      Title: Manuals Matter

    So the debate will always continue, but as Catchpole rightly points out in this video by Carfection, Porsche have listened to their discerning customers have have recently re-introduced the manual box on it's GT3.  

     

    Andreas Preuninger, head of Porsche’s GT program, recently commented that the GT3 “is full of systems that make sense on the track, but for the purist, there may be something lost”. He also added “it is our long-term goal to have the customer decide between the two approaches”.

     

    Most interestingly though is the 911.2 GT3 is actually a 6 speed box rather than the 7 speed manual found in other Carrera models.  It will be interesting to see what approach Porsche take with the upcoming 718 GT4 model in this regard.  

     

    Enjoy 

     

    Doc.

  • Spyder suspension on BS

    An impostor in a Boxster! 😃  I still hope you guys can help me out. I've bought a 987.2 BS Black Edition and am absolutely loving the car. I already did a few minor mods (SSK, front braces) but one big one I want to do in the spring is sport suspension.   I'm not the one to tinker with suspension bits so I'm looking for a great bolt-on. I've read a lot about the Spyder suspension and I'm leaning heavily towards it. If I understand correctly it's just springs and dampers, right? Or are

    18" Road legal track tyres

    Having just destroyed a brand new (run in but still new) Potenza Sport tyre at Anglesey, I think the time has come for me to get a second set of wheels.    The problem I'm having is that I can't find many options for road legal track tyres in the correct 18" size. I could go up a profile to 45s and use the NS2R but I'm not sure if this would cause rubbing (I'm running 8.3 degrees of caster).    What are others using?

    Thoughts: 987s Design edition or 987.2s

    So I’m considering my next car at mo. Currently in a z4 coupe 3.0 which I absolutely love. But want to get something that’s a bit rarer or more powerful and better driving experience.   Whats everyone’s thoughts on 987 design edition vs 987.2s? What’s more likely to hold their value long term 3 years+ assuming car is maintained immaculately? Which would you go for if the price for each was the same, and condition was in the 90th percentile, and why? Lastly does

    Anyone ever experienced this before? Awaiting roadside rescue from one of RAC's "trusted partners"! 🤬

    Looking to buy first Porsche 987.1 or 987.2 or S

    Hi All.  I joined this forum to get some advice from owners who have been here and done it already.   Looking for Gen1 or 2 987, (or S).    What would you do if you were me?   It seems the options for me are:   1) ~£15K Gen1 70K-90K miles 2) ~£21K Gen2 60K-80K miles   I'm torn between them, do risk older and save £5K? I will be doing a full PPI before buying. Planning to only by from Trade, as this is a lot of money for me to make a mistake.

  • 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
