  1. Well Chit!.........................

    987 Cayman and Boxster Chat
    Running a part to one of my guys at an off site location yesterday and a van in front of me kicked up a bolt. Dead center of the passenger side windshield. I researched the forums and I've decided to let Safelite fill it for now. Everyone said keep the factory windshield as long as possible. I...
  2. Unexpected GT4

    981 Chat
    Been lusting over GT4's for a while but not soon enough as I did not jump on the bandwagon early and could not get an allocation. I finally saw one in person couple of weeks ago on the local dealer's showroom floor. Drooled over it in front my usual sales rep and he told me it had been ordered...
  3. "the Cayman is one of the very best cars on the planet"

    987 Cayman and Boxster Service and Tech
    Of course WE know this, and the rest of the blurb from C&D about the Cayman, in general, as one of "The 10 Best Cars Nobody Buys," is fun to read as one of the "nobodies" who chose "one of the very best cars on the planet." Car and Driver As long as there are still options for enthusiasts, I...
  4. 718 Alternatives Under $60K (New Cars Only)

    718 Chat
    So, I think it's an understatement to say that most people here aren't particularly excited about the 718 and it's turbo flat-four engine. Suppose that for whatever reason, you missed out on getting a new 981.1 (maybe the base wasn't fast enough and the S was out of your price range), and you...

    987 Cayman and Boxster Modifications
    Alright for all those who have replaced the factory plenum on their Caymans with the IPD Plenim, I need your help. But understand I am not replacing my Plenum but I am trying to take it off as part of my engine painting. I followed the step by step PDF guide provided by one of our forum...

    Video Games
    For those of you who play either one or both of these games, it might be fun to chase each other's lap times on various tracks. Here's my gamertag if anyone wants to add me to their friend's list on the XBOX. stampee
  7. My 2016 Boxster S in Sapphire Blue on way to dealership

    981 Chat
    file:///Users/charlesremaley/Documents/2016%20Boxster%20S%20Car%20Build.jpg This is one of the last two naturally aspirated 2016 Boxster S coming to my dealer. I was going to wait until February but happened to be at the dealer last Saturday and was told that there my not be any left in...

  9. Almost hibernation time...

    981 Cayman GT4 Chat
    It's basically been a month since I took delivery of my Agate Grey GT4. I just broke 1000 miles today and I'm finally feeling more at ease and less nervous behind the week. Some chips on the naked headlights, one scrape on the underside of the front lip, and a small tear on the clear bra on...

    981 Chat
    Hi, I'm waiting on the arrival of a new Cayman S in January... so like every other day i've watched about 20 YouTube videos about the Cayman S. One thing i am starting to notices is the huge difference in times quoted for 0-60 One video review stated 4.0 seconds, another 4.2... 4.6, 4.7 and...
  11. Numeric Racing Shifter Cable Wrench - Houston

    987 Cayman and Boxster Chat
    Hello - does anyone local have one that I can borrow/buy for the weekend? Thanks! Edit - disregard, the wrench was missing from the shipping box and Numeric is sending one. I was hoping to install this weekend, the car is my DD and the oem cables are toast. On a side note, the Numeric...
  12. Dealing with the glare/reflections on non-black interiors... options?

    981 Cayman and Boxster Modifications
    I still happy with the Luxor Beige full interior, it really is cheerful in the car; but yeah, I understand the desire to avoid the reflections in the windshield that drives so many to choose black or duo-tone. Actually all one sees is the black voids in the dash, the array of holes in the radio...

  14. Test drive McLaren 650S?

    Automotive Off Topic
    I went to the event full of excitement and thankful for being fortunate to test drive the McLaren 650S. After a briefing about McLaren history we were taken to the cars lot where I immediately jumped saying I'll take the green spyder. I was so happy to an extent that my friend asked if I'll end...
  15. Hand brakes and hill starts?

    981 Boxster Spyder Chat
    I just noticed in the pics that there is no hand brake. I did some research and it seems that cars are now being fitted with an electronic hand brake or "E Brake". So my question is then, how does one do hill starts without one in a manual? And what options are available for emergency cable...

    Community Help
    It seems that an ex member here named extanker left one of his subscriptions active even though his account was closed due to his bad behavior in the past. Yesterday someone replied to a topic he subscribed to so this website sent him the following email: > Dear extanker, > > rpsPorscheOwner...
  19. Cayman Loose seat rail fixed

    987 Cayman and Boxster Problems and Complaints
    Very odd but discovered my rarely used passenger seat had some bad movement on the right corner. I tracked it down to a loose bolt, however tightening did nothing but spin it. The seat rails are a complete part - so there's no replacement parts available. I had to tear into it to diagnose the...
  20. R8 comparisons

    981 Cayman and Boxster Comparisons
    Thinking about the R8. I don't like the look as much as the Gallardo (or maybe even as much as my 981) and it doesn't sound as good, but it is more practical and could work as my only car (the Gallardo would require me to have 2 cars). Anyone come from an R8 to a 981 or vice versa or have...
