    Re: Cayman GT4

    vantagesc:

    The Cayman platform really does not need rear wheel steering.  Nor does it need center locks.  Hope those two things stay away!

    Indeed - hard to imagine why anyone wants it to rotate any faster than it already does.. CLs I got used to - bit of a faff but not the end of the world. Would still prefer 5 bolts though.

    Any tips you can share?  I'm a bit of a tool collector, so it gives me a reason to waste some more money on a big German torque wrench Smiley

    Wish it didn't require a helper to press the brake pedal or big clamp when tightening or loosening the center bolt...

    Re: Cayman GT4

    Yeah, it's a 2-person job ideally.  Buy a big wrench, no torque multipliers. Some buy extendable ones to make them more transportable. After that it's just a case of break it, remove wheel, clean surfaces, regrease mating surfaces with special grease, put the wheel back on then torque it. Back off 180 degrees, torque again, and jiggle the safety lock til it's popped out. Simple! 

    Inspection calls for checking the mating surfaces for scoring, and full disassembly of the nut, cleaning and regreasing the internals. This can be left til service time though.

    Huh?! How is this different for the GT4 compared to e.g. the GT3 or GT2? In other words, why can Porsche test the next GT4 without anyone noticing when the GT3 and GT2 have been noticed since long?

    Take a guess: They wanted people to notice it. Smiley

    Follow up question: Why did Porsche want ALL their other models to be noticed but not the next GT4? 

    If you find that question hard to answer, there is a bonus question: Name one Porsche model which did not get noticed?

    Because they want the press to find out about a certain model at a given time when they (Porsche) "allows" it to happen. If they unveil a certain model too early, this could affect sales numbers of current models. That simple. Otherwise they would openly publish their production plans for the next five years and wouldn't need to hide certain models. Smiley
