Porsche Active Suspension Management (PASM)
PASM makes two running-gear setups available to the driver: "Normal" and "Sport".
The selection is made via a button on the center console.
In Normal mode the running gear is in a comfortable setup.
Sport mode offers very sporty shock absorber tuning.
The variable suspension system selects the appropriate damping level for each wheel according to the situation and driving conditions.
If the vehicle is driven in a very sporty manner in Normal mode, PASM automatically adapts the shock-absorber behavior to the driving situation accordingly.
Switching on PASM Sport mode
Switching off PASM Sport mode
After the ignition is switched off, PASM is automatically reset to Normal mode.
Retractable Spoiler (not on Boxster Spyder)
The rear spoiler improves driving stability, especially at higher speeds.
Display of the warning message "Failure spoiler control" indicates failure of the retractable rear spoiler.
Driving stability will be adversely affected by increased rear axle lift, especially at higher speeds.
When extending or retracting the rear spoiler manually when the vehicle is stationary, parts of the body can get trapped between the moving spoiler and fixed vehicle parts.
Risk of damage from pushing the vehicle by the rear spoiler.
