TheSmokingTire – The Porsche 718 Cayman T combines the best chassis, cosmetic, and interior bits from the high-up ‘GTS’ model, with the base 2.0L Turbo engine making 300 horsepower. It’s one of the lightest cars Porsche makes, bar none, but also one of the least powerful. All of this would be great, except that it’s also rather expensive – just over $77,000 as tested. While the 991.2 Carrera T was our favorite ‘non-GT’ 911 of the last generation, does the Cayman T live in that same realm? Or is it just too expensive for not enough performance?
I wanted to share some exercise stats with you. As you can see from the Apple Fitness app that for the past year I’ve pretty consistently worked out for 41 or 42 minutes a day on average. I’ve closed the Exercise rings on the Watch 68% of the time in the last year, and done way better than that for the last 3 months at 84%. So things are definitely heading in the right direction.
Again I’m kinda reminded just how mind blowing this type of health tracking is. When I bought the Apple Watch last year, I thought I would mostly use it for Notifications and Weather updates and Siri dictation…but really it’s the constant monitoring of your health that is the big selling point of the device. It feels incredibly futuristic and sci-fi! 😂
TheSmokingTire – We know the C8 Corvette has what it takes to be great: a torquey, powerful engine mounted low and in the middle, quick, accurate steering, a brilliant ride, lots of features, and the performance of a $150,000 Porsche 911 for around half that. Plus, even in the regular “coupe” the targa roof is, (and for the last 50 years or so has been) removable; a true “best of both worlds” scenario. For that reason, enthusiasts, and even Corvette owners as I formerly was, look down on the Convertibles. Historically, the soft top not only changes the fabulous coupe lines, but also prevents you from attending some track days – cementing the “old guy having a crisis” image. Now, taking a page *directly* from the Ferrari 458 Playbook, the Corvette Convertible features a well-insulated power-retractable hardtop that looks great raised, looks even better lowered, and – get this – doesn’t intrude on the rear trunk space in any way. Remember 2021 – it was the year the Corvette Convertible finally got cool.

I got out on my bike a couple times this week because the weather was nice. However, despite consistently “closing my rings” and getting workouts in 6 out of 7 days a week (see below a screenshot of my Monday through Sunday fitness trends) and trying to watch what I eat, I’m kinda stuck. My weight goes back and forth 3~4 lbs. I don’t know if I’m working out too much and building muscle or perhaps still eating too much. I know my age and metabolism is definitely to blame as well as its just more difficult to lose weight when you are older. A few weeks ago I fasted and that’s when I seemed to lose the most…so I may try that again.
