Porsche Active Suspension Management (PASM)

PASM makes two running-gear setups available to the driver: "Normal" and "Sport".

The selection is made via a button on the center console.

In Normal mode the running gear is in a comfortable setup.

Sport mode offers very sporty shock absorber tuning.

The variable suspension system selects the appropriate damping level for each wheel according to the situation and driving conditions.

Example: If the vehicle is driven in a very sporty manner in Normal mode, PASM automatically adapts the shock-absorber behavior to the driving situation accordingly.

Switching on PASM Sport mode

  • Press PASM button in the center console.
    When PASM Sport mode is switched on, the light-emitting diode in the button is lit up and a message is shown on the on-board computer.

Switching off PASM Sport mode

  • Press PASM button in the center console.
    The light-emitting diode in the button goes out and the on-board computer displays a message.

After the ignition is switched off, PASM is automatically reset to Normal mode.
