Porsche was deliberate with the 981 Spyder to make it an outstanding road car, not track car. Giving it the X73 suspension did just that. There is no X73 option for the 982 so undoubtedly Porsche...

once they stop flexing on the price, get them to toss in a clear wrap to seal the deal, which costs them far less than it would cost you...

A guy in my neighborhood does lol. I just own a 991 and GT4 so I'm definitely beneath him

It'll say Boxster Spyder or just Spyder. If Porsche puts 718 on it then they are just stupid as the whole idea of the 718 marketing revolved around tying the 982 to a 4 cylinder past. Hopefully...

Anyone experience any 1st to 2nd grinds especially if turning while shifting? One thing I noticed with my Cayman R, 981 Spyder and now the GT4 is that the car can grind during 1st to 2nd shifts at...

Porsche quickened the R's throttle response over the Cayman S of the same year, which makes it feel much quicker (and is) than the mere 10 hp difference would have you believe. It's one of its...

When I bought my R there were quite a few to choose from. These days there aren't and because they're getting older it's getting harder to find a barely used mint one, especially one that isn't bare...

Amen. Germans are rules following extremists; most American drivers are the opposite less perhaps the extremely conservative. Driver training in the US is nothing compared to the long course and...

Have you weighed your car? The T is only 55 pounds lighter than a GTS, which isn't significant. Porsche claims the T's curb weight is 3142 for a manual and 3186 for PDK. I do agree with not...

Interestingly I haven't taken any pics of it yet. Just kind of realized that. I'll take some. It's sapphire blue with full leather/alcantara interior and yellow deviated stitching, LWBs w/yellow...

You can't just look at prices and discern anything. Check prices against the original MSRP and you'll see most dealers are selling CPO GT4s for very close to the original MSRP, at least low mileage...

No quality tire is that fragile unless it was defective, overinflated, or the impact was much greater than described. "Gently" touching a curb is exponentially less abusive than hitting moderate...

Boxsters are more popular than Caymans so you should find more Boxsters out there since more were imported. Timing is everything. Wait long enough and you'll find whatever you're looking for. ...

I wish I could go back. I work for a world-wide organization and we have a presence there, but my job keeps me here at the moment. German summers are fantastic (sun sets as late as 11pm), but the...

Porsche not built for German roads? Maybe the most incorrect assumption I've read on any car forum. You've evidently never driven in Germany. You think the autobahns are straight flat boring...

Got my car back from the dealer for its second time now. All seems good. During the installation of my gearbox, somehow the coolant line/s were crimped. They had to order a new line and clamps...

Probably the best response. Don't turn the 981 into a stiff unforgiving car, that's less road worthy. The 987 is still in my estimation the best road going Boxster/Cayman for driving enjoyment. Only...

I've done coilovers and springs (KW typically) and sways over the years and honestly the end result is usually a harsh non-compliant ride. I know me and many others harp on X73 but there simply isn't...

Germans have a completely different approach to most everything. They are far more responsible in their decision making, and TUV standards are much higher than here. The fact that FVD (German...

I went from a '09 997 S PDK to a '14 981 S PDK. PDK is better in the 991/981. The motor definitely felt softer in the 981 but that's comparing the 3.8 to the 3.4, not the 3.6 to the 3.4 as in your...
