  4. 718 GT4... Will PDK be Offered?

    718 Chat
    Putting aside the argument for PDK vs manual. I love both and have owned and tracked both. I simply prefer PDK for the track. I'm ready to plunk down the kids college fund for my very own GT4 but not unless PDK is an option. Sadly, I think the rumors of PDK will not come true. I've spent some...

  10. Cayman PDK Question

    987 Cayman and Boxster Problems and Complaints
    I’ve been searching but can’t quite seem to find a thread that addresses my question: I’m not really sure how to describe this exactly, but is it normal for a PDK transmission to shift slowly at very slow speeds? When I slow down but don’t fully stop and then slowly accelerate, it seems like...
  11. LN Engineering Deep Sump on Cayman R PDK

    987 Cayman and Boxster Modifications
    I drive a 2012 Cayman R with PDK, do a fair bit of DEs and like many I've run into issues with controlling engine oil temps. I've already installed a BGB diff cooler that certainly helped, but did not fully mitigate the issue. I am now onto phase two which includes a number of items from LN...

  13. PDK Transmission Pentosin Level; temperature

    981 DIY Discussion
    I just wanted to vent a bit about the fact that Porsche did not integrate information on PDK fluid levels nor fluid temperatures into the DME. How do I know if my PDK's pentosin level is on-spec ? Low or High ? What about the temperature of the fluid ? (especially after some launch control...

    987 Cayman and Boxster Chat
    Hi. I'm looking for a gear type differential for my 987.2S w/PDK transmission. It looks like Quaife doesn't make one, and Wavetrac just released one recently. Does anyone have experience with the Wavetrac diff for PDK or know of anyone who does? Any input on this subject? I'd only consider a...

    981 Cayman and Boxster Modifications
    Hi Guys, Looking to buy my first Porsche. I’ve owned them all, but never a Porsche. Want to start with a 2015 Cayman S or GTS, but I’m a “mod guy.” There’s no chance I’ll leave this car stock. Realistically - I know what I really want is 400hp (at the motor not rear wheel). Gonna get PDK...
  19. Dash showed PDK in manual but lever in auto.

    981 Cayman and Boxster Problems and Complaints
    This is the second time this has happened in very cold temps. Both times temp was about 30 F, reverse worked fine, stopped car put it in drive and dash showed manual mode and 5th gear. There were no harsh noises and the car did not jerk around. Moving the shift lever a few times cured the issue...
