There should not be any clunk when releasing the brake, especially if it occurs consistently. I would check the caliper bolts to be sure they are tight. Probably a good idea to change brake pads as...

You can always use spacers to increase track. My car has -2.3 all around with spacers and camber plates. I find that this gives good even wear with R-compound tires. To run Hoosiers or other slicks...

FWIW I have a base Cayman, which now has over 100 track days. It does exactly what you describe: teaches you how to be the best driver possible. Enjoy in good health!

You can get the camber you want with camber plates. MUCH cheaper option than LCAs. I have Tarett plates on my 981 Cayman giving 2.3 degrees negative camber all around. Excellent for track use (my...

The engine oil capacity per the manual is 10 liters, however, not all of it drains out during an oil change. You only need to replace 7.5 liters. Hence the tendency to overfill by 2.5 l.

Good get! I have a base 981 Cayman with X73 (added after purchase) and no other OEM options. I love the simplicity of it.

There is a U shaped mounting bracket on the transmission. Be sure the cable hasn’t slipped out of the bracket.

I like the simplicity of the build. You can easily get a good aftermarket exhaust or add the PSE if adjustability is a must have.

CPO is worth a couple thousand. You are getting a 4 year old...

They should have performed a pressurized dye test to find the leak. Make them show you. All the hoses did not wear out. Likely one is damaged or the leak is from a condenser perforation, or a bad...

Looks like a potential maintenance nightmare in the making. That battery thing would really worry me. There are base Caymans, even 2009+ with better motors and less mileage for another $10-15K. I’d...

Sounds like user error or a problem with your bushings. My Cayman is tight and turns in like nobody’s business.

You could max out the camber on your current suspension and see if it helps. You...

You can add X73 and PSE after the fact, although I would just get a good aftermarket exhaust rather than PSE, which seems too artificial to my ears.

The base steering wheel works great with a...

I have a base Cayman and the steering (and clutch) is heavier than the average modern car. Personally I strongly prefer the heavier feel and I suspect you may get used to it eventually. The more...

Are you certain the battery is good and fully charged? This sort of flakiness is typical of battery problems.

It’s probably not rebuildable. A used drop in replacement engine could probably be installed by an independent shop for ~10k.

I also love the Sport Techno’s. But I would get some cheaper OZ racing wheels for the track. The Techno’s are too nice to mess up with baked on brake dust.
