Porsche Reveals New Cayman GT4 with 380HP, Priced from $84,600*

Meet the newest and fastest member ever of Porsche Cayman family, the new GT4 with chassis components from the much-hyped 911 GT3.

The headline figures include the use of a 911 Carrera S-derived 3.8-liter flat-six engine…detuned from 395hp (400PS) to 380hp (385PS) and connected to a six-speed manual gearbox with dynamic gearbox mounts, with which it hits 100km/h in 4.4 seconds or 60mph in 4.2 seconds and a top speed of 295km/h or 183mph.

Porsche claims a Nürburgring lap time of 7 minutes and 40 seconds, which places it at the same level as the 997 GT3 and Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG, very close to the Lexus LFA (7:38.5) and just behind the 991 Carrera S (7:37.9).

On a far less interesting note, Porsche also informs that it can return a combined fuel economy figure or 10.3 l/100km (22.8mpg US ore 27.4mpg UK) on the European cycle.

According to the German firm’s press blurb, “the chassis – which features a 30 mm lower body position and a generously sized brake system – consists nearly entirely of components from the 911 GT3“.

You won’t have a hard time telling it apart from other Caymans thanks to the aerodynamic package comprising 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 pipes.

Passengers sit on a pair of sport seats upholstered in a combination of leather and Alcantara, with the driver getting a new Alcantara steering wheel.

On the options list, you’ll find a PCCB ceramic brake system, full shell seats made of carbon fiber reinforced plastic (CFRP), a custom Sport Chrono Package with the unique Track Precision app and a Club Sport Package.

Price wise, the new Cayman GT4 costs about two-thirds of a 911 GT3 at $84,600 excluding a destination charge of $995 (*), in the USA where it will arrive in July, and €85,779 in Germany where it will go on sale this March, right after its world premiere at the Geneva Motor Show.
