Astonishing Sunday with Classic to New Porsche Display

PCA Grand Prix Region held their Annual Concours d' Elegance in the Lakewood Country Club last May 18, 2014. It was a great sunday with Beautiful people and Gorgeous Cars. The club even had a private viewing of the new MACAN. They even used the miniature model of the car as part of their trophy. Very creative.

Installing the 981 X73 Rear Sway Bar Upgrade

An easy handling upgrade for your non-X73 Sport Suspension equipped 981 Cayman or Boxster is to replace the stock rear sway bar for an X73 Sport Suspension rear sway bar.

On a PASM-equipped 981, the stock rear bar is actually hollow, with a weight of ~4.65 pounds, whereas the X73 rear bar is a solid unit at a weight of ~8.5 pounds with only marginal size difference. As you can imagine, a solid bar is going to be stiffer than an equivalently sized hollow bar, giving you better handling characteristics.

Swapping out the stock bar for the X73 bar is a very easy process. There are only 4 bolts and 2 nuts that have to be removed.
