2012 All-New Porsche Carrera: Porsche Dynamic Chassis Control (Part 6/12)

PORSCHE Euorpe: Official Press Release

The new Porsche 911 Carrera

World Premiere for Porsche Sports Car: PDCC Active Roll Stabilisation

With Porsche Dynamic Chassis Control redeveloped from the ground up, the 911 Carrera sets new standards for lateral acceleration and handling.

The variable stabiliser system largely resolves the conflicting goals of extreme sportiness with the least possible tendency to roll in dynamic driving situations and a high degree of comfort by essentially decoupling the stabiliser during straight-line driving and reciprocal compression on uneven road surfaces.

The vehicle’s lateral inclination, for example when entering a bend, when cornering and changing lanes at speed is almost completely offset by the PDCC up to the maximum lateral acceleration. Because of the reduced roll angles, the tyres are always in the optimal position relative to the road surface and are able to transmit higher lateral forces. This has the effect of increasing maximum cornering speeds, which in turn ensures faster lap times on racing circuits. The system also affords even more direct steering feedback and greater steering precision. The intelligent control of the PDCC system is also able to exercise individual control over the hydraulic actuators on the front and rear axle stabilisers, depending on the driving situation, influencing self-steering behaviour in the process and consequently improving vehicle stabilisation.
