987.2 | Miata | GTI
Thanks! Had to get one with so many miles to make it affordable given the mortgage and all that jazz.Nice!
I guess you had to buy another one. Any reasons for buying one with many more miles this time around?
For my primary purposes (daily driver & spirited canyon runs), the base is 100% adequate. I get to ring it out more and use more of its potential, similar to the Miata. But I also never felt like I had too much power with my S.Nice. Does one “have to have” a Cayman S to enjoy a Cayman? Are the base cars good enough? Do you feel like you’re missing out? I like Caymans as well but wonder if the premium for an S is really worth it.
No, they offered $4,500 for it (much more than I thought) but I'll be selling it myself; got a couple people interested to see it this weekend.Nice looking Porsche. Did you trade the Miata?
Did you see The Sign?I came in for 2000's Swedish Pop music.....
:laugh:My ****ing man.
And you didn’t have any good pictures, paaalleeaasseeee :laugh:
Congrats Kiz. Just be careful they’re a little unruly

I mean, I didn't have any till last night! I like to put out a quality product, nomsayin'?
Thanks! My wallet would prefer the "as is" approach but...yeah, that's not gonna be the case.Nice! Any plans to upgrade the car in any way or enjoying as is?
Near-term plans are lowering springs with long-term plans including a different exhaust (maybe).
I'll be doing a tune-up with some basic items soon. Clutch & flywheel were replaced at 64k miles which is kinda early. If it was caused by too many clutch dumps, they clearly short shifted based on the over-rev report. Shifter cables are also on my list as they're a known weak point.Congrats---that's about the perfect porsche sports car. I've seen your other thread with the M5, so any mechanical items that need to be addressed or is this in pretty perfect condition?
:laugh:It's no CLA AMG but I suppose it'll do.
I knew you never believed the original story but did you guess it could be this?
Truth! :beer:Welcome to the 987.2 (base) club! Who cares about the low end, getting that flat 6 to sing is where the fun is.
100% accurate.You suck at parking.
I know.Not gonna lie, I'm disappointed that you're not resurrecting the NB all the way. But congrats on the Cayman. Beautiful car and looks like a lot of fun. :thumbup:
That would've been satisfying as well but at least I still made it better than what it was when I got it.
Looks good! :thumbup:Since we're all posting pictures of our "lowly" base Cayman .2's...
My only knock with mine is the stock 17" Cayman II wheels. I love the style of them, just they're an inch too small in diameter and width. Plan is to pickup some 18" wheels soon, but keep the 17's for "all season" DWS Contis.
I'm not in love with my wheels, but I don't hate them either. I agree that 18" would look better and just the right size; anything bigger doesn't suit the car IMHO.
