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.
Just because you can, doesn’t mean you should. That is something to keep in mind when specifying new cars. The manufacturer might give you basically unlimited customization in every color, but that doesn’t mean you should use them. Unfortunately for this 718 GT4, that seems to be the case here. Buckle up!
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?
