Porsche 718 Cayman GT4 Scooped Trundling Through The Streets Of Stuttgart

The upcoming Porsche 718 Cayman GT4 has been filmed cruising through the streets of Stuttgart, Germany as it inches closer to its launch.

According to a number of sources, the 2020 718 Cayman GT4 will be powered by a naturally-aspirated 3.8-liter flat-six engine delivering 420 hp. That may not be 911 GT3 levels of power, but the Cayman GT4’s compact size and mid-engined layout means 420 hp should be more than enough.

Porsche owners love manual transmissions and the automaker will keep them happy by initially selling the new Cayman GT4 exclusively with a six-speed stick shift. Those who don’t want to row their own gears will have to wait a little longer for a PDK option to be made available.

Preliminary reports assert that the Porsche 718 Cayman GT4 will accelerate to 62 mph (100 km/h) in a brisk 4 seconds while the sports car’s top speed will sit at 185 mph (297 km/h). The previous-generation Cayman GT4 hit 62 mph in 4.4 seconds and could run through to a top speed of 183 mph (295 km/h).

This prototype filmed in Germany is fitted with the same aerodynamic upgrades we’ve seen featured on other testers. Consequently, there is a large fixed wing at the rear, an aggressive diffuser, and a prominent front splitter. The sports car also includes a set of sporty black wheels inevitably shod in exceptionally sticky rubber.

The new Cayman GT4 will also weigh less than its cheaper counterparts and could drop as much as 110 lbs (50 kg) on unnecessary weight.

The 2020 Porsche 718 Cayman GT4 will allegedly premiere at July’s Goodwood Festival of Speed.

    Yawn. Same old car.
    Just like with 911’s, far too boring.

      But, I can bet that you haven’t gotten behind the wheel of any of them. Some people say the 911 is the same for 50+ years, but it’s a recipe that’s never changed and it shouldn’t. It’s a shape that is iconic to Porsche, so why change a winning recipe thats been very successful for all these decades. R35 GTRs essentially are the same car since 2007 and the only change they ever got was in the headlights, but no one says anything. Hell, even the first gen Continental GT is over sixteen years old, it hasn’t even changed much until the third gen, which means that the first two generations have changed very little to nothing (the same body style, design, and even tech). When it comes to Porsches, its always gonna be subtle on the outside, but it’s a hell of a brilliant performer and delivers a lot of emotion and feel. There’s a reason for why it doesn’t change: it made Porsche as a brand what it’s known for. Sure, the Cayennes and Macans helped Porsche as a brand prosper, but keep in mind, the enthusiasts would mainly know Porsche for the Boxsters, Caymans, 911s, 918s, etc.

    Preuninger has stated gt4 will have NA not 3.8 liter as will not meet current pollution requirements leaving only choice as 4 liter MOTOR detuned from Gt3.

      Thats what I’ve read too. If it has the 3.8, it will be WAAAAAY less exciting.

  • SteersUright

    This car is starting to seem to be quite late to the party. The Cayman’s looks are no longer fresh, they’ve been around for too long and the interior, especially, is starting to look dated for its price class.
    I feel like they announced this years ago and we’ve seen spy shots for years too. It should’ve come out 2 years ago to really have been well received. Now it’s just like, “cool, its an old car with an awesome GT3 engine. Sure, I’d take one if somebody gave it to me”.
