Forget about the 911 GT3 RS also debuting in Geneva this year, the most interesting vehicle at the Porsche stand is the Cayman GT4.
As the first Cayman to wear the Porsche GT badge, the Cayman GT4 signifies that this is a high performance, track focused version of the sports car.
Power for the GT4 comes from a 3.8-liter six-cylinder engine based on the one found in the 911 Carrera S. Making 385 HP, the Cayman is only available with a traditional six-speed manual transmission – the way it should be.
Riding 30 mm lower than a regular Cayman, the GT4 features a lot of parts borrowed from the 911 GT3. The front has three large air intakes that, combined with the large fixed rear wing, give the GT4 lots of track sucking down force. More optional performance equipment is available like ceramic composite brakes, carbon fiber seats and Porsche’s sport chrono package.
The Cayman GT4 is said to go from 0 to 60 MPH in 4.2 seconds on the way to a top speed of 183 MPH. More impressive, Porsche claims the GT4 laps the Nürburgring in just 7 minutes and 40 seconds.
The Cayman GT4 will start at $85,595 and should arrive in U.S. dealerships this July.
