Powerful lineup of models, highlighting the true nature of sports
The 53 experience vehicles cover various Porsche sports cars with different engine layouts and driving methods. The king of the track 911, the mid-engine sports car 718 Boxster and 718 Cayman, the sports luxury sedan Panamera, and the SUV leader Cayenne all appeared on the stage, presenting the driving pleasure of Porsche in all aspects.
As for the two-door sports car, the classic rear-engined sports car 911 is the absolute king on the track. The 911 Carrera S with rear-wheel drive can create more powerful driving force for straight-line acceleration of the vehicle, and is a powerful tool for master drivers to show their skills on ice. The four-wheel drive version of the 911 Carrera 4S equipped with Porsche Traction Control Management can achieve a more stable grip on ice and make every turn more easily. The mid-mounted rear-drive 718 model has outstanding cornering performance. Not only is the cornering more flexible, but also the dynamics are more stable. On ice and snow tracks, the 718 can more easily achieve lateral drift and draw perfect curves in the boiling snow and fog.
Panamera perfectly combines Porsche’s outstanding sports car performance with the comfort of a luxury sedan, making driving on ice more calm. Compared with the coupe, the longer wheelbase and greater overall weight create greater inertia, which can achieve more shocking tail flick effects. Powerful driving assistance systems enable Panamera to respond to various emergencies freely. For example, with the intelligent Porsche Traction Management (PTM), Panamera can maintain the body stability in time when negative angle drift occurs. The rich comfort configuration also makes the driving of Panamera more comfortable in the extremely cold environment.
Cayenne’s powerful all-terrain performance escorts the desire to break the rules. Thanks to the adaptive air suspension and Porsche Dynamic Chassis Control (PDCC), the Cayenne can handle steep slopes or mixed snow surfaces with ease. Cayenne has achieved a perfect balance between sportiness and comfort, providing drivers with a driving experience like walking on flat ground in the wind and snow. At the same time, Cayenne, as an all-terrain SUV, also assumes the heavy responsibility of a rescue vehicle in Porsche’s driving in the snow.
