Porsche Cayman GT4

To make the GT4, you basically take a stock Cayman, add the 385 horsepower motor from a 911 S, and then add plenty of suspension and brake bits from the 911 GT3.

And, if it happens to come in bright yellow, all the better.

The overall look up-front is not drastically different than the regular Cayman.

Both the wing on the back and the fascia on the front provide functional downforce.

A lower diffuser helps, too.

The wing is even adjustable, in case you feel like tweaking things.

Space under the rear hatch is limited, but enough for a weekend getaway.

A double-clutch PDK box may be faster, but not as engaging as this six-speed.
