    Re: Cayman Sales Continue Downward Slide

    Interesting considering you couldn’t even order a Base, 4, S or 4S most of the year as they were transitioning to the new model.

    Re: First Impressions My New 718 vs Previous 981

    If you have Connect and CarPlay is plugged in, for voice control you can use Siri (FWIW), and even better, the Waze app (responds to “OK Waze”). I love Waze on CarPlay. Drawback with phone use in...

    Re: New Spyder/GT4

    If it’s 420 HP, sounds like it’s a version of the 991.1 Carrera GTS engine. I’m surprised they kept the production lines open for those, unless Porsche reserved a thousand engines or so....

    Re: Debris on the road :(

    I’ve had loose concrete on the pavement puncture my right rear tire. (State DOT here, who happens to be a client of mine, is not good about cleaning up debris or addressing loose metal grates or...

    718 sound

    Just disconnected mine based on the advice above. Thanks! The same exhaust note is heard in sport mode but more clearly and with less vibrato and thrum in my Boxster S (with top up) on hard...
  6. Re: 718 Recall (WJ35) - Retrofitting additional protective grilled for air intake

    Just got the same letter yesterday. I called my dealer service to discuss setting up an appointment, and since I don’t smoke nor does anyone who rides in my car, they said the retrofit can take...

    Re: 718 4 cylinder here to stay?

    Still love the 19” BS wheels on the Cayman.

    Re: 718 sound

    Yep, the Soundaktor (a classic Germish term) is documented in the aftersales guide to the dealers, designed of course to make the car more “emotional”. I wonder if there is a way to silence the...

    718 sound

    Sport exhaust is standard on GTS and now on all 2019 718s. However If you put any 718 in sport mode, with or without sport exhaust (mine in a 2017 S model without SE), you get fun angry bear...

    Re: Legroom Cayman vs. Boxster

    Cayman and Boxster have basically the same interior room. Maybe a slight difference in headroom, certainly a difference in getting in and out due to the different height / window aperture of the...

    718 4 cylinder here to stay?

    Visiting the dealer for an open house in their service facility, they demonstrated the engine access to the 991.2. It was estimated to be a 5 hour job to replace the fuel pump, as it’s not just...

    718 4 cylinder here to stay?

    The quote was along the lines of “every 2nd Porsche will be either electric or plug-in hybrid”, split evenly between the two, by 2025. Meaning the other 50% of their vehicles will be standard ICE. ...

    Re: Sport Tex Seats - Hot or Cold??

    I know one with the Sport Tex on the Cayman and other on a Carrera T. All positive so far. Liked in particular if you are doing anything at the track.
  15. Poll: Do you want to see a 718 Subforum structure similar to the 987 and 981 subforums?

    Yes, multiple forums would make sense, especially since the 718 seems to have come into its own. A lot more this year popping up in PCA DE events too.
