"Porsche tiptronic system" automatic gearbox

Four or six speed automatic gearbox which offers a choice between the comfort of fully automatic operation, enhanced by sport and snow programmes, or manual gear changing.

Two driving modes are provided:

- automatic operation for electronic management of the gears by the gearbox, with a sport programme to give a more dynamic driving style and a snow programme for improved driving in conditions of poor grip.

- manual operation for sequential changing of the gears by the driver.
