    Agree on the Cayman GTS - great car. I sold my GT4 and got a Spyder instead (got a deal that was simply too hard to turn down). It is a close run thing but the Spyder is the better road car IMHO. You cannot beat the top down experience either

    It has a great spec as well including PCCB's. That's a first for me on a Porsche as I've never ticked that box when spec'ing a car due to the cost of the option in relation to the overall value of the car as I usually don't hang on to them for longer than 12 - 24 months. I think the Spyder could well be a much longer term proposition though as both the styling and engines in the 718 models fail to excite me in the way the 981 did when launched. Toying with a trip to the factory to spec up a new targa with the Exclusive team though

    i hate to say it, but having just spent the afternoon at the Porsche Centre at Silverstone driving a pdk Cayman , I quite like that gearbox.

    and I'm a diehard manual fan.

    Chalk'n'Cheese The F1 is last century's technology the PDK is on a completely different level, you need to look at a 458 or 488 if you want the same experience.

    The F1 is an afterthought designed to appeal to the "Ladies" in the same way that Tiptronic was added to the 911

    BTW do you have a bus pass yet

    Too funny

    The 360 was designed as an F1 car. The three pedal variant was offered to keep the oldies happy

    the 488 is the one I want next or the new dino but will wait a while for prices to drop a bit - of course the market could tank in which case I will buy a classic.


    bus pass - speak for yourself !
