Sounds awesome. That's my next car probably.

Show me the wheels on the other car in your garage.

I have an Exige, so the Cayman handling experience isn't a shoe-in to impress me .

Good looking wheels sir .

Perhaps the "new" Cayman/Boxster, with the H4 turbo motors? The 981 are all flat 6, whereas the 718 are all flat 4 (with the exception of the Boxster Spyder and Cayman GT4).

What year did the turbo 4 start? He has had it for 1 or 2 years

Should've started when the 718 dropped, which was 2017.

My girl has recently taken a loving for Boxsters, and if I were to snag her one, it would be a 981, just because of the flat 6. All trims of the 981 got the flat 6, the Base has a small 2.7L whereas the S and GTS have a larger 3.4L(I think). Although the steering wheel in the 718 is FAR better.

BTW OP, she sounds amazing. I can't wait to put an exhaust on the M2...

Funny I like the aftermarket one ...but not the pops and farts.

I will own a 981.2 one day.

Haha...I like to refer it to as a snap crackle pop....

farts are more associated with the 4 cyl 718


I think you mean just a 981.... there isn't a 981.2 there is a 982 which is known as the 718... the 981 only had a three year run 2014-2016 for the Cayman.

But yes, the 981 is the one to get

Same here. The M2 handled well. The Cayman rotates on its axis! I just picked up a very clean 987.1 CS with 25k miles. The mods begin tomorrow with the Softronics ECU tune. Then it's on to full exhaust and intake from Soul Performance. Should sound just like this....

Making me jealous again... I just got over not swapping my M3 CS for a 981 and a dealer called me today with a perfectly specced GTS in the color I wanted and now this post. FML.
