  1. 981 Cayman and Boxster Modifications
    Ok. You've heard me praise the merits of the base, short-stroke, small-bore 2.7, and I still dig it, but last night on a local high climb with a Gen-1 Spyder I did pine for a BIT MORE HP. The Spyder just kept pulling, every so slowly mind you, away. I feel like Oliver Twist with his bowl in...
  2. 987 Cayman and Boxster Chat
    This was bought up in my other thread regarding buying a used 987 but I thought it is interesting/helpful to other enough to warrant a separate topic. After purchasing your used 987. I'm wondering how many of you decided to go for an after market warranty and how has things played out? I...
  3. 981 Cayman and Boxster Problems and Complaints
    Out yesterday, I'd been driving spiritedly for maybe 45min/1hr. Lovely drive, great roads, little traffic. Not all-out 10/10ths, but properly enjoying the car (981C Base). I got to part of my route where the road narrowed, and I backed off to a more relaxed pace. It was then I noticed under...

    I've been driving various cars and thought I'd do a post to help others in the same boat out. And if anyone has any thoughts on these cars or my impressions let me have it! So far I've driven: 2008 S with 28,000 miles, asking $30,500 2005 S with 55,000 miles, asking $22,000 2009 Base with...
  5. 718 Chat
    I got a short test drive in a Cayman 718 S today and I was really impressed with the car. Far more refined in feel than the older Boxsters and Caymans I've driven, and much nicer ride quality than I was expecting, and more compliant than my 1M coupe. The sound was about what I expected...
  6. 981 Cayman and Boxster Modifications
    The Vivid Racing ECU flash I have ordered for my '14 BS will purportedly add 30 HP. What will this do to engine longevity and reliability, if anything, and why? I will be pleased with 30 extra horses. I will likely push the car harder. More revs equal more ring and bearing wear, with the...

  8. Porsche Care and Detailing
    Got an email from autogeek about this product. Is it just another new-fangled product meant to suck more money from our pockets that really does nothing more than a good wax? Or is it a legitimate way to noticeably increase paint protection from swirls and other surface-type scratches? If...
  9. 987 Cayman and Boxster Chat
    Hi everyone! I'm posting here as I research more and more information about the 987. From what I've read there seems to be one primary thing to watch with the 987's - the bore scoring. This however isn't a problem on the 2.7 due to larger water jackets around the smaller cylinders (correct?)...
  10. Porsche Tires & Wheels
    I need to get a set of rear tires for my 987.1S. The front ones are Michelin Pilot PS2, so I figured I should get the same for the rear. So I went to Discount Tire Direct to get pricing. There were two Pilot PS2s available. There were two differences between the tires: one is an 'SL' the other...
  11. Porsche Tires & Wheels
    • The Pilot Sport 4S is the higher-performance model and the true successor to the Pilot Super Sport. It will be available in both OE and replacement fitments. With a lineup consisting of 19” and 20” wheel diameters only (with the convenient exception of 245/40R18), the Pilot Sport 4S is...
  12. 981 Cayman and Boxster Modifications
    Well, after several months with my Fabspeed Maxflo exhaust system, I had it removed and put back the original, stock system. It was not an easy decision to make, since there were lots of things I loved about the Maxflo. The Maxflo really does boost horsepower and torque. It's not an "oh wow"...

    Hi, see link for a possible reason and fix, could have been a more costly reason but luckily easily fixed. http://www.planet-9.com/987-cayman-and-boxster-service-and-tech/165729-p0018-hydraulic-solenoid-fault.html

    http://www.planet-9.com/gallery/files/3/risernews.jpg Are you looking to make more of a statement with your GT4? Perhaps you'd like to avail yourself of more downforce by placing your wing in a smoother airflow. Are you tired of not being able to see well out of the back of your GT4? For...

    Hey guys, I've been looking around to see if I find a rear diffuser for the GT4 but haven't had any luck finding anything. I want a more aggressive diffuser that adds some more downforce. Ive seen some for the 987 but none for the 981. Thanks, Jerry

  18. 987 Cayman and Boxster Chat
    Hi all. I have been lurking here for several months, while shopping for a Boxster. (Much thanks for all the helpful info!) I think I am close to making a purchase, but have some questions. First and foremost, can some one recommend a good independent shop in the Kansas City area for a PPI...

    Saturday morning, I got in my car to run an errand and immediately noticed that the car seemed to have more HP. It was quite noticeable. I am one with my car so I can feel these minor changes. :) I thought about it and realized that the day before, a cold dry front came through. Temperatures...

    Appreciate all the help and though I could've done more, all signs pointed to go for this car and the price was right. 08 base Cayman is getting a couple final touches before delivery. Being in Florida, tinting is mandatory for drivers and I'm also getting a side stripe installed. More than...
