The chassis and suspension of the Porsche Panamera is not a compromise between sporting performance and superior comfort, but rather a combination of the two. In its basic setting it offers a very high standard of driving comfort. But then, at the touch of a button on the active PASM damper system, it turns into a thoroughbred sports suspension.
As another highlight of the Porsche Panamera is the adaptive air suspension with its capability for extra volume whenever required - an absolute innovation in automotive technology - featured as standard on the Turbo and an option on the other models, offers an even greater variation of sporting and comfort features.
The driving dynamics and motoring comfort may be enhanced additionally on all models by active PDCC stability control available in combination with a fully controlled limited slip differential on the rear axle.
Through the Sport Plus button, the optional Sports Chrono Package enables the driver at the touch of a button to choose the uncompromising high-performance set-up of all drive-train and suspension systems including Porsche Traction Management (PTM) with its fully-controlled all-wheel drive. PTM comes as standard on both the Porsche Panamera 4S and the Panamera Turbo.Published 18 March 2009
