Porsche 911 Ever Smarter Active Suspension Management (PASM)

Porsche 911 | Braman Porsche

The Porsche 911­ is a high performance sports car that has quite a following, and for good reason. Since its debut in 1963, it has come a long way in development and technical design. The new models come equipped with Porsche Active Suspension Management, which makes the ride more comfortable, luxurious than ever.

While Porsches have come with PASM since the 2005 Carrera, it is now Ever Smarter with more advanced technology. Simply put, the the PASM adjusts ride quality based on conditions and your unique driving style. The electronic damping control system continually manages the damping force on each individual wheel for a smoother ride.

Porsche 911 models include sensors that monitor the direction, speed, and acceleration of the vehicle. Sensors collect data and send it to the control unit. This adjusts the Porsche to Normal Mode, which rides on softer shocks, or Sport Mode, which rides on firmer shocks for added stability.  This change reflects your mood– when your terrain is more adventurous, Sports Mode makes the ride more controlled and, naturally, sportier. This data also controls the strategic braking that ensures precision.

Additionally, the next time you turn a sharp corner, know that the system controls for lateral stability– making the quick split-second decision to turn left or right safer and smoother. Adaptive air suspension allows for a sportier feel for each terrain on which you may drive. This ensures even driving conditions no matter what the external conditions are.  And, with anti-slip regulation, you will never thinking twice about an impromptu journey. Think more agile, more comfortable, more you.
If you are shopping around for a Porsche and would like to test drive to see what the Ever Smarter PASM has to offer, Braman Porsche­ has multiple models for you to explore.

2014 Porsche 911 Carrera 4S

 

2014 is here and so is the new lineup of stunning and – in some instances – breakthrough Porsche vehicles. The 2014 Porsche 911 Carrera 4S is more than ready to take on the road and give you the ride of your life. Hop in yourself or bring a friend along for the ride, but no matter what, you’re bound to have a great time.

 

The interior might feel just a little bit like heaven with the flawless leather designs, metallic inlays, and color options. From powerful platinum gray to soft luxor beige, there’s something to suit everyone’s taste. Each instrument is carefully crafted to ensure maximum comfort and enjoyment throughout the ride—and indeed throughout all the years of the Porsche’s life.

 

There are plenty of delights awaiting the owner of a 2014 Porsche 911 Carrera 4S as well. The Burmester high-end surround-sound system means music not isn’t so much something to listen to as it is an experience to immerse yourself in. Kick back with the sun roof, power seats, and Porsche Communication Management so you always know where you’re going.

 

Of course, it wouldn’t be the Porsche it is now without the rev of the engine and power of the direct fuel injection system. Zooming out from 0-60 happens in just 4.3 seconds, with a maximum power output of 400 hp at 7400 rpm. Opt for the manual or PDK possibilities. City driving earns at least 19 mpg with the PDK (18 with manual), and both give you 26 mpg on the highway. Porsche Dynamic Chassis Control (PDCC) gives you more stability and control over your 2014 Porsche 911 Carrera 4S than ever for a smoother ride whether you’re taking sharp corners or just speeding over the road.

 

The 911 is still, at heart, a sports car. The difference today is that it’s smarter than ever in its design, craftsmanship, safety, and everything that makes it a Porsche.
