Porsche’s 718 Cayman GTS Is A Great Sports Car To Find Driving Heaven With

When it comes to roads that enthusiasts need to drive, a few come to mind. The Transfagarasan Highway in Romania is one of them. The old Top Gear trio did a lengthy trip to the stretch of road and found it to be downright incredible.

The Stelvio Pass in Italy is also another place that’s renowned for its tight turns and amazing scenery. The road is so iconic, that Alfa Romeo decided to name its first-ever SUV after it. The Route Napoleon, which starts from the French Riviera and goes northwest in the foothills of the Alps is also quite famous among car boffins.

One country that you don’t really hear a lot about, though, is Spain. Carfection’s Henry Catchpole however took a trip to Port de la Bonaigua to find a road tucked away in the Pyrenees mountains near the French-Spanish border. He claims it reminds him of the Transfagarasan Highway, only with smoother tarmac and less traffic.

The road looks amazing and the fact that’s its nestled in between some epic mountains makes it even more impressive. It follows, then, that he’d take a true sports car to tackle it, and the Porsche 718 Cayman GTS is supposed to fit that description perfectly.

Catchpole really likes the GTS, but there’s one thing he’s not a fan of: the engine – or, rather, its sound. The power output is good, the chassis is excellent and the manual gearbox is a joy to use, but the exhaust note just isn’t there.

Still, it looks like he’s having one heck of a time, so you might want to mark Port de la Bonaigua on Google Maps. As for the Porsche, it sure made for an entertaining drive – but we’ll let you watch the video and find out more for yourselves.
