porsche-cayman-gt4

The newest member of the Porsche GT family has just been released, with the new Cayman GT4 entering the illustrious ranks. The GT4 has many of the components of one of it speedier cousins the 911 GT3 and is following in the footsteps of the perfected mid-engine Porsche cars like the 904 GTS, Carrera GT, 911 Gt1 to mention a few.

Even with its blistering test track pace, Porsche has not compromised the utility of its sport coupe 2-seater with the improvements of its engine, chassis, brakes and aero dynamics. Even with its power and speed, it is still drivable in everyday normal conditions on regular road surfaces.

On the exterior, Porsche designed the GT4 to stand out along side its non-GT cousins. The most outstanding feature is the large fixed GT wing at the rear end. At the front, you will notice bigger air intakes along with a chin spoiler affixed to the front bumper. These tweaks along with the 1.2 inch drop in ride height increases the down force of the Cayman GT4, keeping it glued to the road at high speeds.

In the cockpit of the new GT4, you get the usual sport seats upholstered in leather and Alcantara, with will support you when experiencing increased lateral acceleration. Driver-centric solutions like the ascending center console, places the gear lever closer to the sport steering wheel.

Options include racing carbon fiber bucket seats, the Sport Chrono Package which includes digital and analog performance displays, a Sports Plus button that stiffens the suspension, quickens the steering and enhances the throttle response and more features when in the racing mode at high speeds. Planning to take your new GT4 for a spin on the track? Porsche includes the “Track Precision App” that down loads important info to your smart phone.

Inspired by the 911 Carrera S, the Cayman GT4 has a naturally aspirated, 3.8 litre flat-6 that spews out 385 hp with the help of a 6-speed manual transmission fitted with dynamic gear box mounts. There are no automatic options for the Cayman GT4 and this is how it should, be according to the purists.

The GT4 chassis is pretty much a carbon copy of the 911 GT3 and can do 0 to 62 mph in 4.2 seconds and reach a top speed of 183 mph.

With its improved power, racier handling, better stopping power and greatly improved aerodynamic, the new Cayman has earned its GT name.

The new Porsche Cayman GT4 starts at 84,600 and they are expected in the US in July of this year. To learn more about the Cayman and other Porsche models, visit Porsche of Tucson.
