    I'm not sure which one is the dad or which one is the mom.....but their kid just looks awesome.
  2. 987 Cayman and Boxster Electronics
    After being in the market for a datalogger for some time, I finally took the plunge and purchased a RaceCapture Pro 3. I looked at the common setups used on cars today: AIM Solo DL, Solostorm plus GPS receiver, Motec, etc. The RCP 3 just seemed like the best bang for the buck. However there is...
  3. Club 911 - General Discussion
    I'm new to the forum and I have something I want to get an opinion/guidance on. I've never owned a Porsche but I have owned several sports cars in my lifetime; some cars include M3's, GTR's, GTO, Nismo Z, etc. Among those cars I had both manual trans and sequential gearbox. After owning two...
  4. 987 Cayman and Boxster Problems and Complaints
    I can use some help when you stop laughing - lol. I just spent a track weekend with the terrible smell of a dead mouse coming through the "fresh" air vents. I pulled the cabin air filter and found part of a nest but no carcass. A couple of day prior I was driving along and heard a sound like...

  6. Porsche Care and Detailing
    Anyone here have any thoughts on which Dr Colorchip kit to go with? There is a squeegee based one meant for large areas, such as for sandblasting (which I have a lot of), and there is a brush on, smearing, kit. Any reason to go with one or the other? I plan to use this mainly for sandblasting...
  7. 987 Cayman and Boxster Modifications
    The question is pretty straightforward, but I can't seem to find any answers here on the board through searching. I'm currently researching my options for upgrading the rather poor factory bose system on my 2007 Cayman S, and one of my concerns is the tweeter mounting space. I might use a...

  10. 981 Chat
    After going to the local Porsche dealership in town to check out a porsche cayman S, sadly weren't able to drive it (rainy day) I asked the question to one of the saleswomen. How many cayman/S do y'all come in on trade-in. Her answer "about one a month on average". We kind of figured it wouldn't...

  12. 987 Cayman and Boxster Chat
    Are there any specific spots on these cars that one should look for rust? Where some bubbles might start to form and indicate a larger problem? i.e rear fenders, under doors, some weatherstripping, etc? They use a lot of salt where I am in the winters. Trying to make sure I don't end up with...
  13. 981 Cayman and Boxster Service and Tech
    Just curious how often are people doing oil changes? My last one was in June and it seems like the next one is basically either 10k miles or 1 year...which in my case will be 1 year. I know that's typical for modern engines...but I also remember 986 owners doing changes every 5k miles. What...
  14. 987 Cayman and Boxster Chat
    When Porsche unveiled the 996, I knew I wouldn't be buying a modern Porsche any time soon. When Porsche unveiled the Cayman, I knew I would buy one in ten years (I'm a lover of depreciation curves). After seeing one in Atlas Grey Metallic, I knew I could never settle for any other color. Paint...
  15. Porsche Tires & Wheels
    Tires, forget about the car model, would always say 32/32 cold (or whatever the pressures should be). The Porsche manuals say, for example, 32/36 cold at 68F. I understand this doesn't mean hot pressures after the tires heat up, which can be 5 psi higher. Some of these tires are so sensitive...
  16. Porsche Tires & Wheels
    I got a nail in one of my summer tires, luckily purchased from tirerack (and installed there at their south bend location). The road hazard warranty that comes with the tires covers it, easy peasy. Because I am rocking the winter tires currently, I can just take the new tire when it gets here...
  17. 987 Cayman and Boxster Modifications
    I have one of the older 996 style Mortorsport AOS's that has been modified by trimming and sealing a curved cut so it fits over the air pump. The hose connections on this unit are different from the one designed for the 987.1 so I am confused on where to run the hoses to/from. Can anyone help...

  19. 987 Cayman and Boxster Chat
    With the several threads about difficulties finding the right 987.2, I thought I'd share this for fun. I'm Boston area based, and was running a national search for a 2010-2012 BS manual with under 30k miles last spring. I got a notice of a really nice target out in Colorado Springs (first...
