    Sport mode without Sport Chrono (Tequipment)

    Anyone else get an e-mailshot similar to this?

    Basically seems they are offering a retro-fit, putting the buttons on for activating sport mode to cars without Sport Chrono being specced.

    Enhance the performance of your Porsche at the touch of a button

    The new Sport mode Tequipment packages, which are available to retro fit on sports cars without the Sport Chrono Package, activate Porsche control systems to intentionally shift towards greater agility and driving performance.

    With the ‘Sport’ mode selected, Porsche Stability Management (PSM) interventions take place later than in ‘normal’ mode allowing you to manoeuvre the car with greater agility at its performance limits. For Porsche models equipped with Porsche Doppelkupplung (PDK), the ‘Sport Plus’ mode activates a launch control function ensuring maximum acceleration.

    Both functions involve remapping the engine management software to increase the torque and performance, however, since these have been exclusively designed and tested by the Porsche engineers at Weissach, your Porsche warranty remains completely unchanged with the fitment of Sport mode or Sport Plus mode at our Porsche Centre.
     

    SPORT mode SPORT mode (manual and PDK vehicles)

    Activated using the additional SPORT button on the centre console, Sport mode selects a sportier configuration to the throttle response whilst adjusting the rev limiter to a higher setting. At the same time PASM (Porsche Active Suspension Management) offers a harder damper setting and more direct steering that gives better road holding. In conjunction with PCM (Porsche Communication Management), the Sport mode function also includes personal memory for a light, wiper, air conditioning and door lock settings.
    £695 (inc. VAT and fitment).

    SPORT PLUS button SPORT PLUS mode (PDK vehicles only)

    In conjunction with PDK, the additional SPORT PLUS button on the centre console activates the ‘Launch Control’ function (racing start), which ensures you achieve the fastest possible rate of acceleration from a standing start.
    £899* (inc. VAT and fitment).

    *911 (Type 997) Turbo model price on request.

    Old news...we had this in a thread a couple of months ago but yes, this is basically what it does...retrofitting sport mode.

    Re: Sport mode without Sport Chrono (Tequipment)

    I just got this last week from my OPC. They have it as a 'News' item from the beginning of March I think.

    I had a quick look but couldn't see any recent posts ... been a bit busy to be on the boards much recently.

    I didn't realise it was THAT old news! Smiley


    Re: Sport mode without Sport Chrono (Tequipment)

    Good for those who don't like the dashboard "clock".

    Order without SC and after delivery retrofit as above.

    Re: Sport mode without Sport Chrono (Tequipment)

    Must have missed the previous post about it as well, really like the idea to have the Sport option without the silly wart. On top of that, it makes quite a few 2nd hand models look very attractive as I would never buy a PDK model without it.

    Even the price sounds "somewhat" reasonable although you pay more to get rid of the stopwatch.

    I didn't realise it increaed torque on the naturally aspirated models

    Claiming that "torque is increased" is not necessarily the same thing as saying that maximum torque is raised.

    I never understood why people would order a modern Porsche without Sport Chrono. Especially on the Turbo models but also on the NA models, Sport Chrono is always a plus. Highly recommended(I still don't like the "wart" though... Smiley).

    Agreed on both counts.  But I still didn't realise that the engine mapping was changed to provide an increase in torque (I'm guessing in the mid-range, well below the maximum) with the NA engines.  And the relaxed PSM settings in Sport Mode are fantastic

     The "wart" is enough to kill it for me.  I wouldn't order it just for that reason.
