To those who wondered if our Cayman S AC system could handle extreme heat...I can tell you that it preformed wonderfully. I actually had to turn the temperature up from 70 to 71 because it was making me freeze!!!!!

It's good AC. Heck, I drive a Boxster, and in today's 111-degree heat (Sacramento) it was plenty cold. In fact, even with the top DOWN it was keeping my feet cold.

A/C has to work A LOT harder to cool a black interior than a sand beige one. Please, when you post this information tell us what color your interior is.

Mine is fine in Houston too. I have the black interior.


skup, do you get an annoying condensation streak on the windshield in front of the steering wheel? I do and it is a real pain. I'm guessing its just a result of the hummidity and the fact that it concentrates to strong of a blast of cold air on one point on the windshield.

I don't keep the air direction setting for the wind shield on - only the directed to the cabin on. I believe I had condensation when I had the winshield setting on. We should do a Houston get together. Sounds like a few Caymans in Houston.

Yes brothers. Add great AC to the list of Cayman attributes. We've had record breaking heat here for a week now and that AC kicks!



The unintended consequence is that there is now another reason I don't want to stop driving the CS!

If the A/C can adequately cool a black/black car in Houston in the summer, it's good enough for any car in any conditions.

I'd like to hear on this topic from one of our Phoenecian Caymanites. I am there often, in fact last week with some friends boating on a lake north of Scottsdale. Beatiful. And 116 degrees. I damn near died. /fckeditor/editor/images/smiley/MWPX/confused_smile.gif -Steve

My Seal/Black Cayman does just fine here in Phoenix. Drove from Phoenix to Tucson and return yesterday, 116 degrees, Np problem, even had to turn the AC from recirc to outside at less than 1/2 fan speed.

Just reached 118 degrees today and still climbing here in Redding (it's 1:10 pm) (for those of you unfamiliar with Redding it's in Northern Calif., about 100 miles south of Oregon) I have the sand Beige interior, and the a/c works great!

I too agree its great, the climate control has been fine at around 100 as were going through a heatwave here and you're right sometimes if anything it can get quite cold in the cabin.


Ps. my interior is Ocean/Sea Blue...

Add one to a fan of the AC (black interior). Works so much better than my 350z. I actually just leave it on the smallest fan setting (1 bar) so I don't get too cold.


Edit: and it's been 95-105 in Southern California the past week or so.

According to the newest factory mag, Christophorus, Porsche sales are up by a factor of 9 within 6 years, in the Middle East. That means that the A/C will easily work in even death valley (125F yesterday).



Party on, Garth ...
