engine cooling system ignition system sport exhaust system dfi and variocam plus enable a tremendous amount of power to be produced with comparatively low emissions fuel consumption and noise the same applies to our efficient cross-flow cooling system as used in motorsports the ignition system is a static high-voltage system each i ndividual spark plug has a separate ignition coil ensuring excellent combustion every time if you want to be heard it s better to speak convincingly rather than loudly the sport exhaust system follows this principle fitted as standard in the 911 carrera gts models it makes the typical porsche sound even more pow erful even more resonant and even more sporty the sound varies with driving behavior ranging from a robust output during normal driving to a distinctly more aggressive tone during performance use the sport exhaust system is activated using a button on the center console the look like the acoustics has a clear accent the tailpipes are painted black

wheels porsche active suspension management pasm included as standard equipment porsche active suspension management pasm is an electronic active damping system it offers continuous adjustment of the damping force on each wheel based on the current driving situation and your driving style at the press of a button the driver can select between two different modes `normal which is a blend of performance and comfort and `sport where the setup is much firmer the balance between comfortable and uncompromisingly sporty sensors monitor the movement of the vehicle body for example under heavy acceleration and braking or on uneven roads the control unit tunes the dampers to the optimum hardness for the selected mode to reduce roll and pitch and to increase contact between each individual wheel and the road psm which comes as standard is an automatic control system that helps stabilizes the vehicle at the limits of dynamic driving performance sensors continuously monitor driving direction
