Watch the Porsche Cayman GT4 Eat Up the Nurburgring
Porsche fanatics have been going back and forth for years over which of its products makes the best sports car: 911 or Cayman. Despite years of frankly necessary performance bracketing between the two, Porsche has unleashed a new high-performance Cayman – the GT4 – and it's a belter. It knicks the 3.8-liter flat-six engine from the 911 Carrera S, a significant amount of chassis components from the very hardcore 911 GT3, and can claim a heady 7 minute 40 second lap time around the Nurburgring's North Loop. Porsche took a camera crew to the 'Ring to highlight its new prizefighter – take a look. RELATED: The rendered Porsche 901 Concept looks good from any angle
Somewhere, there's a young 911 fan tearing down his bedroom wall poster and replacing it with one of these. It's numbers are quite staggering. The Cayman GT4 packs 385 horsepower, sprints to 60 mph in just 4.2 seconds, and its Nurburgring lap time matches that of the 2011 911 GT3.
But its most important figure might just be its price. The Cayman GT4 starts at $84,600, which is by no means cheap, but around $14,000 less than the engine-sharing 911 Carrera S and a whopping $46,000 less than the chassis-donating 911 GT3. If your main objective is to go to work quickly on the weekdays and get 'round a track even faster on the weekends, is there a better bargain than this?
