I have a 2004 S and I'm considering getting something newer. Does anyone know what year Porsche introduced cruise with stop and go function? I'm looking for something that can come to a complete stop in traffic and then accelerate again without any interaction from me. It doesn't need to steer as I know that's a much more recent feature. Also if you can let me know what it's called so I can put that into my search when looking for used models. 

 

Thanks!

Dan

I think you’re looking for Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC). Don’t know when it first came out, but it’s on my 2011 Turbo. If it brakes the vehicle to a complete stop, it requires you to hit the resume switch in order to accelerate again, other than that it works like you’d expect.

Yes-ish, it works in slow and go traffic. It works pretty well if you never come to a complete stop--if you do, you will have to hit resume to get the car to continue.

Overall, I'm not a big fan of the system (although this could be because I'm not a big fan of the push towards automation of street vehicles--especially ones that are so good to drive). My biggest complaint is that in traffic it is not aggressive enough when re-accelerating (car ahead moves out of the way or picks up speed quickly), which invariably leaves enough gap for another vehicle to cut in front and actually push you to the rear of the pack! For me, it's best use is on the long single file construction lane that you can't pass or be passed on, it will keep perfect trailing distance and keep you from rear-ending the vehicle ahead as you fall asleep.
