    136 miles on the clock. Friend-of-the-shop Arthur traded his 1 Series M Coupe for a Cayman GT4. I got a somewhat gentle break-in-miles ride. Every superlative that you've heard about this car is true and more. It's the best Porsche you can buy (unless your last name is Al Saud).

    Bangin'.

    Nice!! Will you be modding it? I just watched a video showing how it has the actual GT3 front suspension and a completely new, GT type, rear suspension instead of the regular Cayman one.

    Absolutely awesome. Yeah, it makes the 911 a dinosaur.

    The front end looks like the DuelL AG body kit for MINI

    That's because DuelL copied the look of the GT3 RS bumper.

    No modding needed. It's perfect.

    This won't be perfect.... Not until it rolls into my shop with a big bow around it and a note: "Here ya go Chuck", with the keys in the ignition...

    At that point it will be perfect...

    I saw the GT4 at the Porsche Rennsport Reunion and the GT4 replaced the GT3 as the car I need to own.

    I haven't driven one, yet. Actually, I haven't seen one in person, yet. I like the Boxster/Cayman platform with its mid-engine arrangement. That should make a fun track toy.
