One is the mid-engined coupe from the company that perfected the 911. The other is based on a Volkswagen Golf platform. But there is one department in which the Audi TT RS trumps the 718 Cayman S.
Other than both having 2.5-liter engines, these two vehicles don’t share anything. And even that is the case of four-cylinder boxer turbo versus inline-five turbo.
But you can really tell that Audi invested a lot of time and effort into the development of this 400 hp performance lump. We really wouldn’t be shocked if the R8 ends up having the 2.5 TFSI instead of the V6.
By contrast, this has to be the first Porsche in the long time where everyone thinks they have taken a step backward. Turbocharging has left the Cayman sounding like the regular Subaru STI.
Just have the listen to this exhaust sound comparison video. Not only does the Audi TT pack more decibels, but it sounds no less exotic than the RS6 performance. Well, I don’t think it can even be a question of preference because a high-revving redemption is off the table for the Porsche.
It’s worth pointing out that the Jaguar F-Type S Coupe is also the good way of spending silly money. And its supercharged V6 falls in between these two for output and has the classic orchestral soundtrack you can never get tired of.
