2020 Porsche 718 Cayman GT4
Although many high-performance sports cars have forgone manual transmissions, the GT4 comes with a 6-speed manual gearbox as standard equipment. Drivers will immediately appreciate how amazingly well engineers set up the chassis of the 2020 Porsche 718 Cayman GT4 for performance driving. Although we’ve driven faster cars, full throttle in the GT4 is a deeply satisfying experience including the transmission’s lightning-fast short-throw shifter and unique engine growl. With the Cayman GT4’s sticky tires and Porsche Active Suspension Management, we discovered that every corner feels as if it could have been taken even faster. While under the Porsche influence, we really appreciated the auto blip option that makes every downshift smooth, accompanied by a nice bump in the exhaust note. Granted, the perfect sports car does not exist — but the 718 GT4 comes close.
