How about a sports chrono package?
All of our water-cooled Porsche have a sports chrono package.Boxster GTS (981) and 911 GT3 (991.2) are standard equipment, and Panamera (971) is optional.Was.
Whenever I run winding,"Sports" or "Sports mode"Change to and run. By changing the mode, the undercarriage becomes much harder, and in the case of PDK, you can experience sports driving at high revolutions, and even with a huge body like Panamera, you can turn corners quickly and it is very fun.
As for Boxster,Auto-blipping is ON when in Sport Plus modebecome(In the case of 718, it seems that auto-blipping is turned on with Sports Plus or more), Boxster's echo of every downshiftBuon, Buon"Because the roar is too pleasant, be sure to run in sports plus mode on winding and highways.
When I didn't know much about Porsche,Whether you wear a sports chrono package or not, it doesn't matter. It's too expensiveBut now I'm glad my husband kept it on.
With this sports chrono package, even amateurs like me,You can drive even more with the performance of Porsche, and you can feel the wonder of Porsche's driving more.
When I joined Porsche's driving school, I entered the program in Sport Plus mode all the time, but there were many surprising scenes, such as "Even if you run slalom at such a high speed, you can turn so much!"
Sports chrono package my husband thinks
And regarding this sports chrono package, my husband said,If you buy a Porsche, be sure to put it on. There is no alternative!"When I asked him again about the reason, he said like this.
This is the value of each person,I do not see Porsche as a "luxury car", but as a "high performance car".So, even though there is a mode that can bring out the performance of 100%, I don't want to seal it and ride it.
When. Indeed, it is a high-performance car. My husband continued
Sports and sports plus are quite different, depending on the model.For example, in the case of Boxster GTS, it feels like "Sport plus increased exercise performance by about 10%." I don't feel like riding it without enjoying it. So I definitely want a sports chrono package.
By the way, I don't care if you have a stopwatch.
When. `` Our home is a family that values running, such as running on a mountain path or a circuit, running a long distance on a highway, so after all sports sports chrono package is indispensable ''
Sayana. But I don't fly that much, and I run mostly in the cityFunction not required at all for those who are riding Porsche as `` luxury car ''I think.
Also, Porsche's options are not considered much for resale, but the price is quite different if there is no sports chrono package. In that senseEven if you pay the option fee, there is little real lossI think
It was that. I would also like to ask my husband for opinions on other options such as PDCC and rear axle steering.
