  2. Gear shifter leaning to the right in neutral

    987 Cayman and Boxster Problems and Complaints
    Hey guys, I've had my 2006 Boxster for over a year now. Never really had an issue with it until recently. I started about 2 weeks ago when I noticed I couldn't downshift to third from neutral. Upon examination I found that my shifter was leaning to the right. It goes into gear just fine if I...
  3. Transmission help?!?!

    987 Cayman and Boxster Problems and Complaints
    Hello, I have a 2006 Cayman S manual 6 speed. The transmission is making a very weird sound... When the car is at 3000 rpms or below in third, fourth, fifth, or sixth gear it makes an awful growling sound. My mechanic said that the transmissions in this car cannot be repaired because the...

    987 Cayman and Boxster Problems and Complaints
    Hi everybody. Hoping that someone can shed soome light on this. In February I took possession of a 2010 Boxster S with 17000 miles on it. Living in NH I got very little chance to drive it until the last couple of weeks. Under hard acceleration, when I rev to about 6,000 RPM in 1st and then...

  7. How does manual shifter work in mid-engines?

    987 Cayman and Boxster Service and Tech
    In front or rear engine cars, it's easy to see how the shifter is attached directly to the transmission. But in mid-engine cars like the Cayman, the engine is smack between the shifter and the transmission. I've never given this much thought before, but now it's bothering me. Can someone tell...
  8. Transmission Broken! & what to do while it's dropped?

    987 Cayman and Boxster Service and Tech
    Two questions/topics here really, but any advice/suggestions appreciated. I was entering a highway yesterday and shifting up through the gears as I normally do. I wouldn't consider my acceleration "spirited," just normal. As I shifted from 4th to 5th (I'd guess I was around 55-60mph)...
  9. Porsche to stop making Manual transmissions!

    987 Cayman and Boxster Chat
    I don't know if you read the most recent Panorama magazine but there is a blurb in it about the upcoming 998 version of the 911 having 2 transmission choices, the PDK or a CVT and that Porsche would stop offering a manual transmission to meet gas mileage quotas and other restrictions. At first...
