What is Project 987.2?
Project 987.2 is my quest to optimize the performance and aesthetics of my 2012 Porsche Cayman S through using only bolt-on parts. Intially, I just planned on a street car, but as I've gotten more and more involved in HPDE (High Performance Driver Education) the project has become more and more focused on performing well on-track while remaining a good street car.
A number of companies have been very supportive in this project and I greatly appreciate their partnership. A list of these partners appears later on this page. Please visit them if you're in need of cool stuff for your car!
Why these companies?
Unlike many (most?) YouTubers, I don't seek out free stuff and then include it in the project and call it fantastic. Instead, I look carefully at what products are available and decide which ones are the best fit. Only then do I ask the company if they'd like to join the project as a partner. If they say no, that's fine, I'm going to use that product anyway because I've decided that it's best for my project. If they say yes, great! Most companies will provide parts at a 40-65% discount, although a few have provided stuff completely gratis. Regardless, I'm grateful for all my partners, large or small, no matter their level of support.
I should note that there are cases where I find multiple, equally good products. In that case, well, I'm going to go with the one that costs me the least out-of-pocket. I mean, I'm not stupid ...
Are I still looking for partners?
I'd be lying if I said I believed I had thought of everything that could be done to make the Cayman into the best street stud and track terror it can be. If you have an interesting product that you think could be a great addition to this project, email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and let me know!
