The all new Porsche Cayman GT4 RS is likely one the most incredible cars to come out of Porsche. Yes it is not the 911 that they have become so dearly loved for, but this car has a whole lot to give. Think of this car as a sentimental love letter that so many enthusiasts have loved about cars, and even motorbikes. Read as we look at why the Porsche Cayman GT4 RS is a drive down nostalgia lane.

Let’s Talk Details

The scream of an Aprilia 125 1990 flying past you is a familiar sound to enthusiasts of the old two stroke engines. When the GT4 RS hits that 9000 rpm mark you get a taste of that old sound. You immediately get taken back to the late 80s/early 90s. Reminiscent of that freedom you feel only when you are young and have the whole world ahead of you.

Porsche has taken the 718 Cayman, the mid-engined little brother of the 911 GT3, and transformed it into the best that it can be. The 718 stage has needed a little excitement and this is truly a great way to tip your hat to a great drive. The car has a naturally aspirated 4.0-liter flat-six engine that ignites that passion once felt in cars like the McLaren F1 or the Ferrari F40. The Cayman GT4 RS hits 0-60 in 3.4 seconds, and reaches a top speed of 195 mph.

Other Shining Qualities

The GT4 RS is made for the driver. It is not the fastest car or one with the highest top end, but it is smooth, reactive, and fun. The car takes you back to that first time you drove something that took your breath away. Revitalizing the youth within while being a symbol of what made cars so great.

Most fast cars have a unique sound that is produced through the exhaust. Which essentially just allows the public the opportunity to take in the roars of the engine a little better than you can from the cabin. With the GT4 RS the sound ball is in your court. The sound you hear is the induction noise from the carbon-fiber intakes where you would normally find the rear quarter windows. The steering is sensational and leaves little to be desired. The car has much better response when it is kept warm and ready which certainly shows its purpose of being a track-ready car.

This car offers enthusiasts something that can give you endless fun on the track and a car you can comfortably drive 1000s of miles on a road trip. The only downside is that you cannot get a manual version of the GT4 RS as this is not part of the RS model. The car comes with a seven-speed PDK transmission and honestly you will likely be happy about that since the car is so lively on the road.

In Conclusion

The Porsche Cayman GT4 RS is a spectacular car. Many car journalists had some doubts when the car was announced. The majority of cars made to be good on the road and on the track tend to lack a little in each area. Most, if not all, journalists now have felt and seen the pure joy that the GT4 RS expresses.

It brings together all the elements of iconic cars and moments in motoring history. The car is now a symbol of those amazing combustion engines that will soon be a thing of the past. One of the last greats to roam our roads. All this and achieving the perfect equilibrium between track car and road car. What is not to love about the Cayman GT4 RS?
