    Re: Is it buyer remorse or my OCD

    Porsche apps can use some work but you can look up destinations in the Connect app and send them to the car. However, this only seems to work if the phone is connected to the car.

    Re: Is it buyer remorse or my OCD

    I think they've done a good job with the BT, sounds pretty similar to hardwire. Have you found that you could use thePorsche apps without the internal WiFi? I have tried not hooking up my phone to...

    Thanks guys, kind of what I expected. While the car shaped fob is interesting, I would have preferred something much smaller, maybe like the Volvo offers. I guess I live with the bulge - is that a...

    I find the signal in the car using the built in WiFi less than adequate and lose Waze quite a bit. I do listen to Spotify but can do that using BT rather than the Apple interface. I don't use the...

    Pouch or case for key fob

    I think it's been a while since this was addressed so here it goes. I have the Porsche key fob on a ring with two other keys. I find that this is quite uncomfortable in my pocket. I was wondering...

    It is certainly a different cadence. I'm okay with it. I would prefer the nA 6 sound but this is okay.

    I don't think they sound terrible, just different. I believe Porsche tweaked the exhaust sound in 2019, particularly with the GTS. Give a listen to one at speed. I would agree that the six sounds...

    Re: 2018 Leftover Inventory is huge.

    I think a lot will depend upon the price point of the NA 6. With the 718 GTS starting at 80K, what will the bump be for the NA engine? I'm thinking at least another 10K, depending on the engine and...

  18. Re: 6 cylinder NA cars are for "touring" (unless they aren't)

    Thank you for that response, makes a lot of sense.
  19. Re: 6 cylinder NA cars are for "touring" (unless they aren't)

    Could that be because more were sold initially?
  20. Re: 6 cylinder NA cars are for "touring" (unless they aren't)

    Yes, the GTS is at 365 HP. However, I don't see them discontinuing anything, look at the congifurators for UK and Germany.
  21. Re: 6 cylinder NA cars are for "touring" (unless they aren't)

    I totally agree and think the base with a detuned GT3 engine would be even higher that $115K. The average 718 GTS is going out the door at somewhere near $90K and can go much higher. Even...
  22. Re: 6 cylinder NA cars are for "touring" (unless they aren't)

    As long as the 911 price of $275K isn't coming along with it.
  23. Re: Have you noticed the 981 Cayman appreciating over the last year?

    I'm not confused at all. I have had 4 Porsches, they were all fine cars, including the current 718. I have never felt the need to "bond" with a car, simply to have fun driving them. If you need to...
  24. Re: Have you noticed the 981 Cayman appreciating over the last year?

    Not at all....sorry you can't take criticism.
  25. Re: Have you noticed the 981 Cayman appreciating over the last year?

    Perhaps the cars are made for driving, not for developing a relationship.
