Remember that Porsche Cayman GT4 we reported on awhile back, set to be the first factory-built, Cayman-based race car offered by the wizards of Stuttgart? It’s finally been spotted strutting about in its own skin, naked and unafraid.
Road & Track has the spy photos, which show the unclad Porsche Cayman GT4 speeding down a German highway. The car will supplant the Cayman GTS (pictured above) as the most fearsome Cayman offering. In fact, the GT4 is all set to be to the Cayman what the 911 GT3 is to Porsche’s most celebrated flagship model: a hardcore, track-ready performance machine with the capacity for everyday drivability.
Road & Track reported on some of the changes evident from these photographs of the Porsche Cayman GT4; new wheels encircle some massive new cross-drilled brake rotors, the ride height appears to be lower to the ground, and there’s the obvious high-placed rear wing for extra stick. Despite this, we still don’t know what kind of mill sits behind the driver. Rumored possibilities include the 911’s flat-6 and a turbocharged flat-4, with some possibility for supplementary electric motors.
The Porsche Cayman GT4 is expected to emerge as a 2016 model year car, so fasten your seatbelts; more details are imminent.
