There appeared to be some very good driving factored in there as well. I would have enjoyed seeing them swap drivers and doing that same timed course again.

It was nice to see the box and cayman win though!!!!!!!!!

It was a fun video to watch. That's the thing with Best Motoring though, it just for fun and doesn't prove much. There are so many variables that are taking place during a race besides the cars. The #1 variable being the driver and the car a distant 2nd. Perhaps the Cayman driver was just a more skilled driver than the others, but nobody can deny that the Boxster and Cayman have earned respect among true enthusiasts and are very capable cars.

Thanks for posting. I was most interested in the 987 vs 911 results

Thanks for watching and commenting guys, I think the drivers probably did have a major influence on the final result, but I think it also shows the Cayman and Boxster did seem give the drivers an extra sense of confidence when on the edge.

Here's a Car and Driver test that is a little more scientific and offers comparison between a lot of cars including a Cayman S and a Carrera S. They both turned identical lap times at VIR. Not good news for Carrera owners especially of the base model.
