Default 4wheel steering for TTS

When did Porsche add 4 wheel steering, what engages it and at what speed does it kick in. Can you really feel it. Thanks

It operates at all speeds and you can feel it. It's amazing.

This pretty much sums it up I think........

"The 991 Turbo has the rear axle steering. The first Porsche to have the rear axle steering was the 991 GT3. The system was designed for the 991 Turbo in first place, but as the last moment decision it was also incoroprated into the GT3 that was launched before the Turbo. At speeds of up to 50 kmh / 31 mph, the system steers the rear wheels into the opposite direction of the front wheels simplifying manouvering and parking. Between 50-80 kmh / 31-50 mph, the rear wheels are not steered and at speeds above 80 kmh / 50 mph, the system steers the rear wheels parallel to the front wheels, so the car can easily change lane going sideways."

I think it's amazing as well. It's pretty noticeable when you are hugging turns at faster speeds. I wouldn't get a 911 without it.
