After months of rumours and numerous spy shots, Porsche has officially unveiled the Cayman GT4 which will be shown to the public at the 2015 Geneva Motor Show next month.

New member of the Porsche GT family – the Cayman GT4

According to Porsche, this is the first time it introduces a GT sports car based on the Cayman which has components from the 911 GT3. The car is further dubbed as a clear statement that Porsche will continue to promote radical two-door sports cars in the future.

The GT4 is differentiated from lesser Cayman models by an aerodynamic package which is designed for downforce and comprises of three distinctive inlet openings at the front and a large fixed rear wing, a redesigned hood with an air inlet, new front bumper with bigger cooling vents and a lip spoiler, plus a rear diffuser with two central exhaust pipes.

Options include the PCCB ceramic brake system and full shell seats made of carbon fibre reinforced plastic (CFRP). There’s also a custom Sport Chrono Package with the unique Track Precision app and a Club Sport Package. The cabin is equipped with leather and Alcantara sport seats as well as a new sport steering wheel.

Technical aspects

Power comes from a 3.8-litre flat-six engine producing 283 kW, which is derived from the 911 Carrera S engine. It is connected to a six-speed manual transmission that enables the car to accelerate from 0-100 km/h in 4.4 seconds before hitting a top speed of 183 km/h. In addition Porsche claims that the Cayman GT4 lapped the Nurburgring track in seven minutes and 40 seconds, which places it just behind the 911 Carrera S sitting at seven minutes and 37 seconds.
