For many, the 2014 Porsche Cayman GTS represents one of the finest sports cars money can buy. Sure, it’s not as powerful as a 911, but it also doesn’t carry the 911’s growing price tag. The Cayman GTS is the driver-focused Cayman. It’s mid-engine, rear-drive layout provides the framework for excellent balance. It also allows for more storage than the 911; a front trunk as well as a rear trunk.
To demonstrate the handling prowess of the GTS, Porsche created this video at an indoor go-kart track in northern Italy. The standard “Professional Driver, Closed Course, Do Not Attempt” rules apply here, but it is a great video showing the handling of the car. Also, with little background music, you can also hear the tire squeal and the engine noise.
Also, be sure to check out the time where we compared the Cayenne GTS version against the BMW X5 and the Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT.
