in the next few years, have lots of disposable income, no children and no real responsibilities, then the 2023 Porsche 718 Cayman GT4 RS should be at the top of your list.
The RS is a souped-up version of the already excellent 718 Cayman GT4 and driving enthusiasts are very excited. It promises to finally answer the question, what could the original Cayman do with the performance hardware of the Porsche 911?

The newest Cayman will benefit from upgraded suspension and more power, and if other RS models are any indication, it will also feature Porsche's PDK dual-clutch gearbox.
