I’ve got the Numeric cables and shifter however not on the car. When I spoke to RPM Technik about this last they said they had not had a cable failure on a car running the OEM Porsche short shifter... hence the Numeric setup isn’t yet fitted
Mine failed unfortunately.

Damn. It amazes me they don't have a non third party solution other than just replacing it over and over...

Picture of R on the drive



I love Peridot Green on the R. I respect anyone's colour choice but I've done all the black, white, grey ("it's a traditional Porsche Motorsport colour", "it's a wolf in sheep's clothing", "think about the resale value", etc.) colour selections and really wanted something that stands out this time. Extremely happy.

Its almost certain when you see a Peridot 987, it will be a Cayman R. As opposed to a PTS base car or Cayman S.
It was the launch colour for the model and IMO the best colour to own an R in. (Although i do love white, yellow and red biggrin)

there are a few 991 and new cars about in this now. But it only works on the R imo.

It is an odd colour, I think it looks perfect on the R but have yet to see any other car that it suited. Some of the other Porsche greens look great on other Porsche models, but not peridot. Like a viper green 911 which I think can look mega.... although controversially I don't think that green suits the R. boxedin

Does anyone please have a photo of their R's interior with Alcantara pack/trim on gear selector and handbrake?

What original options were available for non-standard console storage cover? Just "Porsche" lettering or logo also?

Has anyone got a list of all the original UK options with prices please?

The alcantara wheel is great, love mine but I do wish the center marker was coloured.

Alcantara center console is nice, I wish mine had that too.

My CR has the Alcantara wheel.
But my old Cayman S Sport Ltd Edition had the wheel gearknob handbrake in alcantara as standard.

Hi guys,

Could someone with factory buckets do me a favour and measure how 'long' the t belt buckle receptor is and if possible give me a part number?

I'm installing some pole positions into my Cayman S and i need to extend/replace my existing buckles so they come through the seat properly.

Thanks

Bedford GT booked for next Sat. Nice easy place to get used to the car. Loving it so far. However must remember the brakes are nowhere near the GT3s!
