Think Mini is the king of Go-Kart Handling™? Well, you might be mistaken, as Porsche proves here it's fully capable of delivering a driving experience that'd fit in quite nicely on a go-kart track.

Using a new and very red Cayman GTS, the Stuttgart-based manufacturer invades a kart track in northern Italy and sets the mid-engined sports car loose to slip, slide and zip its way around the circuit. As far as videos for Sunday evening go, this one ticks all the boxes.

Take a look.

      Not only that, there were a huge number of cuts leading me to believe the car actually didn't make it around some of those turns in one take. Given, the turns on a kart track are much tigher than a handling course for a car would be, but still, it smells like a bit of fakery to me. As the other comment said, would be interesting to see a kart running the course with the Cayman, all in one continuous shot.

      Honestly, it just looks really slow going around there. I love me some Cayman but this was not an excellent ad.

      i see a trend here in comments section, lets not forget this is not to show its better than a go-kart, but to show how good it can handle tight bends, so lets not go overboard and make ridiculous statements or assumptions, this is just to show that cayman is one of the best handling cars around, which many car enthusiasts/experts agree.

      Sounds like the Mini is still champ. My wife and I separately said our Mini was a cute little rat. That's been its name ever since: the rat.

      Best thing was the tag-line at the end. That was good. Everything else was lame.

      I would have enjoyed it more if the Porsche was chasing a go-kart. It would lose.
