Porsche Cayman S or a Nissan 370Z or a Toyota GT86?

Mrs P dreams about cars as much as the best petrolhead does. A Cayman S has long been her fantasy car but recently a bright yellow Nissan 370Z caught her eye and brought the Nissan to her attention, while she had clocked the Toyota GT86 / Subaru BRZ as far back as when we went to the 2012 Paris Motor show. A recent breakfast club meet at RAF Cosford saw all three of these cars on display, so the fantasy game of which one to choose was replayed. A trawl on the interweb found the video below which looked at all three cars and it made for an interesting watch. Would the old favourite the Porsche be usurped by the temptations of the Nissan 370Z or the new pretender on the block the Toyota GT86?

It sure makes this video worth a watch.

ClubBeast – Quick Pic


We went into Great Malvern on Monday night to do some shooting with our Fuji X-E1 for the sister site PhotoBeast, but of course we could not resist grabbing a quick shot of ClubBeast while we were there. He’s over five years old now and he’s been in a lot of scrapes over the years – new clutch, new gearbox, new turbo – but he also has a lot of European tours under his belt and we have had a lot of fun in him. You know you love a car when you walk away from it after parking, click the remote to lock it but you have to look back for a cheeky peak at him, bit like you turn your head when you walk past a pretty girl! ClubBeast is still that kind of a car! And before you say anything yes, I always look back when Lady Peanut walks past!
