I can't think of a model where it wasn't defeatable. What are you on about exactly?

But it's not a standalone button in the non-GT cars. To turn it off, you need to also turn off other things. For example, if you want to engage the other parameters set by Sport or Sport Plus, you have to also have the rev match activated. You can't defeat the rev match by itself. I think in all the GT cars, the sport button only activates the rev match so you can activate or deactivate it by itself. But it's bundled with other parameters in all the non-GT cars to my knowledge. Am I wrong about that?

Could be, but what are the other functions that you are forced to deactivate? Possibly throttle map? Anything else? I have 981 Spyder and think Sport Plus button only does rev matching.

Sport mode changes the control system operating point for oil and water temperature. In Sport (and +) mode these temperatures are driven to ~195°F to provide additional 'heat sink' capacity.

This--^ is my beef with turning off Sport modes to deactivate rev-matching.

Throttle mapping is also changed.

And, IIRC, Sport/+ modes alter mappings for suspension, and PSM.

PDK's Sport mode does additional things (which we don't care about in an MT context.)

Have you seen the weird behaviour of the stop light in the daytime? The horizontal bar doesn’t illuminates in the central part! 😟

I don't know what stage of the design they're at with the Turbo models, but that side intake looks pretty poorly matched to the rest of the car.

I'm not too keen on the flying saucer looking rear spoiler,....somehow it just doesn't look like it fits the rest of the car. I'm sure there will be some clean up work done...

The mystery of the third brake light has been unraveled. Apparently the German Air Force was disposing of some old inventory, and Porsche was making a very obvious effort to make these cars cheaply. Serendipity.

Behold - the third brake lights in their previous incarnation. I wonder why they didn’t just have them sticking out of the roof, and be done with it ? You’ve got to fully commit to a bad idea. They went all the way with the Nubbin. Why not make the car look like one of Santa’s reindeer ?

What the hell, it looks burned out? Having already made the bad decision not to illuminate the entire strip, who thought it was a good idea to fade it out in the middle? And why do they still have a job?

Edit: I guess it is burned out, going by the photo in the other thread:

Or there's a multiplexing or rolling-shutter effect at work.
