@ cobnapint

Apart from being labelled a dweller of the Middle ages by Cobnapint, just because I happen to mention a language issue, (wow - its not like I disagreed about anything else), I have to say that this is one of the best Autocar videos of late, shame not to have an Aston there, but I cannot help feeling it would have been very low in the pecking order. Surprised at the Mac not making the cut, it is supposed to be a lot better than the MP4 12C.

As I said before, gutted about the Alfa, it looks so good as well.

Cayman GTS gear ratios

Richard Bremner makes a point about the Cayman that the gearing seems too tall. In my 981 Boxster with the 7-speed PDK gearbox, although the final drive is tall (to allow an 'overdrive' cruising 7th, which is very much an extra ratio) gears 1-6 are closer stacked and feel well chosen. Could it be then that, assuming the test car had a manual 'box, the choice of final drive ratio (the same for both manual and PDK?) has been chosen to suit the PDK's 7 ratios.

OH my!!!!

Good video,plenty of unbiased opinion,not an unexpected result though,i'd have liked to have heard why the super car of the moment(the 650S) was so crap compared to the top three?.
