Cayman GT4 Impresses as “Best Driver’s Car”

“Motor Trend” magazine, long the source for gearheads and car aficionados to drool over cars they either can’t afford or plan to buy, gathered an impressive crop of vehicles to compete for the title of “2015 Best Driver’s Car.” When it was all said and done, the Porsche Cayman GT4 impressed the editors enough to take a strong second place. All the cars went through a series of tests on closed tracks and open roads to determine which car the editors most love to drive. While numbers are important, the ones that scored the best just made the editors “smile a lot.” Go get your smile on with a test drive of the Porsche Cayman at Porsche of Tucson.

Step on the Gas and Get a Beautiful Noise

One of the editors likened the sound of stomping on the Cayman GT4 accelerator as a “musical sound,” which was “like ripping silk, amplified through the bell of a trumpet.” The Cayman’s flat-six engine sits directly behind you so you can hear and feel every horsepower as it propels you at break-neck speed down the track or highway. Unbelievable handling in corners and smooth braking make the Cayman GT4 a joy to drive, prompting adjectives like “devilish,” “racy,” “awesome,” and “absolutely phenomenal” from the editors. One even proclaimed “I’m in love.” The only car to rank higher than the Cayman was the Mercedes-AMG GT S, which has a price tag that runs about $65,000 more than the Porsche, as both were tested.

Cayman Racks Up Some Impressive Numbers

Although the numbers weren’t everything, the Porsche Cayman GT4 racked up some pretty impressive statistics during the Motor Trend tests. The car went from 0-60 miles per hour in just 4.1 seconds. It ran the quarter mile in 12.3 seconds with a top speed of 115.2 miles per hour. It only took 97 feet to come to a complete stop from 60 miles per hour, an important factor in any high performance vehicle. Porsche says the Cayman has a top track speed of 183 miles per hour. See why the Cayman delivered such an outstanding performance with a visit to Porsche of Tucson.

Porsche Delivers Safety Features on Cayman

It’s important for anyone driving a high-performance vehicle like the Cayman GT4 to understand their limitations, but Porsche has added a number of safety features to help avoid collisions. Six-piston aluminum brake calipers are on the front with four pistons on the rear to create a rapid response to any braking situation. Full-size driver and passenger air bags, along with side airbags, help protect occupants in the event of a crash. The Cayman GT4 also features electronic stability control and traction control to help drivers keep their vehicles on the road and heading in the right direction.
