    • The Porsche 718 Cayman GT4 tops the BMW M2 CS, AMG GT S, 997 GT3, and Acura NSX around the Hockenheim GP

      The Porsche 718 Cayman GT4 is simply a hell of a track car. It took a bit of time but Porsche is finally allowing the lighter mid-engine platform to encroach on certain 911's and even top them in performance. This is despite the Cayman GT4 still being somewhat neutered in power compared to say a 991 GT3.


      Sport Auto lapped the Cayman GT4 around the Hockenheim GP circuit and it slayed some monsters including the new NSX and the Mercedes-AMG GT S. Both of those vehicles are more expensive and more powerful.

      The Cayman GT4 even tops the 997 GT3:
