Yes you could get it to oversteer - but you really had to toss it and then stab the juice.... then with the all wheel drive -- you just punched it and it would pull straight out of a corner. Amazing handling - but BORING as all get out to drive. Everything worked too well. I got it to understeer once -- then you just slammed the gas down hard and dialed in more turn... and the front end pulled right out of it. Just stupid easy to drive.

Car would have been fun to gut it out = cage it - take all the smog crap off - make it all loud.... but for that kind of money I can have 4 cars like I have... so why bother.

I'm sorry...



The Cayman -- now that's a cool car -- and frankly -- I think I'd rather have one of them than the 911....

One of 'em (full race prep) kicked my butt at an event I ran the Audi R8 in. I could not catch that little sucker!
As Bad Ron says, GTFO. No way you would choose a GT3/GT3RS over a Cayman.

Agreed the Cayman is an improvement over the Boxster.

If you want to watch a guy haul some ass on Thunderhill -- and especially T6 thru T9 --- watch this guy.

There's a bunch of dead video while he sits in the pits and some more while under yellow caution -- so just skip ahead a few minutes... Patch this video into your 63" big screen -- crank the sound up and watch some driving... Yippppeeeee

A Cayman-S is plenty bad-a$$ for most folks.

A driver friend of mine told me once that if you can be fast in a 911 you can be fast in anything.
