At least someone is listening at Porsche.

911R owners will probably get hit the hardest, other than maybe regular 991 GT3 owners.

One can only hope Porsche is as bright as Chevy and lets you turn that on and off at will. The F8x M3 setup is hilariously bad.

My car has it, only when in sport plus mode but can not turn it off in that mode. Got to admit it is kind of fun to have it as option, sounds amazing with PSE

Much like DCT/PDK, I don't care if it is an option, but I want to be able to opt out without other features being turned on/off.

So far the C7 I drove has one of the best implementations. Push a button to turn it on if you desire, push the button again to make it go away. I don't want it ever, but if it's something we have to have these days...
