Porsche Cayman GT4
Porsche is pulling out all the stops on the new Cayman as the German auto maker unveils the most track-ready version ever. Introducing the Porsche Cayman GT4.
In the past comparing the 911 to the Cayman would be foolish, but the past is the past. This 2-door beauty sports the same 3.8-liter flat six engine found in the 911 Carrera S, albeit a detuned version of the powerplant. That doesn’t mean this thing isn’t capable though. In fact, it’s quite the opposite. The sports car pumps out 380 horsepower and 310 lb-ft of torque, good enough for a zero to 62 mph time of just 4.4 seconds and tops out just north of 180 mph. All of that power is pumped through a 6-speed manual transmission. Porsche also lowered the ride height and borrowed suspension and brakes from the 911 GT3. So what does all this mean for you? It means a Nurburgring lap time of 7 minutes and 40 seconds, placing it in the top 50, and in the exact ballpark of the 997 GT3. The vehicle will make its debut at the Geneva auto show, and will carry a window sticker price of $84,600 when it hits showrooms.
