Porsche 718 Cayman GT4 RS review

Published: 22 Mar 2022


What should I be paying?

Bizarre as it sounds, paying less than £110k for a car with an engine this special, a chassis this talented and a sense of mischief as vivid as this is actually great value. With nearly 500bhp it’s a mid-engined supercar in all but name, but half the price of admittedly-more-powerful Italian rivals. As with all Porsches though, getting too enthusiastic with the options list can be costly.

Our recommendation would be as follows: go for the £9k Weissach pack, the carbon bits look great and save a bit of weight, the titanium exhaust pipes are gorgeous and the investment will pay off if and when you come to sell. Ceramic brakes at £6k are worthwhile too if you ever plan to take the car on track, and for an extra £2k a titanium roll cage over a steel one is tempting. The 20-inch forged magnesium wheels, which save a chunky 10kg of unsprung mass, will make a tangible difference, but at £10.5k we’d stick with the standard rims. Oh, and the Pilot Sport Cup 2 tyres are brilliant all-rounders, there’s really no need for the Cup 2 Rs unless you’re chasing lap records at your local track day.
