  1. Suncoast Black Grille Kit for 981

    981 Cayman and Boxster Modifications
    Actually the S in 2014 came with black and base cars were painted body color, then 2015-2016 was the opposite the base car got black and S were painted. So I'm not sure I would call this an upgrade or downgrade (not that you did) but more of a personal choice for aesthetics.
  2. 997 GT3 Calipers on 987S

    987 Cayman and Boxster Modifications
    I really doubt these will work. I’m gonna be doing the big brake upgrade (suncoast) on my 981 and have been doing a little research of my own. First, the 911 has a totally different knuckle (where the calipers mount) and no doubt! the GT3 will have as well. Whether the calipers will fit the 987...
  3. Rumours of production delays on 718 GT4 and Spyder?

    718 Chat
    I agree. I do the same, but it seems to be lately a situation with the marketing I can't not be perturbed. It made sense for a while in the 80s-90s, but now it's like they've taken the strategy too far and they look silly. Almost to the point of thinking, 'these customers are so stupid...
  4. Rumours of production delays on 718 GT4 and Spyder?

    718 Chat
    Well, both cars are 6s and always had been. The fact that one is turbo and one is not, turbo/GT3, is the M.O. for that model line. Now that they've added turbos to all of them is a bit of a conundrum but still not as bad as marketing based on a historical model, they're still 911s with flat...
  5. Rumours of production delays on 718 GT4 and Spyder?

    718 Chat
    Yes the GT4 NA6 and the rest with the T4, all 718s. The corner being the “story” for the whole 718 angle. They’re trying to have it both ways and with their M.O. of tying a model to their history, they just can’t do that in my book. It just bugs the hell out of me and kind of makes them lose a...

    There’s already 2 982s, the minute they announced the 718 GT4/Spyder. I feel like they’ve painted themselves in a corner with the 718. Bugs the hell out of me. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. Poll for those auto obsessed

    Well mainly I’m saying I can’t stand to drive a dirty car. The inside most times is pretty clean. This time it appeared like it had never had a proper wash. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    981 Cayman and Boxster Problems and Complaints
    See your other thread with the poll for my story, but I even planned to put Xpel on them only to be told by my installer that he stopped putting it on recent Porsches because of failed coating on the headlights. The film apparently has enough tension when completed that it actually lifts the...

    981 Cayman and Boxster Problems and Complaints
    Re: POLL - Both Cracked Headlights - No replacement from Porsche - Poor Service. I just voted no because I declined the insult offer. Mine is slightly different and less extreme than yours (so far). I have a couple areas on the edges that appear to be starting what you have, but mostly mine...

    How about we wait and see the actual car before we start yelling the sky is falling. I mean this IS GM we’re talking about. They aren’t exactly well known for quality and reliability. Plus the fact it’s a v1.0. You say the C8 ticks all the boxes, I say they are similar in configuration but...
  13. Adding PSE to 981 Cayman Base

    981 Chat
    Exactly on the 981. The Sport mode map ratchets everything up a notch. There is no difference with each transmission that I know of though. Either gearbox in the 981 equipped the same will sound the same. The 987 never did this with the PSE, nor did my 986. It’s with the 981 that it came in...

    My 981 is a manual with no Sport Chrono. It didn’t make the extra noise till I added the PSE. But...the extra fuel consumption is noted with or without PSE since it livens things up. The PSE ‘On’ and Sport mode ‘Off’ (remember I don’t have Sport Chrono) makes no extra noise beyond the deeper...

    How ya figure? Maybe the C7 has dropped $10-15K. Why on earth would this have any effect on 981s.? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  16. Adding PSE to 981 Cayman Base

    981 Chat
    As far as I understand it, the only programming with the PSE is to make the console button function. When I installed mine, the new exhaust comes with a new center switch deck that the PSE button doesn’t function until the dealer tells the car (programming) it’s there. I can attest to more fuel...
  17. Installing Sport Plus button on car without Sport Chrono

    981 Cayman and Boxster Modifications
    Agreed. I would not trust a code from the 'internet' and inserting it into the system of a $60k+ car. Seems a little short sighted. Is the feature really worth that to people?? And I've NEVER heard of activating any kind of code via PCM.

    981 Chat
    No, the non PSE exhaust will not but in the context of this thread, the PSE, the sport button gives you the shenanigans. As I understand it, the map change when the sport button is ‘On’ and the bypassed exhaust of the PSE ‘On’ is where said shenanigans come from. As far as other aftermarket...

  20. Anyway to have Rev matching also on Sport only Setting?

    981 Chat
    Doubtful. I had my dealer try to program Sport Plus. They thought they could and did try, but it seems that type of programming has to go through the mothership in Stuttgart and they nix'd it.
