    In the world of sports car design the mid-engine layout is king, which makes the Porsche Cayman S one of the reigning blue-bloods of the high performance niche. The Porsche Cayman S displays two unmistakable tells that it’s dropped a pair of cylinders in favor of a.

    About logo. The Porsche logo is a coat of arms that shows: a riding horse and a deer antler, framed by red stripes. The emblem is dedicated to the home city of the concern - Studgart. Strips and horns are symbols of the city, and the stallion is depicted in connection with the fact that originally in place of the city, in the year 950 there was a horse farm, around which a whole city was gradually built.

    REVIEW: Turbocharged Cayman a true Porsche

    And they have a point, if, like them, you wish to live in the past. There are many other tweaks, including to the styling, infotainment and some GT4 -spec bits in the suspension, but engine aside, the main theme is broadly a familiar one. Perhaps, if you drive it like a parsimonoius cabbie having a slow day.

    Four things must weigh less than six things, right? Indeed, but in fact the is a bit heavier than the old - by 25kg, to be precise. Perhaps the naysayers are right. Before we get in and drive it, just look at it for a moment. Yet the subtle changes to the , such as the domed front wings, natty lights front and rear and black under-spoiler section at the back, make it better resolved than the It remains compact, too, like s used to be in the air-cooled days.

    Next, open the door and slide yourself in to the seat. It's a timely reminder that along with s, s, Carrera GTs and s, Porsche already has a well-trodden four-cylinder legacy. Play around with the seat for a moment and yes: Okay, it sounds like a Beetle at idle. No, not McCartney in his prime singing Hey Jude. More like Ringo warming a rattly on a frosty morning. Snick first - the gearbox is deliciously precise, just as before. It had the chassis of the Cutty Sark powered by a calm southerly breeze.

    It gives you more to work with in the mid-range as well. Yet it will still rev its heart out to rpm. The middle pedal is solid, inspiringly so, slowing you down confidently while acting as a fulcrum to jab the throttle between downshifts so you feel like Senna in that fabled clip from qualifying at Monaco in Speed scrubbed, now turn in. The nose does what your hands, guided by your brain, are asking.

    This helm is so natural, with perfect weight build-up and accurate gearing. A little more sensation through the wheel from the road surface and extra weight drop-off as you pick up understeer would be welcome. The rest of the chassis is sublime, though. The way it settles mid-corner with sensational balance, or the slight rotation as you back off or feed on the power, is akin to alchemy in its execution.

    Meanwhile, the ride is as comfortable and well judged as it could be in a car built with performance at the forefront of the designer's mind. What are your options? A fine and capable car, but not a true sports car. Nice-sounding six-cylinder motor that, in comparison to the Cayman, feels like it's attached to the chassis of a Mk5 Cortina.

    The makes even the excellent BMW M2 feel like what it is: The Cayman, unquestionably, feels like a proper, undiluted sports car from the ground up. And this boggo-spec car with its extra grunt, I would argue, is a better car than the old 2. Still, I don't think you'd regret it, but I reckon you're looking at the thick end of fifty anyway.

No wonder people are cross. The gains are minuscule if any, so why did Porsche do it? And I miss the noise immensely. But the point is this car is the here and now, and is it the best new car you can buy for the money.

    The answer to that is: It's not living in the past to want an evocative experience from a car like this. As Matt Prior discussed on here recently, the real world fuel consumption of smaller turbocharged engines is terrible if you extend them. What we have here is journalists being forced to adopt a positive attitude to a negative change because being negative about new cars is career-limiting for them. I don't buy that. And yet this has to be a 4? Seems more like a cynical marketing move to me.
