What makes the GT4 finally feel like a Cayman is the power. The German automaker has finally given the power to the Porsche Cayman GT4 that it deserves.
The mid-engine sports car is equipped with the power of a true 911 Porsche and it finally feels like one. The Cayman GT4 is a limited production vehicle and those who want to get their hands on it, better hurry up.
Starting from the most important aspect, the Cayman GT4 gets a 3.8-liter V6 engine, the same one that is used for the 911 Carrera S. Producing 385hp and 305 lb-ft of torque, the GT4 is an excellent sports car that can also be used for daily driving in the city, highway and even mountain roads. But that is the most powerful version. For those who want a “slower” experience, Porsche offers the Cayman with a 2.7-liter 275hp V6 engine, a Cayman S with 3.4-liter V6 engine pulled by 325 ponies, and a GTS version with a 340hp engine. But none of them comes close to the Cayman GT4 and its speed.
The DNA of the Porsche Cayman GT4 has been completely modified and the result is a race car that can sprint to 60mph in just 4.4 seconds. From a purist standpoint, the Cayman GT4 offers the best experience with a six-speed manual transmission and a rear-wheel drive.
We mentioned that the body of the GT4 has been completely changed and the first thing to notice is that the chassis is lowered by 30mm. With the center of gravity lowered, the GT4 sticks to the road and feels connected to the track. On the outside, Porsche has added character to the visual outlook of the car, with a more aggressive front. Functionality is also a key aspect, as the sports car has three openings for better air circulation and front brakes cooling. On the rear, Porsche has placed a bigger aluminum spoiler. Toss in the side blades for extra air intake and the Cayman GT4 is the best sports and race car for its price. The GT4 has exclusive 20 inch tires, with alloy rims painted in platinum color.
The last question you need to ask is whether you want and need the Cayman GT4. With a price tag of $95,000 for the entry model, it isn’t the cheapest car on the market. However, it is among the cheaper Porsche models and while it doesn’t have the power of the 911 GT3, it is still a muscle car, even if you want to take to the tracks.
