Porsche Cayman GT4 Snapped Testing

Just after the very first details about it emerged, the upcoming Porsche Cayman GT4 has been spied testing on the German roads near the famous Nurburgring for the first time.

Details about the car remain unclear and it isn’t yet known if the Porsche Cayman GT4 will be based around the next-generation Cayman or simply the current car. Either way, Porsche has two powertrain options.

Porsche Cayman GTS and Boxster GTS

The first is an upgraded version of the flat-six engine currently utilised by the Cayman and Boxster and currently producing 340 hp in range-topping Cayman GTS specification. However, there is a possibility that the Porsche Cayman GT4, also likely to be offered in Boxster specification as the RS Spyder, will make use of an inline-4 cylinder turbocharged engine which could utilise a similar hybrid setup to the Porsche 919 Hybrid endurance racer.

It remains unclear just how much power the Porsche Cayman GT4/Porsche Boxster RS Spyder could produce but it could cost around $125,000 in the United States and feature a similar PDK transmission to the incredible one found in the 2014 Porsche 911 GT3.

Alongside the power upgrades, this prototype is sporting an aggressive front splitter as well as a prominent rear wing. Elsewhere, the cabin is likely to be stripped out to reduce weight and make the Porsche Cayman GT4 the perfect mid-engined sub-400 horsepower sports car!
