Automatic headlights are a comfort function. Your Porsche’s driving lights (dipped beam) are switched on and off automatically depending on the ambient brightness.
The automatic headlights also control the daytime driving lights, the Automatic Coming Home lights and the dynamic cornering light.
The automatic headlights are activated when the light switch is set to position .
Despite possible support by automatic headlights, it is the responsibility of the driver to switch on the driving lights using the conventional light switch in accordance with the relevant national regulations.
