    What poise! Can't think of many factory cars (assuming no mods?) where you can wave thanks after passing someone at 230km/h+ by schwedenkreuz. Misha makes it look easy though. For the NA purists commenting below I have driven the 718 gts and didn't mind the turbo setup. Zero lag and all the lovely torque feel from 3-4k. But a bolshoi ballerina of a car so turbo or not doesn't really matter.

    There’s absolutely no need to downshift so early and also rev the engine so much in between corners, for example your downshifting to 2nd revving the hell out of the motor when you can quite easily leave it in 3rd and use the torque on the exit. It’s turbo you don’t need to rev the hell out of the engine, it doesn’t pay whatsoever... your unnecessarily putting stress on the mechanicals of the vehicle especially when your nowhere near the limit sorry 🤦🏽‍♂️ you may as well up shift at 6,000 rpm at that kind of pace...

    Misha you make the 718 GTS look very capable which I'm sure it is, although I assume it has MR set up? Porsche seems to also have got the PDK gearing perfect as well, unlike the 4.0. I think this car is going to be in demand for track enthusiasts in the future as an affordable package. Sound is fine.

    Misha maybe with the GoPro Swivel Camera Clip you can get better footage with your helmet. it must go in the front part of the helmet were the mouth would touch. have seen it within the dirt bikes people and it looks more natural. head footage is to tall and chest mount is to low. it is my suggestion, keep it up love the content from Puerto Rico.

    I heard a 718 in person once. It DID sound like a Subaru. A lot different than in this video though. So either the GTS sounds a lot different, it's fake interior sound or Mishas microphone makes it sound differently. And since Porsche 4 cylinder vehicles have tradition too, I'm totally fine with it. Could be worse: an inline 4. Porsche that sounds like a GTI.

    Wonder if it's fake interior noise. When i first heard a 718 in person it surely sounded like a Subaru to me. Which isn't a bad thing imo. I like the sound of Subarus. And 4 cylinder Porsches have tradition too. See 914, 924, 944 and so on. Could be a lot worse. Could be an inline4, so it would just sound like your regular GTI.

    Thanks for the video. I recently acquired a Cayman S (718) and a lap on the Nordschleife is on the to do list, since it's just about 130 km one way to get there. And I do love the sound of the 2.5 l engine. The sound engineers did a marvelous job imo. Especially the short angry uprev when starting the engine is something that gets a smile on your face everytime you flip the switch.
