How to turn off ABS?

5734 Views 14 Replies 10 Participants Last post by  jdstein11
I attended a session at Porsche Customer Experience Center Atlanta a couple of years ago in a Boxster S and loved seeing the differences between experiencing track sections with driver aids active and then deactivating them. I now have a 2018 718 Boxster and wanted to try out driving with ABS and other driving controls deactivated during a wet day recently. I tried pressing the ABS button on the console but nothing happened, so I thought I'd reach out to this group.

My car:

- 2018 718 Boxster
- Standard wheel (NOT multi-function)
- NOT using navigation or Porsche Connect

Any help would be greatly appreciated, thanks.

That’s not what I was told at PEC LA. If turn PSM off (press and hold) it’s all the way. You can’t turn it completely off on the non-sports cars (SUVs, Panamera) but I was told you can on the sports cars.
Don't you just love the variety of "correct" answers?--especially by those who should know./forum/images/718forum/smilies/tango_face_sad.png

Here is what the manual has to say (two pages worth!):

...silly me...don't Porsches come with owners manuals anymore?...LOL...but the bigger question is....does anyone read them these days?...I've always considered this a necessity with any new vehicle, as well as being quite enjoyable!...just a thought?
