  1. 981 GTS vs 2018 TT-RS. Has anybody driven both? Opinions requested;)

    981 Cayman and Boxster Comparisons
    Not sure I'll do this, but want opinions from fellow 981GTS (or S) drivers, to see if I should continue contemplating such more, or forget about it. First, the only reason I'm even considering this is my wife doesn't ride with me on my GTS anymore due to these 3 reasons: -Suspension (X73) too...
  2. Selections in Vehicle Info menu

    718 Chat
    I leave the Vehicle Information screen on in the instrument panel by default, mostly to observe the oil temperature (I drive more gently until that one gets out of the blue zone). I chose water/coolant temperature, oil temperature, oil pressure and voltage as the four selections, which mostly...

  4. Ordering 718 GTS tomorrow

    718 Chat
    Planning to order this configuration with the following options. Comments/suggestions/recommendations welcome: 718 Cayman GTS Carrara White Metallic Porsche Entry & Drive: wanted this mainly for the keyless ignition more than anything else. The keys on my 981 have gotten really beat up...
  5. Seat Bolster Wear

    981 Chat
    The backrest bolster on my driver’s seat is wearing. Yes, I should be more careful getting in and out of the car, but it’s a daily driver with almost 26,000 miles. I looked for some kind of cover, but didn’t find anything. There’s a LWB bolster cover, but that’s for the seat and not the back...
  6. 718 GTS vs 718S

    718 Chat
    This looks like a great deal with the GTS package saving a lot vs, configuring a 718S the same way. But it's not that great a deal for a car that'll see a LOT of track use. I spec'd the 718S the way I'd want it for the track and added a few things for the GTS to make them comparable. In other...
  7. Any 997 Turbo owners current or previous vs 981 thoughts?

    981 Chat
    Greetings, I bought a new 2014 981 CS that I've owned for the last four years. Great car if a little bit more numb steering wise. But still very fun and amazing sound/howl with PSE. That said I've been wondering about more power. Meaning more torque. Speed is less of an issue unless I'm...
  8. First track day in a 718 Boxster S

    718 Chat
    Armed with the brilliant advice that was so generously provided on this forum, I went on my first track day yesterday. It was an immensely enjoyable experience that I am keen to repeat. I discovered the following 1. There is a lot to learn. Reading about racing lines and load transfer is one...
  9. Added powerflex adjustable bushings to my OEM LCAs - alignment numbers

    981 Cayman and Boxster Modifications
    Driving on track with Cup 2's I needed more camber, easily solved with some GT3 LCAs or adjustable top mounts, I know, but the easiest and fastest thing to get out here was some PU Powerflex bushings that are eccentric for camber adjustment. They're supposed to give .75 degree in each...
  10. Performance question 987.2 vs 993

    987 Cayman and Boxster Chat
    I am planning to do a track day with a buddy soon who has a 95 993. He definitely has more displacement (3.6 vs 2.9) but 272 hp. How should I expect my 265 hp to hold up to his car? I am betting that he will have more low end torque, but the moderness of my car will make it easier for me to...
  11. Trouble finding R-compound tires that will fit

    981 Chat
    The 2014 CS spec calls for front tires of 235/40/19. Hoosier, Toyo et all do not seem to make tires of this exact size. Toyo does make a 245/35/19. Will this slightly wider tire rub the fender on turns? Hoosier makes the same 235/35/19 for the front, but it mates with a 295/35/19 in the rear...
  12. Mission E - Can it compete with Tesla?

    Automotive Off Topic
    TaycanEVForum.com - The Largest Porsche Taycan Forum, Community And Owner's Club https://www.planet-9.com/gallery/files/3/tesla400.jpg As some of you may already know I recently purchased a Tesla Model S P85+ after doing a lot of research into what I wanted and driving several different...
  13. Suspension Upgrade for DEs

    987 Cayman and Boxster Competition
    Subject car is an '07 CS with a few mods: previous owner installed Billstein PSS 9 coilovers and rear toe links which allows the car to be lowered and have a nice bit of negative camber, at least in the rear. I'm running Nitto NT-01's, typically either white or black group at PCA events...

  15. Exhaust/engine cooling mods

    981 Cayman and Boxster Competition
    My first DE in this car was this past weekend at VIR (not my first DE, just in this car). It felt pretty good overall, standard 981S suspension is too soft and the alignment could use more camber front (1.1 and 1.3 now). The car was a bit understeer-oriented but not too bad. The esses felt a...
  16. 981 Odd feeling with wider 19 vs 20 Is this normal?

    Porsche Tires & Wheels
    Hi so for the first few years on my 981 CS I ran stock Carrera classic 20" wheels. The car felt amazingly planted and smooth bother side to side and up and down. Even when I added 7mm and 14mm front/rear spacers. In general car felt super smooth over normal roads. Not too long long ago I...
  17. Another alignment data point

    981 Cayman and Boxster Competition
    I posted this on Rennlist but the 981 section there seems to be pretty low traffic at least as far as track oriented people go. Any thoughts? There are a few threads already on this, but it's weird how much the cars can vary so I figured I'd throw some more data out there. Obviously lower cars...
  18. Why so many morons on YouTube?

    Automotive Off Topic
    These two guys are driving a 911. They are clearly unfamilar with the car. They are driving in the dark and speeding on a local highway. Their banter is childish and the only thing missing is a fiery crash with one doofus telling the other 'dude that was totally awesome'. And I watched it...
  19. Few Manuals In Stock In SF Bay Area

    718 Chat
    I've decided to get an MT Boxster and am going to have to order because around here in-stock MTs are about as common as chickens with hats. Is it just the San Francisco Bay Area or is every place practically devoid of MT Boxsters in stock?? Wondering if this is a local(ish) phenomenon or if...
  20. GT4 - More Video - More Metrics!

    981 Cayman GT4 Chat
    I dug into the VIRB a bit more and grabbed all the important metrics from within the camera itself, next time I'll link via BT to the OBDII port and get even more, but for now enjoy this update!
