Some thoughts having jumped
So, I've been an owner of a new 15 leftover loaded coupe now for about 3 months that I got just under 17K off. It has been a brilliant addition to my fully specced Cayman GT4. One would probably ask the question why would anyone own both? The answer, cause I can!! The plan was that the Cayman was to be sent packing but honestly, both cars are exceptional for different reasons and I've had a change of heart. The Alfa is the far more involving car to drive on a day to day basis. The motor for example, for what it is and typical characteristics of a turbo motor, produces a decent amount of low end thrust. Combine the motor with the gearbox and the steering, you have a seriously direct car. I realize the Alfa may not be everyone's cup of tea but I have to think from a drivers perspective, its probably a car thats really overlooked. Combine the driving with the looks and of course exclusivity, its a fabulous car. I have just installed some wheels spacers on the Alfa. What a difference! Looking forward to tinkering some more. My GT4 has been an interesting experience. Built it last May, delivered in August, fully specced, ceramics, sport buckets, etc. 2 months in after normal break in procedure followed, I lose a motor. When I say a motor, I mean the complete motor. Porsche takes care of situation. I have to say I was impressed with the final outcome even if did take unusually long. So here i was, a tad discouraged that my beautiful GT4, had been ripped apart, then put back together. At one point, I was flirting with the idea of replacing the GT4 with a 991 GT3 but thought to myself, take the 4 to the track and finally get it out of your system. The last weekend in February, she had her maiden voyage. In all honesty, its the best car I've ever had on track. All we did was a mild alignment. To say the car was exceptional is a huge understatement. The car could use more power and better gearing and is a challenge to drive at the limit. But with that being said, what a car. I've raced, all over the country and even some parts of the world. I have to say that the GT4 is damn near perfect. I even drove a 991GT3 for a whole session. I can only describe that car as a video game. The GT4 will be receiving some upgrades to chase down those GT3s. Until then, I'm going to seriously enjoy these two.....Sparcodog
