Video: Porsche Sport Driving School in Leipzig, …You win races in your head.

Date: 15.08.–16.08.2015

at Porsche in Leipzig

our FIA-certified on-road circuit,

which is modelled on famous sections from racetracks around the world.

0857

Master RSR

Have you already developed excellent vehicle control at the Porsche Sport Driving School? Do you now feel confident on the racetrack? Are you experienced in the use of lateral and longitudinal acceleration in our road-going cars? Then you are ready for the next challenge.

0618

You can now look forward to taking the next step towards the world of motorsport hand in hand with the Porsche Sport Driving School. Our Master RSR training focuses on how to drive safely in Porsche race cars. The number of participants is limited exclusively to just 12 people.

Training takes place in the six Porsche 991 GT3 Cup vehicles provided – each one with the individual support of a Porsche instructor experienced in racing and a factory-trained Porsche mechanic.

1115

Over the course of the two training days, your instructor and a Porsche works driver will teach you the basic techniques of driving Porsche race cars. After you have become acquainted with the vehicle controls and your new surroundings, you will begin with exercises on effective braking – with or without ABS. Your instructor will help you to find the optimum brake balance. Other aspects covered on the course include how to shift gear correctly and identify the racing line. Particular emphasis is placed on optimum, yet steady acceleration out of bends – without traction control – and controlling and minimising unwanted load-changing reactions – without PSM.

Special attention is also given to safe overtaking manoeuvres and performing ‘standing’ and ‘flying’ starts. When driving laps, you should be able to find the optimum line over the entire course. In addition to the 991 GT3 Cup vehicles, participants are also provided with the latest generation 911 GT3 or 911 GT3 RS models for individual warm-up exercises.

0288

One-to-one feedback on the development of your driving skills is provided by your Porsche instructor – for this, your performance is recorded during the various stints on the circuit using assessment drives or video and data analysis. Naturally, slick tyres are used to ensure optimum performance. Rain tyres may also be used, depending on the weather. In addition to developing your driving skills, we also focus on providing you with detailed information about the vehicle, as well as the equipment required during circuit driving.

Video: Porsche Sport Driving School, Hone your skills at the ‘Green Hell’ Nürburgring

Date: 05.08.–06.08.2015

at the Nürburgring, Nordschleife

a superlative racing venue, guaranteeing maximum motoring pleasure.

Nu¦êrburgring_HT_fu¦êr Monitor 16-9-5

Training Level: Master. Two day course for advanced participants.

Prior training level: Performance

Training content:

  • Following the racing line quickly and independently

  • Developing alternative racing lines

  • Individual laps with one-to-one coaching

  • Influence of chassis and tyres on road-going vehicles

  • Overtaking safely on the circuit

Included in the programme: a Porsche works driver, and our instructors, all of whom are experienced in racing. Participation in high-performance vehicles is not essential, but highly recommended.

You are already an accomplished driver, so we don’t need to cover the basics. Instead, we can focus on showing you how to drive more independently and quickly find your way around the track without the aid of cones and instructors. Naturally, this also includes identifying and following the racing line. You’ll also discover how this can be developed still further.

PSDS_2775

You’ll also have plenty of time out on the track to put what you’ve learned into practice and continue to improve your skills – you’ll even receive one-to-one guidance on some laps of the circuit.

In addition, a workshop covering both theoretical and practical aspects will teach you all you need to know about the chassis and tyres to enable you to transfer the power of your vehicle to the road in the most efficient way.

Stuttgart. Porsche is one of the first car makers in the world to offer the opportunity to connect its vehicles with the Apple Watch.

As a result, drivers can now access Porsche Car Connect functions even more conveniently, without having to reach for their iPhones.

However, the Apple smartphone still continues to manage communication with the vehicle and integrates the Apple Watch as an additional display and control element.

The Apple Watch provides information on the vehicle status and allows certain vehicle functions to be monitored and controlled by tap and gesture input.

The “remote” display, for instance, visualises whether windows, doors, boot lid and sunroof are closed; the vehicle can also be locked if necessary by pressure of the finger (“Force Touch” function).

The “Carfinder” function shows the location of the car, while the navigation function guides the driver to the position of the vehicle if required. As soon as drivers are in the vicinity of their Porsche, they can easily identify it on a full parking lot or in a multi-storey car park with the functions to sound the horn and flash the lights.

The key comfort functions of the plug-in models can also be monitored and controlled via the Apple Watch. A brief glance at the wrist is all it takes to check charging status, range and residual charging time. In the “Climate” menu, drivers can activate the preconditioning function with one tap of a finger.
