  1. Roll bar for 718CS

    718 Chat
    Anyone installed a roll bar in their 718 Cayman? I'm interested in going from OEM seats & 3-point to a bolt-in bar with race seats and harnesses. If you've done this, I'd appreciate hearing your experience on who you had do the work, what parts you used, how good it looks (cars are <2 years...
  2. Punctured heat exchanger

    718 Chat
    Lost the AC on my 2 year old 718CS on Saturday. Stopped by the dealer today to find out what was going on (because crickets), and lo and behold, they tell me they need authorization for the ~$1250 repair on a punctured heat exchanger. I said, what, this isn't covered by the warranty? "No...
  3. 718 GT4... Will PDK be Offered?

    718 Chat
    Putting aside the argument for PDK vs manual. I love both and have owned and tracked both. I simply prefer PDK for the track. I'm ready to plunk down the kids college fund for my very own GT4 but not unless PDK is an option. Sadly, I think the rumors of PDK will not come true. I've spent some...

  6. 718 Cayman S coolant flush

    718 Chat
    I need to do a thorough coolant flush on my 718 Cayman S. Since the model is still new, there isn't much out there. I'd prefer to do it myself, but depending on the difficulty, I might bite the bullet and pay the dealer. I'm fairly novice but I've done my own pad, rotor, and brake fluid...
  7. Suncoast Parts Project 718

    718 Chat
    With our project car fully up and running we wanted to give a little info about it as there aren't too many 718's at the track, at least not in FL as we've seen. Little back story, we used to run a 2008 Cayman S 6-speed that was built more as a little parts display car and then we started...

    718 Chat
    I made an offer for a 17 cpo 718S a few weeks ago that didnt work out. The dealer called me 2 days ago and told me that upper management wants the car off of the lot by Monday, and if I get in my car and come there right away they would sell me the car for wholesale value plus $3k for CPO. To...
  9. 718 Side Intake Protection Grille

    718 Chat
    Just recently available is a factory grille insert for the side intakes of all 718 Boxster/Cayman models. This helps protect your side radiators against debris. We have seen these standard on only one fresh delivery so we think this might be a 2018.5+ standard part. 718 Intake Grille Protection...

    718 Chat
    718 Peeps -- I installed the Porsche OEM Short Shift Kit ( a few weeks ago. It's pretty awesome, definitely worth the $250. Thought I'd provide a quick report: I DIY'd the install and it was drama free. Anyone with patience and a few tools...
  14. Observation My time with a 2018 718 2.0 and comparing it to my 2008 987 2.7

    987 Cayman and Boxster Chat
    My 2008 987 2.7 has been serviced by Hendrick Porsche in Charlotte the last couple of days. Nothing major, just a leaky coolant hose, they were kind enough to provide me with a 2018 Guards Red 718 Base as a loaner. I thought it would be fun to write a comparsion of my impression of these two...

    718 Chat
    After owning three 987.2 Caymans (two S's and my current R), and after several thousand track miles in them, I bit the bullet and bought a 2018 718 Cayman GTS yesterday. It is quite a beautiful car (in a new color called "Chalk"). It was more expensive than I had expected, and it's fast as...

    Please nudge this this somewhere else if mis-posted, I couldn't find a more pertinent place.
