It’s no secret, that we’re massive Porsche fans here at SXdrv - if a car has the Porsche crest on it somewhere, it will have our attention. We’re not as clued up on the various models as we’d like to be, but it really is hard to keep up with the long list of variations and models thanks to a plethora of special editions, anniversary editions and limited-number upgraded versions. The 911 is particularly hard to follow, there are currently 26 different versions listed on the main Porsche website, and that’s just for this year’s cars. Some models are quite close together in name and spec, like the GT3 and the GT3 RS. We’ve heard people comment that the GT3 is normally aspirated and the RS version is turbocharged, but that’s not the case. Both GT3 variants feature the normally aspirated 4.0-litre flat-six powerplant but are in slightly different states of tune. The turbocharged one that people are confused by is the GT2. Then there are the Cayman models, the latest and greatest being the Cayman GT4 and GT4 RS models. The Cayman is the smaller sibling to the 911 and has traditionally had engine setups that have a lot less of everything in comparison. That was until someone in the R&D department convinced someone to shoehorn the powerful 4.0-litre into the car. The result is an amazing car that even had some of the world’s most respected motoring press announcing that it was better than the 911. That takes some doing, but it raised the question of how the beefed-up Cayman would fare in a direct comparison, and the Carwow chaps have attempted to answer that for us.
Take a look at the YouTube video from the Carwow chaps that finally answers the questions motoring fanatics have about the iconic Porsche 911 GT3 and how it would fare up against the monster GT3 RS version - just how much of a difference does the RS badge make? The same question about the Cayman GT4 and GT4 RS is posed and answered in this normally-aspirated battle royale on a UK testing ground: Porsche 911 GT3 RS v GT4 RS v GT3 v GT4: DRAG RACE | carwow
