Autocar reviews the new 981 Cayman S and absolutely adores it - Video
The new 981 Cayman has some big shoes to fill. The previous generation 987 Cayman was widely heralded as one of the best Porsche drivers cars ever made. The reviewer early on states that he did not think Porsche could top the previous generation model yet they have done exactly that. The car is quite simply showered with praise regarding its styling, balance, and power. Autocar just is in love with the vehicle and rightfully so, it's a superb drivers car.
Hearing how much Autocar loves the car is great but there are no test numbers. No acceleration tests, no skidpad numbers, no real numbers of any kind. A string of subjective opinions is nice but a review without hard data is just part of the picture and amounts to story time more than anything of real substance. Typical Autocar and typically British.
The review wraps up with the statement that the reviewer would take the Cayman S over any 911 any day of the week. That is a bold statement indeed.
