  • Porsche Myths Busted: Car Insurance & N-rated Tyres

    There will be many eyes rolling at the title I'm sure and much has been written on many an internet forum on the topic of N-rated tyres.   But I'm not here to enter the murky depths of whether an N-rated tyre has a different rubber compound to it's non-rated equivalent, nor am I going to make any claims as to the performance differences and whether by not using N-rated tyres you will find yourself in a ditch one day.     Today, I'm focussing on something more specific, and answering th

    Cayman Market Watch Q2 2020

    Welcome to Q2 of the Cayman Market Watch, our regular feature primarily to provide you with a view of pricing on the Porsche Cayman market.  Aimed at helping those selling or buying to make more informed decisions on price.     Cayman 718      The not so new 4 cylinder turbo car introduced in 2016 seems to be a veritable bargain at the moment, prices for private sales of the base 2.0L car with average mileage and a few options are now around £28-30k.  Think what you

    Car Detailing Products at The Piston Works

    Have you ever noticed that online shops selling car detailing products are rather a clinical affair, unusually aimed squarely at those more interested in the process than the vehicle itself.  Well, we're glad to say those days are gone, no longer does the petrolhead find themselves scratching their head wondering the difference between a citrus pre-cleaner and an all purpose cleaner or 'APC'.       Ladies and Gentleman, we introduce The Piston Works Emporium, a brick and mort

    Well finally it’s arrived, you can now drive your favourite car whilst your P&J is tucked up in the garage.  Yes that’s right folks, on your games console (probably Xbox only).     Forza Horizon 4 has released screen shots of the latest edition to the game in the shape of a 718 GTS, looking pretty true to real life.       We look forward to hearing how it compares to the real thing and whether it’s been a faithful reproduction of the real thing.     Let us k

    The Slow Decay of Porsche Prices

    I suppose it's no surprise that like many a petrolhead, spending time cruising the classifieds is not a strange habit.  It could be likened in fact to a lady window shopping in her local designer outlet village and coming home with nothing but a receipt from Pret a Manger.  When you spend that much time hanging out in the classifieds and coupled with a bit of talk among those in the trade you start to gauge a picture.  So understanding the dynamics of used Porsche prices at the current time is n

    • Complete Porsche Colour Chart
      Happened across this website which appears to have just about every colour Porsche has ever used on their cars, quite cool to browse and perhaps a useful reference.

  • Overrevving - what does it mean?

    Hi all   I'm thinking of getting a 981 Cayman at some point in the near future - if I can fit at 6'5"!  However, I have seen in the buying guides to watch out for evidence of overrevving, and I'm confused.  Doesn't the Cayman have a rev limiter?  I understand this information can be found by querying the ECU, but surely the engine is protected from overrevving?  So what constitutes overrevving?  Is it accidentally hitting over a certain rpm during a late gear change or something more l

    Missing “non-existent” part in the trunk/boot 🤷🏻‍♂️

    Hi all,   Happy to join the forum as a new 987.1 owner!   I’m glad to have found an enthusiast’s car that has been absolutely lavished with care with only a few cosmetic issues.   One of these is a missing insert in the trunk. It snaps into a square hole in rear boot trim (987 555 251 00) and receives the stem of the knob (999 590 056 40) that holds the trim (987 551 651 01) covering the tail light access. Turning the knob 90 degrees looks it into this insert.

    Softronic - recent UK experiences

    Hi,   I am seriously considering Softronic tune after the catless headers go onto the R next month.   @Andrea gave me his experiences from a good few years ago (positive) Anyone had any recent experiences getting it directly from America.  The exchange rate is decent at the moment.   I think my main concern is how do they 'really' deal with the differences in fuel between the USA and UK.  It's further complicated by the fact here in Nth Ireland we get max. 97 R
