My Panamera Turbo displayed a “chassis system failure” message last night. Today the message is gone.  It has 6,000 miles but is a 2010 so it hasn’t been used much. A few days before the message displayed I noticed there is a “bump” or shutter when turning the wheel tight at low speeds. It almost feels like I’m going over a pot hole. I’m wondering if anyone has any idea of what the issue could be. I know the suspension is pretty complex. If anyone has an idea of what the problem is or where I should start looking for the source I’d appreciate the advice. Thanks!

My guess, without diagnostics, you may have air shocks leaking air and they do not get raised high enough to tell car it is at proper level for driving.

Regardless of mileage, rubber starts leaking.  

Put your car into normal mode, and see if it appears low (front and/or back wheels very close to well edges).  If yes, definitely shocks.

You will need to open hood,  unscrew the triangle covers that cover shock tops on each side, use soapy water to find if top of shocks/connectors are leaking air.  Bubbles will tell you they are.

I have DIY threads on air suspension which you should find and read to help understand.

Also, if this is not air shock related, it may be PDCC related.  Do you have messages on cluster with more detail?

Hope this gives you starting point.  Thanks.
