That eco tax is brutal! I love my Cayman but the Alpine + 60k euro in watches sounds better :)

Porsche Cayman GTS 4.0.

 By: amanico : September 25th, 2021-08:31
This morning, I took a good 30 minutes to play with the Porsche configurator and had a " my best Cayman game ". I opted for the 4.0 version. Why? Because of its noble motor, compared to the 2.0 Turbo of the other Caymans, or the 1.8 Turbo of my Alpine. Be...  

It's a very fine sportscar

I had a green one for a day nicely spec'd with PCCB. It was a lot of fun. As expected the engine was nice but the suspension was the highlight of the test drive, damping was superb. It was so good that it's the first thing my wife commented on, she was su...  

The Cayman is a stunner.

Well aware of the Porsche ethos but always disliked the 911 style. Purely on aesthetics. The Cayman however is sublime. I was told that if the power plant was beefed up it would outperform the 911 but of course that would have been a marketing problem. Un... 

Uh Oh, Nicolas....

Hi Nicolas,

the 718 Cayman GTS 4.0 and the 718 GT4 are different cars. The GT4 has a completely different suspension, wheels, tires etc. and 420 hp vs. 400 hp. The look is different too and, of course, the price. 😂

Nice one. Do you like red? :)

My direct neighbor has a GT4...great car. Very pure. He has done a fair amount of upgrades, not that any are needed. It's an amazing drive and sounds terrific.

Funny, I just have one 718 GTS for the week

And took it to the holy trinity of Swiss mountain passes this morning. Will share drive impressions in another post, some stuff I loved, some I really disliked Cheers Seb

Still waiting

All-around fantastic car, Nicolas..

Hope you can acquire one. If not this one, maybe a late-model pre-owned one. I once owned a beautiful 2012 Cayman R (in Meteor Grey) for 6.5 years. It was lovely to look at and absolutely awesome to drive. I sold it in 2019 only because of a desire to str... 

Funny, I’ve done the same thing with the same car.

Is PASM worth the extra money?

That I don't know...

I’m not that much of a car guy like you folks but i do love car design..

 By: Echi : September 26th, 2021-06:57
And in this regard, my fave porsche is easily a “basic” Cayman S. I play with the configurator purely for looks alone and settled with this one.. black, red interior with the fatter 5 spoke rim. The other configurator I play with is the Jeep wrangler 2 do...  

Aaah, my friend, I like your philosophy. For me too, a car like this or an Alpine is used 95% on the roads and 5% on tracks.

 By: amanico : September 26th, 2021-07:04
I love cruising for 500, or 1000, or 1500 kilometers in one day. The feeling of the trip, te feeling of freedom, of adventure.... With a nice car, even better. And these are perfect for that. Now why the 4.0 is more my taste? Because of the fact that, for... 

Very cool but...

if you're going this far... get a 911. It will haunt you about 2 months after acquiring... 911, 911...
