The Review

With the LA auto show revealing the new Porsche Cayman R, I bugged a friend of a friend of mine to give me a joy ride in his own Porsche Cayman S. My mind was blown away by the sound of the engine. The smooth raspy sounding engine note was spine tingling. The ride of course was impressive too to say the least. The helm felt direct and pointy, much like an arrow. And like an arrow, you just need to point it at the apex of a corner and it will go wherever you want it to go. It almost feels telepathic. It's a hundred miles from your regular steering feel from a regular japanese sedan car. The suspension is squat under cornering loads. The electronic nannies are always working behind the scene to keep your ass safe. It's an exhilarating drive that is exciting but not life threatening. The interior is covered in leather and even the plastics feel so atas! It is indeed a special place to be even if you don't go full bore bonkers on the road. What has the new Cayman R got to offer on the table? A paltry upgrade of 10hp and some minor weight loss (mainly from omitting the air con and radio, which kinda makes the car unlivable in.) Will the new R sell? I have my doubts considering the Boxster Spyder hasn't been heard of much since it was unveiled. Sales dud? Perhaps. The spirit of the endeavor is to be commended while execution is indeed lacking. If you've got money to blow, look at a regular Cayman. I on the other hand will wait for GT5 =D 24th NOV!!! Yay!
