Is it all too much of a good thing for the road? Probably, it hankers for a track outing this, and perhaps the 4.0 GTS model is more suited to the road. Hmm, a hell of a dilemma for the fortunate few.
The folk at Porsche are an obsessive bunch, always pursuing the improvement of perfection. While it sells more trucks these days, it can be easy to forget Porsche still makes some of the best sports cars around. Like the 718 Cayman, which is pretty good in any of its guises but the GT4 remains special.
With the previous iteration, Porsche finally allowed the Cayman to take a chunk out of the 911, giving the GT4 genuine poke and a dose of aero to make it stick. And in the new generation, Porsche has honed the GT4 package to an even finer point. These GT cars are fashioned as road-going racers, and with the track in mind, Porsche says this new GT4 is 12 seconds faster around the Nordschleife at the Nurburgring than the old car, with a time of 7:28 minutes. That’s also faster than the old Carrera GT BTW.
