Yay, another car we have no hope of getting - at all.

£108K  - yeah, for the fortunate Porsche bum-lickers and prevalent YouTubers, Will come to the aftermarket at £150k and the Weissach pack will be a lot more.

However, enough of my jealousy. Fabulous car and actually enough for me to actually like a Cayman.  Significantly faster on track than the GT4 - looks a lot better too and some wicked aero.

All in all though, except for outright performance, it still makes the Emira look like excellent value.

 

 

If it has an engine, I am there to thrash it.

Andreas Preuninger definitely knows how to compellingly “big up” a new Porsche GT car. 
It looks like an absolute weapon, but it will be impossible to get one at the proposed £120k list price. Expect there’ll be at least a £30k+ premium from flipper’s. Perhaps even more after the respected hard core motoring journalists get their hands on road & track testing reviews out there:

I spoke to the sales guy at Brighton today and he said that they’ve sold their 1 allocation gt4 RS slot for £250k 🤯

A bit more than plus 30K

Agree with all you've said Jimmy. It's partly this approach and these type of owners (investors/speculators and not enthusiasts/drivers) that actively keeps me away from the brand as if I'm genuinely being honest, and not on the wind-up, Porsche do make some great sports cars.

 

Alcohol. Sex. Tobacco. Drugs. Chocolate.  Meh! NOTHING in this world is as addictive as an Evora +0. It's not for babies!    

The first guy to ride a bull for fun, was a true hero. The second man to follow him was truly nuts!

If you were still in Europe you could order it in Germany. Never seen any Porsche dealerships try this as they are owned and operated by Porsche themselves. Also never seen them turn down an order for a non-limited model.

 

And yes, I'm afraid the 718 GT4 RS will run circles around any Emira.

If you have the choice between a Stairway to Heaven and a Highway to Hell don't forget the Nomex®!
