Does Sport button enhance trottle response much?

Recommended Posts

Hi

I have a 2010 manual 987-2 with the 3,4L direct injection engine and electronic throttle.

I find the throttle response sluggish (for a sports car). 

That "Sport" button can be retrofitted .... to access a more aggressive throttle map than the standard maps. 

 

Question to you guys who have that Sport button on 987-2 ... how to you perceive the impact of pressing the button? "Big" or "small" difference?

Does it change response only when driving, or also when standing still (and revving from idle?)

Does Sport button even exist for a manual transmission car?  On PDK cars it is - and SPORT is great, SPORT-PLUS is AMAZING. Totally changes the behavior of the car - it not only changes throttle response (which could be done with a "Booster" for a lot less $$$), it changes the shifting of the PDK.   "SPORT" setting with my Sprint Booster set to 2 makes for a really responsive lively car, responds with enthusiasm to every input I give it.

 

Tonight I went for a top-down ride (50F, had on earmuffs and the heated seat) and I finally tried SPORT PLUS. I didn't change the settings on the Sprint BOOSTER - still set at "2"..  the combination is pretty much magic on a nice twisty road with good pavement, decent sight-lines, and one I know like the back of my hand.  The transmission kept the engine between 4K and about 7.2K, which sounds amazing with the top down and a Fister exhaust. It also feels amazing, very responsive, would go wherever I looked without a second thought and kept asking for MORE...   when I went past the local LEO station at a bit less than 2x the speed limit, I used the wheel-buttons to upshift to 3rd (it was still in 2nd). It responded instantly, as I slowed to almost legal cruising speed it wanted to go back to 2nd so I had to take it out of PLUS mode and just be happy with SPORT.  This could be addicting. 

 

It really had me grinning, and it's been a while since a car inspired that in me - it usually takes a motorcycle to do that.

 

So the question is - is there a sport button for manual shift, and if so - what does it change?  And if so - is there a sport-plus?  Sport Plus and PDK let you do things like launches.. I can't see where that would do anything on a manual transmission car except perhaps speed up the throttle response.
