Darn! And I though that the Cayenne Diesel was the best car Porsche currently makes. Apparently I was wrong, they can still hold their own when it comes to gasoline-powered cars also. Or so it is apparent after driving this little red Cayman S.
First thing when seeing it I said to myself: "Hot damn, check out the sexy back on that one! Ya know I'm not talkin' hooey!". Then I proceeded to knock the rear hood, hoping to find out how much horses this baby has underneath that nice red booty. Well, for the first time in my life, the knocking brought no information. Not a single thing!
You can imagine the fact that I was furiously angry about it, this had never happened to me! Whenever I would knock on the hood of a car I would instantly know what type of engine it has, how much power it delivers and all kinds of technical stuff. This time I received no feedback whatsoever!
The plot thickened after I opened both hoods and realized that the engine was never to be seen! With a candid camera face I was then instructed about the fact that the Porsche Cayman has the engine positioned right in the middle of the car, behind the seats. I gotta admit, it had me fooled for a minute or so, and that only happens to me when I drink too much moonshine from my colored neighbor Jethro.
All in all, this is a pretty well-made car, it goes fairly fast and it looks like a million. The only problem that I can find with it is that fact that I have no roads to drive it on here in the wilderness. In conclusion, the only Porsche I would buy if I won the lottery would probably be the Cayenne, at least with that I wouldn't have to worry about scraping the undercarriage at every bump on the road.
