I subscribed to this guy's channel a few days ago. He has a wonderful spirit and fresh perspectives. His point about enjoying multiple engine sounds is spot on. And this is coming from a guy who just bought a GT3, and who has owned Porsches for nearly 20 years.

I loved the fact that in the early scenes his shoes are Miami Blue--do I sense a prejudice here?;)

I also liked his enthusiasm for the base model.:) I too reckon it sounds great.

Although, it was an interesting video the true Miami Blue color was not adequately captured on this video. In person the Miami Blue color is, indeed, a stunning choice.

Thanks for sharing. As I noted a couple days ago, I am doing my research to potentially move from my 2016 2.7L to a 718 Cayman. I have been leaning towards the Cayman S but I just may take a long, hard look at the 2.0L. I have owned an 08CS, Cayman R, 2014 2.7L, and now the 2016. You will notice that I seemed to go in reverse to most people moving from a 3.4L to a 2.7L. So, the displacement is relative......it is how it meets my needs. The new car will be bespoke in order to meet my specific requirements just as the 2016 was/is. As I think about it, the 2.0L is 25hp more than my current Cayman. And, it is 5hp more than my 08CS and a bit lighter. Here is what I am thinking......
o Night Blue Metallic
o Agate Grey
o 19" Cayman
o PDK
o 14 Way
o Premium (BiXenon)
o PASM Sport Plus (20mm-10mm if 2.0L Cayman)
o Sport Wheel
o Chrono
o LCA
o Silver tips
o Colored Crests
o Headlight Cleaner in Body Color

Very entertaining and funny video. I saw this video few days ago and I didn't know that he had many Porsche. Thanks for sharing that since it gives him more credibility. I love his enthusiasm.


When testing the base 718 he sais:
"...No, I am not missing the two cylinders... and would like add into the debate on the internet forums regarding the missing the two cylinders and the character of the engin and the sound etc. and I would like to add into the debate with only one question and that is: Why was the Boxster and Cayman equipped with a 6 cylinder in the first place..."


Then he accelerate full throttle...


Cool!!

I'd post this in the Dealers, Pricing, and Ordering subforum and get some feedback on your choices (I know I've got some for you because your build is a lot like mine). No sense in derailing the OP's thread here for this ... :: hint hint :: >:D

Excellent! ( Haven't seen this one) Love the Gollum reference at the beginning. Agree the 718 has a lovely sound compared to the harsh wail of the 981.

Slightly related - while I've been waiting for my base 718 to be built I've been looking at endless YouTube reviews. One thing I've noticed is when they do a comparison that the base 718 exhaust seems to sound 'better' than the S.

A good review showing this is the Autogefuhl 718 Boxster S review. At timestamp 7:29 into the video Thomas (also a great reviewer, although his style is less humourous!) compares the exhaust sounds.
IMHO the S sounds a bit muted compared to the base.

See what you think...
