Gordon’s Blog – My Porsche Experience

17th March 2017 / in Contractor Mortgages & Protection Blog / by Gordon Hunter, MD

Being a car enthusiast I was more than happy (or make that desperate) to have a trial of the latest Porsche Cayman S. This model came with everything including the Ceramic Brakes, Sports Exhaust, PDK and so on…… The invite said ‘Fife Airport’. This would be a no holds barred free-for-all round the airstrip.

The model in question came with Launch Control which was just fantastic. I felt like a Tornado Jet Pilot sitting in a stealth like machine at the end of the runway raring to go. When the air traffic controller signalled the strip was free of small aircraft I revved up and off we went. The job of my ‘co-pilot’ (an experienced race driver) was to let me blast from 0-120 then tell me when he wanted me to hit the brakes as hard as I could. He obviously had nerves of steel as I started to twitch as we neared 120 mph, had only 50 yards of tarmac left, and yet still hadn’t told me to slam on the brakes.

Hitting the brakes as hard as I could was not a problem, especially given the fact there only appeared to be a small patch of grass, and then a brick wall, at the end of the runway!

I then got to spin the car around a bit of a chicane, and the best bit of it was feeling like a 5 year old again grinning from ear to ear when I was allowed to splash through the big puddle at the corner of the airfield !! Some of us never grow up.

All in, a fantastic day and an incredible piece of machinery. Thank you Porsche Glasgow.
