  1. Yesterday
  2. I have developed a option code list for the the 2011 Cayman. I am sure it applies to other years also. Just added sorted list make it a little easier. Full 2011 Cayman Option Codes.pdf Full 2011 Cayman Option Codes sorted a-z.pdf
  3. Version 1.0.0


    I have worked up a full option code list for the 2011 Porsche Cayman.
  4. Thanks all, grateful for advice ..... im off to see one tomorrow evening , 3.4 gen 1. owned by an enthusiast
  5. I’m unfortunately having to put my 987s up for sale. Way over your miles as it’s 119,000! But has been lovingly looked after, oil changes every 6 months for the last couple of years, new clutch, fly wheel and rear main seal last year, just passed its MOT no faults. Can send pics of you’re interested
  6. Last week
  7. Hi Tom, great idea for a 50th! By the sounds you've not driven many; might I suggest you make that a priority, that's how you'll work out which models engines etc you like, what a nice tight car feels like against a not so fine example etc. And of course it's good fun! My gen 1 CS has been 3 + yrs of faultless fun on the road and track, nearly 100K km and still puts a smile on my face. The 2.9 isnt far behind, and the 2.7 is a fine lump too. PDK and manual are 2 different beasts as well. Budget for some work on whatever you buy, whether straight away or a bit down the track (you may get bitten by the mod bug as some of us do!) . Good luck with the search
  8. Hi Tom and welcome, Happy impending birthday! I've not driven a 3.4 gen1, so can't comment, but my 2.9 is adequate for me, fast enough. Depends what you are used to. The market is strong after Lockdown, so prices are high and supply low. With these cars it's all about the maintenance, you want to be seeing a stack of bills to show the common problems have been fixed. Watch my YouTube about some of the common issues: For example mine is an 09 with 54k miles, it was £18k, but I've had to put £1500 into it in repairs this last 18months. Alternatively for no hassle consider a new one. £10500 deposit 3 years £331 a month on a PCP. Obviously that's the flat 4 turbo, so the flat 6 howl is missing....
  9. That Cayman is almost like an 'Old English White' colour.
  10. MG midget was my first car. That was red as well. Really tiny car for a 6ft 2 guy. Bought it when I was 15 and rebuilt with my dad. Really got the hang of filler and taught myself to spray.
  11. I’m not loving that colour...maybe on an MG Midget..
  12. Gen 1 987s thats had an engine rebuild and a few choice mods is a good option. Love mine..
  13. PTS maybe......but yeah that is bad however i have seen much worse . Have you ever seen a person buy a yellow car.....and i mean a person the REALLY likes a yellow car ,what they cant get from the factory they unbolt a paint yellow
  14. Not an expert but I own a gen2 2.9. with PDK. I believe gen 2 pdk is similar performance as gen 1 S. The S has greater torque but the 2.9 with PDK changes gear quick and makes up for lower torque value.
  15. HI, I am looking to buy a Cayman, my budget is circa £17.5k (i am 50 in 3 weeks , this is a gift to me for me 🙂 I am looking for a 987, my ideal is a gen 2 but i think my budget is tight. If i opt for a gen 1 then it has to be 3.4 as i would only regret it after 3 weeks of purchase (hindsight, wish i had written a book about it). Simply put any advice, comments on what to look out for would be more than welcome, i have seen these 2 as a starter for 10 but i have that nagging 'will i wish i had gone for the 3.4 gen 1 over a 2.9 gen 2' https://www.autotrader.co.uk/classified/advert/202007231608550?sort=distance&onesearchad=New&onesearchad=Nearly New&onesearchad=Used&model=CAYMAN&price-from=500&postcode=bn176gz&make=PORSCHE&radius=1500&price-to=17000&advertising-location=at_cars&page=1 https://www.autotrader.co.uk/classified/advert/202008032047172?sort=distance&onesearchad=New&onesearchad=Nearly New&onesearchad=Used&model=CAYMAN&price-from=500&postcode=bn176gz&make=PORSCHE&radius=1500&price-to=17000&advertising-location=at_cars&page=1 Thanks in advance
  16. Having had the Michelin PS and recently the PS4's fitted to my car.... although not a Cayman.... I cannot recommend them enough, the level of grip and general all round performance is fantastic, and well worth the money. I don't think I would put anything else on my car now.
  17. Yeah the advert seems to have been taken down, but here is the picture from my Instagram
  18. the porsche factory offers some bad colors too imho in many models
  19. I think that means it has sold 👀 Holy mother of God, have people no taste 🤣
  20. the link just shows an ad but not that car
  21. I think that colours called “ awful” or it could be “ bloody awful”
  22. Have you seen this one chaps? It's beige?! http://www.autotrader.co.uk/classified/advert/202007231589499?atmobcid=soc3 What's that colour called, or is it a customer special order? Not my taste at all, doesn't show off the curves at all. Rich
  23. As the others have said...when I 1st picked up my CS, it had old ish PS2's on the front, and Bridgestone RE050's on the rear (both N rated)....due to a blow out at an inopportune time, I've ended up with split Michelin's; PS4 on the front , SuperSport on the rear (neither are N rated). Improvement in ride and handling was material. And they manage 2-3 track days a year without issue as well.
  24. The 2.7 is by far the better buy, on paper at least. It has decent power and a more reliable engine. My issue is that when I plant my right foot I want a bit of drama. If you go for a low mileage 987.1 you should be ok. I had mine checked at 40K and it was completely free bore score free. My head said 2.7, my heart said 3.4. I think my heart got it right.
  25. Cayman revelation: It's the ultimate pizza delivery car! I should copy right that before some millennial YouTube steals it. I'm using the Cayman as a daily for a couple of days before Castle Combe and shock horror my local pizza shop have started charging for delivery. Being a tight ass, I didn't fancy paying the whopping £2.50 for delivery, so did the logical thing. Get the jack out, increased the front ride height, folded myself into the bucket seats, put the harnesses on and carefully negotiated the maze of speed humps at 2mph to the shop. Much to the annoyance of the junior estate agent (I'm guessing) in the black BMW 1 series behind. Turns out the roll cage and engine cover net is perfect for securing a pizza box, keeping it perfectly level and importantly, hot. Pizza stayed in the centre of the box, didn't touch the edges at all. So if work takes a downward turn, I now know I have the ultimate pizza delivery car.
