Cayman GT4 RS



We had a club board of directors mtg Tue evening and one of the members drove her new GT4 RS. Stunning looking car and has a mean bark. She and her husband are trying to get 2K mi on it so he can drive it at our DE on the 29th. There's a 2nd GT4 RS on the loose in OMA sold by Porsche of Omaha. It's a blue/gray color. He's a DEer too, so maybe both will be in attendance in 2 wks.

I followed her for a while on the drive home. That car is so low it made Punkin look like a 4x4.

Having spent some time chasing one on track, I'll tell you that I think that car is about as close to a perfect car as one could possibly want.
So fully capable at EVERYTHING.
Love that car..

GT4RSs are ABSOLUTELY AMAZING specimens for sure!

Saw one last fall on track at VIR. Owner executed a rear diffuser "delete"... whilst performing some agricultural racing maneuvers

Have stills from my in-car vid but respect owner privacy.

Anywho... definitely would entertain trading the GT3 given opportunity on one that's for certain.

My friends with the yellow RS have been enjoying it at our various DEs this spring and summer. The only problem is it wears out a set of tires every w/e, sometimes in a single day. They come from the factory with some neg camber built in, but they've added more. I think they're all the way to -3.0. The gray RS wore out his tires in a day too, so this must be common. Guess $1500 is the price of every DE admission. Could get spendy at a 3 day DE.

Husker, are the front tires wearing out quicker than the rear ones..?

Got to talk to the RS owner today. He said the rears were wearing at the same rate as the fronts. He added that since he's been monitoring the tire pressures better (less air), the tires have been wearing better.

Maybe he read my article on tire pressures (pg 19).
