  1. 987 Cayman and Boxster Service and Tech
    I was wondering if someone can provide insight on the oil leak on top of my 3.4L 9A1 Engine I see the passenger side of the plenum wet and also top of the driver side of the engine where the oil cooler is wet as well. I am not sure if the oil cooler is leaking as the whole thing is all covered...
  2. 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?
  3. 981 Cayman and Boxster Modifications
    So I was watching a video review of the 981 Spyder, and the reviewer was discussing that the earlier Spyder (987) manual top was a pain to raise and lower quickly. He then demonstrated raising the top on the 981 Spyder. Other than the 2 snaps for the cloth flying buttresses, the top looked just...
  4. 981 Cayman and Boxster Configurations and Ordering
    Does anyone know how to remove the top satellite antenna? Does it only attach from inside under headliner or can it be removed from outside? I am looking to wrap the roof is why I want to remove antenna cover temporary during wrap.
  5. 987 Cayman and Boxster Modifications
    I found a lightly used set of Cayman R dampers, which will be replacing the stockers in my 2009 base Cayman. They didn't come with any top mounts. My stock top mounts have 60K miles on them. Should I plan to re-use them or should I just splash out with new ones at this mileage, considering...

    Just made a little video about waterproofing the top and lubricating the obvious noise areas.

    Recently, a gas station that sells non-ethanol gasoline took over the location of another gasoline retailer in my neighborhood. The old retailer did not sell Top Tier gasoline. The new retailer sells Top Tier gasoline. The new retailer also sells non-ethanol Top Tier gasoline, but only in 89...
  8. 987 Cayman and Boxster Problems and Complaints
    Hey there, Recently my '06 Boxster has been making more noise when opening/closing the top. The sound seems to be distinctly a clicking sound and is more noticeably when the top is near-fully retracted in both directions. The top seems to open slightly slower than before. Any idea what it could...

    I just returned from SEMA 2017 and saw so many beautiful and amazing cars. I found an article that highlighted the top Porsches at the show and thought you might all enjoy seeing it as well. Best Porsches of SEMA 2017 | Automobile Magazine

    I know this has been published in chart form but for the life of me can't find it. Does anyone know what th published top speed is in each gear for the 981S? Thanks for any help in advance.
  11. 981 Chat
    I know this was discussed once before, but I wanted it to be specific to the 981. Do the larger wheels cause the engine to lose torque and thus actually reduce top speed ? Or does it provide an increase ?
  12. 987 Cayman and Boxster Problems and Complaints
    2011 Boxster S So a few weeks ago we got some heavy rain, and I didn't realize my drain holes were clogged. Rear Control Unit got soaked and the top tried to put itself down while it was latched, breaking the white pushrods. I ordered a new OEM rear control unit, installed it and had the dealer...
  13. 987 Cayman and Boxster Problems and Complaints
    First and foremost, I'm an idiot. With that out of the way, today I failed to notice that my top hook was still caught on the windshield as I held the "retract" button to lower my top. Big noise (like something breaking) and now the top doesn't move at all when trying to raise/lower it. Stays...

  15. 981 Cayman and Boxster Problems and Complaints
    I recently started to hear a persistent vibration noise coming from the convertible top of my 2014 Boxster. The top was raised and I was on the highway. The noise seemed to go away at speeds below 40mph (65 kph) or if I pushed up on the headliner just ahead of the passenger head restraint...
  16. Porsche Care and Detailing
    I just got a new Boxster with a black soft top so I stopped at a local Porsche dealer for some supplies. They sold me a can that appears to be authentic Porsche Tequipment. Its labelled "Verdeckpfleger, Convertible Top Waterproofer, 400ml". I have two concerns with the can: 1) the number on...
  17. 987 Cayman and Boxster Service and Tech
    So I had been searching for a while for a way to adjust the sides of my convertible on my 987.2, specifically where it bend over the top of the back of the window. It was loose on both sides when I bought the car so the top was closing over the guide rails instead of in like it should. I had...

    I recently purchased a CPO 2014 981 BS, and absolutely love it. Though whatever water repellant coating might have been on the Boxster top when it was new must have gone by now: I sprayed a bit of water on the top and no water drops were pearling off, instead the fabric just got wet...

    Guys, This probably sounds stupid, but being new to both Porsche and convertibles, I figured I'd ask. Is it bad for the soft top to be cycling it several times a day, due to multiple stops during an outing? I know that wear and tear is inevitable and resulting from use, but just wondering how...

    Let me start off by saying that I'm not trying to start an argument or get into a pissing match. I am just generally curious about first-hand experiences. I topped out at 137 mph the other day, it would not go any faster as it would fluctuate between 136 and 137. Has anyone else with a 2.7L been...
