2020 Porsche 718 Cayman GT4 Meets 991 GT2 RS, 997 GT3 RS For A Tire-Slaying Fest

The arrival of the new 718 Cayman GT4 sounds like a great opportunity for a family reunion, with Autocar bringing in the all-mighty 991 GT2 RS and the iconic 997 GT3 RS.

Porsche has long been considered the go-to specialist in track-focused machines, as it has consistently been churning such machines for decades and decades.

The latest product is the 718 Cayman GT4, which returns with a brand new, naturally aspirated engine and a manual transmission as the entry-level model of Porsche’s GT lineup.

Sitting at the middle is a new 4.0-liter flat-six, which will form the basis for more naturally aspirated models in the future. In this form, it produces 414 HP (420 PS) and 310 lb-ft (420 Nm) of torque, enough to send the 718 Cayman GT4 from 0 to 62 mph (100 km/h) in 4.4 seconds and onto a top speed of 188 mph (302 km/h).

The new baby of Porsche’s GT department also benefits from a more efficient aero kit and some modest suspension revisions, including a new subframe, dampers, control arms and ball joints. Porsche claims that the GT4 is now over 10 seconds faster than its predecessor on the Nordschleife, which is quite impressive.

Of course the 991 GT2 RS is the top dog here, offering 690 HP (700 PS) out of its twin-turbo 3.8-liter engine. The last hurrah of the previous-gen 911 is already considered an icon in the performance car world, and for good reason.

Then there’s the 997 GT3 RS, here in its facelifted form with the larger 3.8-liter motor. This is considered by many as the pinnacle of the GT3 RS, as it was one of the last models fitted with a hydraulic steering rack and the Mezger engine, which in this case produces 444 HP (450 PS), and a manual transmission.
