  1. Why I'm not ordering a 718 GT4

    718 Chat
    Another reason I am considering a GT4 is downforce at the track and also the gold wheel option from factory. That gold wheel matches my Aprilia RSV4 Factory.

    Good catch. You don't get those options in the GT4. GT4 a slight bit less customizable than the Spyder oddly enough.
  3. Why I'm not ordering a 718 GT4

    718 Chat
    Agreed. Forgot to look at the brake options LOL. But even that said I think I would not like to get the PCCB because of the price and when it comes to replace them. Apparently on track they are not the ones to have either and I track whatever I buy lol. I would just get the calipers painted...
  4. What did you do to your 981 today?

    981 Chat
    Agreed totally. It's a fun road but overrated. Awesome road in Spain! Jealous. I came across an amazing road in Italy going to Cinque Terre from Milan if I am not misremembering and unfortunately I was in a Fiat Panda with 90 hp.

    You guys are hilarious! Honestly I was thinking I would just stick with my 981 Spyder. But it was the wifey who gave the idea and she's really sold on the idea of a Euro delivery. I figured if she's in then so am I. Sure I don't mind sharing my spec. Both in Gt4 and Spyder trim they come out to...
  8. Third gear went on permanent vacation

    981 Chat
    I think you have nothing to worry about. Also not all GT4/Spyders received the faulty transmissions. Mine didn't for example. My SA had told me Porsche was recalling vehicles with 3rd gear issues potentially and my Spyder as in the clear. As far as I know the issue has been resolved in the...
  9. Why I'm not ordering a 718 GT4

    718 Chat
    My wife wants us to do a Euro delivery on a Porsche for my 40th in 2021. I was thinking well if that's the case then I will consider the new GT4/Spyder especially since PDK is on the books now and has been confirmed. I was firmly in the camp of no I don't want to get the new model I am perfectly...

    981 Cayman and Boxster Modifications
    That is pretty awesome. I been mulling over the fact that my Spyder is now over 3 years old and next year in March it will be 4 glorious years of ownership and the mod bug has been quite strong lately. This is a really cool idea!
  11. Who has done a battery replacement in a 981?

    981 Cayman and Boxster Electronics
    Oh wow I didn't realize there was stop start functionality in Euro spec 981s! I thought it only recently got added to the 718 GT4/Spyders!
  12. Pilot Sport 4S.....Cheaper non NO or NO

    Porsche Tires & Wheels
    Agree with both previous posts. In my Spyder the ride is definitely more composed as in someone added another suspension on top of the existing suspension to make the ride more supple if that makes sense. As for grip I have not felt any difference as of yet but then I have not hit up my...
  13. Pilot Sport 4S.....Cheaper non NO or NO

    Porsche Tires & Wheels
    I went ahead and got the N0s lol after watching an Engineering Explained video on his Tesla model 3 performance tires - from Tesla and one stamped without Tesla and there was a difference in 1 inch on the contact patch. The Tesla marked one had more contact patch basically. So since the price...
  14. Pilot Sport 4S.....Cheaper non NO or NO

    Porsche Tires & Wheels
    Well I have about 12.5k miles now on the clock on my car and it's getting time to pull the trigger on tires. I am gonna go with the P4S but I spoke with a tire rack rep and he said save your money and no need to go get the N0 spec tires. 80 dollar price difference. 1260 vs 1340. I am gonna pick...
  15. Mid-Engine Debate 981/982 or C8

    718 Chat
    I was under the impression the inert substrate is for the Speedster. The mid engine cars get the full blown filters.

    718 Chat
    Yeah agreed. I am in no doubt that the Corvette will be a fantastic machine. Bang for the buck it can't be beat. I don't think the price jump for the GT4/Spyder is equal to the performance difference so far that I am reading/hearing about. That said the only reason why I remain interested in...

    Good luck! Keep us posted on your purchase process! A GT3 would be phenomenal!
  18. Why I'm not ordering a 718 GT4

    718 Chat
    I am not ordering it because - price is ridiculous - Already have a Spyder - 10 sec faster around the ring is nothing because the ring has been smoothed over a lot and and tire compounds have improved massively so not really a faster car as far as I can tell right now - I don't like the side...
  19. 2019 F1 season

    Automotive Off Topic
    Agreed. Also seriously there are no cars that will embarrass F1 cars. All about lap times and even with reduced aero they are breaking lap records. Mercedes dominance is boring no doubt. I'm enjoying seeing them operate at such incredible levels though. Regulations keep changing and they're...
