    These cars on the truck were very likely customer cars and I am pretty confident that the customers will get their (ordered) car but it may take a while now.

    Re: Cayman GT4

    I can imagine the call from the Porsche sales guy:
    "Uhum, there has been a little accident with you car.
     Yes the car you insisted on getting just in time for the summer...
     It will probably be slightly delayed, sorry."

    Not fun at all.

     


    Re: Cayman GT4

    As RC stated I'm pretty confident the orders will be honoured. Would've been more difficult had a PTS colour been involved.

    Any likelyhood they'll simply repair the damaged cars? Some may only be cosmetic (rear bumper on the carmine red one)?

    For sure, I reckon. Delivered to the OPC's for inspection to see.

    Oh dear... can´t that happen to some KIAs? Smiley


    Re: Cayman GT4

    My car was finished two weeks ago and is supposed on its way to Belgium... Any idea where the crash happened and where it was heading ?!!!

    I'm shocked laugh​​​​​​​

    It happened just east of Dortmund, which isn't on a direct route from Stuttgart to Belgium, so you should hopefully be OK.

    Re: Cayman GT4

    Well, all Caymans are assembled in Osnabrück, which puts Dortmund right on its way to Belgium, I'd say...


    Re: Cayman GT4

    True, but they should arrive in Kortenberg at D'Ieteren by train, hence I think they weren't destined for our market.


    Re: Cayman GT4

    Hope what you say is true kiss

    i'm waiting for an OPC contact today


    Re: Cayman GT4

    Re: Cayman GT4

    They'll just fix them. They barely look like they have any damage.


    Re: Cayman GT4

    Look again. The top ramp dropped down onto the cars below. Some are certainly totaled.

    I also received a letter today, confirming the car is in its final production phase... Strange, the dealer told me that 3 weeks ago... I don't know what to expect in terms of delivery time. Does anyone know?

    For Watt's attention:  I told you PDK is no cure for the road car's tall gearing, "The PDK gearbox is an ideal fit for the GT4 CS, but its leggy ratios annoy, just as they do on many Porsches outside of the 911 GT3/GT3 RS."

    When autoquest launches their low R & P, they will have a customer for lifeSmiley  Their gt3 bits are nifty too

    Watt - I just received details today for a new R&P from BGB's German tuner.  New final drive is 4.75:1 from stock 3.888:1 or a lowering of 22% (huge difference).  2nd gear would change from 82 mph to 64 mph.  This would be great for me, but way too low for many people...

    I calculated that Vmax should only be 149mph at 7,800 (instead of stock 181 @ 7,400 rpm), but they claim 161.5 mph.

    So either there is some kind of error or this includes a taller 6th gear.

    More details as I learn them...

    Thanks Grant,

    please let me know how to reach them, and when shipping?  All details appreciated asap.  I expect autoquests' r n p about september 2016
