CLOSE CALL!! On My First Time Driving a Porsche Cayman GT4

1 600 zhlédnutí 34K

A year ago Fabrice ( fab_gt4club... ) took me out for my first ever lap in a Cayman GT4 ( www.youtube.com/watch?v=b5fCs... ). This time, he allowed me to drive his car myself and I almost ended up buying the car off him...

    4:05 why black porsch braked and then why white porsch braked after he(white) changed his lane

    The super long gearing is due to Porsche being forced by the EPA to have the car pass the noise test in 3rd gear, while automatics can choose whatever gear they want. In general new cars with manual gearboxes feature gear ratios that make them slower than automatic options. This also happens to save fuel for better ratings (milage, CO2, taxes).

    Your downshifts seemed to be clunky. Did not you feel comfortable with pedals? Other than that, exellent driving.

    Thank you! This video is a treasure trove with not only lines but shift points throughout the track. GT4 really had long shift points with a lot of corners in 2nd gear at 100+kph and 3rd gear running up to 180kph! Power really seems to come on 7k rpm and the engine doesn't sound strained at lower limits of redline. Question, downshifting to 2nd prior to many corners, I didn't notice any torque like drag that would make the backend swing out. Would that be due to it being a mid-engine, the long gears in the transmission, or combination? Also, didn't seem much heel-toe was required.

    I can see that the gearing is very long. You're sifting from 3rd to 4th at 165-168km/h. For example M2 3rd-4th is like 145km/h i believe

    I think the black Porsche is more to blame then the GT4 (from my perspective at least). Glad nothing bad happened. This looked so much fun, specially with the manual. Must be a treat to drive. Fair play to the owner or should I say former owner for giving you the chance to do so.

      I learned to drive decades ago when automatics were rare: four-on-the-floor was the norm and with increasing experience changing gear did not need a lot of focus, especially when all-synchro boxes became common. The more mechanically empathic you were, the more changing gear became "automatic" in nature and lessened the mental load. These days, with an auto box I will use the paddle shift to over-ride it if I sense the balance is not right for a given situation.
