Recently snapped undisguised, the Cayman GT4 is distinguished by an aggressive front fascia and a small vent beneath the hood. The sporty styling continues further back as the model has lightweight wheels and a high-performance braking system with cross-drilled rotors and red brake calipers. The model also features a fixed rear wing, an aggressive diffuser, and a dual exhaust system.
Our spy shooters couldn’t get close enough to snap interior photos but the previous Cayman GT4 was equipped with a sports steering wheel, leather / Alcantara sport seats, and lightweight pull straps on the doors.
While the previous model featured a 3.8-liter flat-six engine derived from the 911 Carrera S, the all-new model will reportedly have a detuned version of the 4.0-liter flat-six that resides in the 911 GT3. In the latter model, it produces 500 PS (368 kW) and 460 Nm (339 lb-ft) of torque.
The engine is expected to produce at least 400 PS (294 kW) in the Cayman GT4 and that would give it an edge over the Cayman GTS which has a turbocharged 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine developing 365 PS (269 kW) and up to 430 Nm (317 lb-ft) of torque. Regardless of the final rating, the model is expected to be offered with a manual transmission and an optional PDK gearbox.
Rumors have suggested the Cayman GT4 could debut at the Geneva Motor Show next month but we’ll find out soon enough.
