Porsche 718 Cayman GT4 Scooped With A Possible 4.0L Flat-Six [New Images]

The Porsche 718 GTS offers an exciting blend of performance and handling but drivers looking to get the most of the car will want to hold off for the new 718 Cayman GT4.

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.
