The Porsche Cayman GT4 in many ways is the best high performance car for the street. It has plenty of usable power with 385 horses, is fairly lightweight by today’s standards, the engine is in the middle and it has suspension parts from the 911 GT3. The Cayman GT4 provides a race car for the street experience that doesn’t need a track to enjoy.

For those fortunate enough to buy the GT4 before it sold out (and not including the massive dealer markup), for about the price of a base 911 Carrera, you could get the GT4 with 35 more horsepower, mid-engined balance and more aggressive styling.

Yes, the Cayman GT4 is an excellent car, but can it be made just a bit better?

The Lotus Exige is an ultra lightweight sports car. Unlike other automakers that offer as many features as they can, Lotus asks how little can we put into a car. For those looking on the used market, the result is a car that weighs in at just 2,089 lbs (depending on the year).

That means the small performance machine weighs about the same as a postage stamp. With the Exige in S 260 Sport form, you get a car with 257 horsepower. That makes for a vehicle with a really good power to weight ratio, but how does it compare to other high performance machines.

There are a few ways that Porsche ownership usually goes. People will either keep it mostly stock or start modifying it. Often when you go the modification route, it starts with one or two small mods and then it can quickly snowball into a much bigger project.
