Best Porsche Ever? – Cayman GT4 RS, GT3, or GT3RS

When Porsche creates a GT version of one of their vehicles, you know something special is on the way. But how good are the two best Porsche GT models on the market right now? And how do they compare? Everyday Driver attempts to answer this question in their latest video, which pits the 911 GT3 against the 718 Cayman GT4 RS.

It’s worth noting that the all-new 911 GT3 RS had not yet been released at the time of filming, so the top-of-the-line 911 in this video is the 992 GT3.  That being said, they did manage to source a GT3 RS from the previous 991 generation as a benchmark to see just how far this latest generation of cars has come.

On paper, these two vehicles appear to be very similar. The GT4 RS and GT3 share the same engine, though in slightly different states of tune (the Cayman’s produces 493 hp (500 PS / 368 kW), while the 911 produces 503 hp (510 PS / 375 kW). Despite being larger and more powerful than the Cayman, the 911 weighs 63 pounds (29 kilogrammes) less. Both cars have engines behind the driver, but the Cayman’s is ahead of the rear wheels and the 911’s is behind them. On paper, this gives the Cayman better weight distribution, but it also gives the 911 a driving character unlike anything else on the road.

As an RS model, the GT4 RS is only available with a PDK transmission, whereas the GT3 retains a stick shift. In the same vein, the regular GT4 is available in manual mode, whereas the new GT3 RS is only available in automatic mode. Both cars have a top speed of at least 9,000 rpm, which adds to their character, but the GT4 RS has an intake that passes directly through the cabin, providing occupants with a very unique aural experience.

Moving on to the track, they began with their 991 GT3 RS benchmark, which was, unsurprisingly, an incredible car to drive. Following that was the 992 GT3, which outperformed the old GT3 RS right away, remaining confident in almost every area where its competitor faltered. They discovered the new GT3 to be a car that allows them to go fast without completely depriving the driver of feeling.

The GT4 RS, on the other hand, surprised and impressed on the racetrack, exceeding the already lofty goals it set for itself on the road. On a proper circuit, the mid-engine layout truly made a difference, and it even outpaced the 991 GT3 RS down the back straight.

Despite being a purpose-built track weapon, the Cayman GT4 RS was described as having a certain playfulness and lightness to it that the 911 didn’t have, and for that reason, Everyday Driver chose the Cayman. However, with the release of the 992 GT3 RS, things may change in the near future.
