Do you want to turn some heads? And I mean really turn heads? Not just, “oh there’s a cool car” and then move on, but the stop and stare sort of attention. Yes? Good, keep reading. Here we have a paint-to-sample Riviera Blue 2016 Porsche Cayman GT4. Porsche has long been known for its pastels and Riviera Blue follows in that tradition. It’s not the only bright vibrant blue Porsche has offered, but it has quickly become one of the most iconic. First debuted on the 993 I’ve always thought that was the model it looked best on. Later 911s wearing the color have looked good, but never as good as the 993. This Cayman GT4 might just top it. I’ve loved the GT4 since I first saw one and this one is just stunning! Like it or not – and I can’t imagine someone buying Riviera Blue and hating attention – everyone is going to take notice.
At $125K, the price of all of this wonderfulness is very high. You can easily find a GT4 for $15K, even $20K, less than this one. It is practically new and looks flawless so you’re getting the right sort of car for your money. It’s just a lot of money.
We’ve seen some cool 2002s around GCFSB, but most have at least some level of modification or updating. Today’s 2002tii comes in the amazing Riviera Blue, a subtle hue that suits the vintage lines perfectly and is a new personal favorite. Having been with just two owners and covering less than 70k miles in its four decades years, it has been very well cared for and shows a few spots of patina but overall is in incredible shape. The all-original look, especially with this color and wheel combo, makes it hard to imagine a modified ’02 looking any better.
Back in April, Nate wrote up an attractive E30 M3 S38 swap that was asking all the money for what was a non-original car. But we liked it, mostly because it was a well executed build and it took what would have been a tired S14 E30 and breathed new life into it. So what else does that great S38B36 look at home in? One of the complaints about the E36 in North America was that the M3 didn’t get a full-blown M motor as its predecessors and stablemates, but the builder of today’s track attack 1998 M3 has resolved that. Backdating the motor, this E36 is a rolling M appreciation billboard that will remind you what an incredible track car the E36 makes:
They say God is in the details, and if that is the truth than this car must certainly be holy. For 993 fans, it may just be the Holy Grail – a car that was never offered in great quantity or in the United States at all. Similar to yesterday’s 993 Carerra RSR, the Supercup version of the car had a roadgoing derivative as well – the Carrera RS and RS Clubsport. While the RS took the normal “add lightness” route, the RS Clubsport was an out-of-the-box race car, replete with roll cage and all amenities removed. Not content that these cars should remain out of U.S. hands, several copies of the RS and RS Clubsport cars have been made, but perhaps none as exacting as today’s Riviera Blue 1995:

1995 Porsche 911 993 Carrera RS Clubsport “Tribute”
The 993 Carrera RS Clubsport is the ultimate of all naturally aspirated air cooled 911′s. There are even fewer Clubsports built by Porsche than the RS it is based off of.
The Porsche 911 Carrera RS Clubsport is a lightweight variant of the Porsche 993 Carrera, and a lighter version of the RS. This RS version in particular is a track-oriented Carrera RS Clubsport with only limited road usability. It features a naturally aspirated 3.8 liter engine with 300 hp. On the outside, it is easily distinguishable by a special non-retractable rear wing, small front splitter and 3-piece 18” aluminum wheels. The headlight washers were also deleted for additional weight savings. On the inside of an original Clubsport, the rear seats were removed, carpet removed, all power functions including radio, power locks, have been removed and two racing seats and flat door panels were installed.
