    New Cayman S with Diff.Lock?

    Can anybody say if new Cayman S has a Diff-Lock as an option ???

    Cheers

    Tom


    Re: New Cayman S with Diff.Lock?

    Yes

    And also for Boxster


    Re: New Cayman S with Diff.Lock?

    Great news if true 

    Big step in the right direction ... the new CaymanS with 320hp + diff.lock should make my day ;-)

    Cheers

    Re: New Cayman S with Diff.Lock?

    When I spoke to the OPC earlier, LSD is only available with PDK - doesn't need 19".  How infuriating though - I really dislike PDK but think that an LSD is essential.  Looks like I won't be renewing my car any time soon.  No -20mm SPASM either by the look of it. 

    Also, Adaptive lights wityh Xenon are over £1000, with no option for Xenon on its own.  Again this is infuriating because I would (begrudgingly) pay £705 for Xenon but not more for adaptive.  Still, I reckon this might be Porsche's loss because that price is just silly IMHO and will put most off.

    What was comical was the Universal Audio Adapter - £75 with CDR-30, £222 with PCM.  Even the salesman was gobsmacked at just £75.


    Re: New Cayman S with Diff.Lock?

    That's the problem with Porsche. Brilliant cars but then they hog customers on options which is a let down considering how bare their model are. Not to mention the fact that the Cayman already is a very pricey car. This is one of the reasons why some people who can afford to buy a Boxster or Cayman decide to go for a Bimmer or Benz as they cannot afford to spec a Porsche properly. Especially when some options are a must for a respectable resale value. Just look at how Sport Chorno is practically a must when choosing PDK. IMO it should be included in the purschase of PDK. BMW nor Ferrari don't charge extra for being able to select gearbox mode.

    Re: New Cayman S with Diff.Lock?

    You can order mechanical diff-lock for rear without having PDK ... that is nonsense.

    GR:

    OPCs (dealers in this country) are often misinformed (with rare exceptions). That is not true - LSD is available with a manual tranny.

    Re: New Cayman S with Diff.Lock?

    I hope you are right, but initially on the order guide I was provided, option code 220 (Limited Slip Differential), requires option 250 (PDK).    Some posters believe that LSD will be available with a manual tranny sometime mid-2009.

    No sport suspension (-20mm)?

    Only LSD +/- PASM?

     Ideally I would have prefered -20mm sport suspension with LSD and no PASM.

     I prefer a constantly stiff/sporty ride with out having to press the sport mode in PASM (and extra cost)
