This is going to sound elitist as hell, but if you’re into performance cars, you either appreciate Porsches or you’ve never driven one. They’re just so dang sharp, smooth, and impressive. The new 718 Cayman GT4 RS might not be the flat-out fastest car in the German automaker’s stable, but with a very small body and a stratospheric redline, it may very well be the coolest.

I try not to share too many press photos you’re likely to see all over the internet here in our daily Feature Photo section but man, this car is just something I want to drink up. It’s the rolling embodiment of hardcore driving machine and looks every inch an absolute beast.

The Drive has a nice little 2022 Porsche 718 Cayman GT4 RS rundown you can check out for some details, but the highlights are: It’s a 3,227-pound Cayman with a naturally aspirated flat-six claiming 493 horsepower. Porsche promises 0 to 60 mph in 3.2 seconds, and a top speed of 196 mph.

If you’re still curious for more specs, Porsche’s own release has a healthy serving.

I’m smitten.
