Here is the Official 718 Boxster

Jan 26, 2016 - 5:30 PM - by tonester
The new Porsche 718 Boxster20 years after the first Boxster made its debut, Porsche is restructuring its mid-engine roadsters. The designation for the new generation of models is 718 Boxster and 718 Boxster S.

The two-seat convertibles are now more powerful yet more fuel efficient. With them, Porsche continues the tradition of the four-cylinder flat engines that were used in the Porsche 718 mid-engine sports cars that won numerous races back in the 1950s and 1960s, among them being the legendary Targa Florio and Le Mans.The centrepiece of the new model series is the newly developed four-cylinder flat engine with turbocharging. The 718 Boxster develops 220 kW (300 hp) of power from two litres of engine displacement, while the 718 Boxster S attains 257 kW (350 hp) from 2.5 litres of displacement. In the S-model, Porsche also uses a turbocharger... [Read More]

Cayman Club 2016!

Dec 29, 2015 - 10:43 AM - by K-Man S
After much consideration we have decided to re-ignite the "Cayman Club" from days past. For those who don't recall, this site was originally known as CaymanClub.Net and later morphed into Planet-9.com. For some time we've considered ways in which to bring some of the focus back to various activities that used to happen during the old Cayman Club days. What we've decided to do is form an actual car club. In fact we will be filing for 501(c)(7) status for the club to be a non-profit just like PCA or any other similar car club. The Cayman Club will also be entirely separate from Planet-9.com which means no advertiser support which in turn means we need YOUR support and donations to get the "Club" off the ground. Donate Here! If you donate before Jan 1st you may be able to deduct your donation from your 2015 taxes!

The Cayman Club will be focused on a... [Read More]

Porsche Announces 718 Boxster and Cayman

Dec 10, 2015 - 9:09 AM - by K-Man S
The legendary Porsche 718 is back

Mid-engine Sports Cars have a long tradition at Porsche. Starting with the Porsche 550 Spyder in 1953, a Sports Car that caused a sensation on both the race track and on the road with an empty weight of just around 550 kilograms (1,213 pounds). The Porsche 550 Spyder impressively demonstrated the superiority of the mid-engine concept in combination with a consistent lightweight construction when it crossed the finishing line of the Targa Florio with a lead of almost 15 minutes over the rest of the field in 1956.

The Porsche 718 was the logical development of the mid-engine Sports Car: lightweight, fast, and beautiful. In addition to winning numerous races, it also won the hearts of Porsche enthusiasts and even more those of its drivers. Due to its outstanding power-to-weight ratio, it had a top speed of up to 260 km/h (162 mph) and offered excellent maneuverability. This meant that... [Read More]

Calendar Topic and Holiday Cards - Do you have photos???

Dec 06, 2015 - 8:56 PM - by K-Man S
Remember when we used to do annual calendars of members cars? Well thanks to a recommendation from the Jaguar club we've uncovered a new printing source for very high quality calendars AND holiday cards. According to our printing source they can turn around calendars before Xmas if photos are sent to them by Dec 11th. That's the end of this week! In addition they can also make holiday cards that you can use to send out to friends and family this year, or if you have already sent out cards this year save them until next year. So, in order to try and get enough high quality photos to make a good calendar I'm asking everyone who is interested to upload their best photo of their Porsche or their best photo of their Porsche and themselves if they want to be in the photo too.

718 Responses

Jan 28, 2016 - 10:11 AM - by K-Man S
So Porsche announces the new 718 Boxster details and our members have quite a bit to say about it! If you haven't visited the dedicated 718 forums yet you really should. Topics there are ranging from price guessing to exhaust sounds, to what is up with those new dash vents. As someone who has lived through multiple Porsche model launches and model refreshes for more than a decade online I would have to say that the initial 718 Boxster details have been fairly polarizing. Members have either tended to love it or hate it, with not a lot in between, although I suspect for members who don't really care one way or the other that they are much less likely to post and say just that. Despite predictions of doom and gloom from some... [Read More]
