German automaker Porsche has legions of fans worldwide, and thanks to the massive range of cars they produce, there’s a Porsche product for pretty much everyone. Sadly, not for everyone’s budget. The most iconic model in the Porsche lineup is the 911, the timeless sportscar that’s evolved over the years to become an absolute weapon. There are so many 911 models available that it’s even hard for Porsche aficionados to tell the difference between them. Back in 2018, Porsche even made a video that showed the differences between the models because at that time there were 24 Porsche 911 models to choose from, and there are now 26. These range from the cheapest in the range, the 911 Carrera, which isn’t really that cheap with a list price of R2,158,000 - and that’s in base spec without adding in the massive range of optional extras. The current top of the list is the 911 S/T, which is admittedly a limited edition version, but it will set you back a cool R 6,226,000 and it’s not even the fastest in the lineup. While the 911 is Porsche, there are other offerings that tick all the boxes for those wanting to go fast and look good while doing it - the 718 Cayman GT4 RS is the big daddy version. When the Cayman was released, it gained the online reputation of being the poor man’s 911, and those very first models back in 2006 wore the Porche badge but they didn’t offer up the usual Porsche power and performance, with just 206 kW on tap from a normally aspirated 3.2-litre lump. That’s not the case today - the range-topping Cayman is a beast, and the car’s reputation has changed so much that many Porsche fans now rate it higher than the timeless 911.
Take a look at the YouTube video from Porsche that shows off what makes the 718 Cayman GT4 RS so special, besides that mad high price tag of course. This is one very cool car that can do everything the Big Brother 911 can do, and possibly even better, depending on who you ask.
