This Summer is the beginning of a new generation – a new generation for Porsche lover’s. The debut of the Porsche Cayman GT4 available in the states in one month, but hold on, it’s sold out. Only 2500 total were manufactured and around 600 of those are headed to the states.
So what’s the scoop? Well, Porsche went above and beyond on this new model by grabbing it’s best components from other models and putting it all into one. The GT4 is geared toward performance. It’s more affordable and lighter in weight than the GT3. So, why is this better? It’s a vehicle you can test your limits on the track, enjoy on the street, and brings back the original spirit of Porsche.
The Porsche Cayman GT4 shares the same engine from the the 911 Carrera S model, a 3.8 liter flat-six and carrying 385 hp. It shares the same front suspension as the 911 GT3, but the rear suspension is amped up on the GT4. It has a six speed manual transmission and will go 0-60 in 4.2 seconds. The new aerodynamic development on the bodywork creates more down force, which means more control at higher speed.
The comfort level of the GT4 is set to a high standard. The driver-centric solutions such as ascending center console, lateral supported seating, and the CDR audio system, to name a few prime options. More options for the interior are the sport seats or full bucket seats, PCM (Porsche Communication Management) system which is the hub for navigation, audio and communication. There is also the optional Sport Chrono package that includes a stop watch, a track precision app that stores and evaluates lap record times. Door openers are door straps. Bolsters and headrests are covered in leather which is also found in the trim around the dashboard. The rest of the seat is covered in black Alcantara™. The stitching on the seats, steering wheel, dashboard, and accents come in a standard gray, but can be swapped for a black, red, or yellow that complement the exterior color schemes.
So, be on the look out and maybe you’ll catch a glimpse, a ride, or even a test drive. The word is out, these are hot! Porsche has outdone themselves again! Porsche is and always will be Image Motorsports first love!
