  • You didn't have launch control. The manual clearly says that you must be in Sport+ and the revs will climb to 5,000 RPMs and hold and Launch Control Activated will be displayed. I'm guessing you just hit the brake override rev limiter, which explains why the launch was weak and why there was no pulling against the brakes.

    According to Porsche's web site you have to have the Sport Chrono Package to have Sport+ and available Launch Control and that'll cost an extra $1,290

    Surprising the manual (at least the part we can read here) makes no mention of the Sport Chrono Package requirement for using Launch Control. Less surprising that "race circuits" are referred to: it's a Porsche, after all!

    13.5 mpg! That would mean you're having a lot of fun but 15 mph sounds more like stop-and-go.
