  1. 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...
  2. looking for pointers to videos on replacing coils on a BS

    981 DIY Discussion
    I can find ones on previous models but none on current models. The closest I found was replacing the exhaust. After my fiasco with a failed #6 coil ending my track weekend early, I would like to see if its possible for me to replace these in situ. Thanks in advance.

    718 Chat
    I’m about to take delivery of a 2019 Cayman GTS and would like some advice on wheel brands for winter tires. I would like to buy 19 inch wheels and probably use Michelin Alpins.

  6. 718 GTS multifunction torque display

    718 Chat
    The multifunction display on the 718 GTS has an intriguing torque display is not discussed in the owners manual or anyplace online that I can find. It appears to show the instantaneous engine torque as a function of engine RPM. The display looks kind of like the g-force display with a glowing...

    Who has done this? I see it mentioned but no details, I have the standard silver finish on my GTS wheels and I think I'd like to change to the platinum look. Who should I get to do it?

  11. Metallic bearing noice from engine

    987 Cayman and Boxster Problems and Complaints
    Might be impossible for anyone to help, but I've got a metallic rubbing noise, like a bearing failing, coming from the right side of the engine. It's engine speed dependent and is at it's worse around 2000-3000 rpm. My first thought was the waterpump - i sounds exactly like the early stages of...
  12. baby... car seat question....

    718 Chat
    Once again sorry if this has been asked before..... I tried some keyword search and nothing useful comes up. With everyone's help I finally got a 718 (dark blue, but otherwise pretty basic...). This won't be my daily commute car, but in case of emergency (like if the 4 seater in the shop), I...

    981 Cayman and Boxster Service and Tech
    Just wanted to give a head's up to the 981 crowd about the failure modes for coils. I was driving along on my daily commute and about 20-min in, all hell broke loose. It started with a PSM fail message, followed a few seconds afterward by an ECU fault and Auto Start/Stop fail message. Car...

    987 Cayman and Boxster Modifications
    I have been looking at exhaust options to replace my stock exhaust with 70K miles on it. CEL light kept coming on and I just didn't like the sound of it at low RPM. Decided on the Soul exhaust package after a lot of research on youtube! They are also about 20 minutes north of where I work...

  19. Boxster ragtop

    987 Cayman and Boxster Chat
    This may sound like a dumb question. I remember way back when, when you had a ragtop and washed the car, you were supposed to wait a while before putting the top down due to material shrinkage. Is this still an issue with ragtops like my 09 Boxster?
