The Porsche Cayman GT4 just may be a perfect car. It has suspension components from the track tested 911 GT3, an engine from a 911 Carrera S and a six-speed manual transmission all in a mid-engined package.
The GT4 is perfect for track days, weekend drives on a winding road or a daily commute. The styling gives a hint that this is not a normal Cayman in the same way a GT3 separates itself from Carrera. But can it be even better?
Do you have your eye on a new Porsche 718 Boxster or 718 Cayman, but aren’t able to afford one? What if the car literally paid for itself? We recently saw an article on The Drive that showed how to get a free Tesla Model S. This opened our eyes to an entirely different way of thinking.
Here is how you can own a Porsche 718 Cayman or Boxster for free. We’ll use the 718 Boxster S for our example as it is the most expensive of the current Boxster / Cayman lineup (outside of the sold out Boxster Spyder / Cayman GT4). This technique can be used for just about any car, but one that out the door costs under $90,000 is the best way to guarantee that you can get back the monthly payment.
Currently, the best values in used Porsches are the 986 and 996 generation cars. Both the Boxster (986) and 911 (996) offer a good amount of performance with prices of both being south of $20,000. In fact you can find a clean running early Boxster for as low as $5,000.
While the 996 will run you a bit more, you can find clean running early examples of the 911 For under $15,000 and we’ve seen a few as low $10,000. While there are a few things that attribute to these low prices, there is one major reason that they are so affordable, the Intermediate Shaft Bearing (IMS).
Porsche and Ferrari are rivals, but how did it get to be that way? Most models are marketed to different segments, but from a performance stand point they are extremely comparable. We have made this documentary style video that covers the history of the two makes and just how they became rivals.
Ellen DeGeneres is a big fan of Porsche (both the brand and a certain model). You may not know this, but she drives a Porsche Cayenne Turbo. It is fitting then that she was able to take full advantage of the new Porsche Experience Center in Los Angeles.
