Another car from last Sunday’s “wheels” post! The new Porsche 718 Cayman GTS sits at the top of the (road car) range and if you’re wondering what the “G”, “T” and “S” stands for, it’s “Great”, “Terrific” and “Stupendous”! (Okay, it stands for “Gran Turismo Sport” but we’re sure you catch our drift!)
Here’s what the editors of the top automotive mags said about the 718 Cayman GTS:
WHAT CAR? “Not only does it offer one of the best chassis that money can buy, but also the new turbocharged 2.5-litre four-cylinder engine is beautifully flexible and delivers performance that feels perfectly proportioned to fast and flowing B-roads.”
CAR AND DRIVER “Finding its rhythm on a track or a deserted road is a pinnacle experience among any of today’s sports cars. These Porsches are cars that talk, cars that listen, and cars that dance confidently across the edge of grip and back—top or no top.”
CAR “The new 718 Cayman GTS is a master in terms of sensory punch, too. Stimulating visual factors include the revised front bumper sporting a bigger air intake, darkened head- and tail lights, twin exhaust pipes framed by a charcoal diffuser, black wheels shod with 20-inch tyres and a couple of prominent air deflectors.”
AUTOCAR “The best bit of this car however, and arguably of all Caymans, is the way it handles. It’s vice-free, mid-engined sports car nirvana. There are all the best bits of putting the engine directly behind the driver with seemingly none of the drawbacks. It’s a guilt-free bacon sandwich, a pub crawl without the hangover, paintballing that doesn’t leave you in agony.”
Need we say more? Probably not! Come view it at our showroom soon. It’s worth the visit!
