With cars like the Porsche 911 GT3, 911 Turbo S and the Carrera GT, fans of the Cayman have felt rather neglected without a performance-based variant of the Cayman in Porche’s lineup. All of that changed with the release of the Porsche Cayman GT4. To make the GT4 what it is, Porsche used components from the 911 GT3 to make what is arguably the best Cayman to date.

In a recent video review, XCAR compared the new GT4 to the 911 GT3, and it appears they were quite happy with the GT4. Things like sport mode and the ability to dampen the noise created by the engine all make the GT4 worthy of track- and on-road performance. The GT4 uses a 3.8-liter powerplant like the 911 GT3, but it only produces 385 horsepower compared to the 911’s 475 horsepower. The GT4 hits 60 mph in just 4.2 seconds – almost a second slower than the GT3. On paper, it undoubtedly looks like the 911 is a clear winner between the two, but it’s the little things the new GT4 offers that give it an edge. Check out the video to see the full review – you’ll be happy you did.
