Ryan,
1) As sad as it sounds, your clutch symptom is a relatively frequent Cayman S issue (does not happen on the 5-speed Cayman models). My car had it too.
2) However, it is typically NOT caused by the Master Cylinder, but rather the Slave Cylinder. So until your Porsche dealer fixes the actual cause of the problem, it will recur again and again.
3) Even though there are many reported cases - and I consider it a safety issue -Porsche has so far not reacted with a recall.
For further info go to this site: http://www.caymanclub.net/cayman-com...-registry.html

Greetings, Rainer

I believe that your local Porsche dealer has received the info from the home office informing the dealership to replace your defective slave cylinder for a new one at no cost to you.
