I thought i'd give an update on a few changes we're introducing to the OC and how things have progressed over the last 12 months or so.
We're really proud of how the OC has grown, we started out in November 2015 as some of you will remember, and today marks our 3 year anniversary (Happy birthday to us!!). The team have worked hard to grow the club and with valued member support we now have over 1,500 members which is fantastic. The OC meets and events are steadily growing in popularity, the forums are an active source of information and a great social experience and something to be really proud of. So thank you to all who contribute to this experience.
With success comes challenges, how we manage the forum and keep content and user experience ahead off the game is important to the team, and with increased activity on the forums requires better infrastructure, more bandwidth and storage space. It will be no surprise that these all come at a cost to the OC. We discussed increasing advertising on the website, member subscriptions and other ways to help the running of the OC, but at the same time very conscious that we do not want a website full of adverts ruining members experience. We also decided that forcing members to pay to join was not where we wanted to be either. So, as of today we are introducing membership options which will provide 3 tiers of membership each with their own benefits and ensure we do not limit the experience to anybody.
Standard Membership will be free, it will allow use of the forum in much the same way as now, albeit with limited functions which generally are those that require using storage space on the servers such as gallery uploads, forum signatures etc.
Premium Membership, will be an enhanced package that will include among other things, access all areas, free classified adverts, newsletter and some goodies!
Platinum Membership will be the top tier and will provide members with exclusive benefits and goodies and less visible adverts when using the website and forum.
We will no longer be offering advert free subscriptions to the site, those that have paid for a year will continue with advert free until their subscription expires.
If you are currently a Club Contributor, you will be moved to Premium Member with a complimentary first year membership for free.
More details of the membership options are available here
Any questions, feel free to get in touch with myself, or any of the team.
So, next Breakfast Meet is set!
25th of November, from 9:30am although i'll probably aim for 9am.
Location is a cracker one that @Andy suggested and by pure coincidence Nick from TIPEC (some of you may have met him at Shuttleworth, and previously at the Sausage) also mentioned to me today they also have a crowd going the same day and suggested a double date.
The location is Caffeine & Machine, Ettington CV37 7NS.
I'm quite excited about the venue, and would recommend checking out their website:
Who's up for it?? Could do with an idea of numbers, we need to book space.
A Porsche only day arranged every year for the past 18/19 years by a couple of guys on the PCGB RS register.
I went this year and it was a brilliant event - a really good atmosphere and sense of camaraderie. Was great to watch 6 Cayman Rs all playing together (every time they overtook me - I was captain slow as it was my first track event in the CS).
Its not just for ‘classic’ RS cars, all Porsche models welcomed - there was even a 911 cup car doing shakedowns on the day with a full race support team.
Will be advertised openly on MSVTs website in the next few weeks.
Pre-sale places available now to previous years participants.
Well the rumours are becoming more beefed up in regard to the possibility of the Cayman T following it's the footsteps of it's larger brother, the Carrera T. It could also go someway towards bringing back some of what Porsche gave us with the 987 Cayman R and have never really delivered on again either with the 981 or 718, the GTS being a bit soft and the GT4 being a bit, well GT.
Our favorite mid-engined coupe from Stuttgart will be going under the knife and and our sources suggest that the Cayman T will be losing c. 30kg over the standard 718 and gaining 10-20hp more making for a slightly keener drive, but falling a bit short of the GTS in the power stakes.
The Cayman T will be introduced as a 2019 model year car, although deliveries falling quite late into the year with the first likely to hit the UK roads in early summer.
Sitting just above the 718 S but below the GTS, the Cayman T will come with a sports exhaust system, and 20-inch alloy wheels. It will also get 20 mm closer to the ground. The Sport Chrono Package is expected to be offered as standard which includes Porsche Active Driveline Mounts and launch control. The manual gearbox optioned models will come equipped with a rev-matching function.
The Cayman T is expected to include the following specification
- 20 inch wheels
- 20 mm lower ride height
- Sports Chrono Pack with Porsche Active Driveline Mounts
- Launch Control
- Rev Matching function (Manual)
- Infotainment Delete
- Lightweight Glass
- Fabric Door Pulls
- Lightweight Seats
