Have just got my new car today 991.1 PDK with sports plus & paddles & wondered how does sport plus work, is it suitable for street use as it seems to change up down very abruptly, compared with the other modes, having just come from a manual it seems like it wants to rev the nuts off it before it changes.

Is this ok, purely a manual paddle race mode or can I just open it up & wait for it to change up, as from low speeds I daren't wait until it changes up its revving so high that I have hit the paddles to change up Question

At the moment I don't think I'm driving it right, can anybody explain how they the 3 modes are supposed to work. Question
Thanks

Sport and sport plus can work in either manual or auto.

Sport mode raises the threshold for revs a bit higher than normal (in auto) makes the throttle a little more responsive and shifts a little faster.

Sport plus keeps the revs at roughly 4k-7k in auto (always in the powerband) makes the gearshifts the fastest and hardest they can be. The throttle mapping is set to its most aggressive.

Most people don't use sport plus in auto unless on track as you noticed it keeps the revs very high which is ok just not suited to everyday driving. Perfectly fine if you giving it the beans!

Personally I like sport plus in manual so you get the crisp hard shifts and eager throttle but can drive it in a more sedate rev range.

Sport plus also lets you enable launch control.

Edit. Just in case it wasn't clear in my last post unless in manual the car will change gear on its own but the shift point will change higher up the rev range depending on sport or sport plus. You can still use the paddles in auto but after a few seconds the car will resume auto shifting.

In manual you have to use the paddles the car will not shift itself in any mode.

Perfectly normal. Sports plus is there to make it sound like a 17 year old driving a manual for the first time Floor

I think it was covered on here before but it might have been in 997 section.

Sports Plus ain’t really useable about town as it’s a bit all or nothing for slower speeds. It does come into its own when pushing on or at a track. Thumb

I think the consensus for daily/town use was to put it in sports then pasm button to Normal which loosen the suspension a bit, then auto stop off then noisy exhaust on. For weekends same procedure but in sports plus and get out of town Thumb
suspension in sport is only really for good road surfaces or track. But a DSC module improves this apparently.

Enjoy the new ride thumbsup

Takes some getting used to..... Remember it’s not going to over Rev in auto, even though it sounds like it! Grin

I think Harry put it perfectly that last year was a fleet of rather nice 997's and this year everyone's on the move to 991's, or in his case, a GT4. Congrats on the new car, but Useless

It’s more accurate to say PDK cars will only show overrevs in range 1 and 2.

That's a good question, one I ask myself on a daily basis. It's starts at the first 981 Boxster to go under £20k after Zingari's observations late last year, the scope creep starts, before you know it I'm at £150k, completely justified. Then it goes back to the 981 and it starts all again Grin

Great choice in the best colour (though I am biased)

Sport is my default mode, with the exhaust off most of the time so not to draw too much attention!

Give it a few decent runs out and you’ll know the best settings for you.

Here’s one of mine after it had been detailed.

Thumb Nice. It’s strange with 991’s, as poacher turned gamekeeper, I never thought I’d prefer them over a 997, now it’s a no-brainier, even prefer the shape now with the lower and wider stance, then there’s the performance and the sound, crazy mpg and cheap tax.

The list goes on, is the 991 becoming the new 997, this would explain the current bouyant prices, joking aside they have risen slightly since I bought mine last year worship [/b]

That looks fab! I think one of the original brochures showed them in red or yellow.
Thanks for the advice from all, I am trying out a few settings sussing it out now was just a bit odd jumping from a manual 997, I cant belive how blisteringly quick they are, starting to love it already.
