  1. Hi everybody! Name's Roma, i'm n00b I always dreamed of having cayman, cuz mid-engined perfection, n/a revving engine etc. I earn 2.5 grand, don't have mortgage/kids, so i can spend big part of my salary on a hobby. And here is why i'm telling this. I can buy cayman s 987 gen1 (2006-2007) - it costs approx. 20k in russia. I scavenge forums for an info about engine reliability. Our top russian porsche forum has many coolstories about 3.4 engine failures - scratches on cylinder walls (don't know how to say it in english), low performance of lubrication and cooling system. But no youtube videos like 'how to buy a used cayman or boxster' address this issue - and porsches are in top in reliability charts. So i assume it's all just forum scary stories and it's much more reliable than STI or BRZ i own now. So is the probability of engine failure really that high as our forum says? I don't want to give up on my dream and regret the rest of my life. Thanks in advance!
