2019 Porsche 718 Cayman GT4 Sheds More Camo For Latest Round Of Testing

To no one’s surprise, the 2019 718 Cayman GT4 has been snapped testing once again at the Nurburgring.

The prototype appears to be production ready and thanks to having less camouflage compared to previous scoops, we can take a closer look at its design.

In addition to the large rear wing, which will pretty much be a point of reference when it comes to distinguishing the GT4 from the rest of the 718 Cayman family, it also adds some aerodynamic updates.

Complementing the looks will be the bigger wheels, and making sure that the car handles and stops better than lesser 718 Cayman versions will be the stiffer suspension and larger brakes.

The naturally aspirated symphony of the latest 911 GT3 will, allegedly, be carried over into the new 718 Cayman GT4. However, the 4.0-liter flat-six unit will be detuned, probably producing some 400 PS (394 hp / 294 kW), or about 100 PS (99 hp / 74 kW) less than the 911 GT3.

Previous reports hinted that the Cayman GT4 will be offered with a six-speed manual gearbox for purists,as well as a dual-clutch PDK.

Thanks to the aerodynamic updates, extensive work made beneath the skin and the adoption of a very impressive engine, the new Porsche Cayman GT4 will not just handle, but go like stink, too. As a reference, the (larger but more powerful) 911 GT3 hits 100 km/h (62 mph) in 3.2 seconds with the PDK or 3.3 seconds with the manual gearbox, and tops out at 317 km/h (197 mph) and 318 km/h (198 mph), respectively.

We expect the GT4 to post a 0-100 km/h time of around 4.0 seconds, as Porsche would never allow it to come too close to the GT3.

        you can hear pressure release on some downshifts, not always there but you can hear it from time to time

        • Vassilis

            I don’t think that’s the waste gate man. It may be the brakes.
