Our 987.2 is in for service, and they have given us a 2015 981 as a loaner. I know they went to an electronic parking brake in the 981, but I thought it still had an actuator on the center console - however, neither of us can find any sign of any such button or actuator on this car!

Are we both going blind, or did they do away with any sort of manual actuation in the latest cars, and if so, under what circumstances is it supposed to engage and disengage?

Like chow said, its in front of your left knee. Push to engage, pull(while pushing the brake pedal) to disengage. Alternatively, you can put on your seatbelt and drive away in which case it will disengage itself.

Or maybe it's because you are not being formal enough: "Engagen Sie...". Or maybe it's because you are not being assertive enough to show who is boss through the familiar: "Engagest du...". Or maybe...

Funny... after reading this thread and getting a chuckle out of it... I now kinda want to learn all the voice control commands in German just so I can exclusively talk to my car in German to amuse and confuse my passenger. :D

If you talk to the car in German, it will obey better, not having to internally translate.
