The Corvette Z06 is cheaper than the 718 GT4 (let alone its RS variant) because it's still technically a muscle car (it's complicit in that it's got a brutish design with a nameplate history affiliated with muscle cars of yore, even though it doesn't share the same 4- or 5-seat design as the overt muscle cars). It doesn't share the same luxurious qualities, and even if it used a Cadillac badge it would still be cheaper than at most the standard 911 GT3.

I would say that the C8 Z06 is the first Anti-Muscle Corvette.

The Porsche 718 GT4 RS is the last entry-level supercar ever, like it or not. The entry-level supercar segment, where the Ferrari 458, Lamborghini LP580 and McLaren 570S belonged, is basically dead. (The 488/F8, LP610/Evo, and the entire Super Series are mid-level supercars.)

"The two-seater weighs only 1,415 kilograms, with a full fuel tank and without a driver as defined by the DIN standard"

1415kg even with a full tank of fuel. That's pretty impressive considering how much bigger and heavier cars have become as of late. This means the car with less than a full tank of gas could easily be under 1400kg on the scales. I dont want to see someone cry foul again saying Porsche have cheated because the car was 10kg lighter than the curb weight, while on a 3/4 tank of fuel...

Quote>"The 4.0-liter flat-six is pulled straight from the Porsche 911 GT3, though in the mid-engine Cayman it only makes 493 horsepower (368 kilowatts). Torque checks in at 331 pound-feet (449 Newton-meters), also a bit less than the 911 GT3, but the engine still hits all the high notes with a 9,000-rpm naturally aspirated redline."

Quote>"You'll also find lightweight glass for the rear window, lightweight doors, and the result is a 3,227-pound (1,464-kilogram) curb weight. Combined with the high-output engine, the 718 Cayman GT4 RS boasts a power-to-weight ratio of 6.5 pounds per hp."

Quote>"Setup in racetrack-specific Performance mode, the GT4 RS offers 25 percent more downforce compared."
