The wheel is thin, and sits in the fleshy part of your finger pads, held rather than gripped, guided rather than wrestled. The gearbox slips between ratios without the shift-pause-shift cadence of an old car. The clutch is light. The suspension contains no slop, and there's always this insistent absence of the geriatric. Here is a middle-aged Porsche that drives better than a modern car - a paradox held casually; a big swipe of colourful cognitive dissonance that feels intangibly, perfectly right.
