How many base 987s are on this site?

Seems like every 987 is an "S".


I honestly have seen about....3.... including myself!


Post if you know anyone who has one on here or if you yourself have one.


I'd like to know I'm not alone

Thanks

John Y, except for switching to 17s, is the final spec the same as in this thread?

As a former 987 base owner, I still think that model is the best bang for the buck offered by Porsche.

So not only are there non-S 987 owners here, but many of us live by you.

I am thinking party at Bavarian Motorist's house!

Yes - when you look at the ratios, we essentially have gears 1,2,3,4 & 6 - basically the 6 speed without gear 5. That one didn't seem necessary to me for driving in this country and not seeing much track time.

Hmmm... non metallic paint, heated seats and a CD changer. I wanted to get more "base" than that, but I really wanted those heated seats...

Thanks - yeah, ultimately it came down to the somewhat better comfort that the 17s offer (especially on a non-PASM car) and my desire to reduce unsprung weight and rotational mass on a car without a whole hell of a lot of torque, like ours. It probably borders on the obsessive, but hey - that's me!

I probably could live with the 18- in. ride and still like the design better, I also think they look like more of a "right" size for the proportions of this car. But the 17s have grown on me, and I really kind of like the 'retro' high sidewall look.

Almost - the switch to 17s, and I opted for sand beige instead of black, under the weight of popular opinion...will probably add a forest green rear center console from Bumper Plugs in the future, too; I tried too late to add it to my order.

Can't wait to pick it up and start logging some miles!
