Two things I think,
1. The Macan exists
2. The 718 is really not very different from the 981 other than the interior.
Nick has had the worst luck with Porsches. His second 911 might be also get lemon lawed
+1 The SUV's are what saved Porsche. 2 seater roadsters are much more niche within the sports car segment. Tack on the 4 cyl engine and you've lost the hard core Porsche elite.
Much as I admire Porsche engineering and performance, at a certain point you have to wonder why he keeps buying them with that track record. Two lemons from one ‘premium’ brand would probably sway me away from that brand ever again! Mind you, if you love 911s, there are not many options that are as good. I guess making essentially the same car for decades really has allowed Porsche to hone it to near perfection - reliability aside.
After the nightmare and the hurdles that he had to go through, I would assume this second case would go much more smoother. He's well known in the Porsche community so he wouldn't have to yell as loud. I have to hand it to him for his ongoing patience. I'm not sure if he's cursed or if Porsche sells him shitty 911's.
Every generation of the 911 has had it's own set of issues. We can definitely thank Toyota for helping them in the 90's and maybe even VW from 2012.
100% spot on with this assessment. 4-banger just not going to cut it.
I still remember a clip he showed on a video some time ago when he parked his car, but forgot to engage the electronic E-Brake. And the car slowly started rolling backwards . Thank god he got to it in time, but it was so funny and not funny at the same time.
It was a 4 banger prior to the Cayman
Are you talking about the 550 because the 986, 987 and 981 were all flat sixes.
First Boxster was 1996. That was a 2.5L flat six.
First Cayman was 2006. That was a 2.7L flat six for the base model.
912's were flat fours.
914's had both flat fours and flat sixes.
DesmoSD already mentioned the 550 was a flat four.
356's were also 4's. The things I would do if I had a 356 Outlaw!
I'm....talking about the 944 and 968
This is an old article from 2016, but its a great example of what still goes on with the high end performance brands.
Funny thing is, in 2019 the same thing seems to have just happened, The Cayman GT4 WAS up on the Porsche website ... now its not.
