Essais Porsche 718 Cayman et Macan: la tournée des 2.0

Mon dernier Cayman essayé était un type 987 phase 2 de 320 chevaux avec son 6 cylindres à plat explosif, notamment dans nos nombreux tunnels en Savoie. J’en garde un super souvenir, et le roadster qui me suivait également. La troisième génération, 718, a troqué son 6 à plat contre un 4 à plat, retour …

Porsche Cayman S Long-Term Update: 30K in and It Still Cuts Like a Knife

2014 Porsche Cayman S LT Update
WHAT WE LIKE: What we like best is not its rousing engine note or its eagerness to turn or its excellent steering system or its near-perfect shifter. No, what we like best about our long-term Cayman S—now 75 percent of the way through its stay with us—is that a drive in it is an automotive palate cleanser. The Cayman S’s clarity of purpose and deliciously mechanical nature is the perfect salve for our enthusiast hearts after commuting in overwrought crossovers or whittling away hours of our lives in CVT-equipped econoboxes or driving any number of cars that, despite excellent performance, fail to connect with their drivers. Nothing that we’ve encountered in our 30,000 miles with the car has diminished the Cayman S’s place as our North Star of sports-car goodness. We have no proof of this, but we’re convinced that the word “love” has never appeared so many times in any of the logbooks of previous long-term cars. The most recent note in the book reads, “I wish this car’s odometer would stop working so that we might keep it forever.” READ MORE ››

Knife Cuts to the Chase, Stabs Our Long-Term Porsche Cayman S’s Floorboard

2014 Porsche Cayman S

Operating the sort of test fleet we do, it is with fair regularity that we encounter the occasional cracked windshield, bent wheel rim, or chipped hood. If Michigan’s deteriorating infrastructure isn’t crumbling and subsequently being launched by other motorists at the fronts of our test cars, it’s blowing apart other folks’ tires, pieces of which are then launched at our test cars. (Our Cadillac CTS Vsport found this out the hard way when it took a chunk of radial to its face last year.) But even we were shocked—or maybe impressed, even—when we discovered an 8-inch serrated kitchen knife embedded a good four inches deep in our long-term Porsche Cayman S’s underbody.

Road warrior Charley Ladd unsheathed the problem after stopping to investigate a strange scraping sound emanating from beneath our lovely red sports car. We’re not sure how long the knife had been forking the Porsche’s underside, but there it was, driven into a bonded seam in the floorboard underneath the passenger seat at a 30-degree angle, its handle pointed toward the front of the car. Unable to grab the kitchen weapon at the roadside from under the low-riding Cayman, Ladd brought the car back to C/D HQ and stuck it on the lift. Some determined tugging ripped the handle from the blade, requiring a second effort to completely free the knife from its moor.

There really is no moral to this, only that we’re glad the sharp tool didn’t end up in, say, one of the tires. We can’t really say, either, how it was that a relatively flimsy “titanium” blade made in China came to be driven so deeply into a tight body seam by happenstance. For now, the knife remains on display in our office, a spoil of our ongoing war with road detritus.
