The Cayman GT4 is one of the most exciting and controversial cars to come out of Porsche’s skunkworks in years. Based on the standard Cayman, the GT4 features much more aggressive bodywork including a deep chin spoiler, larger intakes, and a massive rear spoiler. All this bodywork serves two purposes: cooling and downforce. The large air intakes at the front of the vehicle supply cooling air to the three forward radiators as well as the forward brakes to prevent brake fade after repeated use. It is no question that the large rear wing’s purpose is to keep the Cayman GT4 firmly planted to the ground. The wing is adjustable as well to allow personal tailoring to suit whatever track you might be at.
Mechanically the Porsche Cayman GT4 shares more with the 911 than it does its other siblings. The Cayman GT4 is powered by the 3.8L flat-six engine right out of the 911 (991.0 year) and produces an impressive 385-hp and 309 lb/ft of torque. This power combined with a weight right under 3,000 lbs gives the GT4 an impressive power to weight ratio of 7.6 lb/hp. Along with the engine being out of the 911, the front suspension of the Cayman GT4 was actually plucked from the 911 GT3 sportscar although retuned to suit the GT4 better. The Cayman GT4 has large brake disks that are actually made out of a composite material to make them lighter however if you plan on taking your GT4 onto a track then we suggest fitting your GT4 with Porsche’s carbon ceramic brakes. These brakes have been proven on a number of Porsche vehicles to ensure even brake feel and minimal fade. A manual transmission is the only available option. #freethemanual
The interior of the Cayman GT4 is minimal to say the least. The steering wheel is trimmed in lightweight Alcantara as is much of the cabin and even the seats have gone on a diet. For those looking for a real aggressive setup can select the carbon fiber racing seats that have been plucked right out of the 918 Spyder hypercar and even replace the multimedia system with… nothing. Yes, those looking to use their GT4 mostly on track can have the media system deleted to reduce overall weight (we suggest just considering a diet first). Even the grab handles have been replaced with strips of cloth to reduce weight and to show anyone who might be riding with you that you are in a purebred racer. Although if weight was #1 then you wouldn’t have anyone with you, would you?
The Cayman GT4 is proof that Porsche can make the rest of their lineup amazing and not just the 911. Although maybe not the best daily driver this Cayman will still prove its worth anytime you it steps onto a racetrack. The Porsche Cayman GT4 competes against other track-ready cars such as the BMW M4 Coupe, Chevrolet Corvette Stingray, and Jaguar F-Type.
