Porsche

So I drove a Porsche cayman s today and it kind of let me down in the power department....granted I knew nothing about it.
It's a quick little car but I think I am spoiled to the trough you in the seat torque from our v8s!! Awesome car for what it's intended but not for me
Any of y'all have similar drives and let downs?

The Cayman is more about the handling and the balance of it. They didn't want to put too much power in it because it would eat into the 911 sales.
The one car that really disappointed me was the Nissan Altima coupe, it was absolutely terrible, it had no torque, was uncomfortable, and has little feel in the brakes and steering. The only thing it had over my car were usable cup holders. I do have high standards when it comes to cars though.

I got to drive a '12 STI and was quite disappointed, but that's cause I'm used to all of my buddies cars (350whp Evo 8 and 340whp 06 STI) it seems to handle good but it felt extremely big for the type of car it is.

That's where I figured they shine is in the top end side! But to me if you don't road course it it seems like a waste of cash...unless your rich then who cares right! Hahaha
