Tattoo Shop Reviews All-new Porsche 718 Cayman GT4 Review – The perfect driver’s car?
Ashley Oldfield is an extraordinary driver. He spent years racing fast things around racetracks around the world, and winning. We’re very fortunate to have him on the Cars.co.za team.
After a day in this new GT4, he came back to the office, dropped off the keys and announced that he’s getting a tattoo of this new Porsche. And that’s pretty much everything you need to know about this new Cayman.
With a naturally aspirated 4-litre flat-6, mounted midships, with power running through a 6-speed manual (Porsche’s double clutch PDK is also available) to the rear wheels, the recipe for a proper driver’s car, on paper at least, is pretty much perfect.
In reality, the recipe is sublime.
One of the most difficult things about reporting on this particular Porsche is what do you compare it to? The BMW M2 CS costs similar money and offers similar performance and power, but it’s a very different car, with it’s engine up front and much higher centre of gravity.
No, the Cayman GT4 is in a class of one. In this video, our video guy Ciro De Siena takes our very yellow test unit out for blast and returns feeling similar to Ashley, except he doesn’t like tattoos.
