The 2018 Consumer Reports Buying Guide

On page 191 of Consumer Reports 2018 Buying Guide the 2014 Porsche Cayman is listed as a used car to "Avoid".  Can you shed any light on this?  The listing did not specify what issues were reported.  I own a 2014 Cayman which has been flawless to date.

I can not for the life of me get the windshield on my 987  2007 Cayman S   clean. It appears to be the OEM GLASS       Saint-Gobain Sekurit  DOT617 AS1 M452   43R  -  002687       E8 CCC   E000234   MADE IN CZECH REPUBLIC.

If it gets least bit fogged its and very difficult to see out of.   Thanks in advance for any suggestions.  JPB

How do I get my 981 on four jack stands safely?

Pedro has described a technique for getting a 986/987 up on jack stands using a floor jack bascially getting the stands under the front jack points and then lifting the rear of the car with the floor jack and placing jack stands under the rear jack points. My question is where, if there is a safe place (for me and the car), can I position the saddle of the floor jack on my 981? I would really appreciate a photo if it is possible to jack up the rear from the middle somewhere.

Thanks for your time and expertise.

Does anyone know the naming origin of Cayman

Trying to find the origin of the Cayman naming convention. Google search does not offer much and wondering if anyone here knows.

Shop/Repair Manual

I'm looking for a reasonably priced shop or repair manual for my 2015 Cayman S.  My intention is not to do an engine or transmission repair but rather, perform some of the routine maintenance on my own.  Last time I took it to the dealer for it's annual srvice, they told me it was time to change the cabin air filter at a price of $400.00.  Since I'm not getting any cabin odors, I declined with the thought that I could do it myself.  Even though I have done lots of repairs on my own, I could not find the location of the filter.

Looking for best practice on using jack stands with Cayman

I have watched numerous videos, read my Porsche User Manual, and searched the internet on this topic.  My 2008 Cayman seems to have 4 and only 4 places under the car that is acceptable to lift the car off the ground.  These are small, reinforced circles (buttons) just behind the front wheels and just forward of the rear wheels.  This presents a MAJOR challenge if you want to pull all 4 wheels at one time.  Brake jobs, Brake fluid flush, etc are just two of many reasons someone may want to do this.
