    I've started doing left foot braking but I find the pedal height uncomfortable. I was hoping there is a way to lower the pedal height to be more accommodating. Thanks.

    After installing braided SS brake lines, new rotors and power bleeding the brakes, I’m wondering if my brake master cylinder is suddenly failing. I’d like to hear your thoughts. I have 105k miles on my ‘11 987.2 base Cayman 6MT. Brake pedal travel has always been a bit long (like others have...

    Ran into a problem this weekend at Summit Point with pedal fade on my 2011 Cayman S PDK. Starting with my first run after about 7-8 laps my pedal would get sponge and gradually sink to the floor especially coming into turn 1. I still had braking ability but it was unnerving to say the least. So...

    2007 base 2.7 with Tiptronic with 75,500 miles! After driving on a commute for thirty minutes and taking off from a traffic light my car will shift at around 2000 rpms till it gets to 4-5 gear all good! So around 25-35 mph and 1500 -2000 rpm either 4th or 5th gear, typical city commute on...

    Note: I'd like to thank Interpol for providing the first two DIY guides and Artem for the last one. The video was helpful as I took away lesson learned on how not to damage the OE hold-down plastic tabs. Take your time when removing the dead pedal; use the Tequipment dead pedal as guide and...

    I've got an intermittent issue that I can't figure out in my 2006 Cayman S. Once in a while, the power would cut out while throttle is applied. In all situations, the clutch is fully engaged and there is no traction control light on the instrument cluster. When the issue exhibits itself...

    So... after three years of arguing with myself over the indefensible cost, I changed out the shiny aluminum dash trim for black anodized trim, and installed the OEM Porsche aluminum pedals. Everything looks great. However, the other day, I got into the car to see the aluminum break pedal cover...

    I recently did a full brake fluid flush and put a new OEM brake pads. I did this on numbers of other cars for years, so not new to it. What new is I used a MOTIVE pressure bleeder for the first time https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0002KM5L0/ref=oh_aui_search_detailpage?ie=UTF8&psc=1 I did...

    I have recently installed a pedal set by Rennline, really like them, look great, HOWEVER, I was wondering if anyone had issues with accidentally hitting the throttle extension during normal driving off track? 2014 BS

    Getting the car ready for a DE will require the brake system flush; the last time I had it done I used a product called GS 610. The specs looked great, the price was reasonable, the pedal feel was outstanding, but I keep reading that it's out of production and current stock may be old. I've...

    Hi all, any recommendation for pedal pads? Looking to replace the OEM pads on my used 2014 Cayman base which I purchased recently... thanks!

    I'm in the market to replace my current SUV. I'm considering the Cayenne. I drove a V6 Cayenne and noticed it tends to linger on the downshifts. I gather this is a 'Porsche thing'? As in, you're rolling along on the highway and want to accelerate to change to a spot in a different lane...

    Hi, I recently purchased a 2008 Cayman S. I took it out to my first DE event today at NHMS. I ran it for 8 sessions, and after about 10 laps in each session, I started getting an extremely soft pedal which made me very nervous. The car would still stop, but eventually the pedal would bottom...

    My gas pedal has been acting strangely. As I was about to pick up the car after a bunch of work, the shop reported that the pedal had failed. But then they unplugged it, charged up the battery which was low, and everything appeared to be working fine. Had a long drive home from Florida to...

    I've noticed recently why idling and with the 6 speed transmission in neutral with the clutch let out completely I am experiencing a noise. it sounds like a squeak-squeak-squeaky, or a loose pulley/bearing noise, spinning noise or the like. as soon as I put my foot on the clutch pedal and...

    For few track days now, my brake pedal would get mushier and go deeper to the floor toward the end of the session. So I thought there's gotta be air in the system, nothing too surprising. Normally it'll be fine once the brake cools down. The strange part is, 2 events ago, the pedal never firmed...

    So, have just had my 2 year old Cayman serviced and brake fluid changed. On driving home, definitely noticed a different 'feel' and travel on the brake pedal. Was almost as if the pedal lowered slightly during second press having applied brakes a second or so earlier? Highly suspect brakes...

    Hello everyone, i've a strange issue with my brake pedal. Last week my struts were replaced (i installed the bilstein B6 in place of the stock items). When i had the car back, the brake pedal felt strange, in certain conditions the first half of the travel was useless. Took the car back, made a...
