  1. Agree about the steering wheel, i have driven a Boxster with the back to front up/down thumb shifters, hated it, will get the sports design wheel for sure. At least that can be fitted quite easily at a later stage.
  2. I've been in the market for a 981 Cayman S for a while now, originally only wanted a manual but broadening my search now to PDK, my question is, is Sports Chrono a must with PDK? Is it even worth considering cars without it? I particularly like how my current DCT blips the throttle on downshifts in sport mode, does this happen in non SC equipped 981 Caymans? I drove a base 718 without SC and it didn't blip.
  3. The only thing really holding me back is the lack of options, the picture in my head of my dream Cayman includes PSE and Cayman S wheels which is going to add significant $ to the purchase price of this one. There are a few heavily optioned PDK cars on the market at the moment priced similarly. Decisions...decisions.
  4. Yet another manual CS for sale this morning...Agate Grey. https://www.carsales.com.au/cars/details/2013-Porsche-Cayman-S-981-Manual/OAG-AD-18657854
  5. Thanks @Bugs77, Yeah i saw that one pop up, looks good, i'm not sure i'm a fan of Platinum Silver though. Also more than I'm looking to spend tbh.
  6. I'm definitely up for that, I've been to the one at UWA a few times, always some great cars there. I'd certainly consider a base manual Cayman if one local comes available, I've even widened my search to include PDK but i think that would have to be a S, I've driven a base Boxster PDK and was a bit underwhelmed.
  7. Wow that seems a bit overpriced...😯 Im wondering if the ad is supposed to read GT4 981 not GTS. @Bugs77 has the Cayman arrived yet or has it been affected by the interstate travel restrictions?
  8. Congrats Phil, i had my eye on this one for a while, great choice, was disappointed when it sold lol. Can i ask did you organise a PPI and if so who did you use? Also what freight company are you using to bring it over? (Feel free to PM if you prefer) I'm also in WA and waiting for something to pop up locally has not been fruitful. I've always been worried buying a car sight unseen but looks like I'm going to have to go interstate to get what i want .
  9. This S has a nice spec, only things I'm not keen on is the steering wheel (much prefer the proper paddle shift) and the kms are a tad high for my liking. Oh and it's not in WA. Lol If it drops under 90k though i could be tempted . https://www.carsales.com.au/cars/details/2013-Porsche-Cayman-S-981-Auto/SSE-AD-6443715
  10. Has anyone any info on the three 987 Boxster Spyders currently on Carsales? I'm currently in the market for a 981 Cayman/Boxster but i adore the look of these Spyders. Have they been on the market for a long time? The black one says just serviced 21/05/19 which indicates to me it's been for sale a while. I thought maybe as they are quite unique they'd be sought after so was wondering why they are still for sale.. overpriced?
  11. Just wish i could stretch my budget to afford a GTS... I'd take any one of the four. That Qld one is a beauty with super low kms.
  12. Haha...they are pretty awesome, have owned mine since 2016, the longest I've ever kept a car, has been difficult to try and find something comparable to replace it with.
  13. You are probably correct, my current car is an M2. I know neither will be as quick in a straight line but still wanting something with a bit of get up and go. Sounds like an 'S' is definitely what i should be concentrating on then especially with the extra torque. Thanks for your detailed reply, much appreciated. I'm definitely leaning towards an 's' now after yours and nassys comments. What are people's thoughts on the price for the manual 'S'? Looks like only option added is the PSE?
