I've BOUGHT a Porsche 718 Cayman GT4! Collection Day of the Surprise New Shmeemobile
There's a surprise new addition to my garage, a Porsche 718 Cayman GT4! Having owned the 981 GT4, when this car came up it had to happen. With the GT4 arriving, we also have the new Flat 6 collection: cheers.shmee150.com/collectio...
After buying the Porsche Taycan Turbo S at the end of last year from Porsche Centre Hatfield, it's back out this time around in the Ford GT to collect the latest acquisition. Coincidentally the GT and GT4 being the two 6-cylinder cars in my current garage, both mid-engine sports/super cars but very, very different in so many ways.
My 718 Cayman GT4 itself is finished in Carrara White with the same Aurum Gold wheels as my Taycan, as well as wearing the bright yellow PCCBs. On the inside it features the 918 carbon buckets with yellow stitch and details throughout, but crucially for me it is also a 6 speed manual GT4 despite the line-up now also offering a PDK variation as well.
Back in 2015 I bought a 981 GT4 and what a car it was; forming one third of the Blue Crew with my McLaren 675LT and Ferrari FF, although it sadly made way at the time for the Aston Martin Vantage GT8 as I could not keep both simultaneously. Ever since, it's probably been one of the most missed Shmeemobiles from a personal perspective and the pure driving enjoyment it brought, much of which I echoed when I first drove a 718 GT4 which belonged to my friend @ZenCarDriver a little over a year ago.
After pulling back the covers in the showroom, it would be wrong not to take it immediately for a first drive, especially given there's no running in required this time around! However, things are going to be changing and most likely it will be wrapped in the very near future so stay tuned for the look I'm planning on that front.
