  • 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

    718 Cayman now available on your games console!

    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

  • First attempt at front grills Mesh

    After 1 week of ownership I’d found a lot of leaves and crap in the front by the condensers which took a while to clear out, I’ve had a first go at adding DIY mesh grills. Should see us through the winter then I think bumper off next year to do a more pro looking job. The £100+ cost of the bendy mesh seems a bit much so I gave it a go with 8mm semi rigid plastic mesh for <£10. Cardboard template then cut the mesh with scissors.. cable ties and job done. I found: 1) Smaller mesh woul

    Mortimers Prestige - Any Experience

    Hi All,   Going to look at a 987.2 tomorrow - they seem to have good reviews but thought i'd ask if anyone has experience?   Is it worth getting an independent PPI for a Porsche dealer like these?   thoughts greatly appreciated.

    Radiator Coolant Vent Line

    Hi all, I discovered a coolant leak coming from the O/S front wheel arch recently, instantly thought it must be one of the infamous coolant hoses finally giving up the ghost (I've replaced one on the N/S previously, but not all of them yet) but on closer inspection it turns out to be leaking at a connection of what I believe to be the radiator coolant vent line.  Not sure why its suddenly started to leak but seems to be very loose fitting on the metal pipe it joins to - feels like a seal / O rin
