I had been looking for a 987.2 but as one of you suggested (THANK YOU VERY MUCH!), my budget got me into the category of 981s and I found a very nice looking 2013 manual with low miles and full leather in Irvine CA. I fly...

    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 plan to use this mainly for sandblasting...

    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...
