Since the birth of the Porsche Cayman GT4 many questioned whether it could stand up to his ‘older brother’, the Porsche 911. The Cayman conventional is presented as an alternative smaller, less powerful and considerably cheaper than the 911. However the arrival of the sporty GT4 has put in doubt the superiority of the flagship opposite the small marina.
But do and compare it with the more radical of the 911? In AutoExpress have thought that it was unreasonable to confront the Porsche 911 GT3 RS against the Porsche Cayman GT4 in their natural habitat: the circuit. Both vehicles follow the same concept, standing a cut above that their respective series models in terms of power, sportiness and performance.
A priori the clear winner would have to be the Porsche 911 GT3 RS. A car radical, with a aerodynamics very elaborate (where it emphasizes its large rear wing) and ready to fulminate times on the track. The reference of the German mark with a six-cylinder boxer 4.0 liters and no less than 500 horsepower for a weight of only 1.420 kg is Also a car at the height of a few pockets, 208.500 euros you’ll have to shell out if you want to get with him.
on the other hand we have the Porsche Cayman GT4, one of the sports of the year. It is characterized by a concept radical and efficient, with many components brought in from the 911. It also carries a naturally aspirated engine of six cylinders, although in this case 3.8 litres and with a power of 385 horses. Little but bully. In addition is linked to a manual change of six speeds, and its price is 99.094 euros in Spain.
But the fact that the Porsche Cayman GT4 costs half the Porsche 911 GT3 RS, it does not mean that the latter is twice as good. As you can see in the video, in the showdown at the circuit of Silverstone, the distances are reduced, and both models are separated only by a time of 3.2 seconds. Sensations wins the GT3 RS, it might also influence their performance, 0-100 km/h in 3,3 seconds and maximum speed of 322 km/h, compared to the 0-100 km/h in 4.4 seconds and maximum of 295 km/h for the Cayman.
