Adrenalin at the press of a button (goosebumps included): the Sport Chrono Package. This integrated system provides an enhanced tuning of the chassis, engine and transmission. And propels you to new realms of sportiness.
One new feature is the Mode switch on the steering wheel, derived from the 918 Spyder. This makes you feel as if you are driving in the cockpit of a race car. There are four settings to choose from without taking your hand entirely off the wheel: Normal, SPORT, SPORT PLUS and Individual, which allows you to adjust the vehicle more closely to your personal driving style.
With SPORT mode active, under full acceleration, for example, the maximum boost pressure in the lower and medium speed ranges is now temporarily increased. Engine torque is increased by up to 50 Nm during this time, taking it to 710 Nm in the 911
When SPORT PLUS mode is active, the engine responds even more directly, and PDK is geared up for the shortest possible shift times and optimum shift points for maximum acceleration and perceptibly active shift operations.
Launch Control helps you achieve optimum acceleration: a racing start.
The SPORT Response function provides for optimal acceleration whilst driving. A button in the centre of the MODE switch prepares the engine and transmission for unleashing power as quickly as possible. This means maximum responsiveness for approximately 20 seconds – for overtaking manoeuvres, for example. A graphical timer in the instrument cluster indicates for how long the function will remain available.
