Doing my homework looking at used Caymans: Is the switch to the lower right of the console the PASM switch?

It's on the very bottom row of switches just above the little cubby in
front of the shift lever.

The graphic looks like a shock absorber. If the light is on, PASM is "on" =
higher damping ratio setting.

If you have also Sport Chrono, turning on SC (the "sport" button) will also
turn on PASM. So if you want SC off but PASM on you push the SC button,
then the PASM button.

To add to the above:

The switch you circled is indeed the PSM switch.

Take another look at your picture. There is another switch in the same row as the circled PSM switch, but on the far left. That switch is for raising the rear spoiler.

The PASM switch, if it were present, would be just to the right of the rear spoiler switch, and it would have a graphic that looks like a shock absorber, at a slight angle.

I have seen several 06 models where the switch next to the spoiler switch is labeled SPORT. Same thing as PASM?

Nope, Sport is Sport Chrono, or SC

Some cars have PASM, some SC, and some both. If the have both, the switches go, from left to right, Spoiler, PASM, Sport.

What if a car has Sport Chrono and next to the Spoiler switch is a switch with a horizontal line icon. Is this the Sport button?

Found the answer. It spells "sport". Dealer photo made it seem like a horizontal line.
