We've been asked this question a number of times and have done our best to explain it on a case by case basis. Now, however, Porsche has release the video below that does a reasonable job of showcasing the functionality and operations of the engine stop/start feature. The best thing I can say about the stop/start feature is that at least you can turn it off. Maybe in time I'll get used to it, but for now I find it distracting. I'm also curious what, if any, additional strain it puts on the starter motor? As always, if the video below doesn't appear in your email, simply click on "Porsche Engine Auto Stop/Start Feature" and you can watch it directly on our site.
