  1. CAR magazine has used the piece we assisted with a few months back in 2018 and used one of our member's cars for the shoot. Always good to see exposure for the club - it's in the Feb 2019 issue if anybody is interested Thanks to @Junky for turning up with his yellow beast!! 👍
  2. Some great Christmas pressies there guys! I got Lego
  3. Great to have you 'officially' on-board with the OC Gert, many thanks for your contributions and support! 👍
  4. Thought you'd all appreciate (in lieu of the actual things arriving!) the print mock-up with the label in etc.
  5. Its definitely worked Craig, we've got your order (no.174) through our store, so all good!
  6. Update! The t-shirts are on their way to us, and we will be adding custom neck labels, undertaking quality control, packaging up and sending out in the next week or so. We'll be fulfilling orders from the reserved list on this thread as a priority once payment has been taken. If you have reserved from the list above, then payment can be made through the club merchandise store. This way we can keep a record of your order and ensure we have your delivery details. Please ensure you order the item you reserved in the size you wanted - if you do want to change then can you let me know before making payment to ensure we can accommodate your order. Cayman OC Merchandise Store If you've got any questions or need a hand then just shout, PM etc. 👍
  7. Will do, what size do you need?
  8. Hi Beanoir,

     

    Wondering if there is a classifieds section or a way to let others who might be interested that I am looking to sell my R unfortunately due to a change in circumstances

     

    Let me know if that’s possible. Mines done 56k miles, it’s white, PDK and has buckets. 

     

    Thanks mate. Adam

      sorry for your loss mate, that's going to be a tough divorce me thinks to lose the R.

  9. Merry Xmas Nick and Louise. Nick, when you get five, no rush, Ive been to Sywell and scoped out another venue and would like to discuss sometime over an ale. Steve

  10. Hope everybody is ready for Santa!! Have a great Christmas everyone, enjoy the day whatever your plans may be. (Ours is entertaining for 10 😬!!) Merry Christmas!!!
  11. The Platinum Member t-shirt will be a different shirt design, so you'll get both. Stickers were in yesterday's post, I believe 2nd class postage so hopefully tomorrow (Thursday) - PM if you haven't had them by Friday
  12. Thanks Darren, its certainly been challenging but i'll confess i'm also very much looking forward to receiving my own shirt!
  13. Porsche have officially converted rumour into fact with the announcement of the 718 Cayman T. In the same vein that the Carrera T does, the new 718 Cayman T sits between the base and S versions of it's Cayman siblings and boasts a similar level of specification amendments designed to appeal to those seeking a more driver focused offering. In terms of high level spec, the T is offered with the 296bhp 2.0 litre engine from the base car, which some will be disappointed with, albeit the performance from this unit is arguably still very much enough for a road car. What you do get though over the base car is PVT which includes a limited slip diff, again appealing to those with a penchant for anything over an 8 tenths driving style. 20mm lower suspension and sports chrono are also standard on the T. Performance figures suggest a top speed of 171mph, with 0-60mph taking just 4.5secs (if you spec PDK) and 0-100mph around 11 seconds. The 718 T’s attributes are shared with the 911 Carrera T, in that the sat nav and media systemhave been removed to save some weight and give the Cayman a more hardcore feeling. But you can add it all back in for nothing (in the same way as you could with the 987 Cayman R), and most owners likely will. In terms of pricing. The 718 Cayman T starts at £51,145, gaining £5,071 over the base car, which sits an uncomfortably £700 shy of the 718 S. The expectation however is that this will be a more focused and appealing car in the same way as the Carrera T is and many will be asking "is this finally Porsche's replacement for the iconic and sublime Cayman R?"
