    I wanted to pen a small note, i'm not normally the most vocal member of CaymanOC but rest assured that behind the scenes i'm very much aware of the inner workings and the time that people have so far put in to getting this thing off the ground. I won't rest on my laurels just yet as we're far from 'out there' but i'm truly heartened by the number of members we have so far even if it appears at first glance to be modest in comparison to some, it shouldn't be forgotten the short space of time we've been in existence. It was remise of us to not explain in the beginning some of the detail of the forum staff and member groups we have in place currently, so without further ado I'm Tom, I perform the majority of Admin duties for CaymanOC and more importantly Uncle Dave who you will have seen far more than I and performs the day-to-day moderation duties on the front end of the forum. There are others the forum recognises, those who we like to refer to as 'Founder Members' who have contributed, some financially, some with time, some with their services and some for answering a call to action for supporting a new venture. They will remain forever more as the grandfathers of CaymanOC, marked by the green forum group type face. Going forward we are aware that certain members will want to contribute to the club over time, putting in their personal time to the running of things, offering valuable services and for the crazy few offering to become part of the moderation/staff team as the membership grows. Its goes without saying, but we are hugely appreciative of any support and we will recognise any contribution you make. Some of you will be aware that running an owners club and forum requires not only time but also money, so far this has been provided by the Team and will continue to be the case (panic not). In time as membership grows we will look to bring carefully selected advertising on to the site to help support these running costs. We are also offering members the ability to make donations (however small) if you so wish, I would like to stress this is in no way a compulsory requirement and it never will be. Those members who make a contribution (as some of you already have - thank you!) will be recognised with a VIP badge and 'Club Contributor' applied to their profile, and all donations over £5 will additionally receive a CaymanOC sticker (pending delivery!). As and when things change in the future we will let you know, but thanks again for everything Cheers Tom

    As the thread title says, new(ish) member, I registered six or so months ago but haven't posted, so hello! My car will be known on here though, it used to belong to Nis200K, who I managed to stalk/get in touch with when I saw the CaymanOC sticker in the window and found his for sale thread on here, albeit after I'd bought the car from the dealer he PX'd it to. We've exchanged a few messages and he's been very helpful, and the car is a credit to his ownership. It's a 2010 987.2 Cayman S PDK Sport Chrono Plus with 19" Carrera 2 alloys, Bi Xenons, Bose, Cruise Control, Rear Parking Sensors, Embossed Seats and Arm Rest. It's the first Porsche I've owned, and I love it! The poise and balance of the car are amazing, I love the noise from behind my head. It still feels special getting into it, and I still turn and look back as I walk away from it. It's booked in for it's MOT and fourth service next week, and I'm having the inspection done to put it back under warranty. Anyway, here's some pics from the day I picked it up, and just after I got it.

    Gunning it round the alps that’s where! ? So I have absolutely decided that the M5 is not anywhere near as fun as my Cayman (s) have been up in the mountain roads. The long journey down however was definitely best done in the M5 - horses for courses. Speaking of horses, I saw Donkey sausages in a supermarket in Lake Como today...yes Donkey! I did a route through the Black Forest, different than I’ve done before but I recommend it, lovely smooth roads! Started in Baden-Baden, the first overnight stop, and head south from there on the 500 to Freudenstadt, 294 from there, pick up the 33 and back on the 500 into Triberg. Followed the 500 practically to the Swiss border from there with a few back roads taken for a bit of fun. I won’t cover all the usual passes, they’re very well covered elsewhere and in fact in previous threads of mine. Suffice to say, I have discovered that working with a map and going off the beaten track is a lot of fun and often rewards with lesser used roads and ultimately less traffic. One should not be afraid to travel in this way by planning their own route. One thing i’ve learnt is a trip up Stelvio in the middle of summer is just not fun, full of cyclists, camper vans and slow tourists, aside from that I think it’s generally an overrated experience as the passes go, but still many so called tour guides keep this on the itinerary, because of its fame. I know of some that now don’t cover it at all. We stayed in Menaggio on the western shore of Lake Como for a good few days and was a good base to get up into the mountains but also to enjoy the sights and sounds of the Lake and generally some days relaxing by the pool! It’s a beautiful place. Taking a drive out to the north east from Tirano, across the Swiss border (beware the Swiss draconian enforcement of their speed limits!) over to St Moritz covered a part of the Bernina pass i’d not yet driven and was a fabulous piece of road. Tirano is a lovely town and has some very interesting historic architecture and is the start of the famous Bernina Express. The road up beyond 1,000m elevation becomes wonderfully technical and some great compound bends with elevation to negotiate, often well sighted and good surface. The views just before the summit of Piz Bernina are better than from the summit. For info, just before the summit you can hang a right on a fantastic piece of road into Livigno. I’ve done this on previous trip and it’s highly recommended. Lake Livigno is beautiful and the petrol is super cheap (tax haven), keep going from Livigno and the Munt la Schera tunnel is like no other in the Alps and brings you out a stones throw from Stelvio if you really want to. From Piz Bernina (2,300m) you travel down a fantastic gently winding fairly fast pass road, into St Moritz. The views of the lakes are breathtaking here and the road follows the shore until you get to Majola and take the Majola Pass down out and back into Italy at the bottom. We did Majola Pass in reverse on the Sunday before and it was a bit too busy, the same piece of road on the Tuesday was basically empty - bliss! All in all, another very enjoyable trip in the alps. I would next time avoid the holiday season as it is so much busier both on the roads and off. Aside from the apartment in Menaggio hotels are easily found at short notice (even in peak season) and are very reasonably priced, as was the Eurotunnel. Time we arranged an OC group trip ?

    Hey All Just wanted to introduce myself, I picked up a Cayman on the weekend after spending the last few months trying to find the perfect car! This forum was extremely helpful with so many tips of what to look out for, big thanks! In the end, I went with a 2009 Gen 2 Cayman S PDK with 56k on the clock from the guys at Ashgood near Heathrow T5. Really fabulous service, can't recommend them highly enough! Its such a raw and thrilling drive - feels like a grown-up version of my 1987 MK1 MR2! love it! Look forward to contributing to this great forum! Thanks, All - Peace!

    This story begins with a dream. A dream to have loud noises, more hp and shiney new car parts. Some of this came true but let's take you through the story that is. Replacing stock manifolds with high flow cats (sold to the misses because the gasket on one side started leaking so obviously both might as well be done and an upgrade should happen at the same time to save money....) As Google will tell you and from what you can gather when a indie specialist wants nearly 1k to do it. Replacing the manifolds on these is a bit of a pitta. Mainly due to the inevitable blackboard scratching sounds that is the snapping of the manifold bolts into the block on removal. So knowing the issues and that it's almost definitely going to happen after looking at the brown crusty goodness that was currently holding them in place. I went ahead an ordered a Stomski racing drilling jig from Porsche Shop UK. Now it is an expensive bit of kit for what it is. However if I didn't have it I wouldn't be writing this post as I'd have already been signed into the local institute not knowing what way was up anymore. So the kit is very comprehensive. Comes with everything you will need to do the job of drilling out the snapped studs including a tap to chase any holes you don't get the old thread out from. Everything is very high quality and very well presented. So onto the job. Removing the rear section of the exhaust was the first job. And even though I'd had the fixings replaced when I had the 2nd cats deleted these were still heavily corroded and wouldn't budge. Managed to get a couple off but some took brute force and some help from Mr angle and Mrs grinder to cut them loose. Next after a day spent dealing with that we move onto the money shot. All manifold bolts had been sprayed with PB Blaster over the past month and just before starting had been left overnight drenched in the stuff. Pretty much bathed in it myself by the end of this. So onto the drivers side. And amazingly 1st....2nd....3rd....4th....5th and..... Ahhh dam it 6th bolt snapped but all others came out without an issue. Thought I was some sort of god when all 5 came out before with no issues but alas that was not the case. So out comes the gold plated disco jig to the rescue. As described everything lined up perfectly. Bushings went on great and everything was set to go. All I can say is measure twice cut once when drilling out these bolts as one wrong move and suddenly you need a full engine rebuilt. So onto drilling, plenty of lube is needed.... (giggidy) to keep everything cool and free moving. The kit comes with some carbide drill bits which is a nice touch and very good quality. So after about 30mins of backing it in and out to let the swarf fall from the chamber the pilot hole was done. Ooo nice and central. So now you move onto the bigger drill to take out the remaining material up to the thread. Same procedure with mounting the fixture and just swapping the bushing out. Oft sexy as a drilled hole can get there. Then grab some needle nose pliars and pull the remaining material out the hole. Replace all of the bolts with stainless studs and that's one side done. Onto the other side thinking it will be much like the first and bang. First bolt snapped..... Pop second bolt snapped then a 3rd and a 4th... By this point life itself is exiting my body wondering wtf I'm going to do if they all go. With a bit of swearing at the last two and a sturn talking to the last two bolts did come out fine. So 4 more snapped bolts to do then. Out comes the jig and the same process on the first two without a hitch. Then thinking it's all going well and I will be racing around on my new exhausts to the local mcds later tonight with a big grin knwokng I've done it myself and saved tons of cash doing so..... Bang..... Whoops bugger...... Rushed it and Pushed to hard without enough lube.... Sooo at that point I wanted to cry. Gone were the dreams of mcds and exhaust tones and more of regret and annoyance at what a pleb I'd been. Saving grace was at least the snapped bit came out but I'm now having to order move drill bits hoping the quality is the same or as close as. And 3/16 bits aren't the easiest to come by in the UK I've now found out. So to at least try and cheer myself up I did test mount the other side. All looking good and lining up as it should. But the other side will have to wait a few days now to be fully complete. And as this was done on Jack stands in a garage I'm glad to be giving my back a break for a few days. Would have been a doddle on a lift in comparison. Will also be putting on new lambda sensors as trying to get the old ones off wasn't happening either. 🤣 Sooo people wanting to follow the story can follow me on Instagram: @that_purple_cayman And I will try and keep this thread updated with the progress.

    Hi All, I'm not connected at all with the attached company, but i just wanted to share my experience with buying my Cayman S from them. I had a look at 2 at other dealers before seeing mine on their website; https://www.renaissance-classics.co.uk/ Both i looked at were decent enough cars, but both needed work, and both needed a dam good detailing. When i turned up at Renaissance, i was greeted by Graham the general Manager and he took me to the detailing bay were my future Porsche was sat. Sat there, waxed, detailed, looking absolutely like the day it came out of the showroom, i made my mind up within 10 seconds i was having the car (obviously i didn't tell Graham this 😀). On the test drive, unfortunately it couldn't have gone any worse for Graham. Just 1 mile down the road the car slowly died.....everything electrical failing......battery = dead. We parked up the car, with Graham absolutely apologizing until we walked back to the dealership. On the way back i had in my mind my absolute limit budget wise, got back to the showroom (Graham still distraught that the test drive had failed), but it really didn't matter as i knew it would be sorted for me. We agreed a deal and i put a deposit on it there and then. After Christmas i picked it up, but before picking it up, James the Sales Manager called me to let me know they had checked the bores and everything was fine that way, put a service on it, did their own 130 point check, put new front tyres (matching the rears), new battery and new alternator (the culprit on the test drive). They also put a fresh MOT on it (despite it only 3 months prior it had a new MOT). On the day i picked it up, James and Dave (the service manager) were nothing short of superb. Went through the car in its entirety, had it under cover in the middle of the showroom, and unveiled it to me.....looking just as good as it did on the day i viewed it. Ready to go home, i was presented with a little goodie bag full of wine / luxury honey / some other bits and bobs from local producers in their area.....a really nice touch. 6 month warranty covered by themselves direct. Took it home and everything was well for the first 800 miles. Then i noticed a tapping sound once warm, and made a soundclip and sent it to James. Dave called me to say "we want to bring the car back to check it out" Arranged a day for them to come and collect it the following week with their professional car carrying trailer and off it went. Dave and the team had diagnosed the car within 24 hours of getting it back, and it turned out to be worn / marked tappets on bank 2. Not only did they replace ALL the tappets / lifters, they also replaced two slightly cracked coils (we they noticed when disconnecting to take the head off), also replaced the oil separator, new coils, new head gaskets, new and fresh mobil 1 oil.......and hurrah....problem fixed 😎 I decided to go down on the train to pick the car up (as fancied the drive back again from Surrey to Lincoln).....there it was, gleaming and detailed once again. James went through what had been done, and they also checked the pistons, bores, cams etc and all is well here too....so i'm in full confidence my engine is in perfect condition. All in all, having experienced the worst dealer where we bought my wife's Mini Cooper S from, i then experienced the best dealer I've ever bought a car from.....Renaissance Classic Cars. I cannot recommend them enough, friendly, professional, and superb aftercare....i would certainly have no issues buying another car from them. Cheers for reading. Dan

    So, I've created a photoshop "Vision1" of my car and how it will look in the end. Actual mods are catless long manifolds and custom tune. Car is running 345bhp on a dynodinamic rolling road (they read low). I have already installed a Heigo cage, sparco bucket seats and 6 point harness. In the future other mods will be LCA shimmed, adjustable dropping links, sway bars, adjustable toe arms, 3rd radiator and so on... For now enjoy the render, hope you like it!

    Well Rubytoo is home and been introduced to Ruby! What a car! Love it to bits already. Not sure how the 981 Boxster and this can feel so different when they are fundamentally the same car. This is raw and exciting every second, regardless of if you are pootling around or ragging it. It is about as fast as you could ever need and whilst the handling and traction is amazing you still see the TC light flashing when I don’t think I once saw that in the Boxster. Another 65bhp and 80kg less really make the difference. The ride is firm but makes it feel special because of it. The LSD can really be noticed and I am gonna have to relearn my driving approach to counter the understeer it creates (defo a trip to Chris Franklin is on the cards!). The brakes are immense with a great feel and firm pedal. Flicking through the history and it appears a 997GT3 master cylinder was fitted a few years back. Maybe that has something to do with it. The noise is lovely but without the PSE I think it could be a bit more from outside so may take a road trip to Carnewal in Belgium for one of their modded standard CR exhausts. The carbon seats are things of beauty and again sitting in them makes it feel special. It deffo feels and drives like a baby GT3! Feeling guilty after getting the 3.2 out of the garage for some photos I took her for a spin. Never fear. My love for that car is still well and truly intact. Just feels so right. A perfect complement to the CR in my book. Which one to the Alps next June? Not sure at the moment. Let’s see 😊

    Just back from a track day with Circuit Days. My first trip out there, and, what a place. The circuit is pretty daunting, I can see why it's nicknamed the green hell. Confidence grew as the day went on, the 100s of laps on the PS4 really started to pay off and the car came alive. I'll post a bit more detail about the day later but for now here are some pics.

    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. T.

    Hi Guys, Thought I'd let you see my amateur YouTubing, started off with a couple of Cayman videos: Hoping to do some more DIYs in the future, would value some constructive feedback, but its a bit of fun not a full time job. I dont narrate them as I have a rubbish voice for it, would need a voiceover artist.. Cheers Rich

    Hi, As I design cars for living I thought would be nice to design a proper ducktail for my 987. I don't really like what's on the market right now so here is my proposal. If someone is interested or has skills and wants to make one out of fibreglass/carbonfibre for himself/herself then get in touch please. What's your thoughts about it? Do you like it? Andrea

    Just remember guys, going out for just a drive isn't advisable with the guidence that has been put out. If you have an accident then all you are going to be doing is taking the much needed resource from the NHS and other services, then likely to be slapped with a fine from the Police as well.

    Once you've seen one ring lap, you've pretty much seen them all. But chasing this GT4 was great fun, shame there was so much traffic and no one wanted to get out of the way. Still sub 9 though. 😎

    I bought some decals from https://www.designstuffonline.co.uk/vehicle_graphics/model_make_specific/porsche/porsche_987_cayman_decals.html They went on really well but I would do it slightly different if I did it again... They are longer than they need to be and you cut them when they reach the door, I would leave maybe 15mm surplus so you can wrap it right round and back the door skin, you can get your fingers to it when you open the door, same for the bumper side. In the videos they cut then down the middle in the gap and push them in..this doesn't give much adhesion around a bend, good idea to warm them up at this point with a hair dryer too..makes the glue stick better. Above all clean the car really well and make sure there is no dust on it at all after washing it, it needs to be spotless!!!...and take your time. I didn't want to do the front bumper part as my car was fitted with a 3M film bra from new and it would have to go over this.

    So a few months ago I was on the hunt for some new tyres after my existing Eagle F1s had capitulated to the track and road abuse. Having never heard a bad word said about them, I set my sights on some Michelin Pilot Sport 4S. Unfortunately, these were unavailable until at least the 10th May, and my back up choice of Michelin Cup 2s were also unavailable. This was pretty frustrating because I had a trip to the Nurburgring in the diary and needed some fresh rubber ASAP. After having a good look around at the usual alternatives someone mentioned that Goodyear had released a new range of tyres to compete with Michelin MPS4S, Cup 2 and Cup 2 R. I looked around and couldn’t find many reviews (like almost none) but decided to take a punt assuming Goodyear will have done their homework and produced some good rubber. I managed to source a set of Eagle F1 Supersports from Mytyres.com and duly had them fitted just before heading over to Germany. I have now covered 3000 miles or so on them, including 4 track days (Nurburgring, Anglesey, Snetterton, Bedford) so I thought I'd share my experience. So what are they like? Well, I think they are excellent. So much more more grip and feel over the Eagle F1 that was on the car before, and the Pirelli P Zeros that were so bad I sold them after only a few hundred miles. Now I’m no expert so forgive me if my description isn’t very technical but I found they transformed the front end of the car in terms of both grip and the speed at which the car changes direction. Along with that, the rear end was much more planted on corner exit whilst on the power, traction control was much less active than usual (switched off, but still on in the background). I also enjoyed how much communication there was through both the steering and the back end. I could feel in much more detail when I was asking too much of the front end (or not enough) and when the rear was struggling the slip was very progressive and predictable. Wet grip is also another strong point with these. Having recently driven to Anglesey in the pouring rain they offered substantially more grip than the tyres they replaced. I’ve also been very impressed with the wear rate, the front and rears still have approx 6mm of tread remaining! Witchcraft! In terms of hard data for comparison I can compare the times I set on the Eagle F1 standard tyre and new Eagle F1 Supersport on the Bedford GT circuit. The lap times below were set on different days but in similar conditions. The car hadn’t been modified between sessions. Best lap time on standard Eagle F1 tyres 2:55.53 Best lap time on Eagle F1 Supersport tyres 2:51.11 Even I was surprised to the amount of time I gained here. In fact there was even more time to be had as the 2:51.11 was set with some traffic on track so I’d expect that time to come down even further with a clear run. In conclusion I have been mightily impressed with these tyres, not only in terms of wet and dry grip but in wear rate as well. So if anyone is thinking about new tyres and wants to try the Super Sports I’d highly recommend them. Price wise I believe they are around £100 cheaper than the MPS4S (based on 235/35/19 + 265/35/19)

    I've recently designed some stainless steel brackets for my Sparco bucket seats. One version bolts onto the existing rails and another version bolts onto the chassis directly. Was a fun little project and I if someone wants a set made just give me a shout. I'll add more images of the final installation this weekend. These work on the 987/997/981/991 platforms. The ones bolted on the floor are for people roughly 5"8 to 5"11, the seat base is almost touching the chassis tho! So a very low position and I'm fully "engaged" with the car. The ones bolted onto the OEM rails place the seat (depends on your bucket seat) at similar height as the OEM Sport Seats, using 996 GT3 low profile rails one could achieve a lower seating position while retaining the sliding function. Hope you like them!

    Hi Maxheadroom, The North Coast 500 is a fabulous drive in your Cayman. I've done the route 3 times and know it well. You asked about petrol stations, so here are a few tips on some other aspects as well. 1. Do the route anti-clockwise. That is from Inverness north on the A9 to John 'o Groats and Thurso. The reason for that, is you are leaving the best until last. A coffee stop at Poppy's on the high street at Golspie is an ideal half-way halt. 2. Take 3 overnight stops at least. Suggestions are, first night Forss House Hotel, Thurso. second night, Bettyhill Hotel, or Inverlodge Hotel, Lochinver. third night, Poolewe, Aultbea or Gairloch hotels. For a special treat if you budget allows, a fourth night at The Torridon, Annat. 3. Regarding fuel stops, only a few petrol stations have super unleaded fuel. Fill up at Tesco retail park, or Shell station Raigmore, Inverness before you start. Next fuel top- up Wick or Thurso. That'll take you to Ullapool where Gleaner super unleaded is available at the pump furthest away from the road. I always carry a 10 litre can of petrol with me on the NC500 just in case of emergencies. 4. Many POI's on the route. Duncansby Head east of John '0 Groats is spectacular. Particularly the walk across the hill to the Duncansby Stacks. Further west, the beach near Sangobeg and a visit to Smoo Cave are well worth a stop. Knockan Crag geology on the A 835 also well worth a stop. More information in The North Coast 500 Guide Book by Charles Tait. 5. Finally, do not attempt this route in the summer high season. It is mobbed with camper vans. Best time to enjoy this route is March/April (avoiding Easter), or late September early October avoiding the midges. Enjoy! Brian

    Just got back from Carnewal today. Had the GT exhaust fitted after much research. MOT is due in Oct but Carnewal exhaust is not a detrimental move in terms of emissions and I have not heard of anything untoward. Out of interest he has done over 1300 993 exhausts and so very much knows everything you need to know about exhausts and is a huge enthusiast. If anyone out there is thinking of doing the exchange it is well worth it. I took my 14yo son to ride shotgun (getting him off his iPhone was a major achievement!!!) and we set off at 3am, caught the 06.20 shuttle from F'stone to Calais and 35 mins later we were on our way. The Satnav took us on the Northern route (towards Ghent etc) and then down to Maarkedal in just under 2 hours. Schoolboy error on my behalf I forgot to read Gert's comprehensive email and map and paid for it by relying on the Satnav which tried to take us down a few no entries and a circuitous route around Maarkedal but we eventually found Carrnewal (Gert, you need a larger sign!!!) and got to our appointment in time. We met Gert and received a great welcome and drove the car into Carnewal's large workshop adorned with Gert's 993's (which brought back pleasant memories!). He then showed us through to the waiting area, replete with merchandise(all high end stuff here, no cheap Chinese imports) and said he'd only be an hour. His charming wife brought out a jug off coffee and cakes and chocolates which were very much welcomed and within an hour we heard the rumbling and growl of the Carnewal GT exhaust. What an amazing sound. There are many reviews on YT about this exhaust but I have to say it is no comparison to listening to experiencing it live. I went for the twin tail piece as well and the car has been transformed. Gert told us it would need about 100 miles to really bring out the best of the conversion as the car's computer would adjust to its new exhaust. We took the route via Lille back to Calais which was a more straight forward run with much better roads and as the miles went by we could here the incremental difference from the new exhaust. Again, less than 2 hours and we were boarding an earlier train back to UK and never stopped smiling. In summary, if you are thinking of upgrading your exhaust then this has to be the way to go. Gert is also an absolute pleasure to deal with and to quote a well known beer advert. If Carlsberg did garages they'd probably look like this!!! A major US sports brand once said 'Just do it!'. I could not agree more. Some stills here but have short clip of exhaust sound which I'll have to post separately. Get after it folks. Stu

    Hi all, Wanted to share my latest modification with the 987 community. Always liked the look of headlights with black out internals rather than two big chromey beacons being on the front of the car. Did some research and found a company that produces replacement headlights that are aftermarket for about £1k from the US. Felt this was pretty steep so set about modifying my own lights and painting the insides black to achieve the same result. Found a forum thread on another Porsche owners club from someone who had taken on the challenge. And trust me when I say it was a challenge!!! Porsche around the 987 model years changed the supplier of the sealant used to glue the lens and housing together on the lights. This stuff unlike most other headlights does absolutely nothing when exposed to heat. You would usually head the light in the oven which would break down the sealant enough to pry the two parts away from each other. However with this stuff the actually light will melt and burn before the sealant does anything. This set about its own set of challenges. After making some custom tools at work and I set about getting the two bits apart. Won’t go into all the details but it was a pig of a job and took up a lot more time than I thought. And here is the finished results. I personally love it and think it really makes the car look much more modern.

    If you haven't owned a Porsche previously then you're going to struggle to really be able to draw the comparison yourself and realise what most of the informed folk are talking about - thats understandable. Suggesting that a Ford Focus would sound better to your ears does give us an insight into why you might appreciate the 718 mind you, which is fine. I didn't just take the car for a jaunt up the road from my local OPC, I had plenty of time to hear, see, drive and get to know the car. The 718 does have it's plus points, it also maintains the traditional Cayman dynamics that sets it apart from it's peers. I think I also said "equipped with a PDK gearbox would prove to be a very accomplished middle ground between a GT car and 2 seat sports car". However, as a complete package it is let down when compared to where it came from and what it used to be, most people with any experience of owning Porsches will agree with that - hence your comment regarding 'another slating' Its funny really, the minority of people that think this car is an improvement are ironcially the masses...which is where this car will appeal most. I'm quite sure it will prove to be a succesful little car for Porsche, but that doesn't make it a good Porsche. You will love the car i'm sure and I hope you do genuinely, but appreciate where others might be coming from and don't take the informed views of others so personally Scotty

    Over the past 12 months I've been building my idea of a GT4 in a 987 body, it's got pretty much everything done - suspension, diff, brakes, engine work, seats and of course the exterior. Hope you like!

    THE CAYMAN OC 'BUYERS GUIDE' Porsche Cayman S 987 Gen1 (2005-2008) KEY FEATURES Variocam Plus engine Active pop-up rear spoiler 18" wheels "S" Spec red brake callipers SPECIFICATION ENGINE Type Flat 6 Engine size (cc) 3400 Max power (hp) 295 Torque (Nm) 340 @ 4,400 - 6,000 Type Mid-engine, Rear-wheel drive TRANSMISSION No. of gears (Manual/Automatic) 6 speed / 5 speed Tiptronic S Top speed (mph) 171 / 166 Acceleration (0-62 mph) 5.4 / 6.1 Combined (mpg) 26.6 / 25.7 CO2 emissions (g/km) 254 / 264 PRICE AT NEW Price £43,930 Unlike most models from the marque, Porsche released the more powerful version of the car, the Cayman S first in 2005 bosting 295hp which delivered 0-62mph in 5.4 seconds and a 171mph top speed for the manual and 0-62mph in 6.1 seconds and a 166mph top speed for the Tiptronic S. Transmission was a choice between a six-speed manual and five-speed Tiptronic. OTR price, devoid of any options, for the Cayman S in 2006 was £43,930 . The Gen1 Porsche Cayman S currently looks like a very good used proposition in terms of prices and represents the entry level into Cayman ownership. Used prices start from as low as £11,950 for a relatively low spec, high mileage example from an independant dealer and upwards of £15,000 for a decent mileage example from an independant Porsche specialist. Caution is always advised of course as with any Porsche at the bottom rung of the price ladder, so in terms of what to look out for when hunting down your bargain Cayman read on. ENGINE Type Flat 6 Engine size (cc) 3400 Max power (hp) 295 Torque (Nm) 340 @ 4,400 - 6,000 Type Mid-engine, Rear-wheel drive The engine used in the Gen1 Cayman S was the M97.20 3.4-litre unit, using 24 valves and the VarioCam Plus variable valve timing cylinder heads borrowed from the 997 S 3.8-litre engines. The most well-known issue affecting these engines is that of bore-scoring. Not a term foreign to those familiar with previous Porsche models, but in the case of the Gen1 Cayman S became more prevalent, although the numbers of affected cars is still a relatively low percentage. The issue of bore scoring was most common on pre-2007 engines, though it has affected some later engines. Affected engines will require a strip down and partial rebuild, the extent of which can depend on how many cylinder bores are affected and how far you want to extend the engines life. For owners fortunate enough to have a cast iron warranty, generally from Porsche, they may be lucky enough to claim the cost of a rebuild, or likely a replacement under warranty, for those not so lucky the cost can extend in to many thousands of pounds. Signs to look out for can be excessive smoke on start-up and excessive oil usage. A borescope inspection can be performed on cars prior to purchase by most reputable inspection agents to identify if the car is affected – which if so is best avoided unless the cost of a new engine is factored in to the price. Another fault of Porsches of this generation and much like the previous generation Boxsters, not just the Cayman, is the rear main seal (RMS) which will make itself known by small patches of oil leaking from under the engine. As problems go this isn’t a particularly worrying issue and is best left to be rectified at the same time as a clutch replacement, provided the leaking is not excessive. Something worth considering if you are planning on using your Gen1 Cayman S regularly on track is that the engines have only two oil pick-ups and the cylinder head can become starved of oil during hard cornering. Later cars were modified to include 4 oil pick-ups to prevent this issue. The engines much like most Porsches do not sit and purr at idle like a 4 cyl from a modern car, there are noises and anything from sounding like a sewing machine to more irregular ticking noises can be heard. Most are nothing to worry about and can range from sticky lifters to exhaust gaskets starting to deteriorate, if you’re worried it’s always best to get it checked out by your local Porsche specialist. Aside from the issues noted above the Gen 1 Cayman engines and gearboxes tend to be quite strong and reliable. SERVICING Porsche state the following servicing schedule for the Gen1 Cayman S. Although there is certainly no harm in performing mid schedule oil changes, especially for cars used regularly for short trips and/or regular track use. 2 years / 20k miles - MINOR 8 years / 80k miles - MAJOR 4 years / 40k miles – MAJOR 10 years / 100k miles – MINOR 6 years / 60k miles - MINOR 12 years / 120k miles - MAJOR In terms of costs of servicing prices quoted are as follows[2] DEALER - PORSCHE OPC Minor Service - £450 Major Service (including plugs) - £925 Brake Fluid Change - £180 REPUTABLE INDEPENDENT - PARAGON GB Minor Service - £396 Major Service (excluding plugs) - £528 Brake Fluid Change - £111 Some elements of servicing and repairs are no more challenging than most other cars and can be undertaken by competent home mechanics, for instance brake pads and discs are a relatively easy job provided you have some basic knowledge, follow the guide and possess some basic tools. Sourcing the parts and undertaking these kinds of jobs yourself can save significant sums over dealer prices. CHASSIS AND BRAKES The Gen1 Cayman’s steel monocoque chassis is very rigid having been developed directly from the Porsche Boxster but stiffness of the overall structure due to the integral roof was increased by around 150% over that of the Boxster. This additional inherent stiffness allowed Porsche to tweak certain aspects of the suspension giving the Cayman a more compliant ride whilst delivering possibly one of the sweetest handling sports cars they have produced to date. Porsche Active Suspension Management (PASM) was available as an option on the Cayman and whilst seems to be a generally reliable system is not always praised by owners. The choice of wheel size also comes into play when deciding on whether to source a car with or without PASM. Ultimately it will come down to personal opinion and we very much recommend if you can, sampling a selection of cars with or without PASM and with 18”/19” wheels. The Gen1 Cayman S has the usual S addition of slightly bigger brake callipers, emblazoned with the signature “S” model red paint. The standard brakes for road use are generally very good and it’s not until more regular track work that owners should really need to consider upgrading pads, master cylinders or a number of other upgrades discussed in Cayman owner’s circles. For higher mileage cars the main issue to watch out for when sourcing a used car, particularly on cars over the 50k mile mark is deteriorating suspension parts. Steering should feel sharp and connected to the road, any vagueness or ‘floaty’ feeling to the car could be down to a number of things, including tyre wear, geometry misalignment and suspension component wear. A higher mileage but well maintained car should have paperwork to support replacement suspension parts, otherwise factor in £1,000 for undertaking a bit of an overhaul yourself; you want your Cayman to display the handling characteristics it is legendary for. BODYWORK The Gen1 Cayman S bodywork is a fully galvanised steel affair and shouldn’t suffer from corrosion, if you see a car with any signs then walk away. It is not uncommon on these cars, indeed most Porsches, for the front bumper and bonnet to have been re-sprayed to rectify the numerous stone chips that the cars pick up over their life. This in itself is not a problem unless the work has been undertaken to a poor standard, check the leading door shuts, around the black plastic trim under the bonnet and wheel arches for overspray and poor fitting plastics. Whilst inspecting any front end paintwork, also ensure the front radiators and condensers are free of debris, are not visibly damaged or leaking. INTERIOR Check window operation, as faults are known with the window mechanism and is both fiddly and relatively costly to repair. The Gen1 Cayman S interior is now looking a bit dated compared with the latest Porsche models and even perhaps compared to the Gen2, but should still hold up to high mileage and function in all respects. Seat bolsters are the normal area where you would expect to see wear and they are the not toughest of leather so don’t be surprised to see signs of wear on a car with 50k miles or even less. Check equipment levels in the cabin, importantly understanding the difference between the lesser spec air conditioning and more desirable climate control, many Gen1 Cayman S were specced with just air conditioning. Gen 1 Cayman Satnav (PCM) is now a bit long in the tooth compared to modern satellite navigation systems and generally is not worth a premium over the standard CD player in our opinion, but some owners still like a big screen. Be warned though that integration with modern gadgets is basic at best. MODIFICATIONS Many owners will consider an upgraded exhaust to improve the rather benign sound of the stock Cayman, retrospectively upgrading to the Porsche Sports Exhaust is rather costly so many owners have gone the route of a Carnewal upgrade. Gert Carnewal is based in Belgium and is very well known in Porsche circles with very good feedback from his service and the work he does. The Carnewal GT exhaust gives a much more sporting note at high revs and deeper tone at idle, and importantly not introducing any notable boom during normal driving. Brakes are another area where some owners like to improve their cars, in this case the brake pedal feel has sometimes come into question. A common modification is retrofitting a master cylinder from a 997 GT3 to address the pedal feel coupled with a set of aftermarket brake pads, usually the Pagid RS-29 but there are others. Brake fluid is a good item to change also if you going to use the car on track. OPTIONS The Gen1 Cayman S came with a number of standard features but as with any Porsche the list of options was fairly exhaustive and potential owners may wish to check the factory fitted options before purchasing a vehicle. For instance, does the car have the standard lower spec air conditioning or was climate control optioned from factory. The options codes are listed on the identification sticker on the car and also inside the front page of the car’s service book. The following list is a world-wide list of the possible options available on the Gen 1 Cayman S.
