Default PASM button missing in GT3

Has anyone had a GT3 with a missing PASM button?

That photo is not from a GT3. There is a wing/spoiler up and down button.

And, FYI all Carrera models have PASM and they all should have that button.

OP is missing the PASM button which has an icon of a damper in his GT3 Touring.

The buttons labeled “Sport” activates PDK Sport mode.

Does OP or someone on this forum have the car in question with the PASM button? If not who cares? It’s likely NOT a GT3 (Touring or otherwise), because all 991 GT3’s have the PASM suspension button.

The Sport button only affects the transmission. On PDK cars it engages PDK Sport mode, and on manual cars it just engages auto rev matching on downshifts (nothing else).

Are the buttons the same with or without Sport Chrono, or does that just add a fancy dash clock?

Mine w/ dash clock:

LOL. Okay, I'll bite.

No, never heard of a 991 GT3 without a PASM button. It would be real interesting if there is indeed one without a PASM button.

No, I was not turning this into a wing vs non-wing thread. You did.

You wrote "not your picture". So, whose is it, and from what car?

The photo I posted is from a customer who recently purchased a GT3 Touring from my SA. I was curious to see if anyone else has a GT3 with a missing PASM button. And, as I stated above, all Carrera models have PASM and thus should come with that button as well.

the wrong switch panel has been installed before, always strange this gets by the factory QA. Dealer should replace with a new switch panel that is configured correctly.

Hello
When the button is pushed and the light is on does that mean that the suspension is active or is it the other way around.

Hardly makes a difference in how it feels anyway so maybe they just said f-it, they won't notice the difference.
