Jenic's Porsche Cayman

The dream is:

1st - 40
2nd - 60
3rd - 90
4th - 120
5th - 140
6th - 170 over drive


If you tracked a Cayman at Bylton you'd only use second!
You'd just stay in 2nd and 3rd yeh, tbh on the roads around here I'm just in 2nd and 3rd while playing.

Found the calculated top speeds on Planet 9. I must have been almost on the limiter when I got an indicated 80.

1st.......41MPH.............ratio..3.67
2nd......74MPH.............ratio..2.05
3rd......103MPH............ratio..1.46
4th......134MPH............ratio..1.13
5th......156MPH............ratio..0.97
6th......180MPH............ratio..0.84

Those rations aren’t bad for a 7k Rev limit.

Must have an odd ratio diff.

This gen 1 base 2.7 got into 4th gear once...although it looked like he still had revs to spare.

That’s even odder. Long stack 1st and 2nd then short stacked from there on?!

What’s the diff ratio?

For a 987, unsurprisingly I have a spreadsheet for that...

Wow. Don’t understand any of this. I’m just happy that my auto box changes gear for me 👍
If you get a 981 I presume it'll be as a 3rd car? In that case would you still PDK?

I wanted manual from the start, even though I loved my ZF auto, I did nearly buy a PDK 981 last month but so glad I got the manual now.

I'm dailying the lolvo at the moment and I really miss the auto around town, that goes in a week though and then this is my only car while I decide if I need a daily, and what that should be.

Yeah it would be a 3rd car. The Mini is my toy, the Skoda the family bus and the 981 would be the garage queen 😂

But it’s a good question. I love auto but given the 981 would probably get less than 2 thousand miles per year, manual is probably a good call.

The side repeater came today from Porsche in Leeds, incredible how cheap it was but I guess most people buy the 718 LED ones, maybe Porsche have a mass of these in stock they need offloading 😂

The old one, full of condensation and manky:

And replaced, massive improvement:

Had the Porsche just over 5 weeks now, got to say I am really loving it! It's just an incredible driving machine, I can drive it like a massive knob and it'll just let me, brake mid corner because you've entered way too fast and it's not an issue, it just lets you. It makes me, an average driver, look way better than I actually am!

I am also loving stepping back in to a manual, I loved auto in the BMW but this gearbox feels so precise, and heel toeing is easy as pie, it's just so well set up for a driver.

It was looking a bit dirty so I gave it it's second wash today, the first was 3 weeks ago.

It's been a while since I ever did any detailing, I think the M135i got washed twice during my ownership. Decided to get some new bits, bilt hamber auto wash and auto foam, some new buckets and mitt for now, oh and some interior cleaner, I need Z9 and Z10 for the leather too at some point. I already have a lot of my old gear from way back when, for when I eventually do a full detail (tar x/iron x/glaze etc) but I was all out of these basics.

I also found out yesterday my 12 year old K2 had packed up, so treated myself to a K4 today.

Anyway, just a quick wash foam and wash today, incredible how strong the auto wash is, I did 2 teaspoons to my big bucket.

100% agree with this, they are just supremely capable, balanced, and so neutral.

I spent a couple of hours yesterday morning driving like an absolute c*** on some wonderful empty country roads, and driving to the road conditions and visibility, there's nothing it can't handle with ease. Nothing.

Taking it on track in a few weeks is going to be interesting, the limits are high!
