Taller Center Console and Arm Rest by Exclusive Option

Jul 21, 2016 - 2:04 PM - by K-Man S
Sometimes you see something you like only to have it taken away. Other times you just want to achieve some sort of balance between a bunch of different parts, to combine them into a harmonious whole. Whatever the ultimate reason was, I decided that I was already disappointed in the flat plain alcantara center console arm rest that Porsche provided from the factory. It didn't match what I had seen on a GT4 in Europe during the launch and seemed rather boring when compared to the rest of the deviated stitching interior. Surely there must be an answer...

Porsche could not provide one. You can accept the default console lid or maybe get one with the Porsche crest embossed on it, but still a short one, and still plain alcantara, no leather no stitching and your wallet would take yet another punch from the Porsche options tax man. The answer was to talk to Frank at Exclusive Option ... [Read More]

GT4 AWE Tuning Foiler Install Article

Jul 16, 2016 - 4:49 PM - by K-Man S
As far as modifications go, this one surely has to be one of the easiest to accomplish. I was left with so much extra time on my hands that I decided to shoot some video as well. The process was so short that while I took a picture of the time on my sport chrono clock to show the start time, it was over so fast that I didn't think taking an end time shot was even relevant. Yes, really it's that easy.
So what does this part do? It stops that annoying cavitation effect that you get when you roll only one window down, in this case on a 981 Cayman GT4 but it is applicable to several new Porsches (see AWE's website for a complete list - link below). What happens is that when you roll the window down the pressure differential between the outside air and the inside of the cabin causes a resonance or pulsing of the pressures as they try to equalize that...

XPEL Ultimate Film Install Article

Jul 05, 2016 - 1:00 PM - by K-Man S
I would like to thank our sponsor XPEL for helping to make this article possible. I would also like to thank Chicago Auto Pros who did the installation work shown in these photos. As many of you may know, I've had some form of clear bra on various cars I've owned going clear back to 1998 when I first discovered that a car's paint could be protected with a clear film. I also know that a clear film is not necessarily for everyone, feel free to visit the debates in our forum to read some of the reasons for and against a clear bra. For me the decision was simple. A brand new GT4 that was going to be driven 550+ miles its first time out, why would I want to punish the paint of an instant classic such as the GT4? I didn't want to, plus if this car is going to be visiting the track it is going to need something to keep all that track debris from turning a gorgeous racing yellow into a grey poupon.

Randy Pobst "Marvels" at the TPC Racing GT4

Jun 21, 2016 - 1:21 PM - by TPC Racing
On May 17th, TPC Racing had the pleasure of hosting acclaimed driver Randy Pobst of Motortrend; independent journalist Matt Farah of The Smoking Tire; and automotive editor of Ars Technica, Jonathan Gitlin, at Summit Point Motorsport Park for a private track day.

Before dawn, the TPC Racing crew loaded up a fleet of DSC Sport-equipped cars; including a Porsche Cayman GT4, Dodge Viper TA, and a Corvette C7 Z06; and shipped out to Summit Point. By the time the crew had pulled into the paddock, the rain was falling and puddles were accumulating on the track. It was looking like the day was going to be a total bust.

As we hopefully waited out the weather, Pobst and TPC Racing owner Mike Levitas shared stories of their racing days together in Grand-Am. After that, Mike gave tutorials on how to tune an active chassis using the DSC Sport tuning software. Finally, at about 1pm the sky began to clear up. By 1:30pm, the track was hot... [Read More]

718 Cayman Arrives

Apr 25, 2016 - 1:38 PM - by K-Man S
The new Porsche 718 Cayman

The fourth, redeveloped generation of the mid-engine sport coupé is extending the new model series just a few weeks after the debut of the new 718 Boxster.

The same new four-cylinder flat engines with turbocharging as in the 718 Boxster are being deployed in the 718 Cayman. As a result, coupé and roadster have an identical engine output for the first time. The entry-level... [Read More]
