Luxury shows up in the details

Today’s automakers are looking for sustainable solutions for lightweight vehicles that also fulfill aesthetic requirements: This is also valid for the perfectionists at Porsche who pay attention to even the smallest details.

When it came to creating an innovative stabilizer for the new Porsche Panamera, ContiTech Vibration Control, internationally successful manufacturer of engine mounts for the automotive industry, and BASF joined forces.
The result is a high-performance integrated component made of a high-strength polyamide from the Ultramid® CR family and a functionally optimized NR+ natural rubber mixture. It reliably withstands engine torques up to 650 Nm while providing very good sound absorption and a secure mounting for the engine.
Compared to a metal component with comparable functionality, the sports car manufacturer is able to achieve weight savings of 35 percent. This will translate into fuel savings and thus greenhouse gas emission savings.
