Porsche GT3 Cup VS Cayman S @ MSR
I am behind a Porsche GT3 Cup car that is driven by a guy that says he is a Panoz "race car driver". But he has no clue of the line AND he drives really slow in the corners. but with the 100 HP difference he can pull me in the straights. If he was any good, a Cup Car should be running times in the 2:20's and I would be 2:30's But the guy is totally slowing me down.
I am experimenting with the new Traqmate and chase Cam using the Traqmate Studio to overlay the G meter and speedo. I don't have the tach wire connected yet. The camera mount is a bit too shaky. I am working to fix that problem.

Testing a Porsche Race Car at Sebring, FL
This is a 10 minute chronicle of my brother's first time driving his new Porsche race car at the legendary Sebring road course in FL.
The car currently is configured with an air cooled 3.4 liter normally aspirated Porsche 911 engine with individual throttle bodies for each cylinder. Hope to change to a water cooled 996 twin turbo engine sometime in the near future . . . but for now the relatively low horsepower air cooled engine is allowing to attempt to learn how to drive the 911 platform.
2006 Porsche Cayman S A2335
If you're looking to lead a life of quiet solitude and inconspicuous silence, then it's best you look elsewhere for a car. The engineers at Porsche were not thinking to create a dime-a-dozen looking car when they created the 2006 Porsche Cayman S. If you're up to the experience, you can enjoy the excitement and attention that come with your beautiful new Black 2006 Porsche Cayman S, with xenon's, heated seats, Bose surround system, and automatic tiptronic transmission($3210 upgrade). With its undeniable styling and noteworthy Porsche engine power, this is the car to own and drive. It has plenty of brawn to go with its beauty. Let's see what else your new car has to offer.
EXTERIOR: The Black paint enveloping the car is absolutely gorgeous. The paint has no scratches, dents, or other major blemishes to speak of. It is truly beautiful. Complementing the sexy looks of the car is a very muscular 3.6L H6 engine with 295 horsepower and 252 lb-ft of torque. Despite all this it still gets remarkable gas mileage at about 20 city and 27 highway MPG. Helping to add to the already sporty looks of this car is a speed-dependent spoiler and 18" Porsche wheels with tires in excellent condition. To help you see where you're going there are fog lights and also upgraded Bi-Xenon headlights ($1090 upgrade) with "coming home" function. The heated power windows are in working order as are the 2-speed wipers with delay control and heated washer nozzles. You'll also be pleased to know that your new Cayman comes with the remainder of its 4 year/50,000 mile basic and powertrain factory warranties. This car just visited the local Porsche dealership for servicing and is ready to hit the road with you behind the wheel.
INTERIOR: Porsche calls the interior color treatment Sand Beige. This great color fits well with the awesome exterior paint. The leather upholstery is very clean as are the matching carpets. There are no unpleasant odors or other issues. The car just smells clean and fresh. The clean and comfortable seats are full power( with memory driver side) for easy adjusting ($1500 upgrade). The seat are also heated for those cool days ($480 upgrade). The air conditioning works great and will keep you and your passenger comfortable in the heat and then can adjust automatically when you change the temperature($550 upgrade). We know you love to listen to music while you're cruising and Porsche has provided you with a great Bose Surround System ($905 upgrade) AM/FM stereo with CD player for quality sound. Some other great features are: adjustable steering column, leather-wrapped three spoke wheel with Porsche crest, trip computer, central locking system with remote control, HomeLink universal transmitter, cruise control, alarm system, rear window defroster, driver and passenger illuminated vanity mirrors, and immobilizer system.
