Porsche Dynamic Light System (PDLS)
Dynamic cornering light
Above a speed of approx. 8 km/h (5 mph), the low beam light is swiveled in the direction of the curve to illuminate the road more clearly, depending on the speed of the vehicle and the extent to which the steering wheel is turned.
In the event of a fault in the dynamic cornering light, the PDLS warning light in the instrument panel starts flashing.
Motorway function in daylight
The driving light is switched on automatically at vehicle speeds of more than approx. 90 mph (140 km/h) in daylight conditions and when daytime driving lights are deactivated.
If you are traveling at a speed of less than approx. 40 mph (65 km/h), the driving light is switched off after a delay of approx. 4 minutes, if the external lighting conditions permit.
Motorway function in darkness
The distribution characteristics of the driving light change when driving in darkness at vehicle speeds above approx. 80 mph (130 km/h).
The light beam becomes longer and the field of vision increases.
The distribution characteristics of the driving light change when the rear fog light is switched on at vehicle speeds below approx. 43 mph (70 km/h).
The light beam becomes wider and reduces glare.
The lighting is automatically adjusted to the ambient brightness via light sensors.
In addition, when the vehicle lighting is switched on, the instrument and switch brightness can be adjusted manually.
Adjusting the brightness while driving
Adjusting the brightness while driving may cause you to lose control of the vehicle.
