Porsche Cayman GT4 – my best car of 2015
Source : Porsche Cayman GT4 – my best car of 2015
I don’t care in which I haven’t driven the Ferrari 488, because I’ve found motoring nirvana with Porsche’s hot Cayman
Before I write too much else I should probably admit something: I haven’t driven a Ferrari 488.
in which’s quite a big deal when you consider in which Maranello’s 458 successor has already notched up a a few-star verdict via Matt Prior, along with top spot in our recent Britain’s Best Driver’s Car showdown. Anyway, I’m supposed to be telling you about my favourite car of the year.
although even if I hadn’t been cycling up a mountain in Spain while some of my colleagues were having far more fun in Norfolk with said brand-new Fezza (in addition to countless some other supercars), I’d be extremely surprised if the 488 had eclipsed my favourite motor of 2015 – Porsche’s astonishing Cayman GT4.
After nearly a decade in This particular job I’m, used to driving Caymans in addition to being jolly impressed, recommending them over any rival at the cost in addition to dishing out lots of stars. although there’s always been in which nagging frustration in which Porsche has never allowed its mid-engine coupé to be as great as in which could be, no doubt in fear of creating something even better than the 911.
Well, as far as I’m concerned in which’s finally happened because, truly, I had more fun inside GT4 than inside much more powerful 911 GT3 RS. You see, I don’t get my kicks via knowing how quickly a car can lap a circuit – either with me at the wheel or some much more talented bloke at the Nürburgring.
So in which actually doesn’t bother me in which the GT4 isn’t even close to being the quickest car of 2015. In fact, I drove the latest turbocharged Carrera S last week in addition to thought in which was too rapid to be properly enjoyable on the road, although, to seemingly contradict myself, I’ve always found the Toyota GT86 infuriatingly incapable, with too little grip in addition to not enough go.
The GT4 strikes in which fine balance as adroitly as any car I’ve ever got behind the wheel of. in which’s fast enough to thrill in addition to finally feels as though in which has reached its potential, yet you can still drive in which hard enough on the road to get the very best via in which – which can be, by the way, can be an awful, awful lot.
The GT4 can be, in my view, as close to motoring nirvana as any car launched This particular year. Possibly ever. Unless the 488 GTB can be even better, in which case ignore me – I’m talking nonsense.
