  1. 981 Cayman GT4 Chat
    I am looking to join the GT4 family and have been searching for one. There is a local GT4 with sharkwerks mods minus the differential and header which I really want to get. Went to the test drive but found this whirring/drone sound which my wife and I think would be too much to bear for normal...
  2. 987 Cayman and Boxster Chat
    I took my car to a well respected independent Porsche shop for an alignment and DE inspection. When I got home I noticed 57 more miles on the odometer. Now they did drive me the 6 miles to my office and it is about 11 miles to my house so let's call that 25. Is a 32 mile test drive needed after...
  3. 987 Cayman and Boxster Modifications
    I am in the market for a 987 or 981. Test drove the 981 and all is good. However since the 987's can now be had for $20k to $25k I was tempted and did my first 987 test drive over the weekend. The weather here in Chicago was very cold and so I had to roll up both windows during the test drive...

  6. 981 Cayman and Boxster Service and Tech
    I am doing a dyno test this week, and am concerned about controlling the PDK. When I have tried to do a single gear, full throttle acceleration run in manual mode in 3rd gear on the road, the PDK tranny wants to down shift into 2nd. What method can one employ to force the trranny to hold one...

    A quick PSA for my fellow tree hugging gas guzzling junkies. I have a 987.1 with a softronic tune. I passed smog in 2015, but recently failed due to the readiness status test of the SMOG systems. I specifically failed for the O2 readiness. Smog rules have changed, and all the systems must be...

    Hope everyone's doing great! Curious to get your thoughts on which Cayman to go for. Also considering a 2009 Cayman S given the increase in HP compared to the 2008 model. I'm looking for any and all thoughts. I test drove a 2014 and felt like it may have been a little under powered and "too...

    The Chinese review site autohome.com.cn has conducted an instrumented test of the 718 Boxster S. For some reason the test car did not have SC. The results are: 0-100km/h in 4.08s 0-400m in 12.2s at 186.3km/h 0-100km/h speeds are generally 0.2-0.3 seconds slower than 0-60mph times. So even...

    I got to test drive a 718 S today and I have to say I didn't expect the positive reaction I had...I think a test drive may win over many of the 4-cyl sceptics and it will win over most potential customers that currently don't own a Porsche. The torque delivery is amazing, the car was rev happy...
