    Re: Cayman GT4

    St Barth was 26-28c and a 10-20kph breeze, most homes do not have air conditioning in the main area. We only used it in the bedrooms. Most restaurants also do not have air conditioning and are open air.

    Even in hot places driving open in the morning or at night is a joy. That's why many cars are convertible in Miami. Of course if you wear a suit at noon you won't open the top... Still buying a couple doesn't make much sense when you can buy a convertible version. Now cars are designed from the ground up to be convertible and the performance difference is small to even worry about it. Car get heavier but top mechanism get lighter, reducing the delta. Also torsionally has greatly improved in open cars, and I won't even get into carbon tub car designs. More importantly maybe, driving a convertible even with the top closed gives you the impression that your ride is special and adds to the ownership experience. There is one downside: they are more pricey... But you might get some of the price difference in resale.

    The sun can get very stroke in California even when it's not too hot out . Though yesterday was a perfect day.  Especially for January.  

    Here you can also see why in for me, performance above 120mph is 100% irrelevant

    Id like to see you not break a sweat here today RC. Its summer. 34C 96% humidity. Only way you do not break sweat in my country is you not move a muscle :-)

    Awful, thats just like Baltimore;  Mark, please tell us the redeeming featuresSmiley


    Re: Cayman GT4

    Just had an update from my dealer. My car is sitting in Emden awaiting despatch to Sheerness so it may possibly arrive in the UK either at the end of this week or early next week so not much longer until it lands with my dealer.


    Re: Cayman GT4

    Congrats!!  We're getting a snowy winter here - no sports car driving this week (but fun in the Evo)...

    I was never really able to answer you about the gearing in Colorado (snowy weather in mountains), so please post your impressions from down under (should be more accommodating weather there).  Don't be shy about using 1st gear on really tight uphill corners (that really helped me in Switzerland).

    It's true, the car has such nice aesthetic upgrades that any color suits it well.

    I'd never thought I'd choose a white car in my whole life as I don't like white for a car, as it shows every default, seal, line , ... But at the end I felt the car was such a beauty that it could even handle a white color. White also visually extends, makes it look more purposeful, less toyish maybe Smiley

    I was also happy to be able to sit in the GT4, which is specced almost like mine, with Clubsport package, and I'm happy to say the bucket seats seem just perfect for my anatomy indecision They're deeper than my old Recaros in the 964RS and also grippier.

    Re: Cayman GT4

    Yeah, you should be banned - this pic is as bad as all the others you posted. You should perhaps move to a more mature Cayman GTS for future shots- I will be happy to assist...Smiley 

    Great  shot! Smiley
