Porsche Sport Chrono is one of the most popular upgrades for new Porsche vehicles and it’s easy to see why. Old Porsche models were also available with the Sport Chrono SC package to enhance this feature. Its features increase a model’s base performance and speed in many exciting ways. By installing this pack, you’ll get features like Launch Control and SPORT Response, making for a truly memorable drive through Saratoga or Menlo Park.
What Does the Porsche Sport Chrono Package Include?
The Porsche Sport Chrono Package offers the following features:
- Driver-Selectable Driving Modes: The steering wheel inside a model with Sport Chrono includes a switch that allows the driver to change the performance profile of their vehicle as they cruise through Milpitas. The switch offers four modes: Normal, SPORT, SPORT PLUS, and Individual.
- Launch Control: Paired with the Porsche Doppelkupplung (PDK) transmission, Sport Chrono integrates Launch Control, which gives the vehicle a race-start function.
- Motorsports-Inspired Gear Shifting: Sport Chrono gives the PDK unique and racing-derived gearshifting strategies for the fastest acceleration possible.
- SPORT Response: New for models like the 718, SPORT Response allows you to press a button in the center of the mode switch. Pressing this button gears the engine and transmission up to release a tremendous amount of power for about 20 seconds, giving you maximum acceleration and responsiveness.
- Interior Upgrades: Models with the Porsche Sport Chrono Package include a few distinctive features inside the cabin, including a dash-mounted stopwatch and PCM upgrades like a performance display.
- Dynamic Transmission Mounts: With Sport Chrono, vibrations and oscillations within the drivetrain are minimized, making it possible for the transmission to change gears almost imperceptibly on Los Gato’s roads.
