I bought a rebuilt the cheapest Porsche 718 Cayman S on the internet. There wasnt one single panel which wasn't damaged. The rear quarter, the roof and bumpers all had to be replaced and whilst i was there i upgraded them to GT4 body parts. Now that i have rebuilt it ive decided to bring it to Porsche Solihull for them to inspect my work!

  • I’ll never forget being 12 years old and on the way from my grandparents, we stopped off at Porsche Towcester, my 9 year old brother was obsessed with cars and we were greeted by one of the sales staff and my dad explained that the young lads loved cars and just wanted to have a look, they said this wasn’t an issue! 5 minutes later the sales staff came back with posters of the new 911, carrera GT and the cayenne for myself and my brother also a couple of pens, key rings and baseball caps ! I’ve currently got an RS7 but my next car will be a Porsche from this dealership! ❤

    • I think every single one of your haters in this comment thread are missing the point. It’s not even just a medium of KZburn, it’s actually being good at documenting yourself and the process of expressing your love for a certain type of car in a way that a very very large audience around the world can understand. The patience to walk through every step, and explain each problem in detail, while filming/showcasing the struggle of getting certain parts, or making the best with what you’ve got, is really entertaining. So when the original comment mentions that Porsche should be proud to have this guy walking in, they’re not saying that the average car enthusiast/mechanic should be welcomed in with open arms. They are saying that someone who puts this much time into their craft to share every single detail about the process with millions of people is something anyone company would love to have in their scope. These are the guys that get brand deals, favors, invites to events, etc etc. It’s pretty ignorant to not understand how this could apply to so many things to.. yes, there are millions of incredible singers, chefs, glass blowers, dog trainers.. but not every single one of them, or even a very large population of them, will actually open a restaurant, get signed to a record label, open a head shop, or win a dog show. I literally did not have to type all this but fuckin haters man. “Herrr derrrre there are so many people who do this for a living so why jump on his dick about it?” Just shut up. 😂 it’s literally what KZburn and the internet is made for. Great personalities showing the awesome stuff lots of people love. I’m out.

  • Many congratulations on a big thumbs following an inspection at the Porsche Workshop. All your hard work & determination paid off, and you now have a fabulous looking GT4 Cayman that you should be proud of. It was a good idea to delay the alignment check until after the replacement chassis 'brace' has been fitted. Boxsters, Caymans & 911s are all very sensitive to wheel alignment, and having all four wheels aligned properly will make a big difference to how the car feels, responds and drives. Keep up the great work! 👍👍

  • As a first time Porsche (981 Cayman S) owner as of 8 months ago, like you, I can attest to the dealership staff treating you like royalty, even in the US. Even if it's a second hand car that you didn't buy from their dealership like me. You drive into the bay, give your keys to the valet attendant, and the sliding glass doors automatically open up for you like you're walking on some sort of red carpet. They give you free Porsche merch at the store in the dealership. But then again, they charge you like royalty as well. I guess that's how they afford the $10,000 USD automatic coffee/espresso machine, massive TV's in the lounge, massive computer monitors on all the desks, etc. The owners in the lounge, however, are not nearly as down to earth in my experiences and can be quite stuck up. Even after graduating from a automotive tech program, their mechanics have to go through at least 12 months of additional, Porsche specific education at Porsche's mechanic school. They have three levels: bronze, silver, and gold. Each level requires a certain level of experience at Porsche dealerships and passing numerous written and practical exams. Gold technicians have to have at least 5 years of experience

  • Your video is really special. No one has done such a video where a wrecked car is repaired and then brought to the main dealership to have it inspect. It is so interesting and refreshing, especially with tons of car vids out there these days. I've also watched the one on how you made it and I think you are one genuine guy that's worth following for a long time. You are funny, well mannered, hard working, and down to earth. Love it so much. I am following you from today. Keep it up and keep it going!

  • I enjoyed this a great deal. Thank you! I'm not mechanical at all but I recognize what hard work is. We've been rebuilding our personal saw mill here on our farm in Arkansas, US. Thanks again I'll add you for sure.

  • This video actually helped me out because I actually didn't know that the O2 sensor effected gas usage. I've need a O2 sensor for the last few months and have been putting it off because of price but I will probably save money by fixing it.

  • Props to @porsche for helping him out with this. Makes me want to buy one even more. I've always appreciated their vehicles and I hope to one day buy one with the proceeds from my channel.

  • well done Porsche, could easily have sent you on your way with a "non approved" repair to one of their cars. You went in for an inspection and service work and looks like you were treated as if you were buying a new car. Josh seems a top bloke, watched your journey with the car probably learnt a lot as thats not the sort of thing he probably gets to see

  • That was probably the best video I've ever watched about rebuilds so professional and they where such sports at the dealership what a classy bunch it was a genuine welcome and interest from them Looking forward to the wheel alignment video Regards Haley

  • Love your channel and your energy. The Porsche tech made a great point about wearing eye protection. I know it may not be the best while filming but from experience I can tell you it’s a lifesaver. Please wear eye protection so you can keep fixing cars and living your dreams and not get hurt. Best to you and wish I was in the UK to have a chance to meet you. Maybe you can tour the US one day 👍

  • Honestly -- amazing job!!! As always. Now you fully build both of my favorite cars to be at least in reach somehow anytime - the RS5 and a Cayman 😮

  • Awesome job. Like I’ve said before you are very talented and I can assure you, that you are doing more to your cars than most mechanics do in a lifetime of wrenching. We can be so critical of ourselves and what we do, but from watching your videos you have nothing to be ashamed of. You are doing stellar work and being a great influence for others to get in there and get their hands dirty.👏

  • Hey Mat - just discovered you. Love your content and watched the Lambo project just now. May i ask if it is planned to put in a rollcage and fire suppression system? If not i think it would really be nice especially with such a crazy fast car. A big car guy in Germany (Philip Kaess) lost his build 1000hp Limo to engine fire - a fire suppression system would've probably saved most of the car.

  • Good work! I owned a rebuilt 2005 Lotus Elise that had been absolutely destroyed in the rear left quarter but it was rebuilt and accumulated an extra 35k miles since the accident. It's with its new owner now and never had any mechanical issues that weren't simply caused by old Lotus stuff. It was a great buy!

  • Mate really hope you manage to get the gt3 fixed for a decent price ,I own one as well and someone like you deserves to enjoy a car like this , the hard work will be worth it in the end. Ps , another thing to look forward too is that you won’t have an opf monitor on the US car so when it comes back to the uk you won’t have any issue in putting on a full exhaust like I did and have to mess about with remaps, (I went with just a back box in the end ),I would recommend jcr. Good luck and I look forward to the progress on the next vid!

  • This is my favourite car so far I think. There's something about these 718s that I really like, especially with the GT4 body-kit on. I also thought I'd say just how impressed I am with the feedback given by Porsche on it. Considering how wrecked it was, to have Porsche inspect it and give such positive feedback is amazing. Just highlights how much of an awesome job Mat has done on it.
