  • why do i feel like an STI would be a funner car for 25% the price.

  • You think that V6 is great, you should see the one in my 2021 Ford GT.

  • Hey Joe, I entered to win this car because I love the GT4 and would love to own one. I had a good feeling about this giveaway car and as soon as I wanted it it popped up and in a wild color which is beautiful and striking so when I win this car I’m inviting you to Washington state to drive it whenever you’re here!

  • He may be a nice guy, but he always comes across as a complete, over-the-top asshole in these videos. Anyway, at least I got to see the car.

  • Is it a better experience than the GT350R?

  • Is it just me... Or does the Cayman look better than the 911 GT3?

  • Outdated interiors....

  • You look bored compared to driving the GT350 and 500. Of the 3, which would you choose?

  • Never been driven a Porsche but I'm happy because of your reaction joe love Porsche 😘😍💕🤗

  • I think watching these vids of all these cars i cant afford is affecting my mental health lowkey...lol

  • I hope they keep the manual….. the dual clutch is nice but a manual is just a so much better to drive it sucks the people that want manuals options are extremely limited

  • Love that color! Sammy hagar was driving a Ferrari when he did " I can't drive 55" 😆

  • Hey Joe awesome video!!! Love the GT4!!! I have had 17 Porsches, my last two were 911 with PDK tranny. I am ordering a SPYDER and will be getting the PDK so my wife can drive it too. Here in Washington DC the traffic is constantly hideous so she stresses when driving a manual so I cave on the manual for the PDK so I don’t receive marital conflict as I get multiple cars. My daily is a 911 Turbo S. Was waiting for the ZO6 but the SPYDER has won out over the C8. I like the green color but my Porsches are either red or yellow or silver. Keep on doing amazing reviews!!!!

  • why is this car so expensive? im a mustang guy and a 2020 gt for 45k gets you more horsepower and just as good of looking car as this...the interior on it is so basic for 100+k car, am i missing something?

  • Al Cantara 😂

  • Does our boy Raiti get a commission from the junk food vendors for the name drops????😂

  • "ON THROTTLE HERE WE GO" My new line whenever i floor it

  • Theres a UFO @18:32... anyone else see it?

  • I must've watched this video no less than 10 times. Amazing job. I noticed anything Porsche review gets lots of views.

  • It's such a shame Porsche kneecaps this car with the tall gearing from the factory, but they knew they had to do it because the Cayman can never be better than the 911, although with the right mods, this one can surely be better than most.

  • It's so refreshing watching your emotion when driving cars that you like. Literally every other automotive journalist has become jaded and unemotional regardless of what they drive. I hope you keep this enthusiasm.

  • stop with the junk food jokes!! you're in a luxury sports car for god's sake!!!

  • This dudes a dork

  • Love that color damn near perfect sports car but those cloth grab handles need to go! They gotta be kidding with that. How about carbon fiber handles or just real metal.

  • Sure do like the Python Green paint, wish GM had something like that for the C8. Car looks and sounds great, and from the On-Throttle reactions i can only imagine it drives great as well. I would have to zonk the cloth door handles personally, but i do like the in door Twinkie tray. Great job Joe and Lori!

    • @Alec i don't want to have a car wrapped to be honest. If i do get a C8 my color choices would be Rapid Blue or Elkhart Lake Blue Metallic, but it would be nice to see GM offer a green like this instead of some of their more traditional conservative offerings. I am really not planning on spending 100k on a C8, if i do get one it will be when the prices have returned to earth (if that ever happens). I suspect when the Z06 model comes out the "base" C8 will be less desirable, also when the chip shortage is resolved, etc.

    • If you're willing to spend 100k on a C8, why not spend the $1500 or so to get it wrapped in the color you like?

  • manual vs other automatic Im like hell no, but when its a PDK its a yes for me.

  • I drove the European Porsche Boxter 718s with the 2.5 turbo engine and 360hp (not tuned) and that was a quick and better ride then the 911. Awesome video, great conclusion, love the positive energy, keep going 💪🏻💯🏆

  • How does it compare to the GT3RS???

  • “Where’s my towel.” 😂

  • Why are you yelling at me?

  • Awesome job Joe!!! Love the passion. Gotta drive a Porsche one day. Great job Lorie too.

  • 🤔what’s PDK stand for?.. Pretty Damn Kool.?..👀 👉 Porsche Doppelkupplungsgetriebe (PDK) 👀

  • Awesome review of my favourite Porsche automobile they offer in their vehicle lineup. The Cayman GT4 is literal perfection from Porsche that is in line with the Porsche heritage on the track. Loved your excitement! Was smiling with you all the way! Great videography too and the final edit made it so enjoyable! 💯🙌

  • I shut this off early. I couldn't watch all of it.

  • DIAL 911 LOL AHAHHAAHAHAHAAH

  • YO RITI RIDE , I WOULD LIKE TO ASK THIS BIG QUESTION. I ENJOY UR REVIEW SO MUCH THAT ..YOUR A CAR GUY !!! LOL LMAO MY QUESTIONS IS ? U READY LOL WHAT IS UR FAVORITE CAR , SUV, AND SUPER CAR.... AND GIVE ME UR BEST AUTO MAKER... MINE IS ALWAYS HONDA N ACURA

  • Nice car - but I’ll never understand why people pick that green.

  • sounds like a chainsaw

  • CD player?

  • I’ve read the manual is geared to high for street fun. The PDK is the proper choice. The sounds are amazing just awesome. The looks are not my thing in green. Maybe black would help. Thanks for the fun drive and sounds.

  • That sound man,,, what a disappointment.

  • Original 987 Cayman is a future classic. Period.

  • 18:17 0 mph > 18:27 gaweeeeee!!!! passing by that Oldsmobile….at 120 mph!!! 😵‍💫

  • When you get your hands on the 2022 Ford F-150 lighting you should review it!

  • I forgot how bad the stock exhaust sounds like! 😂 I’m too used to my Akrapovic one!

  • Probably the single best car review I have seen ever.

  • Raiti...you are one of the best reviewers on youtube!

  • People need to get over the manual thing. There's a reason Ferrari, McLaren, Lamborghini and the like don't offer them. They're slow and antiquated. Buying the fastest trim of a model, and then neutering it with a manual is stupidity. Go spec a base Cayman with a manual. Not the ultimate performance version. $20 says the upcoming GT4 RS won't even get a manual at all.

  • Sick Porsche

  • Quick answer: yes. Longer answer: the (non RS) 911 has become the rich(er) old man's car they drive 10 mph below the speed limit on days it's guaranteed not to rain. The Cayman GT4 is now the car to get for guys that can't quite afford a 911 GT3 RS and want to use it like it should. On a track.

  • One of the Best cars on this Planet 🤗

  • Amazing review of an amazing piece of German engineering!

  • Why can't Americans makes cars that are as great as the European brands? Just pure amazement!!! On throttle!!! Ich liebe Deutschland!!!

  • Joe how are you I saw this video and it is a really good video is the there a spyder version of the porsche cayman gt4

  • awesome review! Double the tickets baby!!!

  • I wish the Mustang was same size and weight! That would be great wouldn’t it?

  • Yes. A 911 is no longer a "sports car". It is a fantastic automobile, but it's really a grand touring (GT) car.

  • This is me in my BRZ 😍. Love this!

  • Those downshifts are simply a piece of art. Unbelievable.

  • Buying one of these after amc squeezes :) GORILLA GANG

    • @Sloan Weekes lol going to go broke

    • Buying one of these after I short $AMC back down to the ground. 😝😅

  • Is it me or that start up looks slow

  • Great review Joe! The passion for this passion for this car really came through. You got me really excited about mine that I am scheduled to take delivery of on 6/3. Mine is PDK in Gentian Blue with Gold Wheels and Carbon ceramics. Question, how does the feel of this car compare to the GT350R? I know that they are very different layouts but both are super sharp but usable NA cars? I am going to be a very blessed owner of both but would love to know you opinion too. Thanks!

  • Yup. Man. Maybe one day. Porsche is still top of the game. This car is 10 out of 10

  • I am having fun just watching you doing the throttle.

  • You're very cool,Joe...👍👍

  • Joe , drive it to my garage in California. We shall explain later

  • Keep the Porsche’s coming Joe!

  • Beautiful car

  • I agree i rather have a 6 speed manual just for the fun factor

    • Then you've never driven a DCT at full tilt. Keeping your foot down and banging through the gears is amazing. Especially if you're on a proper track.

  • This kind of car is so far out of my league, I dont care to watch the beginning of the video. I just forward to the test drive to see Joe's pure joy, excitement and satisfaction driving a car like this.. Its great every time.

  • I thought for sure you were going to cry. That is one fun car to drive.

  • 👽👽👽👽👽👽👽👽👽👽 of 👽👽👽👽👽👽👽👽👽👽

  • Dialing 911 gets you a Porsche? *tries furiously *

  • Wow! Joe, that car is a beast , I think I’ll trade my C 43 for that.👍😎

  • Really nice in python green. The only thing I would’ve changed are the carbon bucket seats and I would’ve blacked out the Porsche logo in the back. And maybe I would’ve done a GT4 logo delete...other than that, it looks amazing

  • GT3 RS please!

  • 981 GT4 is better

  • I could tell my man joe was wanting that manual transmission from the opening full throttle lol

  • I love these super car reviews you do. The way you have the camera and the roads you drive on, I legit feel like I’m in the car.... I grab my couch cushion thinking it’s the Oh S bar on some of those corners lol

  • This is a Dream Car for Sure! With a 6 Speed Though.

  • Awesome channel. You earned yourself a new subscriber!!

  • Why is Quebec in Canada excluded from this giveaway draw. Ah man I am in the wrong part of the world...

  • Nice car. Only 125k. XD. Im too poor. lol.

  • Sweet ride for sure!

  • Dang, the drawing isn't until March 29, 2022. Ugh!

  • Mean green! Love everything about the GT4!

  • I wish they updated the manual for shorter gears ...the gears are way too long you can go to 80mph in 2nd gear that's no fun ,I want to go though multiple gears before getting arrested 😂

  • Wow, Raiti always has good things to say, but when he's shouting with excitement, that's when you know he's truly enjoying the car 😉

  • God i swear everytime I watch one of your videos it looks like youre gonna run into something...haha How fast are you usually going, cause to us it looks like way over 100

  • Enjoyed the vid but still not sure if the reviewer liked the car ?

  • Wow beautiful car

    • I am so glad that you like this one Jack!

  • If I could have any currently made Porsche this is probably the one. We Turo'd a 718 GTS it was absolutely amazing I can only imagine how this would drive.

  • Joe Raiti for next Top Gear host!

    • My pleasure my friend. You bring so much entertainment and joy to all of your reviews. You make it so easy to imagine the thrill of being in the driver's seat

    • Thanks for sating that!

  • Its like impossible to buy. Dealers don't have any slots available around me for a build. Maybe in 2022?

  • why is he screaming the whole video?

  • Glad I didn't miss this one 🏁🏆🏁

    • Thanks for letting me share it with you!

  • so corny

  • 10 seconds into the video and I already know this is my dream car. I'm 20 right now but someday, GETTING ME THAT GT4 😤
