Porsche Cayman GT4
The Boxster/718/Cayman models are one of the best driving cars since the day Porsche introduced them. But the GT4 is something else. For years, there has been a rumor among carf enthusiasts that Porsche deliberately refused to install a 911 flat six engine into the Boxster/Cayman. Word was Porsche was afraid a smaller car would be better than the bigger, legendary and more expensive 911.
Finally, in 2014, Porsche presented the Cayman GT4. It was an all-out factory-prepared sports car with a 385 HP engine straight from the 911 and chassis improvements from the 911 GT3. The Cayman GT4 was practically the best of the Porsche 911 compilation. However, they installed it in a smaller package.
Although the GT4 was a blast to drive and capable of beating some versions of the 911, Porsche was not intimidated. Simply, the 911 is still the king of the lineup despite the Cayman GT4 being a better driving machine. They limited the production of the GT4 to only 1,000 cars as the predicted volume for the North American market.
Unsurprisingly, they sold out in advance. So, hurry up if you want your piece of Porsche excellence. But be prepared to shift your own gears, since the GT4 comes as manual only, as any proper performance car should.
