    Porsche software kit that adds a new dimension to your Porsche.  By pressing a dash-mounted "SPORT" switch, you can chose between a stock mode and a Sport Mode with improved performance dynamics.   

    Benefits of Sport Mode activation:

  • Sporty tuning of engine Motronic software, PASM, PSM, Tiptronic Transmission (if applicable), all-wheel-drive system (if applicable).
  • For vehicles with factory Sport Exhaust, the new Sport button would control exhaust settings.
  • For vehicles with PCM, new personalized settings can now be controlled. Including memory for lights, wiper, climate control, & door lock settings.
  • For 2009-2012 vehicles with PDK, you get a Sport Plus button with Launch Control and Race Track Shift Strategy. For base model Cayman & Boxster models, launch control is not included.
  • For Turbo models (2006-2009), Overboost is also added for additional acceleration. NOT compatible with 2010-12 Turbo models.
  • When the Sport button on the center console is selected, the engine management system enhances the engine response. A modified throttle map relates the pedal angle in the footwell to a much wider angle of opening on the throttle valve. Throttle response is significantly more immediate, and, in the higher gears, a hard rev-limiter helps protect the engine under acceleration.

    Vehicles with the optional Porsche Active Suspension Management (PASM) also switches to Sport mode for harder damping and more direct steering, and, therefore, better road holding.  For maximum dexterity, PSM can be set to standby while the car is still in Sport mode. For safety, it is set to intervene automatically only when ABS assistance is required on both the front wheels. 

    For Tiptronic or PDK transmissions, gearshift points are delayed until the upper rev range. The shift times are shorter, the gear changes sportier. At low rates of deceleration, even with high engine speeds, the system initiates a swifter brake-induced downshift. In manual mode, gear changes are faster and more dynamic. In Sport mode, the trigger threshold for PSM is raised for increased longitudinal and lateral dynamics. Agility is enhanced under braking for corners with PSM, enabling greater handling response under braking and exit acceleration, especially at low speeds.

    Fitment: 2005-2012 Carrera, Cayman, & Boxster, and 2006-2009 Turbo models without Sport Chrono or Sport Chrono Plus.

    Note:  Professional installation required by an authorized Porsche dealer, estimated installation time is 2-3 hours.  Make sure your VIN number is 100% accurate (if it's wrong, you've wasted your money). This kit is not returnable under any circumstance. Includes software and a new dash switch, installation guide is included. Please contact us if you have any questions.

    Had this upgrade installed on my 2011 base Cayman with PDK (no PASM). Purchased from Suncoast to avoid sales tax and had my local Porsche shop (Rector) do the install ($315). My Cayman now drives like a different car. Sport mode is totally exhilarating - it really ought to come standard with PDK. I rarely use the Sport Plus as I don’t autocross. I can’t think of any better upgrade that you could install for under $1,500. Do yourself a favor and order it now!

    This is the way a 911 was meant to drive. If you have a PDK and are considering this, don't hesitate any longer. Sport mode has made my 997.2 a different car. One caveat: make sure your dealer knows how to find the activation code in PWIS. Whem my (inexperienced) dealer didn't, Suncoast stepped in and told them how to do the install.

    A "best bang for the buck" mod.

    I have had this product in my 2.9 Cayman and now in my 3.4 Cayman S (both 987.2). Both vehicles have 6 speed manuals and neither one has PASM or sport exhaust. In the 2.9 it made the vehicle a much better daily driver. The throttle response is more aggressive and the car allows you to explore its abilities to a greater extent. I believe Porsche also gives you a couple hundred more rpm's to play with, albeit with a more aggressive limiter. In the 3.4, I honestly use it with less frequency as the additional torque found in the CS makes it less necessary during daily driving. That being said, when I go out with my Cars & Coffee buddies, it is nice to know that with a push of a button I can keep up with much more powerful vehicles on backroads. Now, I am not saying it adds any additional power, but it does alter the way that power is delivered resulting in the car doing more with less.

    My exspectations were low because my Cayman S has a manual transmission and no PASM but the Sport Mode adds another level of aggresion to the throttle response and seems to hold the revs while shifting. Sport Mode provides a lot of fun at the push of a button and is a good value, it doesn't get any better then that!
