Porsche 718 Cayman & the Technicolour Dreamcoat

  718Cayman “Let me have cars about me that are genuine,

nimble sports cars and such as never sleep.

Yond Cayman has a crisp and hungry look.

Such cars are fun to dash around with.”

True, not quite the Julius Caesar as you may know him in his famous aside from Shakespeare’s ‘Julius Caesar’. Above all, there are no casualties to mourn for. Quite the contrary. Here is a type of a sports car that is utter joy to drive. Hence the many different colours for having fun …

This is why I call my little blog “718 Cayman and the amazing technicolour dreamcoat” as direct allusion to the first Tim Rice / Andrew Lloyd Webber Musical.

Any “old” Porsche is just so very Porsche – the sheer sight, the sound, the drive. Mesmerising. And surely here is a new family whose 3 numbers will have you transfixed – be it as Boxster, be it as Cayman. A Porsche simply is a Porsche, is a Porsche, is a Porsche…

And let me not forget: The 718 Cayman really is reminscent of her famous predecessor 718 of the late 1950ies and even more so its coupé version (718 GTR)  that did so well in Targa Florio, Sebring and of course Le Mans. You need to look at the curves of the design – and you’ll see it straight away. Cheers to Peter Varga and his team.

Have fun! And as for an academic footnote:

These matching shoes are made for driving - not the matching nail varnish. What a relief.

PS: Rally legend Walter Röhrl can bring out the worst in any Porsche. Bliss to drive with him. Such a ferocious, yet precise and clean manner of driving.

There is a certain difference between his driving ...
