Ford Mustang Mach 1 vs Porsche Cayman GT4 vs 718: DRAG RACE

We’ve got our hands on two Porsches – the Cayman GT4 and the entry-level 718. Alongside them, we’ve got the Ford Mustang Mach 1.

Now you may think it’s a bit of an odd line-up, but when you check out the stats, you’ll see there’s a method in our madness! Let’s start with the GT4. It’s powered by a 4-litre flat-six that can put down 420hp & 420Nm of torque. It’s RWD only and it’s also equipped with a six-speed manual gearbox. In terms of weight, it tips the scales at 1420kg.

Alongside it, we have the 718. Now it’s the entry-level, so it’s only powered by a 2-litre flat-four turbocharged engine that puts down 300hp & 380Nm. It’s also RWD, however, it’s the lightest car here, at 1365kg.

But that’s not all – it’s also the only automatic in the line-up! Then finally we have the Mustang. It’s got a HUGE engine – a 5-litre naturally-aspirated V8, no less! It also puts down the most power, with 460hp & 529Nn. However, it’s also the heaviest, weighing in at 1807kg, and just like the GT4, it’s a manual.

So what do you think – is the Mustang out of the running given the weight difference? And will the manual 718 take down the GT4? There’s only one way to find out – LET’S RACE!
