Sport Mode?

Ok, I ask for your forgiveness and understanding in advance because I’m sure the answer to my question is well known to Porsche enthusiast. Yes I did a search of the forum.
I cannot locate a sport mode button. It certainly isn’t where my owners manual says it should be. I have a 2007 Boxster S with a Tiptronic, do all Boxster S have sport mode? And do all Boxster S have a Sports Exhaust System button? Is it I have a basic model without these options?
Thanks in advance for your help!

I don't believe that is correct. Sport Mode was available with Tips before PDK came along, but was an option. You can see the three buttons at the bottom of the console - the third one is 'Sport".

Well bummer, either way I guess I don’t have the option; I don’t have a “Sport” button to the right of the “Rear Spoiler” button.

Don't worry, if you have your heart set on Sport Chrono you can buy the button and settings. Just be ready to fork over $1200 + 3 hrs labor.
