  1. Re: Car and Driver Long Term Boxster S Review

    Chester43----exactly . See my post on this thread. Even the 2.0 has full torque at 1950 and the NA3.4 4450 or there abouts.
  2. Re: Car and Driver Long Term Boxster S Review

    I have read the article a couple times now. On balance, I thought it reasonably even-handed. While the reviewer did comment about the MT, he also noted that the PDK addresses the issue. My two...

    Re: pros and cons of 20" vs 19" vs 18"

    My first Cayman (08 CS) had 18's. The 4 subsequent are all 19's. I liked the looks of my Cayman R with 19s and lowered (X73) suspension. My 2014 Cayman had 19's and stock suspension and I thought...

    GT4 and Spyders are low volume variants of the Cayman/Boxster. If we are to believe Porsche's reason for moving to the turbo 4s was because they could not get the needed mileage improvements in the...

    Interesting debate. I wonder whether the couple or convertible will be the preferred purchase? That may, as much as anything, determine whether it is BMW or Toyota.

  32. Re: First Impressions My New 718 vs Previous 981

    Good point on the front tires 'skipping' difference. I did not have that much at all in either 987 I owned. It was pronounced in both 981s and I have not noticed it in the 718 thus far.
