  1. Some pics of my Cayman S during carweek

    981 Cayman and Boxster Pictures and Video
    Nice! Here's my car (on the right) in Monterey car week.
  2. Wrecked Cayman

    That's exactly what I was thinking!
  3. Should I sell it?

    981 Chat
    I'm one of the high-mileage owners here, too, I think, with 78k. The car has had no troubles and I have no intention to sell it for anything short of an electric equivalent. The cost of repairs on an "older" car like ours -- 5 or so years old and sub 150k miles -- is much less than the cost of...
  4. Launch X431 CReader 7S Feedback Request

    981 DIY Discussion
    Because of this thread I bought one for around $40 (eBay!) and used it last night on my Cayman. After 3 tries to get the oil service to reset while using the Cayman setting I almost gave up but decided on a lark to try it as a Boxster. Worked like a charm. This is especially funny because...
  5. Oil Change Last night - Fault Oil Level Measure - service necessary

    981 DIY Discussion
    I've changed the oil about a half dozen times in the 981 and this is the first time this has happened. My friend who owns a Porsche and BMW shop says they replace sensors all the time and if I have oil pressure I'm good. Nonetheless, one of the reasons to own 4 cars is so I can drive more than...
  6. Oil Change Last night - Fault Oil Level Measure - service necessary

    981 DIY Discussion
    I just had the same experience. I changed oil last night and it now says there is not enough oil in the car and not to "drive on." Oil pressure is fine. No leaks. 8 qts went in and didn't come out. Sensor wire attached securely. Very frustrating. I assume it is fine to "drive on" but of...

    The pictures tell the story following getting t-boned by a red-light runner.
  8. The yellow car takes a hit (and will get it's fourth bumper)

    981 Chat
    I think they only deploy for front-end collisions.

    Someone ran a red light as I was turning left on the green arrow. Everyone was fine.
  10. Which 911 would best complement your 981?

    The answer is obvious.....

  12. 981 market vs 993 market

    981 Chat
    As a current 981 owner and former (and possibly future) 993 owner, I would say that there are few parallels in terms of collectability. As much as I love my 981 and think it is the perfect Porsche, I'm with gfspencer: It is more like the 914. Not iconic, not the top performance machine in the...
  13. Shortest drive for which you'd use the Cayman

    981 Chat
    Mine is my daily driver and I drive it ever chance I get, too. Short trip (2 miles) or my 50 mile commute. I used to change the oil between5-7.5k but at 50K I sent it to Blackstone and they said everything was great and go for 10k between changes.
  14. "Grand Tour" Suggestions

    Recommended Driving Routes
    I don't have any suggestions, just jealousy. Every time I utter the words "road trip in the Cayman" I get an unprintable response from whatshername--and not the good kind.
  15. Yearly Bonus time! Here’s my list of presents to my 981! [emoji320]

    981 Chat
    Are you sure it works for the older PCM, not the 781 version? On the Schell bar, mine bend under the car when navigating a steep driveway. Took it off and never regretted it. My sales rep talked me out of the multi-function wheel, asking how far away are the knobs in such a small cabin? He...
