New Porsche 718 Cayman GT4 Comes Out With Hardly Any Camo

It looks like Porsche has begun testing the new 718 Cayman GT4 on public roads, and unlike earlier this month, there’s no doubt we’re looking at the real thing.

On top of that, the car is hardly wearing any camouflage, which is both surprising and greatly appreciated, since we can see pretty much everything except for the interior.

On the outside, all the proper GT4 parts are there to see in plain sight, including the aggressive rear diffuser, fixed wing, and large front bumper, which by the way looks chunkier than it did on the previous car.

Now, while the current 718 Cayman is powered by a turbocharged flat-four, the GT4 will reportedly get a de-tuned version of the high-revving 4.0-liter six-cylinder unit found on the latest 911 GT3, and since the previous GT4 (Cayman sans the 718) put down 385 PS (379 HP), expectations are that the new one will exceed 400 horses, controllable with the help of a manual gearbox or an optional PDK transmission.

With the automaker sending this prototype out in the wild looking the way it does, it’s possible that the new Porsche 718 Cayman GT4 is only months away from its public debut.

    So no GT4 RS? Not like I’m dissapointed with “only” a GT4…I’m just curious because I heard rumors of one.

    the rear wing looks more like a bolt-on to a current 718 as the factory active spoiler is present as well.

    haha porsche dont need to camouflage their new models cause they will always look like their predecessors

    Prediction: With the controversial nature of the 918 switch to an all-turbo-4 engine lineup, the GT4’s six will vault it to even greater collector status than the manual 911R.

    hopefully they fixed the gearing … like this car a lot. Hate that motortrend tracked a 718 cayman S as fast as a Gt4

    Sweeeet!!!

  • Trackhacker

    What is the point of “camo” if the car looks exactly like the previous one haha.

  • Auf Wiedersehen

    OK so by Porsche’s own marketing it’s NOT a 718 then. Interesting exhaust for a Cayman/Boxster. Prediction: It will not be included as a 718 on the website or marketing. Technically the 718 is a 982 so this will follow that. 982 GT4 but marketed just as GT4.
