I've spent a fair bit of time behind the wheel of Boxsters and Caymans, both on the street and on track. I rarely have felt the car lacked for sufficient power. A stock S is more than enough power for the chassis, imho.

A second-hand Porsche with aftermarket forced induction sounds like a risky buy to me, with not enough 'reward' to offset the potential for headaches and heartaches.

Unless you're buying it private party from the owner and you're intimately familiar with the car's history I'd be wary.


That, and the engine's in the wrong place. :) But ignoring that glaring flaw -- in six months or so we'll see the 981 Cayman hit the showrooms and if history is any guide, maybe your MY09+ specimens without the IMS will reach a more attractive price point, too.
