Porsche announced the addition of a new member to their family --
the Cayman GT4. The world will witness the premiere of the Cayman GT4 early in
March at the Geneva International Motor Show. The show will be held from March
5 to 15, 2015. The car is set to arrive at U.S. dealerships by July 2015. It is
the first Porsche GT sports car which is based on the Cayman platform and
features components of the 911 GT3 as well. The Cayman GT4 has clocked a lap
time of 7.4 minutes on the North Loop of Nürburgring. The Cayman GT4 has match
the record of the 2011 911 GT3 on that track which gives it a position atop its
market segment. Porsche has once again displayed its commitment to make
industry leading two-door sports cars which are developed at the Motorsport
department in Weissach.
The Cayman GT4 has been built
for highest driving dynamics through re-configured engine, chassis, brakes, and
aerodynamic design. The car is powered by a 385bhp, 3.8-liter flat-six engine
which has been derived from the 911 Carrera S engine. The car transmits its
power through a six-speed manual transmission with dynamic gearbox mounts. The
Cayman GT4 can achieve a maximum speed of 294kmph and can go from 0-100kmph in
a matter of 4.2 seconds.
On the outside the Cayman GT4 gives it a distinct resemblance to the
Porsche GT family. The car has a systematically designed aerodynamic package
which has been designed for enhanced downforce using three inlet openings in
the front and a fixed rear wing. Porsche is also offering its customers an
option to enhance the performance capabilities of Cayman GT4 by including the
Porsche Ceramic Composite Brake (PCCB) system, full bucket seats made of carbon
fiber composite and a custom Sport Chrono Package which features a track precision
app. The inside you find standard sport seats which are upholstered in a combination
of leather and Alcantara. The Cayman GT4 sport steering wheel guarantees ideal
control and direct steering feedback due to its compact dimensions.
