Let me begin with an apology: sorry. I know you’ve heard about how great the Cayman GT4 is a million times before, but if you can bear it, or have somehow missed all previous episodes, here is the million-and-first recount of its brilliance.

It’s born of the fact that I was feeling cheated; every time the GT4 had made an appearance at the office, I’d somehow missed the opportunity to have a go. So, while speaking to one of the nice chaps at Porsche, I got out the violin and played a sorrowful tune, something along the lines of: "I was robbed."

If anyone ever tells you that whinging and whining doesn’t work, they’re wrong, because last week a bright yellow GT4 pitched up in the car park. Not being a violent man, I pushed and elbowed everyone out of the way, grabbed the keys and shot off for the weekend, deciding to deal with the fallout, and HR, on Monday.

Saturday was cold and very wet, and the Michelin Pilot Cup Sport 2 tyres seemed well outside their operating window. All the GT4 wanted to do was understeer, and if I tried to correct that with a dab of throttle it turned into catastrophic understeer, or cataclysmic oversteer.
