    Re: Why I'm not ordering a 718 GT4

    William:

    I think the new GT4 engine is not from the same cloth as your GT3. According to Ken, it's a stroked 3.0 and is based on the 3.0. So, it's going to be longer stroke. Ken has some...

    Living in Canada means long distance driving for most. It also means winter and very cold temps for most. Both of these things are not the electric's strong suit.

    Trying to predict resale of Porsches is like betting on horses. You can study the books all you want, but you just really never know what's going to happen.

    Well, call me quazy. I traded my '06 Cayman S in on a brand new '19 Carrera T. This has to be the best street 911 ever. Power is just right at 370 HP with lower gearing and the lowest weight...

    Cayman S Re: Couple of issues, Rev limit and oil level

    Looks like a good seat to me for street and casual track use. Just know that there's no slot for a sub-belt and many PCA chapters won't allow that seat in the real fast classes. If you're going...

    Two things you run in to with aftermarket seats. 1.There is no place for the airbag plug, so the airbag dash light comes on...and stays on. There may be a work-around for this...some sort of...

    Re: Front Suspension Noise/ NOT strut bearing.

    I gotta wonder if that grease isn't your problem. I think with rubber bushings, the bar isn't supposed to slide on it. I'm not sure at all about that. If anyone knows difinitively,...

    Re: Front Suspension Noise/ NOT strut bearing.

    First thing is, was the upper bearing bad or not? You can tell when you take it out. If you turn it and it feels very rough or offers a lot of resistance or is frozen...it's bad. If you can see...
