    Sports Chrono

    I just purchased a new 2009 911 Carrera S, 6 speed tranny with the sports chrono package.  is this used for anything other than a stopwatch/timer?

    Re: Sports Chrono

    The Sports Chrono is actually 2 things - Sports and Chrono. 

    The Sports component is the Sports button on the dash.  For a manual transmission, when the button is pressed, it changes the PASM (if present) setting to firm, and changes the throttle map. i.e. if you depress the gas pedal say 50%, the actual throttle applied is 70%.  So the car feels faster than it actually is.  But for a PDK, it is far more useful, and it comes with 2 buttons, Sport and Sport Plus.  In Sport mode in a PDK car, the gears change up higher in the rev band, and the speed of shifting gears also increases.  In Sport Plus mode, it goes berserk, and keeps the revs high as when you're on a track, and makes the 7th gear unavailable.  It also allows you to activate Launch Control, which brings down the 0-60 time to a claimed 4.3 secs.  Also, for the Turbos, the Sports button gives you burts of overboost, which really makes the car faster.

    The Chrono part is the stopwatch, activated through the top left stalk, and also there is a 'sports display' which on the PCM can theoretically record your laps on the track and then allow you to analyse your data graphically.  But in actual practice, it is a pain to use on track and you can never be 100% accurate.

    For a manual tranny and normally aspirated cars like ours, IMHO the Sports Chrono package is a bit gimmicky, and I hardly used it in my manual Boxster.

    But for the PDK, it suddenly becomes the most important option to tick when speccing the car!

    A lot of us would LOVE it if Porsche could have separated the options of Sport and Chrono, as I for one think the chrono part is useless, and the 'wart' on the dashboard ruins the lines of the interior. 

    Hope this helps!
