Porsche Cayman GT4 revealed with 911 Carrera S and GT3 components

Porsche fans have been arguing for years that Porsche wouldn’t make the Cayman more powerful and better as it would then step to close to the 911 range. Looks like it just happened as here is the new Cayman GT4 that draws heavily from the 911 Carrera S and the 911 GT3.

Described as a “clear statement that Porsche will continue to promote radical two-door sports cars in the future,” the Cayman GT4 features a new front fascia with a new mesh grille and front splitter, new wheels, rears spoiler, fixed rear wing, side scoops and a centre-mounted dual exhaust system. Ride-height is reduced by 30mm and the high-performance brakes are from the 911 GT3.

Power comes from a 3.8-litre flat-six with 385 hp, taken from the 911 Carrera S. The engine is linked exclusively to a six-speed manual with dynamic gearbox mounts. That is a big surprise as the 911 GT3 is offered only with a dual-clutch transmission.

0-62mph comes in 4.4 seconds and the top speed is 183mph. Nürburgring time is 7 minutes and 40 seconds, making it just as fast as the previous 2011 911 GT3.

The GT4 seems like a try enthusiast car!

The interior has no big surprises boasting leather and Alcantara sport seats as well as a sport steering wheel.

Option list includes carbon ceramic brakes, carbon fibre reinforced plastic seats, a special Sport Chrono Package with a unique Track Precision app and a Club Sport package.

The Cayman GT4 is now available to order with prices starting from £64,451. First customer deliveries are scheduled in the summer.
