  2. 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...

  5. Returning to Porsche

    718 Chat
    Well, after a brief interval back with Audi, I decided that I wanted to own a Porsche once more and, this week, ordered a 2019 Cayman GTS for delivery in the spring. The RS3 is a great car but I missed driving a Porsche. I was a little hesitant about the 4 cylinder engine but, decided that...
  6. First Impressions My New 718 vs Previous 981

    718 Chat
    As I had noted in a couple other threads, my 718 Base arrived and was delivered on Monday. While all is still fresh in my mind, I thought that I would offer some initial impressions between my previous 2016 Cayman Base and the 2019 Cayman Base. While not apples to apples, I think the two are...

  11. Who was the best Beatle?

    General Off-Topic
    So I'm sitting here putting together a Beatles' playlist (love the Beatles), and I thought it would be cool to make a playlist of songs when each Beatle was solo. I always felt Lennon's lyrics were deeper, more profound and more inspiring. But after playing a bunch of McCartney's songs, I think...

  14. Test Drove 718 Base and S - Replacing my 2016 Cayman Base

    718 Chat
    I had my 2016 Cayman Base in for 20,000 mile service and decided to test drive the 718 Base and S. Love my dealer, he tossed me the keys and said have fun, let me know what you think when you get back. I did this as I am in the early stages of looking to move to my next (5th) Cayman. Let me...
  15. Tire Wear after AutoX - More camber or more pressure?

    981 Cayman and Boxster Competition
    Hello all! After the first autocross in my 981 BS with PASM in not-freezing temps, I noticed that the outside shoulder of the front wheels were showing more wear than the inside. Attached is a photo of the left-front 20" Pirelli Pzero (the right-front outside shoulder looked identical)...
  16. Short Shift Kit on 718

    718 Chat
    718 Peeps -- I installed the Porsche OEM Short Shift Kit (https://www.suncoastparts.com/product/PK9X1SSU.html) 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...
  17. New 718S or used 981

    718 Chat
    Sorry Folks but I deleted this OP. I meant it as a joke...irony...but somehow too many people didn't see the humor and were treating it as a real questions. Looked like it was going to be another pissing match between the 981/982 so I deleted it. Sorry again.
  18. more wear on the inside of front tires?

    Porsche Tires & Wheels
    My fronts are lasting OK, but the inner tread is considerably more worn than the center and outer. The miles are about 50-50 between normal highway and very curvy highway, with long curves that pull .5-.7G at 60+ mph, unscientifically. I used to run a lot of very tight roads, all 2nd gear...
  19. Chatter-free tires!

    Porsche Tires & Wheels
    This has probably been posted before, but I just have to say how amazed and pleased I am with the Michelin PS4S tires. Just had them installed on 20 inch HRE FF01 wheels a few weeks ago. Weather has been cold and somewhat snowy here, so haven't driven them more than 30 miles or so. After heavy...
