    Cayman GT4



    Engine from the Carrera S
    Front suspension from the GT3
    New rear suspension
    Brakes from the GT3
    Working aero
    Mechanical LSD
    6 speed manual only

    About 5 years ago at the end of a top gear series Clarkson did a atmospheric piece on the V12 Vantage and his fear that it was the last of its kind. At which point the automotive world started a 5 year horsepower war. Well, in that regard he was about as wrong as you could be but the feeling he had is how I feel about drivers cars now. Everything is going turbo and hybrid due to emissions. Everything is going automatic to shave a tenth in the spec sheet. To me this car looks to be one of the last real drivers cars that packs a serious punch. It also happens to be fucking awesome.

    So, a (relatively) affordable old school analog sports car that can drive to work and the track, that matches a 997.2 GT3 for pace and sounds absolutely tits. I've been so well behaved with cars for the last 10 years but I think this is the one that cracks it.

    Do it, and terrorise bankers who think that the 911 is "the only REAL Porsche".

    I love it, but it's just about $20k more than I'm willing to spend on a car at this point.

    Awesome, but $85k US is a lot of money. As a wild guess I wouldn't expect these to depreciate a lot if they are as limited and as good as I would expect them to be.

    I looked up the Ruf 3800S since it is basically the same concept, assuming it might be cheaper in price. Turns out its double the price of a Cayman GT4.

    The thing about the GT4 is its only about 7% more than the GTS and you're getting much more car. Still expensive but quite cheap in comparison to its competitors.
