    The PDK trans is a joy, but it's so easy and fast that it definitely reduces driver effort and involvement. But put together GT and a number, and you almost assuredly have a hair-raising sports car. Select second gear, feed torque well before the apex, tighten the line, and boot it. And for the purist it has a driver-intensive manual transmission with one of the best shifters to be found anywhere. Simplicity is the watchword for this car, and so the GT team pruned the electronic systems and adjustable doodads that are so prevalent on modern Porsches.

    Porsche Cayman GT4 First Drive - MotorTrend

    Gliding through Portimao's Samsung corner, former World Rally Champion Walter Rohrl is driving the Cayman GT4 very, very quickly, but by now I've spent enough time with the car to sense it's got some left in it. As we exit Turn 9, Rohrl glances in the mirror at the three GT4s tailing us. His face, already stoic, tightens slightly. His eyes narrow, and his body language is suddenly slightly but obviously more serious.

    Rohrl is driving the GT4 for everything it's worth. Three corners later, he backs off a bit, looks over at me, and says dryly, "Sometimes you have to show them who is the chief. It's there, at the razor's edge, where I finally appreciate just how good the GT4 is. Rohrl has left the traction and stability control on, and they never make themselves known, even allowing him to rotate the car several degrees at corner exit.

    It's immediately clear to me the car wants to go even faster, but we've reached the limit of what the best street tire can do. For his part, Rohrl doesn't appear to be working any harder.

    He's just shifting faster and braking less. On the next lap, I ask him if he would change anything aside from the tires if he were to enter the car in a race. One would expect a Porsche brand ambassador to say nice things about the new car, but I get the impression Rohrl would happily compliment the GT4 for free. After all, there's very little not to compliment.

    Most people want to talk about the engine, which we will, but really, the goodness starts at the corners. The front suspension and tires have been pulled part and parcel from the GT3.

    The rear suspension is upgraded with a new knuckle and helper springs, hidden behind the widest tires ever factory-fitted to a Cayman. All four corners get active dampers and ball joints for suspension mounts.

    The tires are Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2s. They're assisted by a big, fixed rear wing, a small ducktail spoiler below it, and a big front splitter. Together, they generate pounds of downforce minimum and more than pounds if you manually adjust the wing and remove the spats ahead of the front wheels. The result is a car bewilderingly easy to drive fast.

    With more grip than power, it takes a concerted effort to upset the chassis in any way and far more effort to keep it upset. Short of entering in a professional rally event, you won't find the limits of its grip on the street. Even bumps and holes can't shake it. When we nailed an unseen mid-corner dip with the left rear tire at high speed, I have no doubt that tire left the ground, but the two were immediately put back into contact, and the chassis registered only the slightest shimmy.

    Very few cars in the world exhibit this sort of completely unshakeable grip and the resulting driver confidence, and one of them has a 3 in its name rather than a 4. On top of it all, the ride quality is shockingly good. Normal mode is tuned for the rough and tough Nurburgring Nordschleife, and as a result the car rides very well on underfunded public roads.

    Is The Porsche GT4 The Best Sports Car EVER?
