    Awesome, thanks for the advice. Should I ever have a 718, I will definitely try this out. Even for one day... Smiley

    I've a much better idea Ferdie!

    Re: 718 Cayman S brief review

    I agree with dreamcar's brief review! Smiley

    Having driven several current 718 models, I much prefer the driving experience of the previous generation Boxster and Cayman with a naturally-aspirated six-cylinder engine! Smiley

    Looking forward to a return to form with the Porsche Cayman GT4 RS 4.0! Smiley

    I have shamelessly copied this from the Macan facelift thread here, but Alfa have proved that it is possible to produce amazing turbo-charged engines. If 718 GTS sounded and performed  even close to this Stelvio I would be battering down the showroom door at my Porsche dealer to buy one! Smiley

    The Macan Turbo with PSE sounds better... Smiley

    Generic turbo V6 sound, also keep in mind this is very likely a video with a pre-production factory car for a press release (Dubai?). If you want to know how the Stelvio is going to sound, listen to the Giulia QV. Smiley

    Performance? The 718 GTS should be similar (straight line) and definitely faster through twists and turns... Smiley

    I haven’t driven the 718 GTS yet, although i’ve been offered a 24 hour loan of one by my dealer once their demonstrator is on the road - he’s made no secret that he’d like to buy my 981 GTS. I have no problem with the performance or handling of the 718, it’s brilliant, but I can’t have a sports car with such a poor and un sports car like engine, it ruins everything Smiley

    Interesting...there are "tons" of GT4s currently in the German Porsche used car locator, though only a few GTS...Smiley ... as to the dealer's interest buying your car, that is something not really common for Germany, unless the dealer needs to get rid of a demo car or whatever - that is at least my experience...Did I tell already, that the 718 series is the first in the Porsche range I would never consider buying ? The turbos are a blast to drive but the overall experience and this noiseeeeee...Smiley


    Re: 718 Cayman S brief review

    My dealer had a beautiful slightly used all black GT4 with PCCB, a factory(!) car, for sale. Almost got it, this car was so beautiful but it didn't make any sense for me. It was gone after around four weeks, took quite long to sell it.

    Re: 718 Cayman S brief review

    We picked our 2.0 car up a few weeks back. I negotiated a great deal on it as it was a physical stock car. The dealer swapped out the silver Carrera S wheels that they had spec'ed it on  for a set of Carrera Sport wheels in gloss black. I had them fit the painted interior trim, leather armrest with crest and the guards red seatbelts to liven up the interior.

    Re: 718 Cayman S brief review

    I've said it before, and I'll say it again: Iain you are  master at specing a car !! Probably the best looking 718 I've ever seen angel


    Re: 718 Cayman S brief review

    Great looking car - guards red suits the Cayman well Smiley

    Very nice, just like my GT4 is (red painted trim looks better with the LWB) 😇
