2015 Porsche Cayman GTS Meets A Go-Kart Track: Video


Automotive journalism is full of cliches, and one of the most-used is the term "go-kart handling." It applies to any car that's particularly lithe, and MINI has practically trademarked it.

However, it's rare that a sporty car is ever driven on an actual go-kart track. That's where we find a 2015 Porsche Cayman GTS in this video released by its maker.

The GTS seems like the perfect car for the job. Along with its Boxster GTS sibling, it's currently the sportiest model in Porsche's mid-engined sports car range. Its 3.4-liter flat-six produces 340 horsepower and 280 pound-feet of torque, increases of 15 hp and 7 lb-ft over the Cayman S. GTS models also get two key performance features--the Sport Chrono Pack and Porsche Active Suspension Management (PASM)-standard.

With all of that hardware, it's not surprising that the Cayman GTS makes mincemeat of the indoor go-kart track. The lap isn't too dramatic, likely because the cars doesn't really have room to get its tail out, but it shows just how precisely the Porsche can be placed into a corner.

Maybe Porsche is onto something here. With so many cars apparently vested with "go-kart handling," maybe it would be better to hold time attack events on go-kart tracks. In a well-ventilated building, of course.
