Review: 2010 Porsche PDK

The propaganda literature that the little batch of sleeping with a waiver absolving the of all liability#8212;promised that I would refreshed and ready to battle ninjas. Sure enough, I alert. But mentally, I wasn#8217;t all I was fully aware of my full and could access it at will, but was a disconcerting disconnect.

No, I didn#8217;t the Cayman PDK in this altered It#8217;s the same feeling by the German two-door. Yes, the Cayman is a full-on Porsche.

It precise handling, a jewel of an and magnificent brakes. Yet the  Doppelkupplungsgetriebe stood in the way of the Porker#8217;s man – machine interface. It created doubts that I#8217;ve experienced in a Porsche before.

Without a side-by-side comparison its predecessor or a full membership in the spotter#8217;s club, it#8217;s impossible to tell the refreshed form the previous gen. For small LED running lights from the latest Audi the front lower grills, and front end mimics the refreshed but exudes its own Cayman-esque character. The sports car#8217;s … app its pronounced rear fenders, a nod to the Porsche fastback look.

to shove my oversized sack of warfare gear through the rear portal, I discovered the hardtop Boxster#8217;s hatch the deck shelf of a 911. In the Cayman#8217;s rear holds a amount of stuff#8212;provided you have a appreciation for the importance of … fast-moving, G-producing vehicles. And you have the Cayman#8217;s front locker for all those clothes need to be kept warm by the

The rest of the Cayman#8217;s interior is a business-like place to do business, I wouldn#8217;t say it#8217;s the business. The 1/3 ICE buttons are now supplanted by a [larger] and voice activation, neither of should replace a volume But there you go.

PDK uses two wet-plate clutches, one for the gears, and one for the odd gears (which the even in the seven cog system). By between the two clutches during the power remains uninterrupted. To end, the system also (guesses?) the next gear on what it thinks you are going to do, on throttle position, steering and inputs from Madame

Porsche#8217;s PDK is PDQ, delivering shifts than Ye Olde F-1 automated single-clutch systems. At the time, power delivery is enough for autobox-like ambling in traffic.

So, finally, Porsche a version of what RF call#8217;s world#8217;s best gearbox#8221;: the DSG shift system found in VWs and Audi#8217;s. And it#8217;s not as good.

Before the car warmed up to #8220;za operating temp-er-a-choor,#8221; the PDK system a bit here and there. Five later, everything synced. commuting proved a breeze, a joy, as the PDK swapped clutches and seamlessly. I luxuriated in the Cayman#8217;s cell of calmness.

 Yet was amiss.

Perhaps those of you who in medical … could add color to this feeling. It as if there was a layer of frosted in between me and the magic of Porsche. As I out the autobahn to open up the crocodile coupe, I shrugged off this quietude.

Perhaps the car#8217;s animal would return with a shall we say, prompting.

Yet I will still pass on latest gee-whiz gizmo. The fog of war the PDK creates in autobahn missiles the sheer joy of piloting one of the best cars in existence. Should the PDK its way into the fast, fat, and sedans of other manufacturers, sure I will be five-starring it all the pages of TTAC.

Yet in a machine so and honed as the Cayman, it#8217;s new software or back to the old hardware. as a clear-headed, passionate pistonhead, me just fine.
