds.
  • Available Air Suspension with PASM: Porsche Active Suspension Management (PASM) adjusts the air suspension to suit one of three modes: Comfort, SPORT, and SPORT PLUS.
