They said it would never happen. They said Porsche would always dumb down the 718 (Cayman) so that it didn’t cannibalize the 911. Well, in a way, “never” just happened. Porsche has announced that the GT3 motor is now available in the 718. It isn’t called the 718 GT3; instead, they’ve dubbed it the 718 GT4 RS. Okay, whatever.
