  1. FS: OEM Silver 981 GT4 Wing Supports

    Planet-9 Classifieds
    Complete set of 981 GT4 wing support brackets and hardware. These are in perfect condition. My car was originally delivered with these supports, but I swapped them with black parts after less than 1 year and 2,500 miles. Asking $700 including shipping in the U.S.
  2. Question regarding deactivation of Cayman spoiler

    981 DIY Discussion
    Hi there! I just installed a ducktail lip & GT4 spoiler on my 981 Cayman and I've called several local dealerships in Southern California to see if they can code my Cayman to a GT4 to deactivate the motorized wing from deploying and they all gave me the same answer, "unless I purchased the GT4...
  3. Should I Trade my 981 Spyder for a 718 ???

    981 Boxster Spyder Chat
    Kind of had thoughts in back of my head about possibly trading my 2016 Spyder with 6000 miles for an 2020 718 Spyder. New car warrantee; bigger engine, more HP, bigger wheels & tires, PASM, Car Play, backup camera. I like some things that are new like Apple Car Play since 2016 can't do anything...
  4. Orders for GT4 and Spyder

    718 Chat
    Does anyone have any info on when GT4 and Spyder orders will actually be able to be placed. I have a deposit down for a spot, but that's all for now.
  5. No Lift Shift In 718?

    718 Chat
    Hi, Can anyone confirm if a manual 718 has ‘no lift shift’? In particular, the new GT4?
  6. 718 GT4 On The Road (Video)

    718 Chat
    I’m sure everyone has seen the new GT4 on the track for the press... however this seems to be the first video of the GT4 on the road, although it looks like a track :-)
  7. 718 Spyder visibility

    718 Chat
    I have a deposit down on a GT4 but am considering a Spyder. It is simply gorgeous and has a couple of street friendly options missing from the GT4. My concern, however, is over the top-up driving. The visibility looks horrendous and there is no lane change assist or any driver "aids" to make...
  8. Finalising GT4 Spec

    718 Chat
    Hi, I had an email from my dealer this morning seeking an update on my spec. I'm still not sure as to go for GT Silver (which my 718 GTS was), or go for Crayon / Chalk. I think Crayon / Chalk would look great, but I think it would become tiresome after a few weeks? I also think the Crayon /...
  9. 718 GT4 Timelines (Media Cars)

    718 Chat
    Hi, There are several posts around the new GT4, etc... and I don't think my question is covered. Does anyone know when Porsche will start giving the car to the media, or to Vloggers so we can really experience and find out about the car, instead of just watching the press clips that they have...
  10. Why I'm ordering a 718 Spyder

    718 Chat
    Okay, so this is a knock off of K-Man's thread on not ordering, no big deal though, as exactly NO ONE has asked me about ordering the Spyder. 1) The new 4.0L engine is a good bit larger than my 981 BS at 3.4 liters, we're talking roughly 100hp and 50lbs/ft of torque. The higher revs (8k)...
  11. Why I'm not ordering a 718 GT4

    718 Chat
    I've been asked by several people if I am ordering the new GT4 and the answer is simply No. I would just say No, but everyone wants reasons, so here are some of MY reason (don't have to apply to anyone else) and in no particular order. 1) The 4.0L engine does not rev as quickly as the older...
  12. 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...
  13. 718 GT4 Order

    718 Chat
    Hi, I received a lucky and grateful call from my local Porsche dealership last Wednesday. They received one build slot for the new 718 GT4, which they kindly offered to me. I gave them a draft spec and deposit that afternoon to confirm the order. The car should arrive in September, so I will...
  14. Differences between 718 GT4 Clubsport and 718 GT4

    718 Chat
    Hi all, So I was curious as to what everyone thought of the differences between the two cars. If I understand correctly, the Club Sport is running the same motor as the last GT4 (3.8) where as the new GT4 is running a new 4.0. Curious if the 3.8 is superior to the 4.0 and what everyones...
  15. Transmission Swap???

    981 Cayman GT4 Chat
    Got the call from Porsche, they want to swap out the transmission in my GT4 (nothing wrong, just a preventative recall so that I don't get the 3rd gear issue - which I haven't ever had). Anything to look out for from anyone who has had this done? Can I keep my original transmission? I mean...

  18. FVD Race Exhaust Fitment

    981 Cayman GT4 Chat
    Is anyone using the FVD catless racing exhaust system on a GT4? If you are could you post several photos of the alignment of the pipes that run from the headers to the rear mufflers, specifically how the front pipes align with and attach to the center OEM exhaust supports (item 7 in the...
  19. GT4 Cabin sound with mods

    981 Cayman GT4 Chat
    I am looking to join the GT4 family and have been searching for one. There is a local GT4 with sharkwerks mods minus the differential and header which I really want to get. Went to the test drive but found this whirring/drone sound which my wife and I think would be too much to bear for normal...
  20. 718 GT4 - Success or Failure?

    981 Cayman GT4 Chat
    Ok I'm starting to get enough questions of "Hey are you trading your existing GT4 in on a new one?" that I thought I would pose the question to all of you about what would make the new 718 GT4 a success or failure. While I am not planning to trade or buy one, here are some thoughts from my...
