PORSCHE CAYMAN S
Oriol Servia has driven for
both Dreyer & Reinbold
in Sao Paulo. In recent
times, he’s also tested both
a previous-gen Porsche 911
as well as the McLaren
MP4-12C for RACER.
SERVIA RIGHT four-door sedan, the Porsche range
exudes quality throughout. The base
Cayman (275hp), and the S in particular,
are highly desirable cars in their own right.
The reason for that is simple: handling
and balance. As Servia states, it’s no
coincidence that Indy cars, Formula 1
cars and top-level sports prototypes have
their engines in between the axles and
behind the driver. To him, it’s the proper
place for an engine in any sports car.
Front- and rear-engined cars, he says,
are prone to requiring corrections when
things get bumpy, often feeling like the
front and back of the car are wanting
to go in different directions.
