Marv - have coffee, a bran muffin and some fruit and then finish the article. It's good. And those people are serious road trippers.

I picked up my (new-to-me) 2014 Cayman S two weeks ago, when the odometer read just over 2,600. By the end of tomorrow, I expect it'll have over 4,400 on the dial, just two weeks after getting it. And I took an entire week off on vacation with out it last week!

I don't understand people who buy these great driving cars--no, AWESOME driving cars--and leave them parked in their garages. I bought mine to drive and that's what I intend to do--smiles and all!

34,000 miles - 2013 base Carrera. Two sets of tires (due to flats both times). Full interior leather (Yachting Blue!) holding up super well. Two kids frequently sit at the back.

The only thing that really worries me is a gremlin I've had four or five times. On those occasions, at super low (idle) RPMs, the engine just stops. I restart, works for a while, then stops again. The solution is to really drive it for 20 mins or so on the highway and then the gremlin is gone. Scary when the stall happens in stop-and-go on the highway.

Overall though, such an amazing car. Still as happy as - maybe even more than - the first day I drove it. I just LOVE it. People say that material possessions don't bring as much happiness as experiences, but in this particular case, this material possession is an experience every time I use it.

Hepmonk--That's great and I totally agree with your last statement: "People say that material possessions don't bring as much happiness as experiences, but in this particular case, this material possession is an experience every time I use it."

What are the ages of your two kids who endure the back seat?

I hope I am not stating the obvious about your "Gremlin," but is it possible you are not aware of the Auto Start Stop Function (http://www.porscheownersmanuals.com/...-automatically)? I hope that's all it is...otherwise, what does Porsche have to say about your Gremlin (that's still under warranty)?

HelpMeHelpU, I've the Auto Stop/Start always turned off. If you search for the thread "My C4S Died During Morning Commute" on the _other_ 991 forum, you'll see what I mean. My Porsche dealer never sees the problem when I give it for servicing, they probably think I'm crazy (which I am, but I'm sure about this issue though).

My eldest is close to being a teenager now, so barely fits back there but doesn't complain much :-). I don't think I can shove them at the back much longer though.

Another thing: I love the glass sunroof, it's excellent, no problems so far. Still opens and closes nicely, the glass is still in good shape.

I just passed 15K miles. Car has been really fantastic with just 1 change over valve issue quickly repaired. One of the nicest Porsche cars I have owned.

Bought mine with 15k in January and have 28k on it now. No issues whatsoever and would have a few more thousand miles if I hadn't just added a new Golf R to the stable.

A fairly decent 12k+ per year. #1 on the reader board.

But surely someone has put more than 36,000 miles on their 991?

Where is LexVan going this week-end in that Cab? And how many miles will he have to drive with the top up? We should have a pool to guess the percentage top-down. Without looking at mid-west weather....
