This video review may be in German, but the sound of the engine tells you all you need to know. Oh dear oh dear.

I just spend the week driving round the Barossa Valley and other South Australian wine regions with the Porsche club of Victoria. There is nothing better than being in a fast moving convoy of NA flat 6s including GT3s, Boxster GTS, Cayman GTS, 911s of various types, even the odd old 911 turbo. What a noise, including from my fantastic 2.7 986 which was a total hoot and had no trouble keeping up with the rest especially on the twisties.

The 718 needs to go back to the drawing board IMHO.
