  1. Why I'm not ordering a 718 GT4

    718 Chat
    I've been asked by several people if I am ordering the new GT4 and the answer is simply No. I would just say No, but everyone wants reasons, so here are some of MY reason (don't have to apply to anyone else) and in no particular order. 1) The 4.0L engine does not rev as quickly as the older...
  2. 718 Cayman S coolant flush

    718 Chat
    I need to do a thorough coolant flush on my 718 Cayman S. Since the model is still new, there isn't much out there. I'd prefer to do it myself, but depending on the difficulty, I might bite the bullet and pay the dealer. I'm fairly novice but I've done my own pad, rotor, and brake fluid...

    981 DIY Discussion
    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.

    981 Chat
    if I knew now what I knew now. I bought my 2013 981 BS in October, 2012 with MT but without Sport Chrono package. What I did not know or was informed was if ordered with Sports Chrono, then it would REV MATCH on downshift. Anyone come across an aftermarket software upgrade, a Porsche...
  6. DIYs??

    987 Cayman and Boxster Chat
    Is there a dedicated section for DIY on here for 987s? Wish there was, would make it a lot easier. I'm looking to replace a few items on a 987 - the ring around the headlight dial as it's all chipped, interior rear trunk panel where the door latch is, as it too is peeling, cigarette door...
  7. Anyone have issues with radio changing inputs?

    987 Cayman and Boxster Problems and Complaints
    I have a 2012 Cayman S. No issues until a couple months ago. I always leave my radio on satellite radio. When I start the car, the satellite station that was last on comes on. Over the past couple months, I noticed that within about 15 seconds of starting the car, the radio changes to one of...

    Porsche Motorsports and Past Models
    This is not strictly a Porsche event...….but I can guantee you'll see some nice P-cars at the Pittsburgh Vintage Grand Prix. We're heading there tomorrow (with our #909 MG). As in the past, I'm hoping to race a few classic 356s. If you are in the Pittsburgh area, it is well worth attending...
  9. Horrible Scraping Noise

    987 Cayman and Boxster Problems and Complaints
    Last week, my car suddenly started making a horrible scraping noise form the left rear wheel area. It is speed dependent, and it gets louder when you turn right, and much quieter when you turn left. It also refuses to make any noise when it is up on a lift, which is maddening. My first thought...

    Just curious if Porsche disclosed why a $2000+ option is now included for 2019. Is there anything being removed to offset this?
  11. Newbie here in this Forum!

    Middle Eastern Forum
    Hi all! I just wanted to do my presentation in the forum saying hi to all of you. I am still quite new and don't have any 9 yet, but planning to buy a second hand one soon. My main concern is about the speed and the speed cameras. Looks like there is a camera every km! I still need to read a...
  12. Car didn't turn over

    981 Cayman and Boxster Problems and Complaints
    So this morning, I get into my '14 CS, insert the key, foot on brake (PDK), turn the key and nothing. Hmmm. Turn the key again--nothing. Foot off the brake, reapply pressure, turn the key and it fires up no problem. Anyone experience the same thing? I am really not sure it is a problem--I...
  13. Tire choice for more ride comfort on 19" non-PASM?

    987 Cayman and Boxster Chat
    I am interested in any experience out there with increasing ride comfort on a 987.1 with stock non-PASM suspension and 19" wheels. I've searched the forums, lots of posts out there, but most posts are either about 981's, handling (not ride comfort), track tires, or are old enough to not include...

    981 Cayman and Boxster Problems and Complaints
    I know the early 981's had some problems with the stitching where the roof folds, is there anything to keep the top from more damage?
  15. GT4 Prices coming down a little?

    981 Cayman GT4 Chat
    I've been offered a slot by dealer to get a new GT4. So I was just perusing the current 2016 GT4s in their inventory and for the first time, there is one for under $100k. It also has less than 6k on the odometer. Maybe the new GT4 coming with a 4L is starting to have an impact on the current...

    981 DIY Discussion
    Last night I took off a header from my 981 (2.7) to see if I could remove the 2nd cat and get some more noise. I was going for the same idea as discussed here: It didn't work because the...
  17. Clutch issues, need thoughts

    987 Cayman and Boxster Chat
    Hey guys, just wanted to your thoughts on what the possible issue with my clutch could be. I have an 08 CS with 50k kms (about 31k miles) and the other day when I was driving I pushed down the clutch and it felt as if there was less resistance than there usually is. Then later that day I...
  18. Are there any Auto Insurance Companies better for Porsche Owners?

    Automotive Off Topic
    So, I'm thinking of switching Auto Insurance companies. Are there any out there that are objectively better for Porsches (or high end sports cars in general)? I have a decent driving record (I think my last speeding ticket was 5 or more years ago) and I'm not an overly aggressive driver by any...
