What better way to get a feel for the 718 Cayman S than by thrashing it at Leipzig under the tutelage of a Porsche instructor? Travel and fashion blogger Steve Booker is one fortunate soul who, in attending the Porsche Track Experience, gets to learn the Cayman S with the assistance of a sodden skidpad, some of the world’s best corners, and a talented coach.
It’s not often that novices get to push their cars to the limit on a typical track day, but the Porsche Track Experience is designed to have customers familiar with the complete character of their Porsche; to make them comfortable at the edge of adhesion. As Booker puts it, rather poetically, “By the end of it—it sounds silly—but you’re, like, dancing with it.”
Learning lines, breakaway characteristics, braking distances, and weight transfer are all in a day’s work there. For those considering a performance-oriented Porsche, want to improve their own skills, or are just interested seeing in the potential of one of these cars demonstrated by a trained professional, the Porsche Track Experience is an exhilarating way to spend a weekend.
