Came to the Cayman from 2005 997.1S. Always wanted to try one and the GT4 Boxster Spyder are currently out of reach. t350t TVR. Awesome car.
CGTS was perfect today. Comfortable absorbing the bumps, rough surfaces and really impressing. Off to Switzerland in August so look forward to that.

Finally picked my new to me CGTS . 2016 Agate. Manual. Sounds lovely and is the ride is superb even with dampers switched to firm. A good move so far. Off to North Wales in the morning so a real test with my pal's T350t.


Lovely looking car Jonny. Thumb Out of curiosity is there any drone from the exhaust around 2krpm and also with the 6 speed manual what is the rpm at say 70mph? I have a PDK and in 7th the car seems to want to cruise at 2krpm at which point there is a drone to the exhaust.

I too have noticed a slight drone under those conditions. I think others have reported this too. I guess it's a side affect of the extra plumbing on the intake side 🤷‍♂️

Yup, I have an annoying drone at light throttle at 2krpm (which is where the PDK seems to be a lot of the time under normal driving conditions.) It's worse on the motorway as 2krpm in 7th is around 70-80mph. Sometimes I just put it in manual and drop down to 6th (which is then 3krpm) and the drone disappears. This is in normal mode, not sport and with PSE off. The exhaust sounds amazing everywhere else, just not at normal PDK cruising speed rev ranges. A quick google of other Porsche forums and it seems this is pretty common on Cayman PDK GTS cars. I think manual cars don't suffer as much as they tend to cruise at higher rev ranges due to only having 6 gears.

I have a Cayman GTS PDk Mr. Green

I also have a 997.1S which I have had for 4 years and loved. However it will be up for sale when I finally get it back from Hartech... Whilst it was there I fell in love with a bright yellow GTS and bought it...Only had it for just over a month but love it Cool


Another convert Thumb ...... the 981 GTS is and will be regarded as one of the best sports cars ever built Smile ......... especially given the Evo review of the 718 GTS just out (see my boxster journal for reference).


In a world first I agree with Jon, its an absolute cracker, in every way. A friend from work is coming to the September meet in his blue Cayman GTS, to say he's impressed with it is an understatement.

So OP GTS YKIMS....
