First GT Sports Car based on the Porsche Cayman

 2015 Porsche Cayman GT4_2 Porsche has introduced a new member in its proud GT line-up, the Cayman GT4. This is the first time Porsche is introducing a GT sports car based on the Cayman which has components of the 911 GT3. The latest GT4 is set for a Geneva Motor Show world premiere, and has achieved an under 8 minutes, specifically 7:40, lap time at the Nurburgring’s North loop, quite recently.

On its exterior, the Cayman GT4 is clearly differentiated from related mid-engine coupes. Three distinctive inlet openings at the front and a large fixed rear wing are part of an aerodynamic package which is systematically designed for downforce. Options to upgrade include the PCCB ceramic brake system, full shell seats made of carbon fibre reinforced plastic (CFRP), a custom Sport Chrono Package with the unique Track Precision app and a Club Sport Package.

The interior of the Cayman GT4 is designed for unfiltered driver and front passenger driving enjoyment. They sit on sport seats, upholstered in a combination of leather and Alcantara, which are distinguished by exemplary lateral support. The new GT4 sport steering guarantees ideal control and direct steering feedback due to its compact dimensions.

The engine, chassis, brakes and aerodynamic design of the Cayman GT4 are configured for maximum driving dynamics; yet the GT Cayman still retains the versatility and everyday utility that are typical of the two-seat Porsche coupe. It is powered by a 3.8-liter flat-six engine with 385 hp, which is derived from the 911 Carrera S engine. Its power is always transmitted by a six-speed manual gearbox with dynamic gearbox mounts.

The Cayman GT4 accelerates from zero to 100 km/h in 4.4 seconds; its top speed is 295 km/h. The chassis features a 30 mm lower body position and large-sized brakes. The GT4’s combined fuel consumption 10.3 l/100 km and emissions come up to 238 g/km.

Porsche Cayman GT4: A Cayman amidst the GT force

Fit for track, the GT4 is the first Porsche Cayman with downforce at both axles. Technical aspects of the new GT sports car are based on the 911 GT3. As a mid-engine sports car and a prime example of driving dynamics in its class, it follows the conceptual tradition of the best speedsters by the Stuttgart based sports car makers such as; the 904 GTS, 911 GT1, Carrera GT and 918 Spyder.
