VIDEO: See Porsche launch control in action!

cayman2IF you’ve always wondered what Porsche launch control is like – well, here’s your chance to find out!

Car Dealer attended the launch of the Cayenne Diesel this week where we also got the chance to try the Cayman S sportscar.

At Porsche’s exclusive test facility next to Hanger Straight at Silverstone, Porsche test driver Mark Burkinshaw demonstrated the car’s awesome prowess to Car Dealer.


In the first video below we get to try the launch control system on the new PDK seven-speed automatic gearbox on the Cayman – launching us to 60mph in 5.1 seconds.

Then, in the second, he takes the wheel to demonstrate the awesome handing on a skid pan – throwing the Cayman sideways and drifting around and around.

Both are quite incredible to watch. And after a day behind the wheel I absolutely fell in love with the ‘baby’ Porsche.

Hope it entertains you too. Enjoy…
