I really like the looks of the Cayman!

2 Pedal. It has the PDK dual clutch transmission.
I was looking to get a Manual Transmission but the remaining new 2016 Cayman GTS models all had PDK at the dealerships I searched.
I am glad I ended up with a PDK. The PDK is more of a manual than an automatic transmission. It upshifts and downshifts very nicely when in Sport Plus Mode. I sometimes miss the manual but overall I am happy with the PDK. It is nice not having to think about shifting during an Auto-X and I can concentrate on other aspects.

Very nice Cayman and it was great to see it being used properly on the course. How did you do?

1st in Class at the two PCA Auto-Xs.
5th out of 35 in Open Class at Corvette Club Auto-X. All non-Corvettes run in one big class. The cars that beat me had racing tires.

You don't have to justify it to me. I drove both on track. I liked the PDK better.

Also, it's not an automatic. It's a dual clutch sequential gearbox. It doesn't have planetary gears, torque converter, or a valve body.
