When the new 718 GTS models were unveiled Wednesday, every Porsche fan’s jaw hit the floor.
Well, all of its fans except for two people: former IndyCar driver Dario Franchitti and MLB pitcher-turned-racer C.J. Wilson.
That’s because, although us common folk were laying eyes on the range-topping Cayman and Boxster for the first time, Franchitti and Wilson already had a chance to ogle the mid-engine Porsches. The two racing drivers, and car lovers, were invited to Sicily, Italy, to test both the coupe and convertible for Porsche’s launch video for the 718 GTS — and briefly argue about who has better flow.
Based on their reactions to the cars, it seems like Porsche hit a home run with the Cayman and Boxster GTS. Especially considering that Wilson is in his first season as a full-time Porsche GT3 Cup driver, yet the road-going 718 still made him light up like a kid in a candy store.
