  1. Air Conditioning Compressor question - winter use

    718 Chat
    Some time ago, a service advisor told me that I should leave my A/C on year round, regardless of weather so that the seals would not dry out. I live in an area where we do have winter and no A/C is needed for probably half the year. Any input on that old advice? Do you keep it on all year or...

  5. Attempting the DIY Life!

    981 DIY Discussion
    So at 35k miles on my 981, I'm now due for interim service. Up till now, I've done everything at the dealer, but after a few moves, I'm not particularly thrilled with the dealer closest to me and the one I like is exorbitantly expensive. I'm now at a point where I feel comfortable trying...
  6. Why I'm ordering a 718 Spyder

    718 Chat
    Okay, so this is a knock off of K-Man's thread on not ordering, no big deal though, as exactly NO ONE has asked me about ordering the Spyder. 1) The new 4.0L engine is a good bit larger than my 981 BS at 3.4 liters, we're talking roughly 100hp and 50lbs/ft of torque. The higher revs (8k)...
  7. 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...

  11. 718 GT4 - Success or Failure?

    981 Cayman GT4 Chat
    Ok I'm starting to get enough questions of "Hey are you trading your existing GT4 in on a new one?" that I thought I would pose the question to all of you about what would make the new 718 GT4 a success or failure. While I am not planning to trade or buy one, here are some thoughts from my...

  18. Porsche-centric "collectables" - in this case a... go-kart?

    General Off-Topic
    While I'd buy anything from a toilet seat to a flyswatter if it said "Sunbeam Tiger" on it, have not bought a lot of Porsche "stuff" (but was given some sweet 1/43rd scale cars) yet. Anyway, a neighbor called because, frankly, I might be the only Porsche owner in this zip code. He came into the...
