2023 Porsche 718 Cayman GT4 RS

Well, they are here. One of the hottest and most anticipated Porsche models in a while. The 718 Cayman GT4 RS. For everything the GT4 is, the GT4 RS is at another level. You know the drill. The naturally aspirated 4.0-liter flat-six makes a peak 493 horsepower and 331 pound-feet of torque, good enough to pull down 0-60 runs in 2.8 seconds. Those are hypercar numbers in a Cayman. All at a starting price of $150,000. Of course, that is if you can get one, which of course you can’t unless you’ve been leasing loaded-up Cayennes every 3 years from your local dealer since they came out back in 2004 as well as buying everything else that has been offered to you without fuss. Then maybe you can get on the list. If that isn’t you, then here you go. All you need to do is send the money…a lot of money.

2012 Porsche Cayman R

I feel like I get déjà vu more often than not looking as so many cars, but usually write it off as a seeing similar cars and not seeing the actual same car that I thought I saw. You know what I mean. However, some cars as so unique that is it worth taking a few seconds to look back to make sure you actually aren’t crazy. Come to find out, I wasn’t crazy.

This 2012 Porsche Cayman R was featured by Carter exactly one year ago today and guess what? It is still for sale at the same dealership with the same mileage and exact same photos. Stale bread anyone?

2016 Porsche Cayman S

I’m not exactly going out on any limbs and predicting something that others aren’t seeing, but the 981 Porsche Cayman is aging very well. It’s a great size, the tech is more than adequate, but the real star of the show is the MA1 flat-6. It is a wonderfully balanced engine that sounds great, kicks out 325 horsepower and 273 lb-ft of torque, and won’t kill you in service costs. However, I think one of the biggest reasons the 981 is holding strong, is that it isn’t a 718. Hear me out here.

Unless you spring for the GTS 4.0 or GT4, the 718 chassis gets a lot of kickback because of the MA2 turbocharged flat-4. Don’t get me wrong, I want to love the 718. I think it looks great, the interior is extremely nice for the price point, but I just can’t love, or even like, the MA2 engine. Every time I hear one start up, I am having flashbacks to 2005 Subaru WRXs. I am not alone here. Because of this, I’d much rather buy the older car for the engine alone. Today’s car, a 2016 Cayman S, looks to be one of the finer examples I’ve come across of the 981 chassis in the past few years. Why? Well, it has 955 miles on it. That’s it. 955.

2016 Porsche Cayman GT4

The 918 Porsche Cayman GT4 was one of those cars that was a somewhat realistic purchase I thought I could swing once they started aging and future generations would drive the prices down on. Or so that is what I thought. For a good while there, it seemed to be trending that way. From 2017 to mid-2020, lightly used examples were between $80,000 and $90,000, and with talk of the 718 GT4 coming soon, we thought prices would keep creeping down. Well, that didn’t happen because of the perfect storm that happen post-2020 and now we are still hovering around sticker price for cars with over 10,000 miles and some of the really nice examples are well over $100,000. Maybe in another six years?
