This week Porsche fans are celebrating the arrival of the newest addition to the iconic brand’s family: the Porsche Cayman GT4. It’s the first Porsche GT sports car based on the Cayman which features components of the 911 GT3.
[pull_quote_center]Its lap time of 7mins and 40secs on the North Loop of the Nürburgring, sets the Porsche Cayman GT4 as the new benchmark in its class.[/pull_quote_center]
This latest model demonstrates Porsche’s dedication and passion to continue promoting industry-leading two-door sports cars in the future.
The engine, chassis, brakes, and aerodynamic design of the Cayman GT4 are configured for maximum driving dynamics while retaining the versatility and everyday utility that are typical of the two-seater Porsche coupe.
UNDER THE BONNET
The Cayman GT4 is powered by a 385hp 3.8-litre flat-six engine derived from the 911 Carrera S engine. It transmits its power through a six-speed manual transmission with dynamic gearbox mounts.
It goes from 0 to 60mph in 4.2secs and its top track speed is 183mph. The chassis consists almost entirely of components from the 911 GT3. It features a 30mm lower ride height and a generously sized brake system.
The exterior of the Cayman GT4 highlights it as a member of the Porsche GT family and provides a clear distinction to related mid-engine coupes.
Its aerodynamic package is designed for downforce. It features three pronounced inlet openings at the front and a large fixed rear wing.
The interior of the Cayman GT4 focuses on maximising the experience of unfiltered driving enjoyment for both driver and passenger. Standard sport seats, which are upholstered in a combination of leather and Alcantara®, offer excellent lateral support.
The new Cayman GT4 sport steering wheel guarantees ideal control and direct steering feedback due to its compact dimensions.
