Porsche Doppelkupplung (PDK) 911 Turbo

Porsche 911 Turbo - Porsche Doppelkupplung (PDK)

Porsche Doppelkupplung (PDK)

Our engineers’ favorite topic? Shifting speed – and also comfortable shifting. In PDK, they combine both aspects with masterly perfection. But what does this mean for you? Gear changes in milliseconds without interrupting the flow of power and a pleasing level of comfort.

PDK has seven gears. Gears one to six have a sports ratio and top speed is reached in sixth gear. The seventh gear has a long ratio and keeps engine revs low to help reduce fuel consumption.

PDK is essentially two gearboxes in one. Whilst the drive power is transferred to the wheels through one clutch and one half gearbox, the next gear is already preselected in the second half gearbox. During a gear change, one clutch simply opens and the other closes at the same time.

Depending on the gearshift program (Normal, SPORT or SPORT PLUS), the gear change is optimized for comfort or for sporty driving.
