  2. PTS GT3 RS orgasms

    Club 911 - General Discussion
    Excuse my French ;) but what's more beautiful than seeing the mighty hung GT3 RS is seeing it dressed in PTS colors. For the PTS lovers, enjoy this Instagram account dedicated for them: #PTSRS | Will (@ptsrs) • Instagram photos and videos
  3. My first "REAL" drive with the Spyder

    981 Boxster Spyder Chat
    Friend calls me up at 6PM and says "Let's go for a mountain run". He rides a KLR 650 and is a demon on it. 'Mountain run' refers to hitting up Neels Gap on HWY 129 aka Blood Mountain. I would take my bikes usually but since I got the XPEL and CQuartz done to the car I wanted to drive it more so...
  4. New Silver and Black DREAM2's in Stock

    981 Cayman and Boxster Modifications
    B C Velocity Exhaust announces that new Silver and Black DREAM2's are in stock. The DREAM2 lowers the 'pitch of the stock muffler for a more mellow sound, slight improvement in performance and greater overall enjoyment of your Boxster/Cayman. The DREAM2 compliments the Carnewal muffler...
  5. My one month Euro Delivery Trip of my light green GT4

    981 Cayman GT4 Chat
    Hi all I am back ;). After waiting for 16 months, today was the day I picked up my light green PTS GT4 in Leipzig. It is a beauty! And I don't have to repeat how awesome, precise and visceral the driving experience is. It is late here, so I have to just tease you with some pictures and a link...

    981 DIY Discussion
    2015 CS, 6000 mi, 8 track days, using PFC pads, can I get more time from these on track? Click on picture to see better. Thanks
  7. New 911: another grouchy review?

    Club 911 - General Discussion
    Ten Things You Learn Driving The New Turbo Porsche 911 Carrera Sorry if if this has been posted before. Guy seems a grouch. Another review where base Carrera is supposedly more appealing, the S has a 'more elastic throttle'. Rear wheel steer, another thing to worry about failing at high...
  8. New Macan GTS

    Cayenne and Macan Chat
    Pick my wife's Macan GTS yesterday replacing her RX300. Quite happy with the options we chose. Compared to other vehicles, the Macan GTS out handles them quite easily, but certainly nothing like my Cayman GTS. Carplay works well as a v1 product. Wish the integration was more seamless. The...
  9. In Car Turbulence and Noise

    981 Boxster Spyder Chat
    I've been able to drive the Spyder a bit more with the top down (no big deal getting it that way) and feel it has significantly more turbulence and wind noise than my 2014 BoxterS did. Wondering if any of you that have/had a 981 Boxter feel the same.
  10. 1200 mile check-in (Swear it's not what it looks like: she isn't a garage queen)

    981 Chat
    I've had the Cayman for a few months now but between the weather and taking the bus, I've only put around 1200 miles on it. As in, still in the "break-in" period but I follow the warm up routine religiously and now rev up to around 5K 2-3 times every time I take the car out. Here are my...
  11. Agate Gray Spyder delivery and first impressions

    981 Boxster Spyder Chat
    Just picked up my new Spyder at the dealer, and enjoyed a short drive home. Wow, what an awesome car! I couldn't be more happy with the sound, the Burmester stereo, the bucket seats, and the overall driving experience. I can't wait until I get more time to drive and enjoy it. Initial...
  12. Radiators

    987 Cayman and Boxster Modifications
    I've been thinking about improving my engine cooling for hot summer track days. My first thought was to consider pwr radiators, as they are used by some Motorsport teams. But my question is are they used by Motorsport teams because they are more durable, which they appear to be, or because they...
  13. How much of a discount on a CPO Boxster S

    987 Cayman and Boxster Chat
    Hi everyone, Im looking to purchase a CPO Boxster S over the next few weeks. As I begin to speak to various dealers it seems that they only drop about 1000.00 of the price. Is more possible or is this what I can pretty much expect? Thanks in advance JEC
  14. GT3 vs Speciale... by an idiot

    Club 911 - General Discussion
    In summary, he's an idiot. In more words: 1) the Speciale is an investment that appreciates in value. The GT3 drops in value. 2) I'd choose the GT3 RS over the Speciale but not the GT3. 3) The GT3 is not even close to the Speciale performance on the street or track. 4) oh yeah.. He's an idiot.
  15. Owner Review of GT4/Spyder Fabspeed Sport Headers

    981 Cayman and Boxster Modifications
    Headers on the GT4/Spyder is quickly becoming one of the best modifications for sound and performance. I have a client by the name of Stephen that was kind enough to provide us a detailed review of the results on his GT4 after he added our Sport Headers. No other modifications were done to his...

  17. Spent too much already!!

    981 Cayman and Boxster Modifications
    I've kitted my car out pretty well so far with £14000 of factory extras, BC hb29 forged alloys, full Techart kit and lowering springs, bmc filters, fabspeed headers and exhaust and just ordered gt3 sway bar and x73 rear. Trying to cut back on my spending now as Ive already spent £30000 more than...
  18. Cayman 987.1 and .2 aero package

    987 Cayman and Boxster Modifications
    My aero package is complete. Consists of front splitter, rear diffuser, side skirts and dive planes. All in an effort to control air flow under the car keeping it stuck to the ground. Next up is to get back to work on the side scoops to try and force feed the motor with more air hopefully...
  19. Tire rotation at service 2?

    981 Cayman and Boxster Service and Tech
    Hey, My car goes in for service 2 this spring and I have noticed a tiny bit more wear on my right rear [P Zeros] than the left. This may be due to more hard cornering into left-handers, don't really know, but is it worth having the techs swap left to right while they have it up? I'm nowhere...
  20. BEST entry level Porsche for $35k : 987.2 Boxster or 997 911 ??

    987 Cayman and Boxster Comparisons
    Hey guys, I'm saving up for my first Porsche (either a 2006 Carrera S Cabriolet or a 2011 Boxster S) and have about $30-40k to spend. I've driven both and loved the performance of each in their own way so I need another factor to decide on. Here's what I liked (and didn't like) about each car...
