    Boxster Coupe GTS:

    ...wonder if the new Cayman will be a similar size to the 993?

    AFAIK, the current Cayman is already bigger than the 993 (with a much longer wheelbase) and the new Cayman will be larger (with even longer wheelbase).

    New Cayman looks very promising. Current Cayman S is very fun car to drive, so maybe next gen. Cayman S will replace my current E92. 


    Re: Porsche 991 GT3 to include GT1 motorsport engine... Thread Closed

    Does anyone know if engines in new Cayman will be based on current engines or new engines will be offered ? I hope for engine similar to engine in Audi TT RS, which is IMO better than current engine in Cayman S...


    Re: Porsche 991 GT3 to include GT1 motorsport engine... Thread Closed

    I'm pretty much certain that they will be smaller versions of the boxter engine used in the 911 like always... except maybe for the rumored 4 cilinder engine for the Cayman/Boxster, that may be carried over from VAG.

    Dear SMEEKMEISTER,

    Firstly, welcome to Rennteam Smiley
    You are right. This thread is primarily about the upcoming 991. It is also 78 pages long with almost 4000 replies already. To be fair, among all these pages, only VERY few posts have been about the Cayman. Smiley

    Secondly, regarding your first post here on Rennteam, a nice introduction of yourself would have been more friendly and welcoming than a rethorical question with a patronizing undertone. Smiley

    I have the file in PDF. It's the Press Information at the time of the 997.2 launch. I could try to e-mail it to you if you want.

    Perhaps the PDF of the 997 DFI Press Information could be uploaded to Rennteam so others can download a copy?

    Eunice, sir -- would that be possible?

    Nothing groundbreaking but here is a little bit of info I just saw.

    Cheers.


    Re: Porsche 991 GT3 to include GT1 motorsport engine... Thread Closed

    Why all this woohaa everywhere about a 7-speed manual. I guess it is simply an overdrive like on the PDK. The "other" 6 gears will remain as the current 6-speed. Or am I completely missing the plot?

    Personally I almost never use all six gears on my 997. I wind up accelerating to a high enough speed by the time I'm in fourth and then just jump to 6th but it is nice to see them still trying to evolve the manual. Also nice to get launch control, although I'm not sure how much I will wind up using that either.

    Hi reginos -- apparently you should be able to upload the original PDF file to Rennteam by clicking on the "Choose File" button, just as if you were uploading an image...

    I would even predict under 2.9 sec., because even now 997.2 TT accelerate in 2.9 sec in various tests...

     2.9 - not more and no less. And 2.9 is incredible fast.

     For the 997 series, the 4/4S have been launched just a few month after the 2/2S or even at the same time.

    I can well imagine it will also be the case with the 991
